Hello everyone,

I just wrote, illustrated and published a kids book (more details of it here http://jobu57.wix.com/mattforsyth#!books/cyzv )

I thought I'd share some of the art work I did.

Awesome! How long did the project take? Must have been rewarding completing it!

Well done!

Cheers fellas! It actually didn't take me too long, I had a month inbetween projects so decided to get stuck in. I treated this one as a learning curve as how to put it all together. I'm working on another one now and am taking my time with it, ill just knock away at it on the side.

I used createspace to put the book together, which I found really easy to use. You basically just make a word doc with the dimensions of the book size you want and if you want images in it you insert them into the word doc then convert the whole thing into a pdf, and you upload this in the createspace editor and bam, it turns it into a book an puts it on amazon for you - and you can also upload the word doc to kindle from there as well.

I had a play with blurb as well (I actually read your post Oatest... about what book software to use awhile back) and found it quite good to use but it makes really flash books - so its great if you want to make a nice glossy art book, the price of each book comes out quite high and you get a store page etc and can turn it into an ebook too (Its got a catch that to publish the book on your store you have to buy the book first yourself - to unlock it in your store - which isnt a big deal as you prob want the book anyway.)

But I went with create space for a cheaper alternative that gets me directly into amazon and kindle (Like my little book costs 6 bucks to print for amazon orders but would cost about $25 for blurb)
