Update #8

We made it, we made it!! --Again!!

3 comments

We did it again! With a mere 4 hours left we made our second goal and now the ebook of the second book will be FREE to almost all 258 of you backers!

I am just overwhelmed at your support — not just in money but in sharing it with your friends, family and colleagues. I have learned so much by crowd-source funding this book that will make it better. The biggest piece is that children with visual impairments — not just babies — will love the high contrast images. To that end, I will likely change the title from Dark & Light: A love story for babies to Dark & Light: A love story in black and white.

But I wouldn't have been able to change the title to anything if it wasn't going to be a book! Thank you, thank you, thank you for making this project a reality — two times over — and for helping my family start a new chapter in our lives. We feel truly blessed — which is not something I imagined being able to say two years ago. 

Thank you for sharing your love, compassion and excitement!

      Blessings come in strange places Shasta, and what looked like a terrible tragedy has made you into an advocate for those with disabilities and actually has encouraged you to do something that will benefit not only Malachi, but others as well! I'm very proud of you, and send you my love and many hugs!

    Wow. OK, you can have the ORIGINAL storyboard that I created when I first thought of this book. It's not fancy, but imagine how much Margaret Wise Brown's notes for Goodnight Moon would be worth today? Plus all the above swag.

    Not impressed with the storyboard? OK, name your reward. Want me to write, design and print a simple board book about your family? Done. Want me to show you start to finish how I created my masterpiece? Sure. Want me to teach my kids that your name is actually the word for a common household item? Why not. Want me to be your slave for a day? Well... umm... probably not. But let's talk!
