TO ALL OUR WONDERFUL BACKERS & SUPPORTERS;
HAND ARTISTS-Did You See What They Said! is FINALLY done. Thank you all so much for your continued support & patience through this amazing journey of publishing a children's book!
It was truly an adventure for Steph & I as we were amateurs in this process, but with the assistance of Trisha & Fred at Small Batch Books (SBB), WE DID IT!
The reward books have been mailed out to Backers who donated $50 or more. We have tried to be diligent in checking our lists twice (or more), BUT if you have not received your reward PLEASE LET US KNOW ASAP. Most books have been mailed out in the past 2 weeks & should be in your mailbox no later than the week-end! [** Exceptions may be the Canadian addresses which were mailed from Canada last Fri (7/5)]. Jan & Steph continue to hand deliver to backers in the vicinity.
Feedback on the book from the Deaf Community, from family/friends & even strangers has been EXCELLENT!! Steph's artwork is fantastic & bright, enhanced by the designer at SBB, (Bhairavi), who used colorful backgrounds & borders to make the art pop!! Jan's story & the sign language elements lend to a better understanding of the deaf community & their place in our society.
Hand Artists is available on-line and in several bookstores in the Pioneer Valley & in the Northeast Kingdom in VT. If anyone wants more copies, please feel free to contact either of us through home emails: Sfirstname.lastname@example.org or Jemail@example.com. Cost is $18 plus tax in MA.
Jan & Steph are proud of this product & hope you feel it is a quality piece of work. We know you were instrumental in the production of this book & we can never say in words how much we appreciate everyone's encouragement.
We hope you enjoy Hand Artists to share with family, friends, schools, libraries & anyone who wants to be introduced to the Deaf community.
Jan & Steph
