Self Published Children's Book - I'm Bringing Home a Baby Bumble Bee ...and a few friends!
Almost a year ago i asked a question about self publishing. And now I have.

So I made a thing (and it only took me slightly over a year) and self-published it. Kind of a new twist on an old classic kid's song "I'm Bringing Home a Baby Bumble Bee". As you might remember from the original song, the situation escalates rather quickly after the "Ouch! It stung me!" part. I found myself not wanting to sing anything past the first verse to my daughter, even though she loved the song. Until one day I made up a brand new rhyme with a baby ladybug, which she loved. That's how the idea for this book came about. You and your child will learn about the various bugs (and even one mollusk) the baby is bringing home to Mommy!

This rhythmic book targeted at children aged 6 months to 3 years. A new twist on a classic rhyme that will appeal to children as different, yet familiar.

You can get it here:

* as a Kindle eBook
* or as a real book on CreateSpace - better royalties for me =c)
* or on Amazon - more convenient for you =c)

Honest reviews would be much appreciated! Just a note though, Amazon frowns on reviews if you didn't buy the book.

You can go read the whole book here.

It'd be supremely helpful to share/like/re-tweet and all that other fun social stuff:

* Facebook Page
* Twitter
* Main Site

Happy to answer any and all answers about how I did it, in case someone else is contemplating it.

Shout out to Hogshead who was supremely helpful with followup questions.
