 :yippee Hi all! My name is Danielle Wilson! Last year I authored and designed a new board book series and formed a small book publishing company called Left Hand Book House with my first 5 titles. Since then we have launched our 6th title and are about to finalize our 7th! Between the 6 titles we've sold about 7,000 books and are sold in 180 retailers (sharing this cause I have no idea if that's a lot or a little- hoping someone can give me some insight). I'm excited to have a community of people in the book world to talk with and learn from!

Welcome, Danielle. I think 7,000 books in one year is very good. Happy continued sales to you!

:welcome2 Glad to have you with us, Danielle! I enjoyed visiting your website. Your books look wonderful and it sounds like you've found a much needed niche to fill. As Debbie said, 7000 books in one year is very good. And the fact that you have your books with 180 retailers is also great. Congratulations on your successes and best wishes on continued sales.
