Hello there!  I'm Megan Merz.  I'm an artist, and I want to share some of that art with you!

I work for Reagency Design making t-shirts, I show work in galleries, and I illustrate custom commissions. 

Several years ago, I wrote and illustrated this book, Just One More. It features a lemur named Lili, and her quest to hoard every kiwi she can get her paws on.   Her adventure doesn't quite go as she planned, and that makes it all the more fun to read about!

I've been giving copies of this book away to friends and family, but I'm almost out of them.  I'd like to use this Kickstarter to fund another print run of 120 books. While I'm preparing the books to be reprinted, I'd like to update the cover and do some retouching on the interior.  

For those who definitely want the book in time for the holidays, I have early bird pricing available.  See the rewards on the righthand side of the page to pick a what works for you!

I hope you'll join me in making this book a reality, and thank you so much for coming buy and checking this project out!

Risks and challenges

I've listed my goal as $1400.

$900 is to print the books, $140 is to cover fees, and the rest is a cushion in case there are issues with shipping or other incidentals.

I anticipate 2-5 days needed to retouch the book and do the new cover art, so I'm not terribly concerned on that front.

The main risk is a lack of funding, or a shipping delay. If everything goes smoothly, I will be able to get these books out in time for the holidays. I am going to order the early bird books as soon as those are fulfilled. Worst case scenario, I end up with more of my own stock if funding fails.
