It only took me months.

Willow’s Friends Surprise Her is up on Create Space!  It will slowly filter into other stores from there.  I will share links in the next few days.

Willow Book Three is almost live!Willow's Friends Surprise Her

The next book in the Bree’s shadow puppet series is one step closer to going live.  I am waiting to here back from Create Space.  I haven’t decided if I’m going to offer it as an ebook or not yet.  So far we have only been selling paperback versions.  It was a lot of extra work turning it into an ebook.  I will share the links as soon as it goes live.

Cover Reveal

After I gave up I neglected this website a bit.  It was kind of up to date and that was fine.  What I hadn’t shared was the tentative new cover for the next Willow book.  So I will do that today!

Here is the link to Willow Visits Her Friends now available as an eBook on Nook!!

Willow Visits Her Friends: A Book of Shadow Puppets by April Parker | 2940151969987 | NOOK Book (eBook) | Barnes & Noble.

Willow Visits Her Friends has been approved into Smashwords Premium Program!  It took a little longer for it to get reviewed for this but it has successfully passed and has been included in the program.  Now we just wait and see if Nook, Apple or Kobo pass it and place it on their eBook eStores.

Anxiously awaiting news as to the Premium Status of Willow Visits Her Friends from Smashwords.  Willow Travels the World has already achieved it and it was only posted a short time before maybe an hour.  I am beginning to worry that there was an error in my formatting for the Premium Program.  Keep your fingers crossed, maybe they are just swamped with books that are eligible for the program.

Exciting News!

Willow Visits Her Friends is now available through Smashwords!  I am hoping this opens up a lot more distributors for Brianna’s books.  Also Willow Travels the World is now available on Amazon in paperback!

I must admit with every step forward I make in this endeavor to help Brianna make a book, now two, I am realizing how much work goes into your book after you write it, if you publish on your own.  Even using services like CreateSpace and Smashwords.  Terms of Agreements sometimes take all afternoon to read, then there is the reformatting from your print version to an eBook compilable file and then the waiting to find out if it was approved to go live after all the time and energy you have all ready invested.  I have a new found respect for the process.

Willow 2 is Live!

Willow Travels the World is live and available for purchase on Kindle and in paperback on CreateSpace!  Amazon and Barnes & Noble availability for paperback will follow in a few days.

I couldn’t be more proud of this accomplishment my girl is sharing with me.

Passing on Apple

for now

I think for now until I have a better understanding of the publishing process and Apple’s requirements for placing eBooks on thier site I am going to wait.  I went ahead and got both books, yes I said both books, all set up into an apple template just in case I change my mind.  I gladly will take suggestion on this matter from any familiar with using Apple for eBooks.

Back to the “both books” part, I have submitted the next book in the Shadow Puppet series, Willow Travels the World, to both Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) and CreateSpace.  Currently I am just waiting on an email from both telling me they are live!  The next step for the Shadow Puppets series is Nook.  I hope, since Google isn’t taking anyone new at this time.

Here’s the paperback cover of Willow Travels the World.

Switched Hats!

I switched hats tonight going from a writer to publisher so instead of working on the second Willow adventure, I uploaded files to Kindle for the ebook version of Willow Visits Her Friends.  After a few minor edits to the description, a whole conversion from docx to jpeg and the informational portion of the process I made it to the pricing section and my brain is too tired to decide between 35% and 70%.  So I am off to bed tonight, a fresh start is waiting on me in the morning and a brain that can comprehend and weigh the benefits of the two options.
