Writing, Drawing and Publishing Children’s Books

I spent one month going on a creative rampage. I wrote and illustrated nine children’s books. You can buy one below. This was a lesson in taking action and removing barriers to experimentation.

To create the books I used Google Drawings on a Chromebook exclusively. I manipulated shapes to craft my stories. Any simple drawing program will work. Don’t let the tool get in the way of the creation.

When it came time to publishing I wanted to make my books accessible to all. Instead of traditionally using Amazon and locking the format down, I published the books as PDFs and set up PayPal links to make the purchase path seamless and familiar. I feel that PayPal is a quick, secure way to sell an item, without all the royalties you’d typically pay Amazon for publishing.

Anyone can create something if they put their minds to it. What will you create next?
