Yesterday afternoon, I finally hit the launch button on a project that has been in the works for a very, very long time: the Kickstarter campaign for my kid’s book Sometimes You Need a Jellyfish. Then I immediately ran out the door to pick up my son from kindergarten and tell him the news. The book was his idea, after all.
I’m so very, very proud of this book. In all honesty, I have been for ages, but the more people who I showed it to, the more people I heard asking me when I was going to get it published so that they could have a copy.
In the past, my books have been self-published through print-on-demand services, such as Lulu and Amazon’s CreateSpace. Those services work great, for what they are, but there were two consistent issues that I had with each book: 1) because my books are in full-color, the price point on the books — printed to order — was simply too high, and 2) hardcover book printing is not available.
I am going to do it myself.
