Many of the authors I know have always dreamed of writing a book. Some have always envisioned writing an attention-capturing novel. Others want to write a bestselling memoir. Many others dream about writing a children’s book. If you fall into the latter category, you’re going to get a lot out of this episode. (If you don’t, you’ll still learn a lot about book writing and self publishing!)
In this episode, I’m excited to be interviewing Angela Ferrari, a self-published children’s book author. We talk about how to start writing a book, why Angela chose to self publish her books, how she gets the ideas for her books, what it’s like to work with her as an illustrator, and much more. I think you’re going to learn a lot from her insight.
Angela Ferrari is a painter, children’s book author/illustrator and podcaster based in Portland Maine. Her picture book titles include: “Digger’s Daily Routine,” “An Extraordinary Book” and “What Do You See?”. Most recently Angela has launched “Story Spectacular,” a children’s story podcast. The show features original stories and classic retellings.
