Buy the Book!

They say that books are like babies. This particular baby had a gestation period of several years. I wrote the book in 2008, and then proceeded to get married, buy a house, have a (real) baby, and only then did I take the time afforded me by my paternity leave and a couple hours a day of blessed naptime to finish illustrating it. That should have been about that time it got released into the wild, but my wife and I decided that we wanted it to be really special, and not just a plain ebook, so we did some research and added narration and sound effects to it, along with highlighted text, so a child could read along with the audio.

I went out on several walks with a digital recorder and took soundscapes to add, and did all the voices myself. It took a little longer (okay, a lot longer) than we’d expected, but we learned a lot, and the next one will not take nearly so long to produce. I’m super proud of it, and I’m so glad to hear that people are enjoying reading it with their kids. I hope you get a kick out of it too. It’s a Zen fairy tale, about a cloud who feels like he just isn’t enough. Not big enough, not useful enough, and so he goes on a search for a purpose.

If you’d like to purchase it directly from me, you can do so by clicking on the cover above, or by clicking here, and a gumroad module will open here on artisticninjutsu.com. Or if you’d rather purchase through iBooks, you can do so by clicking on the badge below. This will either open iTunes if you have that installed on your device, or it will take you to the iTunes page for the book, and you can log in from there.

There’s much more excitement on the horizon, including translations, and more books. (I’ve been busy writing more, and you’ll hear about that soon). Please do drop me a line if you purchase the book, and let me know how you like it. And don’t forget to rate and review on iBooks if you buy from them. Every review helps.
