I’ve been practicing creating picture books. I’m an artist, but I haven’t done illustrations before. My first effort went live just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. It’s called “A Pot of Gold” and it’s for the earliest readers.
Most early readers are created in-house, so publishers and agents aren’t interested in them. Kids love them, though, and there aren’t many St. Patrick’s Day books, so I decided to do the illustrations and post it to Kindle.
I learned so much in the process. I am now a master of the pen tool in Photoshop. I’ve also learned how to use Perspective Warp and Object Select.
I found out what the formats mean on Kindle and discovered free Google Fonts.
Today’s prompt on the PAD blog is about technological innovation. This is kind of spooky, because while eating breakfast, my husband and I watched a documentary about Howard Hughes, who, like Henry Ford, changed the entire world with his inventions. Before something can be created, someone must realize that it is needed. November is a great month for ideas. What can you come up with? Read today’s works on the the blog (link below) and then add your own. Nothing is too outrageous. I wrote three! Couldn’t help myself. One of them is here below the link.
