I've written a book about an owl that's afraid of the dark, but I need to raise some money to get it published. Can you help?

The idea for this book was hatched a year and a half ago while I was student teaching in Texas. As a kid, I was always afraid of the dark and, as I understand it, mine was not a unique phobia. Lots of kids get scared when the lights go out. The little owl in this story is just like every kid who's ever been afraid of the dark. But darkness gets a bad reputation. I think we need to see darkness in a new light. God created darkness, after all. He makes it, just like he makes light. And nighttime is actually a time that doesn't need to scare children. Just the opposite, in fact. Those bumps in the night aren't monsters intent on devouring children. They're natural sounds that play a part in the nighttime chorus that praises God before sunrise. That's what this book is about. 

And plus, who doesn't like a book about an owl? And a burrowing owl, no less!

(A word about funding: the funds collected (and we must meet the entire goal or the book doesn't get ANY of it) goes directly to pay for editing, layout, cover design, global distribution, e-book creation, and social media/web setup. I don't keep a cent.)
