About

This is a project that is near and dear to my heart. Niku the dragon is a story I wrote after my son, Joey was in the NICU at the hospital. Only a few short months later a family member also saw her son be placed in the NICU.  My son and my family member's son are both now over a year old and happy/healthy babies.  It took some time but my vision of a story is now complete. 

This book is a children's book that is aimed to tell children the battle that a baby in the NICU must go through before being discharged into the loving arms of their family. A story like this is also a great way to tell siblings that are younger just what their brother or sister may be going through when they are in the hospital at such a young age but in the eyes of a child, fighting a dragon. I see this book as a gift you can order if a child is in the NICU as well as a gift that is picked up in the hospital gift shop to ease the minds of loved ones. Someone close to you or even you yourself may have been touched by the NICU experience. This is the time to open awareness to the near 500,000 babies that pass those doors every year, all through a story of bravery, courage, and strength. 

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenger for this project is finances. My wife and I are a young couple living with a young child. Unfortunately to self publish a book it costs a substantial sum of money. That is money that we can't put up at this moment. The project is written, it just needs to get into the hands of a wonderful publisher. A contract from a publisher is already written. Once the funds are procured the project will begin and the book will be underway towards being published.
