Launching a Children's Book Without Breaking the Bank

As some of you may know, I sort of "fell" in to self-publishing back in 2018. I was inspired to write a children's book after I saw a poster of a sloth in an airport. I was so inspired in fact, that I wrote the first draft of my book "Sam The Speedy Sloth" on the plane journey! And the rest, as they say, is history.

I was delighted when I was asked to appear on the Self Publishing Show, which is part of Mark Dawson's Self Publishing Formula (SPF). Mark Dawson is an award-nominated, USA Today bestseller, who now runs SPF to help teach other self-publishers (like me) to grow their careers as well as give tips and tricks about how to successfully self-publish a book.

In my episode of the show, I talk about how to publish a children's book without 'breaking the bank', i.e. on a tight budget, where I got the illustrations from, putting my book together, self-publishing and marketing and then how I turned the book (and my subsequent books) into #1 bestsellers.
