Crow Cottage Publishing, producing quality picture books in digital formats

ImageI spent yesterday afternoon in the company of Stephen McCallum of Crow Cottage Publishing, my new digital publisher.  Stephen is one of those super-talented guys who is an art director, illustrator, musician, games and film animator, and now publisher. We laid down the audio narration for Moonsnail Song, a lyrical story that celebrates imagination and the magic of the seashore. Sheena Lott’s illustrations beautifully capture plovers dancing in and out of waves, “a dozen different sea stars”, otter rolling in swaying kelp, “moonsnail egg cases made from a million unhatched eggs”, and the quiet moments that make the seashore a place that draws us back time and time again.  I can’t wait to see the finished ebook which will be available for i-pads.

The ebook version of Moonsnail Song won’t be available until mid September, but in the meantime, you can check out the first few e-books from Crow Cottage Publishing.  You’ll be impressed with their latest offering, The Foxes Kettle, lavishly illustrated by Vic Bosson and beautifully narrated by the author, Laura Langston.

Crow Cottages started out with releases of Stephen’s own illustrated picture books, Belle’s Journey and A Dog for a Friend, both written by Marilynn Reynolds.  These are lovely titles for the little ones in your life.  They make perfect gifts, especially for modern families who value literature.

Crow Cottage will be releasing more digital picture books in the near future.  Their commitment is to produce beautiful, quality literature for young readers in digital format.  I’m so impressed with these gorgeous ebooks and I hope you will be too.
