Also... audiobooks.

One other project I'm working on right now is taking the 11 Captain Disaster short stories that I wrote years ago, reworking them slightly and then recording them as audiobooks.  The first episode is almost done.  More information here.

Chloe the Cherry Tomato - first draft finished

Yes it's finally finished, or at least the first cut is.  I will be going back to this and deciding (after getting the experts - my children - to give their opinion of of the story) whether it is better to keep it as it is (a short story of around 2.5K words) or expand it into a young reader novel (which would be roughly 10K words).  Not having to submit to a publisher I'm free to do it however I want to, but it depends what my kids feel about it.  Then it's a case of getting the illustrations done and fixing up the formatting ready for publication - firstly as an ebook and then a paperback.

Although this is kind of a follow up to That's Not Fair!, it is not going to be in the same style - I'm not going for a young children's picture book this time, more an early reader story.  It came about because as soon as we had physical copies of That's Not Fair! in the house, my younger daughter wanted her own story too :-)

Captain Disaster: Death Has A Million Stomping Boots novelisation started

I've got other projects on the go but this is the one my heart is drawn to atm.  We'll have to see how it goes...

(You can buy the game it's based on here.)
