“Fossil Beach” now available.
As promised, my children’s book is now available on Amazon. Only on Amazon so far, as it is published through their CreateSpace on demand printing service. They take a sizable chunk (of course), so I’ve had to price it at $11.99, but I think they did a good job and am pleased with the product. It’s 48 pages long with 30 full-color drawings. I think the reading level is about 3rd grade, but the story should appeal to younger children – as well as anyone who is intrigued by fossils and/or the beach.
Coloring the pictures really brought back memories of my childhood euphoria at Holden Beach. I could almost smell the salt air and hear the surf. What bliss those days were – and so many dear people I shared them with now gone – Uncle Dabney, Gram, Aunt Ann, Mom, Aunt Margie, Cousin Mary. Along with Dad, Uncle Rudi, Aunt Mary, and Cousin Gordon, they sure made vacation at the seashore into heaven for me, my brothers, and cousins.
