It’s been a whole year since my first book app landed in the app store , googleplay and the Tabeo 2 tablet. Time does go fast when you’re having fun. Writing and developing Grendel’s Great Escape was certainly that, plus a lot of hard work. It was trial by fire as I ventured into this relatively new field. Great friendships and relationships were formed while sharing resources with other authors, teachers, librarians, bloggers and app developers.

- Nominated for best storybook app and Best Elementary student app
Updates and printable:

Most of all, It’s reached it’s goal to create a fun reading experience for children globally. They’ve responded to the multimedia interactivity that this app features while parents appreciate the productive screen time.
What’s next? why it’s the printed picture book with added pages and enhanced storyline.
