Did you write a review on Amazon when you purchased “A Guide to San Diego Sea Shells” and/or “Shelly Cat By the Sea: Adventures at the Beach”?
If you didn’t and you could take a few minutes to go back and write a review, it makes a huge difference to the selling and promotion of my books. Here’s why: “The best way to influence the success of your own book directly is to get Amazon reviews. This is no easy task, but fifty reviews is a goal you can set for yourself. Fifty Amazon reviews will bump you up into a new bracket of visibility on Amazon, based on the algorithms they have set up, which make Amazon the powerful recommendation engine it is.” Your support is much appreciated!

A Guide to San Diego Sea Shells Reference Book

“A Guide to San Diego Sea Shells” is a reference book for Southern California sea shells.

I wrote “A Guide to San Diego Sea Shells” after realizing that all the shell books I found were shells of the world or the South Pacific, but that there was no sea shell book about Southern California shells.  It took 3 1/2 years of researching the shells before I wrote this book.  I learned interesting and fun facts like mussels live 20 years and there is a silhouette of an owl inside a Giant Owl Limpet shell!  

I painted the watercolor illustrations of the shells from sea shells I found on San Diego beaches. The name of each shell and interesting information about each shell is added in calligraphy.  The illustrations share fun information as well as the names of the shell. In the back of the book are pages of photographs I took of sea shells.  


Using “A Guide to San Diego Sea Shells”, the next time you pick up a shell on the beach you will be able to find out about the shell in your hand!   Take a moment and order your copy for the summer!…
