I was invited to an Author Showcase at my day job and one of my coworkers videoed my book chat! I didn't realize we were going to talk about our books and I was so nervous. ha ha
I'm so excited to let you know that my T-30 Thermal binding machine has arrived. Check out the YouTube video below and check it out. :-)

I can't believe I did this but I launched an Indiegogo campaign!
While my Kindle ebooks have sold really well, I have found printed copies of my books are very expensive especially with the graphics and colors and I felt there must be another way to offer reasonably priced books for people to buy without breaking the bank. After a lot of research, I found you can buy "automatic perfect binding" machines that can bind and produce up to 200 books an hour. Not only could I publish my own books but I could help other new authors who need an affordable publishing option so they can get their books out in the world too.
Please check out my video below and visit my Indiegogo campaign for more information.
And guess what? My birthday is Friday and to celebrate, all my books will be available on Kindle for FREE! The offer is open from Friday, September 14th, through Sunday, September 16th.
Use the Kindle link above and get your FREE book downloads beginning this Friday.
I forgot to mention I did receive my test print of the more affordable "trade book" format from Blurb. It looks great! The pages are not as glossy as the "photo book" format but the colors are still very vivid and I actually think the size of the book is better for smaller kid hands.
The only issue is when I first created the illustrations, I made them for a different size and now the illustrations do not fit on the page as well as I would like. I'll have to reformat them a bit and then create the books. Hopefully, I can finish that before the year is done.
I bought a Speedball screen printing kit and goofed around trying to screen print Burt the Bunny on tote bags and t shirts. As you can see, I did quite a few test runs on drawing paper and finally was able to do a couple of t shirts and some tote bags. They didn't turn out too bad considering this was my first time trying to screen print. YouTube videos are the best help ever. ha ha
I had to order more ink which should be here tomorrow since I need the practice!
I'm creating a fine-tuned image of Burt the Bunny so I can screen print a few t shirts! I've always wanted to try screen printing and thought wouldn't Burt be darling on a t shirt or a tote bag?
