Update 16.1.2012: Usually I’d be preparing for National Storytelling Week at the end of January.
Not in 2012.
Right now I’m flat out recording, writing, editing, doing photo shoots, drawing, preparing page layouts…
DRAGON TALES is scheduled for spring launch as an illustrated book and e-book, also spoken word CD and audio download.
This is not so much a learning curve as a roller coaster: lots of fun – with shrieks…
