My first book launched

My first book launched

Postby Pixero » Wed Aug 30, 2023 11:01 am

As some of you know I have been writing and illustrating children’s books lately.
Finally my first book has been launched.
Available only in Swedish at the moment. But title in English is: Mira Broom & Tom Hat - The Book of Spells
It’s a chapter book for ages 6-9 and the first book of three in a series.
I have also made a website for the book http://www.mirakvast.se

I have both written and illustrated it.
I actually used SketchUp to model a stair for perspective reference for a few illustrations.

Good luck with it, the cover looks magical and alluring. It says something magical is inside :thumb: :thumb:

Just wanted to say that I have self published 3 picture books on Amazon.

Untitled 2.jpg


They are in English and available here if anyone is interested:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/stores/author/B0CPQ52HXW/allbooks?ingress=0&visitId=426cacec-1963-4ebd-a3c9-2d201f055d4c&store_ref=ap_rdr&ref_=ap_rdr

Only softcovers.

No news of a English version of Mira but I know a Danish version is on the way.

With the utmost respect I wish you every success!
Just browsing through your website promises to be a lot of fun - for example I'd love to know what's connected to the shadowy guy called William Pokus :D :) !?
Great that this beautiful project has become real :thumb: :thumb:

Without giving too much away I can say that Pokus stood for the wild untaimed magic and it is said that Hokus turned him into a shadow… or did he?

I’ve research this a bit and it seems it can go out of stock when the printer has too much to do. Like before Christmas. I’ll keep an eye if it becomes available again. It’s still available at Amazon.com though.

Amazon KDP is print on demand so it’s printed when someone orders.
When I look at the site they are all available. I was in contact with Amazon kdp and they told me it could have to do with Amazon not shipping to a certain country. When I use a British delivery address they are available.
I don’t have any books to sell myself sadly but let me know in a PM if you if you want to order any of the books and I see what I can do.
