My biggest project yet!
The Chuck Book will be a hardcover 8”x10”, 56 page, fully illustrated, ABC style storybook for all ages!
It’s not your standard ABC book… it’s so much more! Each spread tells a fun, 6 line story that rhymes, and uses multiple words based on the letter of the page for kids to learn slightly more advanced words like “Alluring”, “Emerges”, and “Radiant”!
Each spread features Chuck and a couple of his Instagram pals to help illustrate the story! The book is loaded with a variety of animals and stands out from the rest because while you’re reading you will be able to search for Instagram pages such as Archie, a cat-lebrity from New York, a rescue raccoon named Jonathon, a Chicago based Siberian husky named Lando, an aspiring mini pig model named Rainbow, and so many more! Sixty-one friendly faces you’ll be able to find and follow!
This will be my second self-published children’s book and I've worked for almost two years to make sure this one stands out from the rest!
There has been a lot of time and energy put into rhyming the story, using as many A, B, C words per page of the story to intrigue the readers, into “casting” real life characters so you’ll be able to find the real Archie, the real Lando, the real Jonathon, etc.! Also, A LOT has been put into the detail of the illustrations on each of the pages and making the characters resemble themselves, and all the other parts that go into creating a masterpiece!
I LOVE THIS PROJECT!
And I can’t wait ‘til you can love it too!
To get 1,000 hardcover copies published and printed!
ULTIMATE GOAL: 3,000+ hardcover copies published and printed!
In order for this to become a reality, we need your help! To get 1,000 copies printed we need to raise a minimum of $6,500 for publishing and printing costs. Some of the money raised will also be used to create the awesome rewards you will receive for donating, such as stickers, buttons, tote bags, and will help with shipping costs, etc.
If we can raise $12,000+ we will be able to print 3,000+ hardcover copies of The Chuck Book!! #UltimateGoal
I plan to work with the same company I did with my first book, Mascot Books, to ensure a great quality outcome!
Will you be part of helping make this book come to life??
Please share to your pages and consider donating to help out!
Thank you so much!!

P.s. Feel free to visit Chuck’s Facebook or Instagram pages to see more of his goofy personality and see why I was inspired to write and illustrate a book about him!
Also find my pages on Facebook and Instagram to see sneak peeks of some of the pages and progress work! @vzcreativeco
Risks and challenges
The Chuck Book is still in progress but will be done very soon!
I would guesstimate that it's about 85% done at this time and I'm still working hard to finish it! I will be posting updates on different platforms to share with everyone the progress of its completion.
The only challenge I would say will be raising the funds. I've done this once before with my first Kickstarter project to publish my first children's book, A Great White Christmas, so I know the process and what to expect along the way!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
