Alex Thomas Davis is primarily a singer songwriter, and has also worked across multiple industries. His books are aimed at children mainly, aged 7-14 but adults would enjoy reading them too. He only started writing in 2017 and hopes to write a cornucopia of children’s poetry books.
What’s one thing you would like to change about the way you handled writing and publishing your first book?
Nothing really it all went really well. As a songwriter who has written 50 albums, I decided to branch out into writing children’s poetry books, and I absolutely love it! I self published, and am currently working on book 5. The idea is to write 6-7 books and then send them all off neatly to publishers with a ribbon tied around them. So that is the plan.
What was the best expenditure of money you have made throughout this process?
I have found that self publishing doesn’t really reap rewards moneywise. It is a process I am doing in order to get noticed better. ie. funky front and back covers too. Although I did make it into the top 50 Children’s Poetry Books on Amazon, next to Dr Seuss and Benjamin Zepeniah!
