Help "Mr. Mark" publish his first childrens book! The Broccoli Brothers circus is a zany coloring book/ Multimedia music DVD project!!!

About this project

Amazing things are starting to  happen in the garden as the Broccoli Brothers Circus begins.. This zany coloring book for kids of ages is packed with home grown goodness and a healthy dose of pop culture references and humor..

The Broccoli Brothers Circus is a multimedia project involving a series of crazy characters from the world of pop culture as applied to the vegetable kingdom . Including the Incredible Stalk, the Broccoli brothers band ,Dill Beard the Pickle Pirate, Captain Carrot, Sir Thomas Tomato , Monsieur Mustarde Verde and many more. Full of puns and tons of fun these adventures will captivate and inspire kids to like veggies. This book is homegrown with love and dedicated to your local co-ops and farmers! I look forward to bringing lots of fun for the whole family in the Broccoli Brothers Circus series . 

The first edition of this book will be a 24 page coloring book which should be ready for print by Christmas 2012! 

The next installment of this series will be a multimedia DVD featuring  videos of Mr. Mark and friends  performing  in concert venues including the Wilmington Children's museum,the Learning tree, Tidal Creek Co-op, and more+  lots of bonus art, a full color digital version of BBC ,educational activity pages,  new mp3  and more!!! This DVD is scheduled to release in the spring of 2013

I have been dreaming of bringing  this project to life and with your support I can make it a reality!!!! Your pledge in any amount helps to offset costs of production including but not limited to, printing costs, promotional travel costs, production and engineering costs, equipment and many other expenses. 

About the author...

He has spent the last 7 years of his life singing and playing instruments at schools, museums, libraries, festivals and events t about the joys of broccoli and the wonders of making music With 2 CD recordings to his credit he has provided many a classroom , living room or vehicle with fun music that is enjoyable to both the kids and the “grown ups” Mark also has a band “Cosmic Groove Lizards” in which he enjoys playing with other creative talent to make and original blend of funky folk rock. This is Mark’s first children’s book and he is excited to have many more projects on the horizon including several more music recordings and a collection of books and artworks This special coloring book edition is made possible by these generous sponsors who support Mark’s educational and entertainment program.

Risks and challenges

Challenges that hinder me from completion of this project include finding a great printing company that can give me a cost effective product that does not sacrifice quality. I am going to research and use local sources to print and produce all materials.. The Multimedia DVD will require many more hours of recording and editing.. I will be working with some of the areas engineers to overcome this hurdle.. If my campaign is successful I will be bombarded with packaging and shipping of incentives. I plan to enlist the help of family and friends to help ensure all products are sent out in a timely manner
