About

Love Love Bakery: A Wild Home For All celebrates bakeries and coffee shops as gathering places for all.

I have always loved a mean latte in a cozy cafe. And I’ve seen you grab your mocha and muffin before work, settle in for a three-hour paper writing session on a Tuesday night, and shuffle in on Saturday for a golden latte with the crossword.

Many of us are starting to bring our kids, our nieces and nephews, our dogs and cats to the shop. I wrote this story as a way of passing on the gift of these open doors. A way of saying, “You’re welcome here, too.”

The Book

Love Love Bakery: A Wild Home for All is about a day in the life of a bakery and coffee shop. It is inspired by Jane & John Dough in Tomball, Texas—  where the bread is artisanal and the coffee is strong.

In the story, you get to: 

  • Meet the bakers, Jane and John 
  • Learn about sourdough and wild yeast 
  • See Jane’s gift for connecting people 
  • Watch John put time and attention into baking 
  • Laugh at silly puns 
  • Meet the regulars
  • Get a sense of the life lived in the kitchen and café where people are eating, talking, and doing good work.

But once everyone’s inside, there is:

  • Calamity! 
  • Spilled coffee! 
  • Biscuits flying! 
  • Babies crying! 
  • Drink orders switched! 
  • Cakes falling!
  • Even worse puns!

 There’s magic. And mayhem. And a moment for remembering that when you fling your doors wide open, we all rise.

Throughout the book, readers will learn the language of these places. Words like:

  • Batter and dough
  • Brioche 
  • Espresso 
  • Chai 
  • Barista 
  • First and second bread rise 
  • Avocado toast (ha!)

And in the back, there are two recipes to inspire little bakers.

Author

I’m Sara Triana Mitchell. I’m a writer, editor, and mother in the Houston area. Writing is my favorite thing to do. I do it every day.

I also love to cook, be outside, look at art, and paint with my daughters. I am a follower of Jesus, a bleeding heart, and a big fan of listening and dialogue. I’m the great-granddaughter of Mexican and Finnish immigrants and the daughter of two Marines. I wrestle with big ideas and small decisions and often find myself “in-between” many areas of life, culture, and faith.

Illustrator

H2 Alaska is an emerging artist from Tomball, Texas. Her favorite medium is every medium. H2, also known as Hayley Haynes, wears many hats—one of which is a steampunk-inspired top hat that she wears on weekends working at the Texas Ren Fest. She teaches movement and woodworking at Great Oak School. She will illustrate the book with pen and watercolor. 

This is her first book to illustrate. Yay!

Designer

Sarah Dossey and her husband reside with their multi-dog family in Austin, where she is a freelance calligrapher and designer by day and a banjo-wielding, electro-pop enigma by night. She will be hand-lettering the title and several quotes for the book and merchandise.

Sarah is one of my favorite people to work with so I’m stoked she is involved with this project. Unfortunately, she broke her arm at the beginning of November so we’ll have to wait until she heals before we see her design for Love Love Bakery. Oh, the suspense!

Publisher

Lucid Books in Magnolia, Texas, is my publisher. Authors pay publication costs for things like formatting, cover design, and proofreading. In return, they get Lucid’s publishing experience and the profits from the sale of printed books. It’s a model called “partnership publishing.”

In the spirit of full disclosure, I work with Lucid as an editor for children’s books. I have been impressed with their professional, streamlined, and personal approach to each book they publish. Love Love Bakery will be in very capable hands.

Rewards

All backers will receive updates about the project and an invitation to the backers-only release party at Jane & John Dough in Spring 2018. It will be an ultra-fun night of music, books, food, coffee, and fist bumps.

Love Love Chai- hand-blended rooibos chai tea that I make myself. Backers can choose between tea bags and loose leaf. 

Bakery postcards— featuring illustrations from the book

 Love Love Bakery: A Wild Home For All— Backers who pledge under $100 will receive a paperback copy of the book in addition to other rewards. Backers who pledge $100 and up will receive a hardback in addition to other rewards. If we meet our first stretch goal, all paperbacks will be upgraded to a hardback. All books ordered through the Kickstarter will be signed.

Acknowledgements— Backers who pledge $100 and over will be thanked in the book.

 

Enamel camper mugs— Tiny and large sizes! We will design a tiny 4 or 5 ounce mug for kids and a larger mug for everyone else. Each mug will have an illustration and quote from the book.

Art Print— Featuring Sarah’s hand lettering and H2 Alaska’s illustration, this attractive art print will be printed on sturdy paper.

Illustrations— You, your dog, your cat, or your kid can be illustrated in the book. Would you like to be the first customer who walks in? Would your cat like to prance through the entire story? There’s a reward level for that.

Backers could receive a private book making party with H2 Alaska

Private classes and parties— Some backers will learn how to bake sourdough bread from a professional baker or craft the perfect macchiato from an experienced barista. Some will receive writing/editing sessions and tea parties! H2 Alaska is donating a book-making party!

Art— H2 Alaska will make three limited DOODLE editions of the book in which she will add one-of-a-kind art to every page. There are also original illustrations available at several reward levels.

The Campaign

I want to write a pile of books that are meaningful to me and to my readers. Traditionally or independently. And I want to create jobs for emerging artists and designers.

Traditional publishing can be tricky if you are writing a niche book like Love Love Bakery. There are gate keepers. Artists and independent musicians do not run into the same gatekeepers when it comes to creating and putting their work out into the world. They pull together the money they need to paint or sculpt or record. They hire the people they want and sell their work in venues that make sense for them. They are entrepreneurs.

I’m adopting that approach for my writing business.

This project has been a blast. Hiring an illustrator and a talented designer, brainstorming big ideas with my favorite people, and working with a local publishing team has been invigorating.

I don’t want to ask you to contribute again. My goal is to use this book to fund the next book. And then that will fund the one after that and so on.

Support Love Love Bakery. Support my writing business.

Book Tour

Coming to 18 cities near you in 2018: I will read the book at bakeries and coffee shops. Doesn’t that sound delicious? I can’t wait! These readings are a critical part of my marketing plan. That's why it's in the budget.

Budget

We need to raise $11,000 to publish, print, illustrate, design, edit, and market the book. We also have to pay for rewards, taxes, and a bunch of fees. Here's an approximate breakdown:

About a third goes to publication

A third goes to illustration, design, and editing

A quarter goes to printing and rewards

A tenth goes to marketing and book tour

The rest goes to taxes and fees. 

If we surpass our goal, we will set stretch goals that will allow us to buy more artwork for the book, upgrade all paperback rewards to hardcover, and print more books to get a better rate.

Q&A

What does Love Love mean?

Nothing! But it means a lot to me. 

In 2006, I started a business called Love Love Vintage. I sold vintage clothing online. I loved having a creative small business and I'm delighted to bring that name back.

Is this a pre-order?

Nope. This is a fundraiser to publish the book. However, at all but the first two levels, backers will receive at least one copy of the book.

Why can’t I see a preview of the book?

The book has been written and edited. Some illustrations have been made. But I need funding before I can pay the artists and the publisher. Artists constantly put themselves on the line for others. I don’t want my artists to start work until we are certain they are going to be paid. One of the best parts of making books this way is creating work for local artists.

When will the book be published?

April 2018 is the goal. All backers will be updated when we get an official release date. Backers will be the first to receive a book.

What’s the next book going to be about?

Mum’s the word, but I’ll definitely be using my undergraduate degree for it. :)

Where is Willa?

I am seeking representation for my young adult novel about Willa the teenage rockstar. If you're an agent, let's chat! You're going to love Willa!

What happens if we don't meet the Kickstarter goal?

A whole bunch of car washes! Just kidding. If we don't meet the goal, we don't get a single dollar. So we would have to come up with a new plan.

 

Risks and challenges

You will get your rewards! The day I send your rewards will be a day of celebration!

This is a low-risk project.

The text is finished.

Contracts with the illustrator, designer, and publisher have been signed.

Preliminary illustrations have begun and will be completed by January 1.

Lucid’s publication process typically takes around three months. The book should be in hand by early spring. All parties are very committed to the success and timeline of the book.
