The ipad meets the childrens book

Thought I'd post this excellent article link from publishers weekly. It's all about the ipad and how childrens publishers are either embracing it or waiting to see how it all pans out, but it all leaves you with the feeling that there's a potential revolution about to happen in publishing. Whilst some of us will always want hard copies of our favourite books, newspapers and magazines (and music too), there is a generation coming through who are happy to own their music content digitally, without a hard copy, as I am sure they will be happy to access their favourite magazines, graphic novels and paperbacks too in this way. And why not ? On the subject of graphic novels here's a link about the Marvel comics ipad app - enjoy !

Elly Book 3

Two good things happened since I last updated, 'theiphonemom' reviewed Elly Book 1, and Elly Book 2 (goes to school) and Book 3 (the windy day) are now up on itunes. Hopefully the review (I did note from google analytics that traffic was arriving via iphonemoms site to my site) will increase sales, together with the force of numbers, well three titles ! In fact an editor at a childrens publisher once said to me about one of my ideas ' bring me a series of three than I'll look at it' - so there you go. Starting another app project whilst thinking about book 4, which may well be 'goes camping'.....
