When I was in the process of making my book a reality, I had a crazy thought–if I’m going to go through all this hassle for one book, I might as well start a little company and do this for other people. Several days later, I stood in the living room of my friend Brenda Ponnay, aka Secret Agent Josephine, and pitched her a crazy little idea:
What if I turned those ABC flashcards you designed and sold out of into a picture book for the Kindle?
And what if you wrote and illustrated two more books?
And released them in time for the release of the new Kindle Fire?
Well, that time has come. I am incredibly proud to announce that Secret Agent Josephine has been doing her share to take over the internet in the past three days–and she’s not going anywhere any time soon.
Brenda kicked off a 26-stop blog tour on Monday (one blog for each letter of the alphabet) and we’re giving away signed prints of her letters at each stop. Plus, those books I asked her to create? They are fabulous and already garnering praise (and sales!).
I’ve been honored to play a small role in bringing these books to audiences, but now it’s your turn! Visit Secret Agent Josephine to get all the blog tour info–follow along for a chance to win the daily print giveaway AND a super prize for collecting all the secret clues along the way. But first- make sure you pick up at least one of her books! They’re available in ebook and paperback editions and I’ve heard rumors that kids are ignoring snack time and the TV for a chance to flip through the books on Mommy’s iPad. (But you didn’t hear that from me…)
Ready, set, download!
