About

Ok... will it cost my soul to get something soo bragaliciously different?

Yes... but we think is a small price to pay (especially if your soul is worth $20 including shipping):

Ok... but what if the people in the video were perfectly human looking androids... what have others said?

What is the first book like (the one I will get)?

It's about 100 pages and 8x11 inches. It combines glossy full color photography (think a coffee table book), narrative text and a hi-fi soundtrack (like a movie's soundtrack) to create a one-of-a-kind, immersive storytelling experience. 

You will be able to access the soundtrack through a. website URL that plays it on your smartphone or computer or b. a phone number for older phones.

The first story is inspiration and a sequel in the "life" of Sleeping Beauty where she magically loses her fear of death. Both men and women of different ages have described it to be enlightening.

Future stories will cover a variety of fiction and non-fiction genres.  We're raising money to lower the cost of publishing for these first edition, multi-sensory books.

Ok... you know, it's been a slow day.... could I see some smiling faces?

A children's narrated book for adults? Wha-what?

Think about it. There's many delightful adult experiences that have an equivalent for children. It is odd there's no narrated, beautifully imaged books for adults. Yes, it's not easy to be a grown-up but we're about to make it easier. If there's circus for them, and Cirque du Soleil for us, "A Movie in a Book" is for the child in you. Or for the adult in every child.

However, technically, it's different from a typical children's narrated book - it uses high-resolution photography instead of childish illustrations to inspire the imagination, and instead of a tiny-sounding low-fi embedded sound device in children's book, you'll hear a hi-fi soundtrack through your phone (using a phone number) or through smartphone/computer (through a website). The stories are also more refined, daring and encompass themes geared towards an adult audience (e.g., life and death).

How does Kickstarter work?

Think of it as preordering. But it's all-or-none. If we hit the target ($6,000), the credit cards are charged, the book is printed and sent to all of our supporters. If we don't, all orders are cancelled and the book is not printed.
