So I just mashed the button on a new project. And this one is a bit…different for me.
Here’s the back story, but in a nutshell. Have you ever had a dream and thought ‘Wow! That would make a grand story!’ or something along those lines? I do all the time. Except, I usually forget what it was before I can get up and pee. Don’t judge…I’m old.
Well, I had one of those dreams again, except…I remembered it. And I thought, that would make a really neat children’s book. Yes…children’s book. From a guy who brought you every form of horror, torture, murder and mayhem that I could think of, a children’s story crept into my dreams. And it took root. So to speak.
So, I bounced the story off Jeff and he actually liked it. Enough that he started playing with his software and sent me a couple of ideas he had. Before I knew it, we were up and running with it. I sent him the ‘script’ and he worked day and night and whipped this puppy out in a matter of days. His goal was to get it out BEFORE Christmas. I didn’t think it was possible, but…this is Jeffrey Kosh we’re talking about here. The man is a machine.
Anywho…fast forward a few days and…I just mashed the button on The Littlest Christmas Tree.
We wanted it available for print and Amazon – well, they’re just not as graphic friendly. So I tried Lulu and they are stupid simple to use. The only problem is, they require that I okay a physical proof before they’ll release it. We may not hit the Christmas season this year. But the digital version will be populating to Amazon soon and once it does, I’ll make sure the links are posted on Facebook, Gab, Wimkin and Parler.
Things always slow down writing wise around the holidays for me. There’s just too much going on and things to do in prep for the different events and longer nights and colder days and blah blah blah. So yes, writing took a back seat as it always does and I fell behind on N5. But this project was something that I wanted to try mainly because, I have forty some books out but nothing that my grandkids could really enjoy.
That’s now changed.
So, that’s it. My first children’s book is about to come alive. And, who knows? If it does well, Mr. Kosh and I may well have to team up and release more.
If I don’t get the chance to say it again before the holidays hit, I hope you and yours have the Merriest of Christmases and the Happiest of New Years. Please, stay safe and remember to love.
Peace, Love and Bacon!

This is so cool! When will this actually be in print? I would love to buy a few for my grandkids.

I had to order a physical proof copy before they would release it and the proof can take up to three weeks.
