Born out of boredom almost two years ago, I started making pictures from the shapes menu available on MS Word. The first picture was of fish – it seemed the easiest to do. The more I made these pictures, the more I liked it. About 4 or 5 months later I tried my hand at a book.
After I wrote my first book I tried to self-publish it. This is a very expensive process for someone on a limited income. But I kept writing and illustrating them and saving them for one day in the future when I would be able to afford publishing. I have published 3 books on Blurb.com, but at $25+ per book, it remains cost prohibitive for me and I can only afford one or two books at a time every few months. So along came blogs. I thought what a great way to publish my books in a serial manner and share them with who ever would be interested in reading them!
My goal is to publish a couple of pages every day or so. So here is my first one, Simon Finds a Forever Home. Its about Simon, a solid black cat rescued from the wilds of suburbia. I hope you enjoy it and come back again for more!
