Rennie Griffiths’ Wee Jimmy Stories
A while back I received an email from an old Q96 boss (perhaps I should say “former” because age is a relative thing?) Rennie Griffths. He said he’d seen on my Linkedin profile that I help people publish paperbacks. He went on to tell me he had written over thirty children’s short stories called the Wee Jimmy Stories. Could I help him do that, he asked. Of course the answer was “yes”. So this post will not only tell a bit about his books, but also to highlight how proud of Rennie I am. it will also explain a little bit how I work to help people create books in Canva and publish them on Amazon’s KDP. Since the pandemic, that’s become a specialty.
The Origin of Rennie’s Stories
Phone Chat & Then Canva Training
Like with any of my one-to-on clients, Rennie and I first had a phone call whereby he explained what he had done so far. He told me of his hopes and intentions for the books.
Since all the books that I tend to help people create are designed in Canva (both the interior manuscript and the cover), I suggested he take one of my webinars to learn now to use it. He did. Then I knew he was going to be proficient enough to get on with publishing his series.

Summary of Sorts
Now that my big, new Branding/Canva webinar has been presented for the first time (it’s been all-consuming for the past six weeks), I guess I need to follow Rennie’s lead and get back to my book projects. One is about my father and the other is an updated version of my Essential ’80s Pop Quiz trivia book. I’ll finish the blog on that eighties project soon.
And the other thing I am collaborating on is a Ted Lasso conference called #LassoCon. If you’re a Ted Head, too, then follow the Twitter profile to learn more. A blog will be live in the next few days about that too. Maybe I’ll just do a podcast and talk about all of this stuff so you can just listen instead of read? Who knows? All I know is I need to take some time off. As I often say Self-care is the new health care. Until next time, I’m Thea, saying see-ya.
