THE STORY: SAROJA'S QUEST is the story of Peppa, an inquisitive and sassy tongued ten-year-old girl with a love for books and adventure. When Peppa’s grandfather takes ill, her world becomes unhinged, so her Mama makes arrangements for Peppa to work at the local market.

In a shop full of old mysteries, she finds a book which hides magical secrets and one real live flower fairy! Her name is Saroja. The fairy is on a quest to find the sacred Lotus flower and return it to her Enchanted Land before her magical world is destroyed. When Peppa learns the Lotus has the gift of healing she has a difficult choice - to help her new found friend save her home or use the last of its power to cure her grandfather.

This is a story of compassion, bravery, and healing as Peppa and Saroja create a special bond that will last many lifetimes.

Saroja's Quest is a prose book with beautiful illustrations, both painted and sketched by Joyceline Furniss. This is the start of a series I am creating, and I am so excited for you to be a part of bringing this world to life.

A glimpse into the book

I’m doing this Kickstarter for SAROJA'S QUEST to offer you a limited and special edition Hardcover which will not be available in stores, and you'll receive it long before the retail paperback edition is available. In addition to the storybook, I also want to offer fun rewards, including a Coloring & Activity Book, Fairy Picks, hand crafted Fairy Wands, original art and more.

Your preorders for Saroja's quest will help raise money for the printing of the book and all merchandise. The book has already been written, and Joyce and I are at the final stages of illustration and design, ready to produce a physical book. This will be my first published book, I am over the moon to share it with you!

Risks and challenges

The good news is, the book is complete with all art and design finished and ready to be enjoyed so there will be no hold up with production! The only risk is the printing, which will be done overseas, and a possible delay when they ship me the book. This is my first book but I understand from our distributor this is extremely rare.
