20 Years in the Making

MichelleWordpressCopy2

“20 years in the making”. That’s about right in a funny kind of way.

This is a special day . A book which I illustrated and wrote over 20 years ago is now available on Amazon (Kindle). That means that when this book was written my family had no access to the internet at home!  The most advanced technology we had was an ancient floor model TV that literally took 20 minutes to warm up.

The very first scanned copies were saved on floppy disc which if I remember correctly could only hold up to 1 megabyte of data (?).

There’s more to the story at MichelleBook.com  if you’d like to check it out.

From time-to-time I’ll post how things are going and what I’ve learned about ebook creation for children’s picture books (the things they don’t tell you).  In some ways it was easy. I watched lots of youtube videos but I ran into some snags or glitches as I went along.

This is the Amazon  link but you can find the book on other Amazon sites such as .com and .uk

Just a note that since it is a larger file (picture book) it may take a little longer to download but Kindle claims it will do this in the background as you work on your computer.

Coincidence 

If you go too Google today you will see an homage to Lucy Maud Montgomery or just check out Wikipedia.

She was a children’s author from Prince Edward Island ( very close to Nova Scotia where this book is based from). It is her 141st birthday today. This was a totally delightful coincidence as I had planned to write this article today with no knowledge of it being her birthday.

Thanks for stopping by and more to follow!
