"What if in my world... Explore Maxwell's world of imagination, friendship and acceptance. What would your world be like?" 

Self-published by author illustrator Emily Doan, this book aims to explore acceptance and friendship between yourself and others in a fun and friendly way for children. Love and acceptance despite self doubt and differences is promoted in the book through cute and colourful characters.

 The 21cm x 21xm softcover book features a colouring in page within the interior of the front and back cover and has 32 full coloured illustrated pages.

After nearly two years of hard work the book is finally avaliable for pre-order through the kickstarter with other little rewards avaliable! After hours and hours of illustrating with watercolours and prisma coloured pencils, the designs came to life in these bright and colourful illustrations.

Risks and challenges

The challenges and risks with this project has been the time taken to write, design and illustrate every single page. Thankfully, the hardest part has been overcome and now I come to you in hopes to support the funding for making the book come to life!

I have already self-published before and have sold locally. https://emilydoanillustration.wordpress.com/events/

If you scroll down on the link above you can see my first ever book launch images, and in my portfolio some images of the first book itself!

Within the next few weeks the books will be printed for distribution and all backers $12+ will be the first to receive a digital or physical copy.
