My Book! It’s A Kid’s Life
Exactly a year ago today I pressed the publish button on my first ever blog post! I was hooked instantly as I saw the way in which my words travelled around the internet. Eighty four posts later and I am still going strong! So I am hoping that it is a good omen that the blog post that I am writing today, on the first birthday of my blog, is one about my new book……………..
Nine months ago I started writing a book for children. Inspired by my boys never ending antics and fantastic sense of humour, I quickly found a book forming before my eyes. Before I knew it, Ben Collins had become my late night cheeky chappy whilst my real life cheeky chaps were tucked up fast asleep in their beds. I would regularly read snippets to my boys and ask their advice as they acted as my mini editors. After being a mum of four boys for eight years I found that I was able to throw myself into the psyche of a nine year old boy and thus It’s A Kid’s Life was born.
It is great when your child finds a book that gets them hooked. Last night I went out at 8pm and left my eight year old reading on his kindle. I came home at 10.15pm to find him still up reading! I was about to tell him off for staying up too late when I realised that he was reading my book! Words cannot express how it felt seeing his happy little face taking in every word! If not another soul ever buys my book, this moment made it totally worthwhile! But if you too would love to see your child get lost in a book that captures their heart, imagination and laughter then my son would highly recommend this to you! He is obviously a tiny bit biased (!!!) but I hope that other children are inspired by this in the same way that he has been. He is already asking me to write the sequel!
It’s A Kid’s Life is currently available to purchase on Amazon Kindle and will be followed shortly by a paperback version. If your child enjoys the book then please do leave a review on Amazon to let others know what you think of it. Thank you! x
