My ultimate goal is to break into children's illustration and any other venue that appreciates my love of dinosaurs, crocodiles, and all things ridiculous and MS-Paint-y. In order to start down that path, I'm planning to publish a short book, "Crocodile Life is Hard...and other observations" based on illustrations from my crocodile series which you can see on my website, www.bridgetgongol.com
The book is edited and ready to go and includes a lot of brand new material unseen on my website. It's 27 pages of crocodiles and dinosaurs, and of course it includes a happy ending. "Crocodile Life is Hard...and other observations" is a whimsical, silly, and ultimately sweet look at how life would be difficult for a crocodile. As a bonus, it's perfectly suitable for children as well as adults.
Curious as to how that adds up to $450? Here's the breakdown:
Self-publishing through create space, printing a run of 30 books will cost $250, which includes the expense of purchasing my own ISBN. Packaging and shipping via USPS to 30 addresses across the US equals the remaining $200.
Please help me take step one towards making my dream come true and fund my self-publishing project! Any funds in excess of my goal will be put towards additional publishing and marketing efforts.
Thanks for your time!
