Stretch Goals have been determined!

Thank you all so much for supporting this meaningful project!!! I am amazed and excited by the potential this project holds! Please note that the following Stretch Goal Outcomes and rewards are stacked on the existing rewards!

1. For EVERY $1000 made on top of the initial goal, I will donate 50 books to local libraries, schools, and organizations supporting lgbtq+ children, youth, and families.  

2. Upon reaching $5000, EVERY backer, regardless of contribution amount, will receive a set of Dragon H stickers with their book! These stickers will have original art of Dragon H before and after her gender transition!  

3. Upon reaching $6000, I will be able to set up a website for this book...which can further act as a central resource page to steer folks towards other support organizations, communities, counselling services, etc.

The Secret Wish of Dragon H manuscript has been submitted! The assisting publisher is on board! This project is a big green light, ready to go, go, go!  

 I'm so excited to be launching my first children's book, and the subject matter is near and dear to my heart. I've been witness to so many challenges in my closest circles that I had to take action. 

The Secret Wish of Dragon H is the result of that desire to help create a more accepting world for generations to come. It's a story about a very lovable, transgender dragon. Every page has lovingly hand-drawn illustrations, and the story is both hopeful and heartbreaking in all the places it needs to be.

As I mentioned in my video, there is a discussion guide included to assist parents and educators in having conversations about the feelings and experiences of Dragon H with their children. This discussion guide is aimed at children ages 8-12, but the story itself has a far broader range. Young children and adults alike can take delight in Dragon H's world!

  

Risks and challenges

I'm completely committed to getting "The Secret Wish of Dragon H" on shelves by the summer of 2017! My plan is to purchase a certain number of copies post-publication to stock on bookstore shelves. Regardless of the outcome of this campaign, I am fully committed to publishing this book. Providing this campaign is successful, I will send out signed copies to everyone who contributes CA$40 or more to anywhere on the planet!
