Seeing the first copy of our new book show up in the mail was so exciting. Watching Anya open that book and read it for first time however was truly amazing. Amanda came to me with this dream over a year ago. At the time neither one of us had any idea how to publish a book. Now that the day is finally here it almost seems surreal. We loved watching Anya’s eyes light up as she unwrapped her new book. She was so excited to read it for the first time. I think we must have read her that book 10 times that night because she just kept asking. She even insisted on taking the book to bed with her!
On one of the nights since then we conducted a small experiment. Amanda asked Anya to go to her room and pick a book to read. For anyone who hasn’t seen our daughter’s room she has a large bookshelf stuffed full of books. She could have picked any number of books on that shelf but she went straight to “My Boston and Me” and came running back to our room. She repeated “Mommy read book” and “Daddy read book” while she eagerly held it up in the air. That’s a sight that I can’t properly capture in words. I’m so proud of my talented wife for writing this book. She continues to surprise me every day.
The book has only been launched for a few short days but it is already seeing some success. We have reached the “Hot New Releases” on both Amazon .com and .ca in several Children’s Books Categories. We have sold numerous copies of both the hardcover and eBook variants of the book. And our social media accounts have been generating a lot of buzz and positive feedback. We are very excited for what the future holds.
