Interview with J.E.Clark, Author of Daddy's Guitar, due to be released this June 2014.
Why did you write the book?
It really just came to me. It's a personal memory of my husband and son playing the guitar together. I wanted to write a children's book for my son to enjoy.
What was your inspiration for the book?
I have always loved books. Since my son was born, I love reading books to him I enjoyed as a kid along with some new ones. My son and husband are my inspiration.
Who are your favorite authors?
I enjoy Shel Silverstein, Ludwig Bemelmans, Beatrix Potter, Nicholas Sparks to name a few
What are your current projects?
I have a few projects I'm working on but one I'm really excited about is a book series called The Adventures of Frick and Frack. It's a cute story about a frog and a fly that are good friends and have a few exciting adventures together.
Who designed the cover?
My good friend Michele Phillips. I didn't realize she was an illustrator for children's books until she submitted a workshop on Facebook. At the time, I had a rough draft of Daddy's guitar done and was looking for someone to illustrate. Talk about great timing!
What do you plan to do with the funds you raise?
The funds will help me to finish publishing my book but most of it will go to marketing my book. Marketing is one of the most important aspects of your book. How else is anyone going to know your book is out there?
