Super news for you this week on three counts.
Firstly, a reminder that Bradley and the Magic Carpet will be available for FREE tomorrow, 3rd April, for the first time ever on Kindle. Just check to make sure the cost is zero before you 'purchase' on Amazon. This link should take you there for most countries.
So make sure you grab a copy then.
Secondly, some very exciting news to announce that Jessica DeShong has done an absolutely amazing video, telling the story of Bradley and the Magic Carpet. This video has just been released on her You Tube channel Miss Jessica's World and I really think she's done a fantastic take on it. I LOVE the sultan ... exactly as I would have imagined him portrayed.
There's even a soundtrack and a Q&A session with me at the end. I think it's perfect for when you want someone entertained for ten minutes or so! If it comes to that, Jessica has many wonderful videos on her channel, I've seen quite a few.. so I think you will find plenty more to watch there, and she is adding new stories all the time.
Jessica is multi-talented, so you will also find her singing great songs of her own composition and doing educational material as well.
Finally, I'm very pleased to announced that I have finished paintings for all fourteen spreads of my new and fourth up-coming picture book. I've also done a rough design for the cover. This means that the end goal is looming in sight. I will now start all the post-processing work to make sure all the images are crystal clear for printing and that the pictures snap and pop off the page. Well, that's my fervent hope anyway. No pressure, eh? I'm pleased with how it's going, but there's still a mountain to climb.
Once these images are processed, then the book-build won't be far behind and I will start being able to at least tell you something about the story and offer some glimpses!
So it's just left to wish you a wonderful weekend and hope you have fun and games whatever you do...
