Welcome to #storyappchat!

What is #storyappchat? It’s a weekly Twitter meeting for those of us interested in creating storybook apps and ebooks for kids. We talk about all aspects of the business, from the latest software tools to avoiding burnout. Most of our weekly visitors identify themselves as:

  • Authors
  • Illustrators
  • Software Developers
  • Librarians
  • Educators
  • Consultants
  • App Reviewers
  • Parents

…but if you don’t fit into any of these categories, don’t worry. We’re happy to have you join us if you are interested in a behind-the-scenes look at children’s storybook apps/ebooks.

To take part in the chat, just start using the #storyappchat hashtag on Twitter at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/6:00 p.m. Pacific on Sunday nights. We’ll welcome you into the fold and try to answer any questions you might have, even if it’s your first Twitter chat!

We post topics on our Facebook page and on Twitter, so be sure to Like and Follow us there. After the chat, we generate a transcript so even if you missed the live discussion, you can benefit from the wisdom of the attendees.

Scroll down for the latest news, and we’ll look for you on Sunday evenings!
