The app trailer for A TROOP IS A GROUP OF MONKEYS is here!!! I am in love with its adorableness (and I can say that because although I wrote the words, I did not make the trailer so it’s not bragging :-)). Thanks to Stacey, Pamela, and Tim for the production, illustrations and music, respectively.

Also, I, along with Katie Davis, am hosting my first webinar. The topic is Getting Your Novel Off the Ground and features fellow Writer’s Renaissance faculty-member and bestselling author Mary Hoffman. Mary, as the author of more than 90 books — picture books, middle grade, nonfiction, YA and adult — will discuss planning, plotting and researching your novel so itΒ soars.

It’s FREE and it’s our way of bringing a bit of Italy right into your home. If you can’t make it live, you’ll get the replay. AND, if you have even the tiniest inkling that you might want to attend Writer’s Renaissance next April, we’ve included a great discount on registration for webinar attendees.

Sign up here for the webinar! Hope to see you there

  3. Again, this trailer is awesome! Sadly, I don’t have an ipad, only an iphone. Do u think your app will also be on the iphone?

  4. That is SO cool! I love how the song, near the end, repeats itself, “A troop is a group, a troop is a group…of monkeys!” Such a catchy little tune. It’s splendid! And to think that I helped edit it a bit. Wow!

  5. FanTABulous!! Whoo-hoo congratulations, Julie. Very clever. Fun music…I particularly like the little bee as in ‘follow the bouncing ball’ er bee at the end. Great rhyming. Doesn’t miss a beat.
