If you've ever wondered what inspired an author to write a story or create a book app, then you're going to love our new Author Interview series.

Our co-founder, Karen Robertson, featured author interviews on her Digital Kid's Author website before it was rudely hacked! It was one of the most popular segments of her website so we've decided to recreate it here.

Starting next week, we'll publish author interviews as blog posts on Book App Alliance.

You'll be amazed at how varied these author stories are. Some are author-illustrators who used do-it-yourself tools to publish their book app on a small budget.

Others assembled big teams and raised money to fund production.

IS THERE AN AUTHOR YOU'D LIKE US TO INTERVIEW?
