A collection of six short stories filled with color and imagination that will surely make you smile!

About this project

First and foremost a huge THANK YOU for checking out my Kickstarter page!

Meet the characters! 

A little about me... 

Hi! I'm Tanya and I’m an artist/author. Random ideas are always flowing through my head making it difficult for me to focus on just one....focus... focus...  

What is Buttons, Kings, and Strange Little Things?

Oh right, "Buttons, Kings, and Strange Little Things" is a collection of six short stories, all written in rhyme. Each page is an original painting which will then be professionally scanned and digitally enhanced! 

What does it look like? 

The book will be 11"x14" and it will have 100-110 beautifully printed full color pages with a hardcover. Being part of this Kickstarter means you are also part of the making of "Buttons, Kings, and Strange Little Things". I will post frequent updates, with pictures and text, and will greatly appreciate your feedback!  

(The text will eventually be inside the images... have to find the perfect font!)

What's the money for?

I need to raise $7000 for productions costs. $5000 will go towards printing to give you the BEST quality book. $500-$1000 will go towards shipping. $300 will go towards prints, and another $300 towards my art supplies. 

Why Kickstarter?

Working on this book for about six months now, I decided to self publish to have full control of the final product. Kickstarter is a great opportunity for artists/ developers to make ideas come to life! Because of you my idea will come to life.

Risks and challenges

Since a challenge can't always be predicted, I'm prepared to handle all situations and make sure that everyone receives their pledges. I already made most of the pages, stories, and illustrations, so as long as the printing company stays on schedule, there should be no issues. No matter what, I'm going to keep all of my backers in the loop 100% of the time!
