Riza Oledan-Ramos is a children's book author living on Saipan. A while back, she attended one of my "saipanpreneur" workshops and expressed to me her desire to publish her first book. She became my client, and a few months later, after a few coaching sessions, she launched her website and published her first book, The Boy Who Dreamed to Be With His Parents on Saipan, a unique based-on-real-life children's story that even adults have found compelling and emotional.
The book is available in paperback from her site, as well as on Amazon.com and BarnesAndNoble.com in Kindle and Nook formats, as well as in Bestseller Bookstore on Saipan.
Last week, Riza, now a published author with her book on Amazon, and in two languages, made her book signing debut at the public library on Saipan! And, while I'm sorry I couldn't be there to share the moment with her, here are a few photos of the event she sent me! Enjoy, then pick up a copy to support a new author! http://www.rizaramosbooks.com
If you're going to do an outdoor book signing, there's no nicer place than a tropical island!
"Sign my copy, please!"
Greeting the public!
Sharing the book's original art by Rodante Guardia! Great idea, Riza!
We also translated it into Spanish!
The kid's arrive!
