Guest Host for 1/22/12 #storyappchat: Melissa Northway!

We are so excited to share our special guest host for this Sunday’s (January 22) #storyappchat: Melissa Northway, author of Penelope the Purple Pirate!

Penelope the Purple Pirate is a delightful story about a little girl who turns her room into a swashbucklin’ pirate adventure. Northway came up with the story while creating bedtime stories for her daughter Kate:

My husband and I have to be pretty creative in coming up with new adventures each night. That is how Penelope the Purple Pirate came about. My husband was talking about “Red Beard” and his adventures with Kate. That night I wrote Penelope the Purple Pirate.

The Penelope story is now available both in print and in Kindle format, but it started as a storybook app from PicPocket Books.

In addition to answering your questions, Northway will be giving away promo codes for Penelope and more! Of course, you are welcome to check out the app ahead of time too. Bring your questions for Melissa, and we will see you this Sunday (January 22) at 9:00 p.m. EST!
