The SHORT Story Behind the Book

This is my first book and it came to life in October 2017, when I posted a creepy rhyme and an accompanying illustration each day of the month.

It was a challenge creating a new pen and ink illustration each day, and totally exhausting.

After sleeping through the following November, I decided to compile the thirty-one installments into a book. A few months of research followed and a bit of desktop publishing.

I learned quite a bit.

By Spring I had completed my first book. It was a completely independent, self-published effort.

Hopefully it won’t be my last book.
