About this project
Bodies of Water
Bodies of Water is a children’s book, written by myself, Daniel Patrick Helmstetter, and illustrated by Box Brown.
It is the story of a boy named Timothy, and a snowflake named Sara. It’s a story about happiness, and loss, and ultimately a story about learning to live in the world exactly as it is.
It tackles the impossible topic of death, and does so in a way that parents will be not only comfortable, but also eager, to share it with their kids.
Though Bodies of Water is written for children, the depth of it will impact, and hopefully bring a bit of peace, to anyone of any age.
Shipping in time for Christmas!
Bodies of Water will be printed as a limited edition, first pressing, hardcover book. Each copy will be numbered and signed by me and the illustrator, Box Brown.
The price per book for this limited edition first pressing will be $25, and will include shipping to anywhere in the US .
The books will arrive in time Christmas 2011
Bodies of Water is completely done. It is fully written, fully illustrated, and set to go the printer. Your support will act as a pre-sale, with funds going directly towards the cost of printing and shipping the limited edition first pressing of the book.
A contribution of $25 will get you 1 book, $50 will get you 2 books, and so on and so forth. Price includes shipping to the US. Books will arrive in time for Christmas 2011.
Please add an additional $10 for international shipping.
If you are ordering from San Miguel De Allende, and would like to avoid the international shipping charge, I will hand deliver the book to you in the beginning of January 2012.
How Kickstarter Works (if you’ve never used it before)
Kickstarter is powered by a unique all-or-nothing funding method where projects must be fully-funded or no money changes hands.
During the course of the campaign, contributors will make a payment via credit card, processed securely through amazon.com payments.
If at the end of the campaign, the goal of $5,500 is met, your card will be charged for the amount you contributed, and your book, or books, will arrive in time for Christmas.
If at the end of the campaign, the goal is not met, your card will never be charged, no money will change hands, and the book will not be printed.
