About

You know how you read a story and you wonder how much the main character reflects the author? Well, you don't have to wonder in this case. Stop reading now  if you'd rather keep the mystery so you can debate it in your next reading club. 

Too late. Yep, I'm the cat who hated reading. I was a terrible student. And to make it worse, my older sister had straight A's! "What's wrong with Will?", my parents, teachers, and clergy would say. There's one word that most accurately describes what's wrong with a child who hates reading. Nothing

Sure, not reading can be incredibly painful. I was so relieved when I finally found that reading can be desirable, fun, even joyful. I hope my story will let others know they aren't alone, and perhaps, just perhaps, open them to the possibility that reading can be fun.

We've had some wild questions lately. Check out FAQ below. Scroll all the way to the bottom.

          __________________________________________________

Step One - storyboard of sketches - done!

Step Two - clean and color - done!

This means PDF ebook will be delivered early, the day after Kickstarter funds us. With enough interest, I could publish it on paper. 

Step Three - animation tweens - in progress

I'll post an example here when done.

Step Four - animation sounds

Step Five - icons and splash screens 

Step Six - finalize app design with programmer

Step Seven - get app back from programmer

Step Eight - submit for Apple Store approval 

Step Nine - announce to world and deliver to Kickstarter backers
