It has not been an easy project, but MISTER ORANGE is making his debut on iTunes. He has uploaded correctly at last, and after awaiting judgement by the folks at Apple who decide what can or cannot be published on their hallowed site, he is now “LIVE on 51 stores across the world”!
He is very excited but a bit nervous. A lot hangs in the balance. Since he first saw the light of day on the iPad, it has taken him over two months to scramble his way through the tricky obstacles of Procreate, Book Creator, iBooks, iTunes Connect, iTunes Producer etc etc. He could paper the kids’ nursery with error messages on failed uploads to Apple and emails between Dan from Book Creator, and Lynn from iTunes Support. (It was a weird date-and-time-bug; Dan is working to fix it ASAP.)
So all MISTER ORANGE can think about is, will he be a Big Hit? The under-fives in his author’s life love him, (see the header picture), but will the rest of the world feel the same?
Will “MISTER ORANGE The Cat” be a mega-success story in the history of children’s picture book publications, or will he sink to the bottom of the iTunes pool? His fate, dear Reader, lies in your hands.
He is biting his claws, anxiously..
The thing is, I’ve promised him it will all be worth it. And whilst I wouldn’t say he has an inflated ego, he firmly believes that his stories are the cutest, most heart-warming humorous verse stories ever written, with the best ever illustrations.
