Around the World with Dani P. Mystery #kidlit #childrensbook #adventure #reading
Our daughter recently had the opportunity to study abroad on a scholarship. Because of the time difference, each morning I couldn't wait to jump up out of bed and discover where she had visited while I was asleep. I was living vicariously through her, and dreaming of the places she was able to experience first-hand. The pictures she shared left me in awe and I knew that she was taking in memories that would last her a lifetime. It gave me a wonderful idea.
It has been a little over a year since I published the first Dani P. Mystery book. Unbelievably, I am working on my fourth book! Why unbelievably? Because I am not a full-time writer, and as an indie author, it is very difficult to publish a paperback book and ebook on one's own. It is a very time consuming, yet rewarding experience. I feel blessed that we (with the full support of my family) have accomplished so much in so little time!
With this in mind, I thought it would be fun to learn exactly where Dani P. has traveled to since she first began her adventures! I have been lucky enough to hear from several parents and their children who have submitted beautiful pictures or letters so I have learned a tad bit about where she has landed, i.e. Texas, New York, Washington, Oregon, Arkansas, Massachusetts, California, the United Kingdom, etc. But then I got the idea of doing an actual campaign to track Dani's travels and call it Around the World with Dani P. Mystery. All of the photos collected will be put in a special gallery on our Facebook page and website.
I hope you will join me on her journey and consider submitting a picture of you with your favorite Dani P. Mystery adventure. Most importantly, don't forget to let us know the state/country where you reside. If you care to share a little bit about your city, state, or country---we'd love for you to share that as well! Help us all learn a little more about the world, and how truly connected we are with one another.
I can't wait to meet you and to see all of Dani's exciting travels!
Wishing you a little adventure!
