About

I’ve written a fun and exciting children’s story-poem about a little coconut who is blown from a tree and goes on an exciting adventure to find a home. I’ve found a wonderful illustrator who captures the story of Cocoo the Coconut with light and fanciful watercolors. I was able to pay for the first illustration, but I don’t have enough money to pay for the entire book to be illustrated. I am seeking help from you so that we can bring Cocoo the Coconut to life! 

Watch the video to see the first illustration and to hear the story!

I have created a number of rewards for those of you who are willing to help at different levels. You can earn everything from a real coconut postcard from Hawaii to a signed First Edition copy of Cocoo the Coconut, plus e-copies, mentions in the acknowledgements and shoutouts on my Facebook and my website at ChrisDamitio.com

My intention is to self-publish the book - I’ve published several adult books this way and am familiar with the process. My expectation is to have the ebook complete by February of 2018 and the print version complete by April 2018. If a publisher should come along and choose to option the book, these dates will most likely shift as the traditional publishing process takes longer. 

Risks and challenges

My illustrator has agreed to the project, but if the situation changes, I will need to find a different illustrator. I see this as the biggest risk - luckily, I know several other illustrators who can handle the challenge - I just really like the work this one does. If the project is funded quick enough, I can lock her in.
