It was a long a trying ride but I had a lot of fun doing it. I’ve learned a lot from the process of making this book, so I can move on to the next project with more insight. I hope it can bring a couple of smiles to faces.
You can get it now if you have an iPad or an Amazon Kindle! Other devices are in the works, as well as a talking, interactive version.
For those who have been following me for a while you have seen post after post of this book, that book, this app, and that sample page. But now, they have all come together in one single chance to make it all
Two books, “The Island and the Plough” and “Captain and Crow’s ABCs” (plus “The Island and the Plough” interactive iPad ebook app) are becoming real with the help of a Kickstarter campaign. Think of this a pre-order, not as a risk to invest in a project. The work is already done, we just need to get them printed!
Please, check it out and share with your friends. If you can’t fund, remember that just sharing the link and getting the word out means more than you might think.
There is big news for SketchbookJack. An interactive iPad ebook app is currently in the works. The first app will be “The Island and the Plough.” All the bold, black and white illustrations will come to life with animations, a narrator, and even an apple-catching mini-game. I don’t want to spoil too much, so stay tuned and I’ll post a few more screenshots.
Two more sample page layout mockups from the children’s letter book, “Captain and Crow’s ABCs.” Here, the Captain finds a giant carrrrrp, throws a darrrrrrrrt and finds his earrrrrrr. Good golly scalley waggins, the Captain is pretty darn good at naming words with R in them.
Here is a sneak peak of my latest book project. I am working on finding an agent and pitching around “The Island and the Plough” but I am continuing to build up other projects, because there are plenty more to come.
Here we have “Captain and Crow’s ABCs”. The Captain finds a smart Crow who challenges him to to a test. First he is asked if he knows his ABCs, to which the Captain replies “ARR!” only to be followed by asking what his favorite letter is. Of course, it is R. The crow challenges him to name a word for every letter in the alphabet that has an R sound in it. Here, the Captain is almost stumped by the letter I, and much confusion arises between I, eye and aye.
Captain is almost stumped with I, but then he finds a word that has an ARRRRR in it.
