Appy Times are here again!

A while ago myself and Rich Hanson released a series of fun mobile games under the name "Appy Times" we are now updating and re-releasing them as Putty CAD exclusive games. Initial releases will include variations of the popular match 3 game "Clone Zoo"

Under Appy Times we achieved over 50,000 downloads of the most popular games so we are hoping to supercede this with the inclusion of new achievements and social boasting built in.

We uploaded Clone Zoo last year to keep things ticking over and it should go live today with the new features and new branding. Here's the current version...

The book I illustrated for Christina Gabbitas ( Share Some Secrets ( which deals with the delicate subject of child abuse is supporting Barnardo's in their 150th Anniversary year. A new version has been printed especially to coincide with this. The book has been praised by the NSPCC and is also available in their library.

Christina will be signing the book at various locations in the coming weeks along with the Felicity Fly series and children's poetry books.

If you can get along to any of her events please do! Also please check out her websites for the poetry initiative which is currently running where children have chance to be published in an actual book.

New book for 2016 - Dinki - Mount Boom

Started the new year with a new book. I had the idea for Mount Boom a while ago a tale where the valley where Dinki lives and the local nursery for dino eggs is threatened by the volcanic eruptions of Mount Boom. As if that wasn't enough to contend with, could there really be fire breathing monsters beneath the mountain?

I'll be releasing new panels for the story every Friday in 2016 to keep the book moving and allow time for my other work, so there should be around 2-3 pages a month.

Keep track of the posts on twitter via @DinkiDinosaur, here and on the Dinki Dinosaur facebook page.

As the new year started on a Friday, I posted the first panel online with an updated cover.

I hope you and your loved ones have a really fun 2016!
