I'm excited to announce that I have just released a new children's picture book called, The Good Mood Book!
Here is the book description:
Join the fun-loving Good Mood Gorki as it takes a sad girl on a magical adventure packed full of "good mood" wonders designed to bring her cheer and make her frowns disappear!
It had big friendly eyes
And walked with a wiggle.
And at night its job was
To turn frowns into giggles!
"I'm the Good Mood Gorki,"
Said the creature with pleasure.
"I'm here to cheer you up
With a magical adventure!"
With bright and colorful illustrations featuring a galaxy of sweets, a park full of puppies, a volcano that erupts fireworks, and much much more -- The Good Mood Book is a quick and uplifting bedtime story to help end your child's tough day with a smile!
I was asked often last year at the shows my wife and I did for Off the Hook if I had anything for younger kids. I had written the first draft of a more traditional picture book called, The Good Mood Book, about two years ago but I wasn't sure if I would self-publish it. Well, after discussing with my family (and getting a big push from my eight year old daughter who loves it) back in January we decided to move forward!
So I teamed up with Eminence System, the same folks who did the incredible illustrations for Off the Hook, ran it through a couple of editors, and then worked with an amazing typesetter/designer named Elena Reznikova over at DTPerfect.com -- and ten months later I couldn't be more pleased with the results.
The book is perfect for ages two to five, is twenty-four pages long, and features twenty-one illustrations -- without spoiling too much here are a couple of them:
The book is currently available in Kindle, paperback, and hardback through Amazon. Please check it out and if you like it I can use all the positive Amazon reviews I can get to help spread the word!
Thanks for all your support!
UPDATE: The Good Mood Book won an Honorable Mention at the 2019 Story Monsters Purple Dragonfly Book Awards. You can read more here.
