About

Hi! My name is Gia Scott-Harris and I thank you for taking the time to read about my campaign. The campaign is for the final production of my very first children’s book titled “I Don’t Know What I Can Do!” Written by myself and illustrated by the great Cbabi Bayoc. “I Don’t Know What I Can Do!” is the story of young Ethan Tyson and his quest to find his true talent. The book has been edited, the illustrations are complete. Now I need your help to get this wonderful book into the hands of children and children at heart. Before you decide to fund this campaign, I am sure you would like to know more about me as well as more about the book. Let me tell you all about this wonderful book.

About the story...

The story opens with a full classroom scene. Mrs. Petty reminds the students that the talent show is Friday. Ethan Tyson is harried by this announcement and begins to ponder over what is his talent.

During the day and well into the night Ethan Tyson explores the talents of his classmates and the skills that they possess. 

"Candace can sing. She is always on key. Amber can draw the best monkey."
"Candace can sing. She is always on key. Amber can draw the best monkey."

 

"Hunter can dance. Chris can play ball."
"Hunter can dance. Chris can play ball."

 

"I can't do anything at all!"
"I can't do anything at all!"

Does Ethan Tyson have talent? Will he ever find out what his talent is? What is the meaning of life? These questions, well not the last one, will all be answered when you read this wonderful story.

The Illustrator extraordinaire...

Cbabi Bayoc of Saint Louise, MO brought the story to life. Cbabi and I worked tirelessly to ensure that the illustrations spoke directly to the story. He avoided anonymity at all costs. Painting a clear picture (pun intended) was of upmost importance.

The book is comprised of pictures of 21 acrylic paintings. All of the classmates will ultimately be included in their own story as this book is the beginning of a series. Their talents are unique and their personas leap off of the page. 

Why support this campaign?

Buy supporting this campaign you will receive an awesome reward. Your pledge to this campaign will finance many different expenses. Printing, manufacturing, publishing and shipping costs as well as marketing just to name a few. You will also support the next book in the series. Each of the children pictured in the book will have own story. They will tackle such issues as bullying, self-confidence, celebrating differences and much more. 

Though this is my first children’s book it is not amateur. Cbabi and I took great care to define all the details in the book. This fully illustrated 24 page book is hard work in living color. The book is crisp and the story is well defined for both the young and the young at heart. Children are celebrated and encouraged in the book. 

Why does this book stand out?

In the book Ethan Tyson  celebrates his friend's and their talents and that is more than okay. However, when it comes to his talent he consistently convinces himself that he does not have talent. With a little  help from his teachers and friend Ethan Tyson finds the answer he seeks. The book teaches children applaud others and remember to applaud yourself. We all can do great things.

Risks and challenges

Thankfully, all of the illustrations and editing for this project is 100% complete. The formatting for this project is almost 90% complete, and I plan to publish with a well-respected book manufacturer. As of now, our hope is to have the physical books in hand by January 2018 if the project is successfully funded. This will allow plenty of time to make sure we can deliver the most polished project possible.

This being said, there is always the possibility of printing or shipping being delayed due to unforeseen circumstances. I am prepared to keep all of our backers up to date if unexpected delays may arise
