Our First Birthday

It was our first birthday a couple of weeks ago, a fabulous excuse for chocolate cake and a little celebration! I started And So We Begin last year as a home for my writing projects and as a launch pad for my first children's story and so much has happened in just twelve months.

Angel has been downloaded in 40 different countries, from Turkey to Taiwan, Mexico to Moldova! How wonderful to think of Alan Titchmarsh's dulcet tones and Ginny Walker's lovely lullaby captivating children all around the globe. Not to mention Kristyna Litten's sweet illustrations bringing the whole story to life. All because a strong-minded little Angel character came to me about ten years ago and demanded to be seen.

I've teamed up with the same developer who worked his magic last year, Stefan Nowak, to create a new app for this festive season and I'm very excited to say that Snow Globe: A Christmas Treat will be released in exactly one week's time. The Snow Globe allows you to play with Angel and her friends, to create endless scenes and to see the snow fall all around them. Lots of Christmassy fun for all ages.

Meanwhile, we are already starting to make preparations for Christmas 2014! We've started work on the book version of Angel's Great Escape and layouts are currently in progress, as you can see from the little sneak peek below.

We're very excited that the story will be released in a traditional format and hope that it will bring it to an even wider audience in the future.

So, let our second year begin! We're looking forward to sharing lots more ideas with you and as always, would love to hear your comments on our 'stories so far'.
