Joann and Jane: Who Made This Mess? A Children's Book

$3,907

100

Joann and Jane: Who Made This Mess? is a story about a little girl who woke up to a mess in her room, and her search to find out who did it! 

While being an elementary school teacher for the last decade, I have truly enjoyed storytelling! The love of storytelling has only grown with the addition of my two daughters! While discussing what we want to be when we grow up, I mentioned that I wanted to be an author. They asked why wasn't I? I didn't have an answer...but now I do! With the help of my amazing illustrator, Taylor McDaniel, we have created a fantastic story that will touch hearts, and inspire laughter in all who read it! Please help get this project into bookstores all across the country, and most importantly, into the hands of children! I want everyone to help Joann and Jane figure out the answer to their mystery! Come become one of the first members of the Joann and Jane Detective Agency!!

Risks and challenges

As we are working to complete this project, we are continuing to illustrate the final pieces of the book. Although there hasn't been any mishaps yet, there is always that possibility. But any issues will not delay the completion of the book all that much! Let's just wish Taylor all the greatest luck we can, and wish myself, Brandon T Mayes, great luck in completing our limited revising!
