About this project

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

The ‘Pineapple Princess’ is a picture book for children. The book is a story of innocence and identity. It relates the story of an innocent child born of love who wanders into a drab and angry land, the Yellow Kingdom, where human failings prevail and her identity is threatened by envy and jealousy. In the end, she is whooshed back into the arms of her loving mother by the gift of love embodied in the form of rich rain that simultaneously transforms the Yellow Kingdom into the one of bloom and color. With this the pale creatures are transformed, becoming aware of their humanity.

(You will notice the blog is inactive at the present. It is only because I have just had a baby girl. I shall continue writing as soon as possible as it is my passion. Once I shall resume the writting of the new chapters of my middle grade novel ‘Josephine and the Sage’ the blog will become active. This novel is also my next project. I intend to post some new illustrations to the ‘Pineapple Princess’ story as well as the ‘Thank you’ notes to those who helped us.)

We would like to raise $1,500 to fully illustrate the book. It will take one week to execute the illustrations.

REWARDS

As a special thank you for helping us to raise the funds for this project we are offering:

A special recognition ‘Thank you’ note on our children stories web blog for a plegde of  $10 and less.

A special recognition ‘Thank you’ note on our children stories web blog and a PDF file of the illustrated book itself for a pledge of $35 and more.

A special recognition ‘Thank you’ note on our children stories web blog and a PDF file of the illustrated book itself and a printed cover of the book autographed by the author for a pledge of $90 or more.

(The second step will be publishing of the book in print and as an e-book and listing the ebook on Amazon's Kindle store, Apple's iBook store, and Barnes & Noble's Nook store. If we succede with illustrating the picture book, this next step is going to cost approximately $500 to $1200. I am now considering the best venue to do this. After we succeed publishing the book in print, anyone who will pledge $500 or more will receive  a personal dedication in the book itself and the autographed printed book itself in addition to all of the rewards listed above.)

Please, excuse the quality and length of my video, as I created it all alone with my telephone while following my little girl at play. You could say that all the tools and help I had was my creative mind.
