On Publshing, POD, and Vanity

So, really. Is it vanity to self-publish a children's book if you are, indeed, a child?

I think not.


She gave me a copy for xmas. The chapters on Rainbow Tom and Goliath are the funniest, but Mrs. G is her favorite cat, so she got the first chapter. She took some of the photos, Maralton took some of the photos, I took some of the photos. You might recognize the cover photo from the blog post of the three boys on my laptop.

So if you know someone the right age, why not check it out? Or check it out anyway. And if you flip the pages, be sure to click on the back cover to see the back cover photo of the four cats.

The layout is courtesy of my oldest sister, Aunt Anne, noted photographer, nonfiction writer and small press publisher (very small).

There are photos of the author's reading here in Nahant on the last night of Hanukkah, which I hope to post later.
