Inspiration

One of these things just doesn't fit in here...
One of these things just doesn't fit in here...

I've always wanted to write and illustrate, but it stayed on the back burner for a number of years. Fortunately, life provided some awesome inspiration in the form of three unique kids, who never fail to surprise. I'm excited to share this story with all of you!

The Story

The story focuses on an imaginative girl. Sometimes she feels like she doesn't fit in, and doesn't like the same things that her friends do. That's OK though, because she has some unique traits and talents that make her an awesome kid!

This project is on the home stretch. The illustrations, text and layout are complete and converted to digital format. I’ve engaged with a great printer and distribution company, so the only thing left to do is print the book.  

That's where you come in! The goal is to raise the necessary funds to cover printing costs for a first run of hardcover books. Because setup is mostly complete, if this project fully funds, the plan is to print and ship out books in time for the upcoming holidays.

Stretch Goal

If $10,000.00 or more is raised, I will create an animated version of the eBook to really bring the story to life!

Shipping

As a thank you for supporting this project, I’m including shipping for all of our supporters in the U.S. I know that the shipping is probably priced high for Canada, but there was no way to separate Canada from the rest of the world. Sorry, eh?

 

Risks and challenges

The work for this project is on the home stretch. The illustrations, text and layout are complete and converted into digital format. I have engaged with a printer and distributor, so the only thing left to do is print and ship!
