  1. If that music was a conscious decision, it was a poor one. Made me stop and go to the next video….. after wasting my time commenting!

  2. What would happen if animals in a zoo had a party?

    My name is Perry Anderson and this is my self-published children’s picture book, “Mr. Green & Mr. Blue’s Party At The Zoo.” I’m a retired teacher and current pastor in the United Methodist Church. I’ve always had a passion for helping young children learn and for sharing the joy of reading. The love for reading is such an important aspect to instill in a child’s life.

    The second book is in the works and focuses on farm animals. I hope to continue with wildlife animals, sea animals then complete the series with animals native to my home state of Louisiana.

    My first book is available on

  3. Very helpful and great to finally find an Australian self publishing video. How did you go about your Illustrations? I'm finding that the hardest part of making my children's book come to life.

  4. Thank you for providing an overview of the steps. Do you know anything about Ingram Spark? Some people claim this is better than CreateSpace. What is your opinion?

  5. CreateSpace will not publish any books in hard cover.  I also don't think they publish children's picture books anymore.  I would ask first. Lulu does both.

  6. Does CreateSpace put in the publisher information for you or did you make that page yourself? (The second page)

  7. Thank you for posting the formatting information.  How large were your original illustrations?  Did you lose any quality during the publishing process?

  8. Hi there, great clip – really useful info and your book looks great!.  I was just wondering how you go about tax requirements? I think I caught that you're from Australia? I'm from NZ, so is it just a matter of posting one of those international forms Createspace has available? Thanks.
