Kids & Kindles

Apologies for being out of touch with High Concepts of late, but I’ve been going great guns preparing for the launch of Trojan Tub Entertainment’s “Patria” website two weeks from tomorrow on November 1st. (What’s Trojan Tub? Click here.)

I’m writing web content this week, as well as recording the audio book of the first book in the Patria series, Stout Hearts & Whizzing Biscuits. Meanwhile, the folks at Snap Design continue their marvelous work constructing the site, and Ted Schluenderfritz continues to amaze with his delightful illustrations.

As I talk to people about Trojan Tub, the question tends to arise, “Are kids really reading books on Kindles, Nooks, and the like?” More and more, I think they are. A recent survey by Scholastic Publishers bears out the hunch. For a summary, click here.

And with Pottermore readying to launch at the end of this month, I believe the buzz around children and ebooks will only grow louder.

Last Christmas was the break-out season for ereaders and ebooks. This Christmas could very well be the break-out season for children’s ebooks.
