New Children's Book Draws A Crowd of Hundreds at Edmonds, Washington Launch
'How Dachshunds Came To Be: A Tall Tale About a Short Long Dog', by Kizzie Jones was released October 2012, drawing hundreds to its highly anticipated book launch. The vividly illustrated book is available on Amazon.
Written by Kizzie Elizabeth Jones, and illustrated by Scott Ward, the new book is intended to foster “The values of honoring community and diversity, and working in collaboration”
“The 30-page book-delight reached Top Twenty ranking in Amazon’s eBook market by Day Two of its release. Calibrated hourly Amazon bases its book rankings on sales, a book’s favorable reviews, and traffic being driven by well-wishers to an author’s book pages on Amazon, demonstrated by ‘Likes’ campaigns,” says publishing consultant, Emily Hill. Hill adds, we were proud to have the opportunity to add “How Dachshunds Came To Be” to the line up of books available from our boutique publishing house.”
The full-color fable was designed by Kathi Humphries Design & New Media, of Seattle, using InDesign technology, one of the newest innovations in publishing. Introduced quietly to the publishing world thirteen months ago, InDesign is a software program used for page layout and page elements.
Emily Hill describes the process used, “For ‘How Dachshunds Came To Be: A Tall Tale About A Short Long Dog’ the designer, Humphries, layered the story-line written by author, Jones, onto the breathtaking illustrations of Scott Ward, adding creative and colorful font designs to advance the storyline.”
“The result was a seamless panorama of sparkling color, dancing fonts, with a read-again story line,” continues the publisher.
“How Dachshunds Came To Be” is available in both soft cover and eBook formats. ‘Because InDesign (for eBook publishing) has not been out of beta-testing for very long there were challenges in producing the Kindle edition of the title,” admits Emily Hill. “By contrast, the soft cover publishing process was flawless!”
“And, it’s the perfect size for a child’s hands. We designed the book at
8.5” x 8.5” and were delighted when we previewed the galley proofs,” said Emily Hill. The publisher touted the book’s dimension by adding that size was considered because it is so ‘packable’
“How Dachshunds Came To Be: A Tall Tale About A Short Long Dog” is intended for dachshund lovers, dog owners, children building friendships, families considering adding a pet to their family, as well as public and school librarians, counselors and those in the ministry. The book is available through Amazon’s extended distribution channels under ISBN 978-1479280759.
It is made available, by Amazon, to the United States book market, as well as the UK, Germany, Spain, France, and India (through Junglee.com)
