About this project

Hi! My name is Ali Hoskins. In 2011 my husband and I had our first son, Ojai and our lives were changed. We started a band heavily inspired by our son and our new found identity as parents. My husband and I would jam in our room with Ojai and one day 'Turtle!' was born! We wrote and recorded the whole song in one day and Ojai loved it!

The story is about a turtle who likes to go different places. Mostly places familiar to young kids. "in the backyard, in my bathtub, in the kitchen, on my front porch... ect." I decided to turn it into a book so my children and others could enjoy it a different way. At bedtime, a book is better for winding down than a fast pop punk song!

Right now, the book is at a halt because of finances. I have an illustrator ready and have a self publishing website in mind. the funds will be spent on Publishing, Illustration, ISBN#, Marketing and Promotion. Every little bit helps and is so so appreciated! I can't wait until 'Turtle!' can be read to your little ones too!

Thank you!

Feel free is message me with questions or concerns! To the right of the screen you'll see a 'message' button.

Risks and challenges

Potential obstacles may include not finishing the book as soon as I had hoped. I estimate by the end of this year, but you never know what may happen. If for some reason it takes longer than expected, I will post it to this Kickstarter site. Wish me luck!
