About

From left to right: Meo, Cleo, & Cat#2

The funds I'm raising will go towards the costs of researching, writing, illustrating, marketing and publishing the children's book "Meo, Cleo, & Cat #2". 

All three cats in the story are all real, and live with us today.  I will draw on the personalities of each of the cats to develop their characters as they endeavor to start a business, advertise, run the books, and collect the profit. 

In order to write a children's book that is educational, and teaches business concepts effectively, I plan on doing my research.  Even with a PhD in business, I don't assume that I know a thing about how to convey these concepts in a children's book; however, I'm an experienced writer and believe I have the skills to pull this off.  

I hope to have my sister illustrate the book, and my husband is very excited about helping to write it as well.

If this book is successful, we plan a whole series of adventures with Meo, Cleo, & Cat #2 as they tackle other life issues.  Future books may be aimed at different age groups based on the nature of the story.  I'd really appreciate your help, and thank you in advance.

Risks and challenges

This will be my first attempt at not only writing a children's book, but fiction of any kind, that is my biggest fear. But my husband Jeff & I have a really great idea, and three amazing cats that give us so much inspiration that we believe this book will be a best seller. I have experience publishing my own non-fiction, and I've helped a relative publish fiction, so I'm aware of the book publishing process. I work from home and have ample free time to devote to this project.
