Well done Russ!
Thank you, Kristi. I appreciate your earlier suggestions!
Hi Russ. I just found out about you through Sherri Matthews’s blog. Are you self-publishing your children’s books? I am interested, because I am working on my first one, learning the ropes about putting it all together, and I am interested to know if self-publishing is cost effective and/or successful?? I look forward to exploring this blog!
Hi! Welcome to this blog and to the amazing adventure of self-publishing. I began writing my first book fourteen months ago. My tenth book was just released for sale. You’ll learn quite a bit about what I’m learning and my misadventures in self-publishing by reading my blogs:
Imaginings of a Grateful Man http://imaginingsofagratefulman.com Flash fiction and short stories
A Grateful Man http://russtowne.com Non-fiction
A Grateful Man’s Poetry http://agratefulmanspoetry.com Poetry
Clyde and Friends http://clydeandfriends.com Children’s Books and Stories
I’d be happy to answer any questions you have about my experiences with self-publishing. You are also welcome to email me at email@example.com with specific questions.
Russ, I am definitely going to contact you for some advice on finding the right illustrator. although I’ve been using my own photos, I really would like to collaborate with someone on the future ZuZu books. I’ll email you and see what you think. So many great books! You’re amazing…Clare
Hi, Clare. I’ll be happy to share with you all I’ve learned about the several illustrators I’ve used or attempted to use. You can call me at 408-364-6987. I’m in California and look forward to your call.
Thanks, Russ. I could really use the advice. I’ll call next week. Is there a good time for you? Clare
I tend to be most available between 1 and 5 PM California time. I look forward to your call, Clare.
I’ll get all my questions together and call next week after we return from New York. Thanks again, Russ. You’re Great! Clare
