How To Self-Publish Funny Kids Books

It has been a heck of a journey to the publication of my debut novel!

For 30 years I wanted to write a book.

A personal plot twist presented me with the most unusual opportunity to achieve my dream of writing a book.

After saving 6,000 lives on the NHS front lines, I was injured helping someone, which ended my career on the 999 emergency ambulances. In recovery from my injuries, I was unable to play with my kids. I engaged my passion to write for them in a wild and whacky adventure where we ran and played together.

As a new voice in children’s fiction, may I share that funny action-adventure book written for my children, with yours?

The Story of My Writing Journey

I have swooned to and from writing children’s fiction for thirty years, but life always got in the way, mainly in a good way!

Beautiful Disaster

Just before my 50th birthday I suffered a serious knee injury whilst helping to save a life. A fair trade I thought – my health for theirs.

The silver lining was that whilst immobile I was struck by the irresistible urge to write for my children, and I began to write children’s books in verse.

My Kids Book Was Like Magic Beans

I have always loved the Julia Donaldson kids books and bizarrely I settled on a fantasy dragon-like beast whilst watching The Last Leg comedy programme on Channel 4 about the Koala Gala, and my funny kids books ideas began to blossom geometrically.

I wrote a series of funny kids books in verse.

The Funny Children’s Book Beanstalk

Then I was struck by the brilliant thought that I could combine two of the rhyming kids books into a plot. I began to pen a whacky action-adventure in the funny children’s book category dominated by the amazing David Walliams and David Baddiel.

I sat in front of my notepad and laptop furiously dreaming the hours away as I lived the exhilarating adventure of the two sisters, their grandad and cousins against the menacing dragon-like Fangazoo beast. My heart was racing as I laid down chapter after chapter of this funny 30,000-word middle-grade fiction book.

“The first draft is just you telling yourself the story.” Terry Pratchett

The edit took much longer than the first draft, but like the late great Terry Pratchett said “The first draft is just you telling yourself the story.”

The Funny Children’s Fiction Golden Egg

I have a funny and exciting kids fiction book for children aged 7-12 years, with the added benefit of helping me through the rehabilitation of my knee.

Pastures New

It has not been a full recovery in terms of my knee injury. Sadly, North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust terminated my employment, due to my knee injury, at the height of COVID-19 lockdown citing my incapacity to perform the 999 ambulance role. Since then, times have been hard for me, my wife and young children.

Kids’ Author Hopes & Dreams

My greatest hope, my dream, my prayer for the continuation of my silver lining is that I can start a new career, at age 50 – a late bloomer in the field of funny children’s fiction books.
