Rich Okuns follow-up to his Balboa Press release, The Sun, the Moon, the Stars and Maya, is the first in a new series of four childrens books through Bellissima
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (PRWEB) February 14, 2014
Balboa Press, a division of Hay House, Inc., a leading provider in publishing products that specialize in self-help and the mind, body and spirit genres, announced that Balboa Press author and illustrator Rich Okuns latest childrens book, Earth, Wind, Fire and Maya, has been acquired by Bellissima Publishing, LLC.
The title is the follow-up to The Sun, the Moon, the Stars and Maya, which Okun self-published through Balboa Press in June 2013. Okun said plans are in place to publish several more Maya books in the coming year, as well as an iPhone/iPad app called Mayas Daily Meds, which is tentatively due out in March.
I am so excited to be able to continue my work with Bellissima Publishing, said Okun. The reason I decided to self-publish was to get out there and be seen, and thanks to the good people at Balboa Press, thats exactly what happened. I am very grateful to have been found. It is only the beginning.
Bellissimas acquisition of Okuns series represents the latest acquisition of a Balboa Press title by a traditional publisher. Since Balboas launch in 2010, several authors have made the leap from self-published to traditionally published, including Fabienne Frederickson, whose title Embrace Your Magnificence was acquired by Hay House in late 2013.
We congratulate Rich on the acquisition of his original work by Bellissima Publishing, said Keith Ogorek, Author Solutions senior vice president of marketing, Were pleased that Balboa Press has served in helping Rich reach his goal of having his work traditionally published.
