I am raising funds quickly to launch my long awaited 1st book in the Monkey Brains Books series!

 http://monkeybrainsbooks.com/

My name is Karin H Blythe. I am an author, a speaker, a comic, a wife & mom of 3 and a grandma of 8 grandkids. I know from personal experience that reading empowers a child to reach their potential in spite of the child’s current circumstances. It is because of my own childhood struggles and victories that I am developing this series of children’s books.

Through Monkey Brains Books my sidekick, Mr. Bim and I will Boldly Ignite Minds!

We'll help kids find HUMOR and HOPE in the HARDSHIPS they face.  We will AWAKEN the ADVENTUREOUS spirit in every child.  We will give them TOOLS to TACKLE life’s TRIALS so they can TRIUMPH through WIT and WISDOM      

 What will these funds do?        

 I need to go to 3 huge writers conferences coming up.  I will get to learn from the best in the publishing world PLUS I will get to meet editors and literary agents face to face to pitch my project.  Your donation will help me get there without the dangers of hitchhiking or sleeping in the bushes. 
  • NYC in June BookExpo America, 
  • LA August Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.                
  • DALLAS in Sept American Christian Fiction Writers
