Last year I managed to self-publish my first children's book, "Dimples the Snowman", based on my snowman character I created. I painted/illustrated each page and, as hard as it was, managed to get the book in print a week before Christmas 2013. I have just recently published my second Dimples book and had my very first book signing at a local, country gallery and gift shop, and this weekend have a book-signing at our local library.
Wish me luck, I am really starting to finally feel like my hard work is paying off. Have a great day!
