What you'll do

"Stillness. Cindy is alone. Tears slip from beneath her closed eyelids. She feels a prick in her arm and opens her eyes to see a plastic and steel tower beside her. An IV is in her. A jungle of noise surrounds her."
You let Donna know who the characters are, or animals for the stories you want to come to life in a 10-page creative book with pictures and illustrations that you will see created right before your eyes that you will participate in! Once the story is complete and written and you will get to see how self-publishing platforms such as Amazon and Lulu.com work. You create the magic by coming up with the solved puzzle by the end of the experience of creating a story of your own desire and creation - and I help you to understand and solve the puzzle of how to use self-publishing platforms and to get your story published. We will also solve the puzzle of cover design and in just 1 hour - you can have a mini-novella 10-page book completed (not including illustrations and pictures), or a calendar, a photo book, a hardcover book, and ebooks that you can have published 6 to 8 weeks later online, to sell all around the world. Canadian video scenes included in the experience to welcome. Great reviews on my profile and LinkedIn. Questions, contact me here on Airbnb. Best viewed on your cellular, tablet, or computer, using a Wi-Fi, cellular, cable, or Ethernet Internet connection.
