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!)

This is wonderful, Maryann! I enjoyed reading the post too - so many copies and such a long time. Glad that this new technology can extend the life of the book.

Best to you Maryanne.
