Good day, thanks for stopping by. As you can tell by the title of today's post, it's the second day in the Alligator & the Ducklings tour. Today was also supposed to be a two stop day, but thus far only one stop has posted. Today's stop is a review.
I'd like to thank SolaFide Publishing for taking the time to read and review this book. Please take a minute to check out the review. While you're there why not subscribe to the blog? Based on what I saw, they have something for everyone!
The second post was a guest post telling the story of how this book almost wasn't released. It's true. When I was originally handed the manuscript for The Alligator & the Duckling I was only asked to edit it. At the time, the family of Michael J. Collins was only planning to print up the edited text for the family.
Even knowing that, I went at the task of editing thinking it would be released to the public one day. The message was too important to keep under wraps, in my opinion. Even when I wasn't actively working on it, this manuscript stayed in my head. When I closed my eyes I could see the imagery before me and that was even before the manuscript had any illustrations. Once I finished editing, adding illustrations and formatting the family decided to publish. As they say, the rest is history.
