How To Decide On A Pet

When you have a poetic soul and you write a book for children, that projection just glows through, seeping into the consciousness like a breeze. Ramona Morrow, accomplished poet and avid reader, has written “Jamie’s Pet” in the most profound way that elevates what many considers to be a normal decision-making process.

Jamie’s Pet”, as the title suggests, is about a boy’s indecision for a household pet. He has been wanting one, has been thinking about it, and when he got to the pet store, he was flustered by the many choices facing him. What began as an exciting plan is turning out to be confusing, and above all, overwhelming excursion that may or may not yield a result.

Ramona Morrow works in her skill for creating phrases into stories in “Jamie’s Pet”. She presents, in a language and illustrations most appealing to children, the many factors that must be looked at when deciding on a household pet. To a child, it’s about that “perfect pet, perfect friend” and to a grown up, its about guiding the child according to what the child can manage in terms of care, love and affection.

Unsurprisingly, the book is inspired from the author’s real, short-lived-pet-drama. In her words, the goal was to get a pet that was good for Jamie, and a good fit for the family. Children will surely love to pick up her book and read it for hours, it imparts good values and ideas that impact how they see the world.

Jamie’s Pet” will likewise touch the parents’ hearts, or any reader’s, as it is full of warmth and love. Ramona Morrow knows how to reach an audience. After all, she’s a poet, with works published in ten different poetry book publications, and she is working on another book.

frequently asked  QUESTIONs AND ANSWERS

These are common Questions that are asked of Ramona. And here are Ramona's Answers. You can ask Ramona questions as well, so email her and see your question(s) here.

Q - Who/what was your inspiration to write this book?

A - My son was my inspiration for writing Jamie’s Pet.

Q - What motivated you to eventually begin work on this book?

A - When Jamie was younger, he liked it when I would tell him stories with his name inserted in them. It made him feel special. Jamie heard a song on the radio, ‘Jamie’s Cryin,’ and he thought the song was written for him. No matter how many times I told him it wasn’t. Jamie did not want to hear it. He wouldn’t take ‘NO’ for an answer. So, I just let him be.  I decided to write a story for him about him. Then, he told me I was the best mom. That’s all I needed to hear.

Q - Was this book influenced by your own personal life experiences?

A - I guess it was. I took Jamie to visit a pet store when he was little and this is how our visit went.

Q - How do you overcome writers block? How long did it take for you to complete the manuscript?

A - I found the best way for me to overcome writers block was to step away from my manuscript. I would watch TV or a movie, listen to music, or clean the house. Sometimes it would take a few hours to a few weeks before I went back to the manuscript. Once I stepped away, I didn't think about the manuscript at all. I just cleared my mind. Then, out of nowhere, ideas would come flowing and I could go back to writing again.

It took me about 6 months to complete the manuscript. I kept revising it. I would leave it for awhile, then go back, and read it again. The process would repeat itself until I was happy with the manuscript and nothing else needed to be changed.

Q - Is this your first officially published work? Are you working on another book or sequel/prequel?

A - Yes, Jamie’s Pet is my first officially published work. I am in the process of writing a second book.

Q - What types of books do you read for leisure? Do the books you read for leisure influence what you write?

A - I read autobiographies like Michelle Obama, Shania Twain, Tina Turner, Anderson Cooper and Gloria Vanderbilt for example.

I also read cookbooks, and cake decorating books. I read them like novels.

Q - Discuss the pride of being a published author.

A - The pride of being a published author is like nothing I felt before I was so proud of myself, so happy, so gitty, and so relieved it was over and finally published. My baby is now my reality. No matter who I came across I pulled 'Jamie's Pet' out of my purse to show them my book.

Q - How did publishing your first book change your process of writing?

A – My process of writing never changed when I published my first book. I still follow the same process because it works for me.

Q – Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?

A – I am more of an original writer than trying to deliver what my readers want. Less pressure as a writer.

Q – If you could tell your younger self anything, what would it be?

A – The thing I would tell my younger self would be to be more disciplined with my writing. Write about everything. This would help polish my writing skills and make me more confident as a writer.

Q – What does literary success look like to you?

A – Literary success looks like J. K. Rowling. I would love to be successful like her.

Q – What’s the best way you think to market your book?

A – The best way to market my book is Press Releases, Book Fairs, Advertising, and Book Signings. Basically, as much exposure as possible to get the word out there.

Q – What kind of research do you do? How long do you spend researching before beginning a book?

A – The research I did was taking my son to the pet store to see what kind of animals they had there, what products they sold, and what a pet store looked like.

Q – How many hours a day do you write?

A – I write about 4 hours a day. If I have ideas, I write. I don’t force the process.

Q – What are the ethics of writing about your book?

A – The ethics of writing about my book was to make my book perfect, promote and market the book everywhere and treat my book as a small business venture that must succeed. Do everything I can to make the book well known and for every child to have a copy and love the book.
