As many of my readers know, I have recently self published my very first children’s book Celia’s Coeliac Story. I have previously written about my step by step guide process of how I created my book for those who are thinking of self publishing. I was recently asked to read my book at Wimbledon’s Bliss in the Park in South Park Gardens, which I was delighted to do. Storytime in the park is a really fun way of introducing children to new stories from storytellers, each with a 20 minute slot time.
This step by step guide is how I created my picture book Celia’s Coeliac Story which is now being sold on Amazon Worldwide. I drew my illustrations on a watercolour pad, and used Aquatico watercolour pencils and a brush to colour. I then took pictures of each individual illustration, and edited using Photoshop, In design and Microsoft word.
