My story was written, illustrations finished, formatting complete, and Amazon was waiting for me to press submit. However, I found myself staring at the screen, scared to press the button that would take my little story out into the world.
And then I remembered why I started this project; for my daughter and other small children who enjoy picture books. Could my story encourage a child's imagination to sparkle, promote a love of words and reading, and allow them to immerse themselves in innocent adventure, and gently think about animals and their precious environment? If there was even a remote chance of this, then I simply had to go for it!
One week on and who knows where When Duck Got Stuck will go; I hope into the hands of many children here in Australia, the UK and other small (or large) corners of the world.
