I have published Bumbershoot (it of the WIP-title Umbrella) for your enjoyment. (hopefully)

If you click on the link, you’ll see more.The story also contains some fun links, so be sure to check them out.

If you’re an educator you have probably already encountered the Book Creator app. I used it for the video. It is very easy to use. If you are willing/able to jump through all the hoops, you can sell your creations on iTunes too.

The free story is also available on Smashwords.
