About the Book

Jeremy's Quest to be the Best is a rhyming children's book that answers one of life's most important questions: Are you proud of me, Dad?

Follow Jeremy through his wild adventure to space and to the depths of the ocean as he tries to prove that he is worthy of love.

My Fundraising Goal

I am asking for your help to raise $4,000 which will allow me to print 500 copies of my book and get it out to the public. My hope is that this book's message will transform the way children see themselves and help cement the fact that they are incredibly valuable for who they are.

The Bigger Vision

This is my first children's book which is special! And I want the impact of this book to spread beyond it's readers. I have committed to donate all the profit from sales of this book to help families who live in the most remote places on earth get a copy of the book that most deeply impacted my own sense of value, the Bible. 

I will be partnering with goods friends of mine that work with Youth With A Mission who are hiking high into the mountains and jungles to tell them how loved and valuable they are through the stories in the Bible.

Details about the Book

The book will be a 8x10 inches, hardcover with 40 pages of colorful images and witty, rhyming verse. Printing and shipping can take up to 9 weeks after the order is completed. Estimated delivery is January 2017.

Age enjoyment level: 3–15 years old
Reading level: 7 years old

Risks and challenges

This is the first print job I have done with PrintNinja.com. They have lots of great reviews but there is possibility the printing could be less than satisfactory.

There are some color issues with CMYK printing (i.e. oversaturated colors) that I need to negotiate with the printers. I will be ordering a sample copy of my book before the big print run to check on the quality of my colors. This could delay delivery.
