About

I have written a children's picture book about a shape-shifting cat, and need to fund an illustrator and publishing costs.

Sasha is an indoor cat. He doesn't get to go outside, but sometimes sees all the fun animals outside and wants to play with them! So, one day, he starts thinking really hard about going outside, and *poof* is able to change his shape! Eventually he is able to figure out how to get outside, but realizes it's not as simple as it seems out there.

The book is about 50 words, and 32 pages total (28 pages of content). It is aimed at early readers, 3–5 or 6 years old.

Risks and challenges

Primarily, it needs illustrations. This is the largest obstacle to publication at this point; delays in finding an illustrator or getting illustrations finished will delay the publication. I already have a couple of potential illustrators interested, and so issues with this part of it should be relatively minimal.

I am publishing the book myself, first as an eBook with some small-run softcovers, so that part of it is already lined up (just needs capital and illustrations!). Follow-on publication, in hardcover or other options, will be dealt with separately.
