MARKETING and PROMOTION!!! I never expected to have such a heavy load of doing marketing and promotion after being accepted by a publisher. After all, isn't this what an in-house marketing/sales team is for?
With my husband and daughter's help, we created book covers, bookmarks, videos, posters, flyers, website, and list goes on. It got to the point I decided to go self and leave my publisher. If I'm doing this much work, I might as well get paid better than a few cents on the dollar royalties.

Love your website! Looks like a great read!
If Steve says it is good, I know it must be. He is a very good man. Dr m
Thanks to both. :) It's all homemade. My husband put it together and my daughter did all the artwork for the characters and videos.
We have a family affair too. My wife is a first reader, my daughter is first editor and her husband (my son in law) is my second editor. They are expensive. These two kids are both English majors and both graduated top of their class, but hey what can I say, they are young yet. Dr M
LOL, Paradise. My daughter is a film major, thus a starving artist and works for food. :)
I went to school in Missouri with a family of Lambs. I seem to recall a girl in grade school in Illinois with that last name too.
I have four children, all authors. It runs in the family.
