About this project
Book is Completed – Project goal is to have printed books available for next Christmas!
I have had this book on Amazon as an ebook for Kindle for a few months. I have been so surprised at how popular it has become in such a short time, with a large quantity of downloads. I need some funds to get the book printed so that dads and moms will have this classic tale to read to their kids each Christmastime! My estimation and goal is that St Picklas will become an annual tradition, albeit a cult classic. Here’s your chance to help, and to receive a first edition, and first printing!
Here is a sample of the Christmas card you will receive with a pledge of $5 or more.
I love Christmas and my family is very over the top when it comes to celebrating and decorating for the holidays. I love the feelings, the smells, the tastes and the music and all of the amazing the decorations! The wonder of Christmas is amazing. St. Picklas has been a really fun project, I really tried to infuse those magical elements of Christmas into the illustrations. The video does not show the pages included with the text for the story.
Here is a sample of the pickle bottle sticker included with a pledge of $10 or more.
Ever since I was a little boy I've wanted to write and illustrate books and the basic idea of St. Picklas came to me in High School. It's taken me forever to actually make the book. I have other books that I've written and started to illustrate but this is my first complete project and I really hope I can get it off the ground in order for me to get some motivation to complete my other projects.
