This is all about getting the Second Edition of the Beginner's Guide and first chapter book into your hands.
Under the Overlook is the first of many chapter books in the Alphamals series. I have finished writing it and am currently working on the illustrations. A number of kids (ages 5-12) and their parents have read the book and they quite honestly, love it! They call the story "unique," "exciting," "awesome" and "full of great lessons." Having spent well over a year working on it, I can tell you that once you start reading, you won’t want to stop — you’ll want to read straight through to the end to find out what happens.
The Second Edition of the Beginner's guide will be more robust than ever! The wonderful thing about the Beginner's Guide is that it keeps evolving as the Alphamals do. Each edition has more information, more visuals, and more content. I’m changing up the character illustrations and updating the design. It's like a whole new book!
However, this isn't about buying a book or two, it's about investing in a universe of limitless possibilities.
As you decide which pledge is right for you and your children or grandchildren, remember that to get the most out of the Chapter Book, you really, really, really need to have the Beginner's Guide (1st or 2nd edition) as a reference. It contains a wealth of visuals and insights into each Alphamal that guarantees a rewarding, enriching experience for you and your young reader.
These two books spark young imaginations as they explore a fantastic world that is quite literally like nothing else they — or you — have ever encountered. I look forward to having you join the ever-growing community of Alphamals supporters. Your pledge and your help in spreading the word mean the world to me.
As of right now each book will be soft cover bound with the possibility to be hard cover. The Beginner's Guide will be printed in full color, while the chapter book will be printed in black and white with the possibility to become full color.
What is a meature? Think of it this way: Animals are to humans as meatures are to Alphamals. They’re basically the animals of the Alphamals’ world. This means the Alphamals can have pet meatures, encounter dangerous meatures, hunt meatures, etc.

Risks and challenges
As of right now I am one person writing, illustrating, and coordinating everything. Working full time and doing this on my free time can get crazy. But I love crazy and that is how I thrive.
The last project was delivered when promised. The backers and fans are the most important part of these projects. Without your support, there is no project, so I have to make you happy.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
