This is a tough thing to post, but I want to be sure my energies are utilized the best they can be. We were on day 6 of the campaign and at 17%. In order for this to succeed in reaching the goal I chose, I should have been over 30%. So I chose to stop the All or Nothing Kickstarter and relaunch it here with a better goal and more flexibility.
WAIT! HEAR ME OUT!
That isn’t a bad thing, really.
In fact, it just means I’m going to go about this another way. I wanted the Kickstarter so I could get a decent print run but that’s not the only way to publish a book.
Instead, I relaunched this on Indigogo. Any funds I raise will cover your rewards and printing in a smaller quantity. The good news about this, with the nature of my plan, is there will be no risk to either you or me. Those who order a book, will get their books. No matter how much is raised.
We also won’t have to wait as long for delivery of the books.
I have some news to share! First, my new picture book, Caitie the Caterpillar was just released from Guardian Angel Publishing. This is my fourth picture book with GAP and I can’t wait to share it with all of you. Here’s a little more about the book:
Caitie the Caterpillar Publisher: Guardian Angel Publishing ISBN: 9781616337513 1616337516
Blurb: It is a beautiful day for milkweed, until Caitie the Caterpillar runs into Swift Sparrow. Soon, Caitie and her new friend Alexander Ant, must find a way to escape the hungry bird. As Caitie faces Swift Sparrow and her own fears, she begins the process of a beautiful transformation. My second piece of news is my recent visit to Ringing Rocks Elementary School. It was a beautiful school with enthusiastic first graders.
We read Teresa’s Shadow and discussed the writing process. I asked the question, “How long do you think it took me to write Teresa’s Shadow?” My favorite answer was, “10 minutes!”
After we read Teresa’s Shadow we also talked about how shadows are made and even created some of our own shadows with our hands. It was a fun day and everyone was extremely welcoming at the school. As an added treat,I did a book reveal of Caitie the Caterpillar since it was just released. They were so excited to be the first group of children to see the new book.
