We chose to publish through our own little press, Brigid's Hearth (Ellen--also an award winning sculptor-- has a blacksmith forge and Brigid is the patroness of blacksmiths), so that Ellen could retain all rights and control over her beautiful artwork. We hope you agree that publishing a 32 page case bound (library quality) 8.5 by 11 edition, with Ellen's amazing full color illustrations is a terrific investment
Here are the numbers:
To produce 200 case bound first editions we need $1,954.08
To produce 250 case bound first editions we need $2,034.85
To produce 500 case bound first editions we need $2,450.13
We'll also need to buy a block of ISBNs, EANs, UPCs, publicize. market, mail, etc. etc., and any additional contributions will help us tremendously in these areas.
We hope that you'll help us reach our goal and present you with a beautiful, memorable picture book .
