Today we met with our Nepali friends and had a birthday party. Such a great way to start our last week in the place we have called home. As we are about to embark on our adventure to New Zealand, I am also celebrating the 2 year anniversary of publishing my first kindle kids book, White Went Around the World! So I get two fun and wonderful celebrations!
Packing up our lifetime of memories in Nepal is a big task. I remember sitting in our guest room late into the night learning about Kindle Direct Publishing and CreateSpace. Those hours of searching the web and uploading my ebook again and again (with slow internet mind you) were worth it!
I have grown into this role as author. And I look forward to the future that lies ahead in NZ–new possibilities, new colors, faster internet : ). I am also very encouraged because in March 2015, I have officially made the same amount of sales as ALL of 2014! Considering it’s only March, I feel I have a good thing going this year.
I have learned as a self-published author, momentum takes time. It also takes effort (and fast internet), so maybe with little more time on my hands once we land in NZ, My Color Friends books can really take off!
Just in case you are wondering: our children’s paperback books best sellers are:
Celebrating Elephants and memories of our home in Nepal!
Our memorable Safari in Namibia!
Real books, real places, real photos and a really fun adventure make for great learning in the hands of children!
It’s been a blast traveling and taking photos around the world and I am blessed that those photos have made great kids books. The colors of the world to be celebrated in our house forever, and I hope they are celebrated in your house too!
Thanks for reading friends!

Barnes&Noble, Remembering Saturdays in High School
Once I got my license in high school, I spent most Saturdays meeting different friends at Barnes&Noble. The day was spent reading endless magazines (for free), pretending to be grown up while drinking a mocha and chatting about the celebrity gossip we just read about. Those were the days! I miss those days.
Some mommy time with a mocha would be well spent I think. And I would probably escape in the same shallow magazines. But not all afternoon, maybe just an hour? Yes, those days were fun and free. And Barnes&Noble is in my heart forever!
And now I am in Barnes&Noble’s library! That makes me happy! I didn’t even discover it til today. (I have said before I may need a better publicist!) Drum Roll….
