This is my first hardcover Children's Book!!! For those of us who are used to the Educational, Coloring Book, Magazine, Self Publish Markets, I'm sure you understand my excitement!!

The book is called A Perfect pet for Peyton and is published by Moody Publishers.


It also has a free app that works alone or has extras that work with the book! 


I have more info about it over on my blog!!!

Thanks so much everyone!! Let's hope it leads to bigger an better projects!!

Actually, that's a good question. How do you take a published book and use it to promote yourself further and get higher level work?? Any ideas??

Feature it on your website, Wilson! And maybe update your postcard with the book, if you do mailers. Perhaps you'll get more projects from this publisher! Congrats and good luck!

Thanks everyone!!!

@MyIDea-let me know what ya think! I didn't create the app, it just uses my artwork. But they just updated it with two more games. One works for me the other doesn't. (The one where the bird repeats back what you say.) Let me know how it works for ya!!

Thanks again!!! :)
