Once upon a time there was a man
Who wrote a story for his god daughter
She loved the story and he promised to publish it one day
Although it's been 16 years since he wrote the story
It's never too late to honor a promise and realize a dream


It's been a long journey to get this story published and, like Imani, I've learned many lessons along the way.

It's the right time to share The Tale of Imani the Bunny.

All that's missing is your support!

ABOUT THE BUDGET: The funds for this project ($2931) will go towards publishing the first run of books for backers, paying the author and illustrator, and covering fees from Kickstarter and Amazon.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Tony Lamair Burks II is an Atlanta-based educator from Dothan, Alabama. He first learned the art and craft of public speaking and storytelling from his four grandparents in LA…Lower Alabama. An avid reader and master whistler, he plans to become a chef and own a “bed and brunch” when he retires from a career in education.


ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR: Luis Peres, a native of Portugal, has been drawing all his life but started his professional career in 1992 when a national software house hired him to work on the first Portuguese video game, called Gambys. He not only created the characters, but all the subsequent graphics, animations and 3D world for the video game. His work experience also includes  cartoons, character and mascot development for marketing campaigns, packaging, identity, greeting card art, book cover illustrations, and fantasy pictures. Since 2008, he has primarily focused on children's book work and illustrations for board games.

ABOUT THE TRANSLATOR:Jade Dickerson is not a native Spanish-speaker but rather a native North Carolinian. He lives and works in Greensboro where he teaches high school Spanish. This is his second translation for publication.

Risks and challenges

As a career educator, I have spent two decades serving thousands of students of all ages. I am quite familiar with the risks and challenges associated with completing short- and long-term projects.

It is impossible to predict every risk and challenge associated with publishing a children’s book. I am prepared; however, to draw on my experiences writing and publishing other works to ensure that all backers receive the rewards promised for their pledges.

The illustrator and translator are onboard and have begun their work. The book has been accepted by a publishing company (and I have identified another company, just in case).

Along the way, I will keep the backers of The Tale of Imani the Bunny informed about our journey to make this dream a reality.
