Today I’m happy to bring you the interview with Denver Kidd, author of Bubbles and Buddy! Please enjoy!
1) What is your author name and in what state do you live (or country if not in the US)?
My author name is Denver Kidd, and I’m from rural Australia.
2) What is the title of your newest book and what is the genre?
Bubbles and Buddy is my first Children’s Book.
3) What is the book about?
Bubbles and Buddy is for children between the ages of 2 – 8.
It’s main focus is that even if we look, feel or act differently, that family will always love each other and will always be family.
This is shown by the story of two kittens who are very different, but are still brothers.
4) Where did you come up with the idea?
The idea came from my own two children and their two kittens.
The elements of the story come from the experiences of having two siblings who are very different but who still love each other.
5) How long did it take you to write it?
I wrote the story in a few days, however the process of creating a book from my story has taken 6 months.
6) Did you learn anything from the project?
I have learnt so much, illustrating, book layouts, production, online marketing, publishing, elements of POD, advertising. I am still learning.
7) Do you have an author website and/or blog?
I have my author website
I am hoping to add a blog to this, with my journey so far.
8) Do you have any success tips to pass on to fellow authors? How about any great editors/cover artists?
Your local community is so supportive, reach out to them! I have library and school visits coming up and so far word of mouth has been so beneficial.
9) What genres do you like to read? Are you open to reading new authors and reviewing their work?
I love all genres, I have always been an avid reader of all things. I even went through a horror phase!
Of course, I have already helped a few people with advice on self publishing and read a few drafts. Send through any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
10) What is your favorite book of all time and why?
Dracula by Bram Stoker, my imagination always soars when I read it. Although I have so many books that are favourites!

Bubbles and Buddy is a bright and fun picture book for young children. The story is about two kitten brothers who I hope will make children smile and teach them about the relationship between siblings.
Read it today!
There was once a boy who was said to be good for nothing. No matter how hard he tried, it seemed as though he was certainly good for nothing at all. To add to this sad plight, the bullies teased him even more for two things: first, that he had no name; and second, that he had no father. Not that he still had a mother, for she has vanished a long time ago. But at least, it can be said, that he had some memories of her.
One day, this little boy takes off in an adventure of a lifetime that would help him discover the truth about himself and the world around him. Together with his firefly friend, they would travel into magical places, meet extraordinary creatures and learn priceless lessons along the way. Will he be able to discover his name? Will he finally realize his true worth?
“The Good For Nothing Boy” is a story about searching for one’s worth and one’s purpose.
I remember the times I felt like the boy in the story, not knowing what I’m really good at and not knowing my mission in life. Even though I have certain skills and talents, I often felt as though I’m not good enough. In today’s world where competition is commended and where we need to stand out from the rest every day, how do we prove our worth?
Many times, we fail to see just how important one life can be. We fail to see the impact of who we truly are in the greater scheme of things.
I hope that this book somehow helps you realize just how much you are worth. I hope it reveals to you your dignity as a person no matter your situation, and no matter the sufferings and challenges you’re going through.
