By Sonya Annita Song (Author), Kate Fallahee (Illustrator)

I have created my own publishing company, Chinchilla Books, towards the goal of carving a niche for my writing and books in the vast market of children’s literature.  I am finally trying to realize what I once thought of as an inconceivable dream, and I hope to inspire others to do the same.

My debut children’s book, “I Want an Ostrich,” is a rhyming picture book, and it is now available for purchase or pre-order at AmazonBarnes & NobleIndigo, and other online retailers.

Official Description:
“A charming book about a boy wanting an ostrich narrated in fun rhyming verses with eye-catching illustrations.  The author collaborated closely with the illustrator to elevate simple rhymes into engaging scenes designed to captivate and encourage curiosity and exploration.”

    1. Of course. Your blog reaches almost ten times as many people, but I hope I can help a little. I know what it’s like to create something and be proud of it and try to get people to even read it. Selling something is a whole different level.

      1. Selling is definitely a different ballgame altogether. I firmly believe that if you can show people the value of your work, they will be willing to buy. If you fail to do so, however, then there is either a problem with your approach or your product. Personally, I think if people are willing to spend money on pet rocks, it is all about the approach. 🙂


      2. There is much to be said about quality marketing. As for how I get people to buy my book, I was thinking of setting up a stall at the local farmer’s market once I have a few more books and selling there. Sometimes you have to start small to get big. 🙂

      3. You are so funny. I’m sure every book you sign will immediately drop in value. I can imagine uou signing books, then giving a signed book discount. Of course, I have no idea what you look like, so I see DinoCat.

      4. You wrote a book, hired an artists to illustrate it, and started a company to release it, and now, you’re scared to sign it? I am officially intrigued. I want to see you signature.

      5. I refuse to believe it’s that offensive. I’ve never seen a signature that was nearly as repulsive as you seem to think yours is. I’ve seen some unimpressive scribbles, I’ve even made some, but they weren’t that bad. I’ve also never had such a prolonged discussion about them.

      1. You may have noticed I’m not a one to LOL, but I literally did. That was a good one.

        It’s because you are an excellent writer who has the ability to arrange words in a way that touches people emotionally.

      2. Sometimes I read something old I think , “I wrote that? That’s really good.” Sometime I think, “I wrote that? I should never write again.” The 100% rejection rate assures that I don’t get too confident.

      3. LOL well, just keep reminding yourself of all the famous writers who were rejected umpteen times before finally being accept. Dr. Seuss’s first book was rejected too. “He pitched the book and was rejected 27 times before a chance encounter with a friend who had just landed an editing job.”

      4. I know. Jack London was rejected 100 times. Stephen King had a nail in his wall where he posted all his rejection letters. Now, he could get a shopping list published. Rejections still suck. It’s hard not to take them personally. I’m getting ready for my next round of attempts. I found one who looks like a good fit for Norman. I have to come up with a good letter. Thanks for the pep talk. I’m nowhere near giving up.

      5. I think the saying goes, “Those who succeed are the ones who have failed the most.” And there are just those lucky bastards who trip into a pot of gold.
