I love stories. My children do also. Some time ago we were making up stories (which in this case is not a euphemism for “telling lies”). I came up with one about a ty robot that comes to life and escapes from his owner. The kids were fascinated and asked me to write a longer story based on this. I did and – further fuelled by their enthusiasm – it is turning into a book.
### Sugar the Robot and the race to save the Earth
Yes that’s the name. You can find out more about it at the book’s website: [crimperbooks.co.uk](http://www.crimperbooks.co.uk). You can also follow @crimperbooks or on the [Facebook page](http://www.facebook.com/crimperbooks).
As you know I’m a believer in freedom and supporter of Creative Commons so as well as being able to buy this book as a paperback or for Kindle you will also be able to download it in a variety of ebook formats under a Creative Commons By-SA Licence. That means you can get it for free, share it and copy it without penalty. There’s a few reasons behind that decision but I’ll talk about that more on the book website at a later date.
For me one of the best things about this project is that it will include drawings by my kids. I’m also going to open the site up somewhat to encourage others to contribute their own ideas of what the scenes from the book look like and even what if any future adventures the characters should get up to.
