About the book
Help children learn how to keep their cool.

"The Anger Volcano: A Book About Anger for Kids" is for children who need a little bit of inspiration to control their temper. A valuable resource for parents, counsellors, youth workers and teachers, it builds on the principles of neuroplasticity. "The Anger Volcano" encourages kids to use simple rhymes and exercises to train their brain, so that anger explosions can become a thing of the past.

About the author
Amanda Greenslade is an Australian writer and a parent with multiple family members in the syndrome mix of ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder - Asperger's and Sensory Processing Disorder (Sensory Integration Dysfunction). Her journey led her to create 'The Anger Volcano', a book for children who need some help managing their frustration and anger.

About the project
We created the print layout and cover design for the print edition, which was released via print-on-demand. We also created the ebook version to be distributed through Kindle Select.

About the project
You, Kifaru and the Mud Problem is our Managing Director, Amanda Greenslade's, second children's book. It is an enhanced interactive epub where users can input a child's name so they become the hero of the story. This ebook was illustrated and designed entirely for tablets, with no print edition, hence it is the ideal size and layout for tablet-reading. It was written and designed by Amanda Greenslade, illustrated by Caitlin Morgan and published by Australian eBook Publisher. We released the enhanced edition on Apple and the non-enhanced edition on Google Play, Kobo and Amazon.

Over a year later the book that had been designed for ebook was laid out for print. Some design elements needed to be reworked to fit the altered format, which was square, as opposed to the ebook's iPad-sized design.

About the project
Myra and the Magic Motorcycle is Amanda Greenslade's, the director of Australian eBook Publisher, debut children's book. After the book was written Amanda coordinated the editing and the illustrations, which were done digitally by Glen Holman.

Amanda then arranged audio narration recording, purchased sound effects, did the printed book design layout, designed the cover, designed the non-enhanced and enhanced ebook editions and coordinated publishing. Amanda and the team at Electrify! Australian Book Marketing are currently still working on the marketing for Myra, on a shoestring budget.

Unlike most children's books that are designed for print and then the ebook edition may not work very well at e-reader or tablet size, we started with the iPad dimensions in mind. We asked ourselves what was the best way to present a children's book on the iPad. We later made the print edition.

For more on these ebook design decisions, you may be interested in the video recorded by Amanda here.

Australian eBook Publisher used Smashwords to convert this Word document to ePub. It was supposed to be distributed through Apple, Sony etc. but I only ended up finding it on Apple. I converted it to HTML with Dreamweaver to post it on Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing. This was my first ebook project and was just testing the Smashwords and HTML to Kindle options, which are fine for short, non-complex texts, but time-consuming. With all my knowledge of 'proper' ebook conversion now, I'd prefer to do it properly using Adobe InDesign and coding with XHTML and CSS.

Book Information

This essay explores the reason why fantasy computer games continue to use sexist stereotypes of women including scantily-clad temptresses, Amazonian warrior-princesses and evil witches. It draws a parallel between an obscure erotic fantasy novel by Lin Carter called Tara of the Twilight and the techniques still being used in modern fantasy story-telling.
