Pajama Girl has arrived!

     Ladies and Gentlemen, I am proud to announce that you can now download my e-picturebook, PAJAMA GIRL!
     It is the all-too-real tale of a preschool girl who assumes a super hero identity, complete with super powers, at bedtime. 
     I can't help but smile every time I see the cover because Ingvard the Terrible, (who is the opposite of terrible when it comes to illustrating), did such a perfect job nailing this character.  The smirk, the stance, the footy pajamas, I love it!
     I don't know who she is, but the Meegenius narrator did a fantastic job reading the book as well.  Can I also admit the fact that hearing her sweet, cheerful voice say, "Illustrated by Ingvard the Terrible" makes me laugh too?   
So, yeah, you might say I'm extremely happy with how this whole venture turned out.  I hope you will be happy with the book as well.

Quick note about the book:
     As much I would like to, I cannot send anyone a copy of the book.  This is the truth of digital publishing.  I can't do a book signing unless you want me to sign your Ipad, Ipod, Iphone, or computer screen with a permanent marker.  (for the record, I would be happy to do that).



  1. I know, I love that lady's voice, too!

    And since digital publishing is becoming more and more of a reality, someone needs to figure out a way to replace the age old "book signing" idea with some other self promo concept. Hmm...

  2. I think we're just the people to figure this out, Ingvard. Maybe you could do a goat signing? Or a village pillage to promote the book?
    I'll be happy to sell pajamas and sign bunny slippers. What do you say?

  3. The lovely lady is Shelly Kay. She is a wonderful singer and songwriter and we're thrilled to have her as the voice of Pajama Girl! Here's a link to some of her songs - http://www.myspace.com/shelleykaymusic. We need to figure out a digital signing of some sort : )

  4. Thanks for dropping by to let us know, David. I'll be checking out that link right now. :)

  5. Would it be neat if Pajama Girl was a stand alone book in the app store? The Pajama Girl would be selling right next to Dr. Seuss, Toy Story, etc? What do you think?

  6. David, do you mean it'd be available as it's own book for Ibook or something like that? I think that sounds awesome!

  7. I enjoyed the preview of your book, Sarah! I could see how much work you put into this. Seeing the fruits of your hard work must be so exciting!

    I also was thinking of you when someone gave me the Versatile Blogger Award and the opportunity to pass it on. So I chose you and a few other writers to be the recipients of this award.

  8. It's a stand alone book app in the paid book category. We're hoping this will open up Pajama girl to an audience outside of the MeeGenius! app. It was just approved by iTunes late last night so it's for sale right now. Here's the link: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pajama-girl/id439073201?mt=8!

  9. Thank you, David! The app. looks great. I'm so happy with all the work everyone has done to make this story really come to life. It's a dream come true.
