I am so excited the Gee Bee Books are finally in! The initial order was for 5000 books and they are now on sale in the Fantasy of Flight Gift Shop as well as on www.amazon.com. They should also be up shortly on our own www.geebee.com website.
The book is called ALL OF LIFE IS A SCHOOL and is a 64-page illustrated children’s book based on REAL HISTORY, REALY AIRPLANES and REAL CHARACTERS! It takes place at a mythical airfield called “Fantasy of Flight” where everyone pushes their boundaries and strives to become all they can be. I came up with the idea four years ago and it has been a very interesting, fun, and educational experience. Not only about how to go about doing a book but learning copyright laws, self-publishing, marketing, distribution, grammar, punctuation and what teachers want to see in a book for 3-8 year olds! All that I have learned from this experience will make any future projects a lot easier.
We are also working on a separate kid-friendly website that will have fun and games as well as information about the characters. We will soon be recording some character voices for the site so, I think we might have as much fun creating as the kids will visiting it. Later, I plan to add a cute Gee Bee theme song I wrote so, check watch for the site announcement in future posts.
If you are fortunate to purchase the book at Fantasy of Flight we also have some really cute kids shirts and dresses for sale with the main characters on them: Gee Bee Zee, Jimmy G. Gee Bee and Puff. If you see me around Fantasy of Flight, don’t be shy about asking me to autograph the book for you!
Hope to see you soon.
