For the past couple of weeks, I've been working on a children's story entitled Waking Up Grandma. It's the story of old Mrs McKay, who falls asleep anywhere, anytime. Her grandchildren, Kevin and Nicole McKay, take advantage of it and pull a lot of pranks on her while she's asleep. The results are hysterically funny to the twins. But is Grandma having as much fun as they are?
Waking Up Grandma is published by Damaria Senne Media and will be released on Amazon Kindle on Monday 26th March 2012. It retails at $2.99 per copy.
Meanwhile, I do have some goodies for you which I hope will make your visit to Storypot fun.

So far the people who have looked at the covers are divided as to whether the blurring of some backgrounds works or not. Some love it, others not so much. Also please tell me what you think of it?
A big thank you to all the people who helped me to create the cover:
Pontsho Senne for taking photo
Minkey Senne ( aka Mma) for graciously agreeing to model for the cover photo
Otshepeng Senne for the graphic design
Yes, it was a family affair. It was also fun to work together and I hope we will have other opportunities to do it again.
