Not long now before I launch ‘The Laughing Tree’ and already pre-launch sales are going well. I’m thrilled to hear the positive feedback from those who have read it or bought it for their little ones. The response to the essence of the story and its origins has been intriguing. It just goes to show how important it is to create a personal and emotional connection to the main character or subject. Using a real life experience has given the story more credibility and heartfelt emotion.
