Sorry about the absence of posts! Lots of changes at ESEN Translation Services coming up…

And, we’re working on the third edition of Olivia and The Mush, for ESEN Books. This edition will be easier to convert into multiple e-book formats, so that more readers will be able to read it. Stay tuned!

Olivia and The Mush is live!

Category : Uncategorized

Well, my cats are now loose! Olivia and The Mush are now officially alive on Amazon.com, as a Kindle e-book. I’ll be uploading to IngramSpark, Smashwords and Kobo soon. The Spanish translation is in progress, and I’ve got ideas for other formats too.

A twist: Since I couldn’t find an illustrator, I decided to make it a Draw Your Own Character book. There’s a note inside to parents to encourage them to have their children draw the characters and scenes as they are read. I’ve also suggested that they send me the illustrations; this ought to be interesting!

I’ve got three more ‘episodes’ in the pipeline, so I’ll be adding to the series. Glad to have it online, after four years in the making!

And, by the way, the author’s name is Marie Lopez…!OM Kobo skinnier book cover PNG

Well, Olivia and The Mush has been uploaded to Amazon KDP, so it’s ‘in review’. I tweaked it just a little; it’s become a Draw Your Own Character book, with pop-ups to encourage their kids to draw the action. I’ll let you know when it becomes live!OM Kobo skinnier book cover PNG

One week to go!

Seven days to the launching of my first Olivia and The Mush book! Just an illustrated cover and plain text; no time or budget for an illustrator this time around. The first field test went well; the kids wanted to hear the second book already!Ishkantin Yuribelle
