The Author - Caleb is a creative and lively nine-year-old author who has an inspiring imagination, a passion for story, and an exceptional talent for expression.  He has a character of pure gold, and an extraordinarily kind heart.  He currently resides in Nashville with his family.  His dad, Jonathan Jackson, plays the role of Avery Barkley on ABC's hit show, Nashville. Caleb has already self-published one compilation storybook, and now he has a 15 chapter book ready to add illustrations.  

This Project - will make the incredible characters in Caleb's book come to life with illustrations! We have an excellent illustrator ready to move on this who is honored to help make this dream come true for Caleb.

All Monies - will go strictly toward the fees needed to commission illustrations for Caleb's book, and we have an attorney who will oversee the contract to make sure the project is completed to Caleb's satisfaction.

Risks and challenges

There are always risks and challenges that present themselves. The risk of working with a young artist can often be a change of focus in the young artist's life, making it difficult for the project to cross the finish line. However, Caleb has remained exceptionally focused with every step - from organizing the initial outline, to writing each chapter, to editing the story for continuity and creative impact, and now to designing the illustrations. He is, and has been, the motivating force behind this project for over a year. That attitude will be what makes this project successful.
