Grandma's self-publishing story

My next door neighbor, Priscilla Mitchell, retired in 1997 after working 19 years with autistic students in special education. One day in the summer of 1997, as she examined the beautifully detailed wild columbine flower in her garden, she marveled, "how do those little parts know which way to go? Surely Good has programmed the whole process! Children are impressed with computers, they ought to realize God had His computers a long time ago". She went in the living room, to her favorite quite place, and began to write down those inspirations. The first few lines rhymed, and so thus began her book about seeds.
After finishing the initial draft, My neighbor sent it out to friends, few published friends among them, for critiquing. When it was time to find a publisher, She quickly decided to go with WinPress Publishing, a leader in Christian self-publishing, since traditional Christian book publishers rarely take risks on unknown Christian authors. Priscilla told me later that her experience, as the first-time author, with Wine Press Publishing Company has been very positive; this was especially true with their marketing assistance and bookstore distribution services.
The most difficult part of self-publishing for Priscilla was to find and coordinate illustrators. There were total of 8 illustrators did works for the book. The books were printed in a factory at Hong Kong, Priscilla and her husband went there to see the process while touring Hong Kong.
Right before the Christmas of 1998, Priscilla self-published book, "Seeds: God's Awesome Computers" finally came into being. 2500 copies of book were published as the 1st edition. Another 3000 books published in 2003.
