About

Goldy Girl and her Curls - Multiracial Family Book Series

$615

19

Multiracial families being represented in children's literature is a growing need that is unfortunately lacking at this present time. Goldy Girl and her Curls is the first book in a series of books that I have planned that will represent situations and scenarios that multiracial families, interracial parents, and being mixed kids go through. 

Part of Self-Publishing books includes purchasing ISBNs so that you own your rights to your books. I have done all the works of creating the art myself, writing it, figuring out the logistical channels of self-publishing, but what is currently holding me back at this time is purchasing the ISBNs which are must. 

There is a 10 pack of them available that would be needed because each type needs its own ISBN. This means the hard cover, soft cover, e-book, etc all need their own. I also plan to do a Spanish Edition. The 10 pack for $295 (before taxes) is what I am hoping to use the bulk of this money for.  

The rest is to help purchase the books for the rewards and for taxes and fees. 

If I reach my goal and go over the excess will be used to either purchase more ISBNs, pay for some advertising, purchase books to send to bloggers, and/or sell at fairs. It depends on how much it goes over (if it does.)   

Risks and challenges

The first of the series is already complete and awaiting my approval through Amazon's Createspace. I want to publish it through IngramSpark as well, but I am unable to proceed with them until I have my own ISBN.

At this point I cannot think of other risks/challenges.
