A Play in the Works!

I just received the proofs in the mail for "PRINCESS KIM And Too Much Truth". Looks great!!
The book is being printed now and will be published March 1, 2011. This book is the sequel to "Princess K.I. M and the Lie that Grew." Now-- here's the NEWS- I am working with a Producer and Music talent to transform these books into a Musical. We had our first "creative" brainstorming meeting yesterday and we are all very excited to see these books come to life on stage. I am hoping to give you a glimpse, through this blog,  into the creative process through script, music, lyrics and the production.
Stay tuned.

Do you remember my book "Wednesday is Spaghetti Day"? Maybe you do- maybe you don't...but either way I'm happy to announce that readers will soon be able to download it in several formats. The  APP (for iphone/ ipad) is in production by picpocketbooks.com. Above is a screen shot of the upcoming APP. It will have wonderful audio as well as some interactive elements.  Also in production is the ebook format (.epub) which will be available through my website as well as ebookstores including, ibookstore, and B&N (for color Nook.)

Now, some background- "Wednesday is Spaghetti Day" was the very first book I authored and illustrated. It was published by Scholastic as a hardcover in 1990. It stayed in print as a paperback until 2008 when the rights were reverted back to me. Over the course of 18 years in print, "Wednesday is Spaghetti Day" sold over 250,000 copies. Everytime I do a talk or a school visit someone always inquires as to how they can get a copy. I am delighted to be able to soon offer it once again.
So - Please keep checking my blog where I will announced the RE-publishing of one of my favorite books! (at that time- I'll tell you about the book itself, inspired by my Italian upbringing!)
