About this project

The Book:

This 2nd book in the series challenges Joshua with a decision. Should he get out of bed and experience whatever amazing adventure life brings him? This story is inspired by the idea of encouraging children not to hold on to things that comfort them at the expense of not pursuing future adventures. The writing of the story is rooted in family and basic in its structure. For example, there are 2-3 sentences per page in the early reader family format for children's books. The song's structure is meant to encourage easy memorization and fun music. With songs functioning as sub-stories to the main story, I think the songs will be great exercises for developmentally delayed children. More broadly, the story and the music are drafted to appeal to children and adults with a love of music and mystery, and there is a point to the story. 

The story is complete and prepared for its final editor review. We have pulled the original team together to develop another quality product. Yes! We got the band back together. We’ve also added new members to the team. Everyone involved in this project is committed, qualified, and creatively inspired. There is the inherent cost of publishing and marketing a book. The funds will be used for illustrations, book formatting, and ISBN expenses. Moreover, the music for this story will be mastered to enhance the quality of the experience. The funding will also be used for marketing efforts through social media and local library or school tours to bring awareness of the book into the world. Our bold stretch goals are focused on developing an interactive eBook or Application. These funds would also allow us to make the music available on platforms like it iTunes, YouTube, and other streaming channels. We will develop T-shirts and coloring books to help spread the message. “ Go where your song takes you.”

Risks and challenges

As I mentioned earlier, this book represents a continuance of “Joshua’s Amazing…. Series. I feel the learning gained producing and launching the first book can be effectively leveraged to launch this second book. This reduces the risk of not completing this project. The story is complete and a production plan is drafted. Our target launch date to Launch Joshua’s Amazing Adventures is November 2017.
