The Return of the Great Flyer

About The Book

The Flying Furniture started out as sketches and grew into a small children's book that my husband self-published a few years ago. Living in the UK for a year and , well, life, prevented us from spending a ton of money on our little book. BUT...the idea was so wonderful and England was such a fantastic muse, that we decided to go BIGGER! I am publishing a novel- whew... I said it out loud. There is quite a bit that goes into publishing and let's face it, ink and paper are expensive but there is nothing like holding a fresh, new book in your hand. You are excited to crack open that crisp, bright, fantastic cover and see what adventures await you on each page. For all the readers and lovers of books out there, take a peek at what’s below to learn a little more about The Adventures of the Flying Furniture and my quest to make my dream, a reality...
