THE INVISIBLE BOOK ADVANTAGE

You can order a physical saddle-stitched copy of the book from Lulu.com if you'd like. I've been churning around ideas for another children's book as well as a new horror novel and choose your own adventure extreme horror novel. But, basically, I have taken a bit of a hiatus from writing. I designed and built a small camper for our family. And that sapped a lot of my time and creativity. Questions like yours make me want to get back to writing though. Thank you for expressing your interest. It means a lot to me.(less)

I first discovered the work of Nicholas Tillemans with his collection of short stories, Acetone Enema. Mr Tillemans writes unique and quirky stories, seemingly with ease and his mind truly seems to be a dark and twisted place with characters being born and culled on a daily basis. The darkness inside Mr Tillemans drifts onto the pages of his books and fills our minds with the gift of gore-filled dreams.

So it's refreshing to see something completely out of the ordinary (or, in the ordinary, I su

A cute, creative way to encourage parents to tell stories to their children. Told in an upbeat, friendly tone and ending with solid advice that includes a glass of wine. There is no way I could complain.

It would make a wonderful gift book or table book because it's fun. While it's enjoyable to read it doesn't strike me as so much as meant to be informative as meant to be kitchy and cute. That is best accomplished as something you SEE.


Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an hone

I love the concept of an instruction manual that encourages you to interact with your kids and encourage their creativity! I won a free copy of this from a Goodreads giveaway so I thought I'd give it a spin. The book comes with some great ideas of how to "read" to your young children and how to spark their imagination as they "read" to you from these magical books. I don't have any children, but I will definitely pass this manual on to a coworker at my school (I teach).

This was a short, sweet read. I love the whole idea of an invisible book and the way this concept was written was charming. I would love to see a entire fiction written using this as a jumping off point.
Definitely a 5 star book!

Adorable and wonderful way to encourage reading, stories, and creativity. This book is short and sweet, but makes its point beautifully. I just love the concept of the invisible book and I'm sure any parent will enjoy reading this.

I love the concept of this small little book.
The invisible children's book... I need to find myself an invisible book now.
It's great for a super quick read. Like, this took me about ten minutes. But it was a great ten minutes.
