Many months ago, I decided to try my hand at writing and illustrating for a digital picture book platform and Nils at uTales offered this possibility. You'll find a host of wonderful books - some with sound and animation, some classics, and some original picture books written and illustrated by some, or books of collaborations between authors and illustrators. It's a delight to share the news that two of my books are available for viewing and downloading: "Launch!" (written and illustrated by me - remember the IllustrationFriday.com prompt animation I did awhile back?) - and a retelling of the classic, "The Gingerbread Man." Initially illustrated for the SCBWI event I attended and then finished up for uTales - animations and sounds too! : )
Anyhoo..one of the best things about this endeavor is knowing that for each of the books' downloads, a portion (25%) will go to help build schools in developing worlds through a charity called Pencils of Promise. To date, the organization has built more than 30 schools.
