How one little girl overcomes her bully in a surprising way and manages to show how compassion and friendship can save the day.

About this project

Around 12 years ago I wrote a story about a little girl who overcomes a bully without resorting to bullying herself. The story is loosely based on some of my experiences as a child. I am hoping that I can help young children to see that there is always a better way, a kinder way. 

I will be publishing this book with the help of a small publisher and I will need to cover the cost of marketing tools like; postcards, bookmarks, t-shirts and the like. There will also be the cost of printing the book in both soft and hardcover, plus formatting and reproducing the illustrations for both print and ebook layouts. In a nutshell the money will be used for, book production, publishing and distribution.

The story is written and the illustrations are done. Help me make the book a reality and together we can stand against bullying and maybe make a difference in one child's life.

Risks and challenges

As there may be some issues that can cause a delay in printing (maybe the artwork needs adjusting to fit the format), but I am ready to tackle any problems that arise. I am as eager as anyone to get this project completed and in bookstores and library's everywhere!
