Join me in an online experiment

Help me sky rocket the charts & click to download my new free iBook, ‘How to make an alien activity book’

And yes I realise not everyone has an iPad, so if you have friends with children who you think would enjoy this, then send them this link.

Free kids activity book on alien for iPad

Yes, I’m still here at the bottom of the image in the hope that if you haven’t clicked yet, you’ll do so now with a bit more patient prodding.

Those of you who have followed my site over the last 4 years know that I don’t go shoving my stuff down your throat (very often). So, if you’ve enjoyed my work so far, your finger clicking help would be appreciated as the e-world is a tough environment to crack. If you really want to make my day, then rate it on iBooks too.

So, back to the experiment. You’ll be able to check in live to see if the eBook is making traction. Once I have 5 ratings, there should be an overall rating displayed in the iBook Store. (Why 5 – well, even Google was a bit stumped on what number it was and the best it could find was ‘hear say’ on forums). Anyway, together let’s see what happens.

Are you in? Then click now.

So what do you think?

I’m the process of sprucing up my website with a range of things (actually ideas) I’ve been hiding on the back shelf until now.  

But I can’t do this one on my own – I need your help by giving me your thoughts on this quick survey.

I’m creating a monthly newsletter for subscribers (this is in addition to the blog subscription you might already be on). But it’s a bit hard to entice people to click that funky new subscribe button without giving away something for free. So, here’s the question.



Never ending laughs with this perpetual folding card freebie

I’m really excited by this freebie (must be the engineer in me). When I first saw it in action I couldn’t stop playing with it.

Four views, one card. Make this simple card and share with your friends today!

This is no ordinary card. You get four views wrapped up in the one neat card – all you have to do is fold and fold and fold.

And that’s the best thing – it never ends. Keep on folding and eventually you get back to beginning again.

It is surprisingly easy to make, and if you’re a bit of a geek, you’ll be able to see how it works by looking at how the template is constructed.
