ABOUT THE AUTHOR AND SAMPLE OF THE BOOK:

Award-winning artist, author and cartoonist Kate Salley Palmer has been writing and illustrating picture books since 1991. Her first venue into children’s books, How Many Feet in the Bed, won acclaim from Booklist. Since then, she has written and/or illustrated more than twenty books. Kate is also known for her political cartoon work during the 70’s and 80’s. She was one of only two nationally syndicated women cartoonists, the first full-time newspaper editorial cartoonist in South Carolina, and a winner of the Freedom Foundation’s Award for Editorial Cartooning in 1981. In 2000, one of her cartoons appeared in Newsweek’s special issue, 100 Years in Cartoons.

Warbranch Press, Inc. is a small, family-owned publishing company where we write, illustrate and publish our own line of books  - for more information about our products, please visit our WEBSITE

The new line of small poetry picture books is called "Little Tales" and the first book to come out of this venture will be called I Know Santa Very Well.  The picture book is based on a poem by Kate Salley Palmer and takes the reader on a journey through the messages we're told about Santa and the narrator's vision of Santa.

The funds will go towards printing costs and marketing.  We plan to be finished with the book around the end of September, beginning of October and will have it printed before Thanksgiving 2013.

Risks and challenges

The challenges we see are going to be in the actual painting of the book. Kate is working on hand-painting the book now and we will make sure to keep in contact with donors to let you know how things are progressing and if there might be a delay in printing.

We look forward to keeping you up to date with a blog and pictures. Thanks so much for checking us out!

Best,

Salley Palmer Ouellette
