Our Interview with the iPhone Mom!

Violet 2 Comments

Heather, from the iPhoneMom.com, was nice enough to invite us to interview on her very popular iPhone Review website targeted at iPhone owning mom’s. Heather was interested in knowing more about who is behind the scenes at My Black Dog Books and to learn more about author/illustrator Allison Keeme and her adventures with the Violet Interactive Storybook series. In the interview we talk about our latest applications Violet’s The Night Before Christmas and how we started with the idea of Violet and her adventures.

We had a lot of fun with the questions. To see the interview click on the image above.

Violet 2, Coming Soon! Really!

Violet No Comments

Hello everyone! We have been hard at work finishing up the second installment of the Violet series. I will be doing the finishing touches of the last few drawings today and begin voice-over work on the text in the coming week (yes, we are working on a Read-To-Me function!). The hope is to make this more of an “Artist’s Blog” in the future and keep you guys up to date on what I am doing daily. I’m a busy gal, but I’ll try to keep you as updated as possible and maybe sneak in some previews of the upcoming books as well.

Time to get back to work! Hope you are all enjoying “Violet.” #2 will be available soon!
