A Writer’s Journey: From Inspiration to Book and App - momswithapps.com

A Writer’s Journey: From Inspiration to Book and App - momswithapps.com | Financial Education for Kids | Scoop.it

Our guest post this week is written by a Mom-With-App and author who published her story through PicPocketBooks. I especially like these articles because they demonstrate the variety of modern options for publishing creative works.

 

From a young age, I dreamt of creating my own picture book.

 

Inspiration first struck with my son Dominic. I wrote and illustrated my first book Under Bright Rays and Sparkling Stars over the course of about a year.

Disappointed, I let my book go back to being just a dream.

 

Inspiration struck again some ten years later when my sweet Cassia reached the fun little age we refer to as “the terrible twos.” Sweet became sweet and sassy, and one day when she was acting, well, two, I found myself saying, “Don’t be sassy, Cassie.” And it hit me.
