About

HOWDY! I'm Charlene, a San Diego based artist with a dream to publish my first children's book "Howdy Joey!" Inspired by the loving nature and spirit of our family dog, as well as the American Southwest; I wanted to tell a story about hard-work, adventure and silly old western critters!

ABOUT THE BOOK:

With beautiful hand painted watercolor illustrations, this book tells the story of Joey, a young dog who dreams of becoming a law-man in his old west town. With the guidance of his friend Sheriff Zoey, Joey learns learns how to be a leader, using his kind spirit and friendliness to make his town a wonderful place to be! I would love to continue the series by showing Joey's journey through the west, visiting historical sites and national parks and exciting kids about the real places they can visit!

 "Howdy Joey!" Is my first children's book, the story itself is complete and I am working on final illustrations, though I've left room for some extra "Deputies" (See rewards belows!)

Planned ship date for books & rewards is early November 2018

REWARDS:

HELP BRING THIS OLD WEST DOG TO LIFE!

Your help with this Kickstarter will fully fund the costs for a first run of 250 copies, publication, shipping and rewards. Exceeding my $4000 goal will help fund additional copies, as well as unlock special rewards if possible!

Please help this project's success by sharing with your friends & family!

Risks and challenges

This will be my second Kickstarter, so I understand what can arise with a campaign! I have planned my materials and goals ahead of time to make sure things run as smooth as possible.

Please note that rewards and special offers will only be fulfilled if project reached full goal.
