First, thanks to all you cool penguins for liking the cd and the ebook!
This is so cool. We are #1 on lala.com Electronic music charts! Check it out! Also, you can listen to the WHOLE cd for free on this site. Click here.
Q. So what is Decoding Mimo?
A. Decoding Mimo is the name of a story and the name of a music cd. The cd is pretty cool because it goes along with the story. Every song has something to do with the story. What a cool idea I think. My family came up with it.
Q. Is your story published?
A. It is not published by a book publisher yet but might be some day. But it is copyrighted.
Q. So, did you write the Decoding Mimo ebook yourself?
A. No, I came up with the idea to do an adventure story about a spy kid, me. So CPG talked about it and my parents paid a professional children's writer to write the story. Me and the rest of my family worked on the story. Then the writer wrote a few pages and we made changes and over and over for 6 months. It was so much fun. But I didn't think we would ever get done. The professional children's writer is really good. The writer writes for very popular children's magazines and stuff. This story is really, really good. You will like it.
Oh, if you buy it you'll see it's called Decoding Mimo by Mimo. This means we could not use the real writers name so we said, cool lets just put Mimo on it! LOL. Same with the cd, it's by Mimo too but we had lots of help.
Q. Is the ebook just a story or what?
A. No, I made sure to hide lots of cool stuff in the ebook. You have to really dig to figure some stuff out. You know how much I like to make puzzle and stuff.
Q. Where does Decoding Mimo take place?
A. We wanted Mimo the spy kid to travel all over the world. So Mimo's adventures will happen in places in the world that YOU are. The first story takes place in Sydney Australia! I want to go there someday. Oh, as this story ends, you get to see where I am off to for my next adventure! ;-)
Q. If you had to call your book one genre what would it be? And also, would you consider giving Decoding Mimo away?
A. The Mimo stories are considered Spy Adventures. We would like to make a series of stories if everyone likes them. Yes, I will be giving away the ebook and some of the music for contests and stuff!
Q. Will the book and CD ever be in stores?
A. No, not unless something big happens! It could happen but not for a long time probably. But who knows.
Q. So you have another site out?
A. Yes, but it's not really ready yet. Some people have found it and I'm not hiding it. It will be more about Mimo stuff like the stories and music and other cool stuff. I might move the contest over to that site too.
Q. What are you going to do with all the money you are making?
A. Uh, I hate to disapoint you but I don't get ANY of the money. Boohoo. I just get an allowance. My parents paid money to get help on the ebook and the cd. So, we aren't rich. It's something we are doing as a hobby. I have a great family!
Q. So how long is the book?
A. Decoding Mimo is about 5,175 words long. And it's about 21 full typed pages. It's pretty long.
Q. How did you get the cd on iTunes.
A. We found a place that can put your music on all the online music stores. It cost money to do that. And then they charge us money from every song we sell.
Q. Why is it a "soundtrack"? I mean, aren't soundtracks for movies?
A. LOL! Yes. But we made up the idea of having music that goes along with a book. It makes the music more fun if you understand what the songs are about. Oh, there is a cool secret puzzle on one of the songs too! It is sooo cool. ;-)
Q. The songs are good. How come you don't give them away?
A. Thanks. We have a couple other people help us with the cd and had to pay them. This took a long time and my family spent money on all this stuff.
Q. Isn't Clubpenguingang.com supposed to be about Club Penguin Cheats?
A. Yes. It is. We always work hard to get the best cheats and get them out right away. But some people like some different things once in a while when nothing is happening on CP. We have a lot of good comments about that. But my new site will be more about other stuff.
Q. How did you make the cd?
A. Kinda like we made the story. We had some ideas for songs. Then we had help making them into songs. It was REALLY fun! We really got good at it. The music people that helped us are WAY good.We are already working on new stuff!
Q. What else are you working on?
A. Well, there's the other site. But if you read the ebook it gives a hint to what we are working on besides the next book and cd. It will be pretty cool it I hope. ;-)
We had lots of good ideas for Decoding Mimo but for the next story and cd we want YOUR ideas! I'll let you know when.
Do you have more questions?
