INFORMATION
The new profile picture is me with my wife, Mary. It was taken on a trip to Colorado a couple of years ago.

I have recently published two children's books for ages 2 to 8. "Creatures That Rhyme" is a book of short limerick style poems organized in an ABC format. "Tell Me A Story" is a book of poems told from the point of view of a child. Both books are full color and approximately 38 pages in length. They can be ordered from my website which is www.douglaspaulcreationsllc.com

I have also published book of poetry for us grown ups called "The Book of Common Man" It contains many of the poems that I wrote during my first year on FanStory. All of these books are available on Amazon.

Both books are now available directly from Amazon as well in paperback and ebook formats.

If anyone wants a signed copy, just send me PM.

Douglas Paul: Just got my first printed copy of my first book ever, "Creatures That Rhyme". What an exciting day!!! I have to say I am impressed with the quality from LuLu. The paper they used is pretty heavy so there is no bleed through of the color images.

The tracking on another 12 books shows them arriving tomorrow, so I should be able to get the signed copies for those who wanted one in the mail on Saturday.

    brenda bickers: Well done Douglas, I will be ordering mine on Amazon as a signed copy from America to England will be expensive.
    Good luck with the sales.

Douglas Paul: I just want to pass on a true gem that I have recently disovered. I have hired mvbrooks (Maureen) to edit my adult poetry -The Book of Common Man - and she also edited my limerick book. SHE IS PHENOMENAL. I would highly recommend her if you need any editing help.

Thank you so much, Maureen.

Douglas Paul: I have written off and on for many years. I never did much with it until now, but after the encouragement I have received here, I want to proceed with trying to publish a childrens book. I am just beginning to research how that is done. and could surely use any help that those who have published could give me. I have set up an email address to better communicate with fellow writers and potential publishers. Please send me a "heads-up" if you have any suggestions. The email address is ...dppoet7@gmail.com
