Readers' Favorite Review of It's Not Goodbye, It's See You Soon - 5 Stars!!!

Here is the latest review for It’s Not Goodbye, It’s See You Soon. Enjoy!!!

Reviewed By Erin Nicole Cochran for Readers’ Favorite

“N.D. Byma’s It’s Not Goodbye, It’s See You Soon is a children’s book that centers around a little boy named Eddie and his mother. The narrative of the son is non-rhyming but there are some areas that do rhyme when the mother speaks. It’s a beautiful message. The dialogue feels very honest and real as opposed to other children's books. This book won’t dumb down your child in any way, and I appreciate that so much. The illustrations have a life all their own and are colorful, giving you a heart-warming sort of feeling that perfectly matches with the story as a whole.

Author N.D. Byma reached right into my being and touched my soul with his children’s book, It’s Not Goodbye, It’s See You Soon. In only twenty-six beautifully illustrated pages, the author managed to make me cry quite quickly and that’s somewhat difficult. When I first saw the title, I had a feeling that this book was really something quite special, and it was. But it was even more special than I expected it to be. The colors of the illustrations by illustrator Baylee Mastrud are vibrant and make a beautiful but silent “pop” sound, if you can imagine that with me. 

You really connect with the two characters that the book centers around, that being the mother and the son. I really liked that even though the father was mentioned earlier on, the book focused on the mother’s relationship with her son. This shows that even though there are two parents, we can have our own particular bond with one, and another bond with the other; they don’t have to be so intertwined and the same. This book will prepare you and your children for the times ahead that are unavoidable, but how fleeting those in between moments can be.”

Book 5 update!!

Big news!!! It's Not Goodbye, It's See You Soon is all finished up and has been sent off to print! I cannot express my gratitude enough to every person who supported the book during its Kickstarter and helped spread the word. You fine folks are why I write.

As a thank you, I wanted to post the first few pages of the book for everyone to enjoy. As the release date gets closer, I will post more pages but, until then, please enjoy this sneak peek of It's Not Goodbye, It's See You Soon.

It's been a few months since I posted an update but great things have been coming together!

I am getting incredibly close to making an official announcement about my next book, as well as some other cool things but, until that happens, I wanted to share a couple updates. First off, I can officially announce that my fifth book will be called 'It's Not Goodbye, It's See You Soon' and will address the fear of saying goodbye through the eyes of a young boy named Eddie. I am working with the ridiculously talented Baylee Mastrud for this book and, as you can see, she is a spectacular illustrator!

More about the story will be announced soon so please keep checking back! - N.D.

The story of King Boogie

King Boogie second hardcover printing is here!!

King Boogie second hardcover printing is here!!

Earlier today I was reminded by my old friend Facebook that my first book arrived in hardcover four years ago. While I usually don't pay much attention to these reminders of years passed, this one was caught my attention for a couple reasons.

First off, it was surprising to think about the four years between that book arriving and today. I never planned on writing anything besides that one single book but I am now seeing my fifth book come to life in as many years. Second, I never believed that there would be a demand for me to print a second hardcover edition of the book. It was just something silly to do so I could say I did it; nothing more. 

What started off as a fun way to write a love letter to my son and other new and stressed-out parents became God's way of sending me on a path I had never dreamed. This silly story opened the floodgates for many more ideas and the incredible support I received inspired me to bring those stories to life. 

Thank you King Boogie for being my starting point on this journey. Thank you Liam for giving me all the material I could have dreamed for when I wrote this book and, lastly, thank you to everyone who has purchased this book and told Boogie's story to your loved ones. You wonderful people are why a second hardcover printing was needed and is now available. Thank you!
