Your book Tanili sounds great. Are you having luck getting distribution?

Do you have any advice to someone who is thinking of self publishing also?

Hi Maria! As a publisher, I wanted to be sure you are aware of The Mom’s Choice Awards. Awards are a great way to get positive exposure for your titles. You might consider entering. The deadline is quickly approaching – 12/31. Happy holidays!

Maria, thank you for your message. I had a great time in Tucson; loved the weather, the landscape, the mountain next to our hotel, the speakers, the people, and even the cinnamon chocolate nachos!
I hope your future nietos enjoy my book.
