A Message From The Author!
Hi, I'm Catherine and I'm the author of Flora's Lost Hop.
I am truly heart-struck and send out huge thanks to all of you who have contributed.
Flora has been hopping with glee through each goal from our first day forward.
She and I began this Kickstarter project 3 weeks ago, and we're in the final stretch.
"Yes, Flora...we can make it. We'll sure try." Flora's jumping up and down again.
In this last update, I thought I'd write to you not just to say thanks, but to share some
thoughts. I often wonder why an author chooses to write what they do and why.
What is it that inspires a good story?
Flora's Lost Hop began as a news story about eavesdropping. Secrets just seem too irresistible not to overhear, but when a President of a powerful country does it, it makes the news. While everyone has their opinions on that, the concept of stealing someone's secrets intrigued me.
And so, thinking of a character who could teach children [and a few grownups] that eavesdropping's just not very cool - Flora was born.
That's really how the story started. As soon as Flora found me on the page, she really had a lot to tell me. And it wasn't long after that, that I met Alan Aldridge.
Alan's drawings of Flora and her friends are magical.
I hope we meet our goal so we can both share this project with you.
Please share this link with your friends and let them know you're a contributor to Flora's Lost Hop.
Thank you for pushing us closer to the finish line. We're almost there!
Love & Peace,
