Justice pon di Road has been two years in the making! I started it August 2011. I cannot believe I have gotten this far.
Since then, I have paid for: a really great editor, an illustrator to create fifteen full color illustrations, a proofreader, hired a graphic designer to do the design and layout (still owe him money!), a website designer and the cost of having five thousand promotional postcards made (a local company was having a fifty percent sale I couldn't pass that up!). Ok, I am on a mission.
I don't expect the public to finance the entire project! Now I need to have the book printed and then work on getting the word out about it and that's how I came to do a Kickstarter campaign.
The money raised on Kickstarter will be used to print the books, get a bookmark and poster designed & printed, pay my super fabulous video woman, get t-shirts and tote bags for rewards and create an ebook version. The more money I raise the more books I can have printed! I would LOVE to be able to print more than 1,500 for the first run.
I hope Justice pon di Road will make it into homes, classrooms and libraries around the world.
Your support toward this project would be greatly appreciated!!! Please SHARE the video!!! Thank you very much.
Risks and challenges
Distribution. I have the Bay Area and the rest of California covered. I need to develop a plan to make the book available to schools and libraries in other parts of the country. I would love for it to be made available in Jamaica too!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
