Happy Halloween!

Daddy Tries celebrates the holidays.  Check out Daddy as a caped crusader and his tiny-but-awesome training partner. As long as there’s a 5k involved, of course!  We got into the spirit of the season to  not only demonstrate the talents of my illustrious illustrator, but also to  showcase the depth of fun and character that will resonate from every single page of the book.

Along those lines, phase two of the illustration process is coming along at a solid pace.  Detail is being added to all of the rough sketches, and we’re incorporating a lot of fun elements that will keep readers enjoying the book many times over.

Another area of progress includes my catching a portion of a self publishing “Top 10” style video conference where I learned a few great tricks about using IngramSpark as a POD option. Their advice about blogs, marketing, content, pricing, distribution, quality, and execution all seemed spot-on to me.  Sure, they want to encourage folks to use their suite of services  rather than CreateSpace, but it was impossible to argue with any of the advice.
