What an amazing publication day for my latest children’s picture book James and the Birthday Balloon.
After a flurry of activity, I’m delighted to say that within 24-hours the book was number five on Amazon.com‘s bestseller list in its category.
That’s no mean feat when you consider how much competition there is in children’s fiction and literature not only here in the UK but also worldwide.
A huge thank you to everyone who has downloaded the book and to everyone who has helped me produce it, including my wonderful US-based illustrator Samantha.
I should mention that there are a couple of days left to be able to get it for FREE, but then after that point, it will go back to its £2.99 price point.
Of course, I should mention that one of the biggest reasons to get the paperback edition is that you get a FREE audio version of the story narrated by the super lovely TV’s Dr Ranj (CBeebies Get Well Soon and ITV’s This Morning).
And for every hard copy sold I’m donating £1 to Evelina London Children’s Hospital to support the great work they do in providing care and life-saving treatment for children in south London and beyond.
Happy reading… x
