I've just posted a new blog item on Kids' Bookapp marketing and the App Store's Kids' Category.... enjoy and please do feel free to comment :)
I also write children's fiction. I self-published The Secret Lake in September 2011 and my second book Eeek! (about a soccer-mad runaway alien...) in March 2012. You'll find my books on most major online store websites including Amazon, B&N and Waterstones... both have been very well received :)
