Edition now only 100!
It's getting close to the end of the campaign now so, to make it a bit more exciting, and more exclusive for all the wonderful people who have already backed the project, I have reduced the edition to only 100. If it does become a collector's edition, then it really will be limited!
So! Is this the most Curious Story in the World? Possibly... Probably... Maybe!
We all know the story of Pandora, who opened the box and let out all the terrible things that had never existed before. Oops! Luckily, she also released Hope into the world.
I've been telling, re-telling and re-shaping this story to elementary/primary school audiences for years - thrilling and scaring them in equal measure. It's always a hit and they always want to buy a copy of the book. But there hasn't been one... until now.
Recently, I woke up and thought, "Just do it! Make a special, limited-edition for the truly curious that will be fun and intriguing and enticing too!"
Pandora is a bright and clever young girl who wants to know everything. But there's one thing she is curious about more than anything else... What is behind the door at the end of the Long, Dark Corridor
She's been told a million times that she must never go there, but Pandora really is a very curious girl!
Here is a small sample:
Pandora is a signed, numbered limited edition. There will only be 100 copies, so it really is truly limited.
Cherished Supporters will have their names inscribed on the Cherished Supporters' Page. A few of them will invite me into their homes, via Skype, to perform the book, answer questions and maybe give a drawing lesson. The top reward will include original watercolour paintings of Pandora and her cat.
If you don't want the book, but would love to support the project, then why not have Pandora give you a Twitter or Instagram shout out? Or have her send you a hand-written postcard or follow her progress online, as the book is put together and the story revealed day by day?
Aren't you curious to know how the story ends? Aren't you desperate to find out what happens to Pandora's cat? (You know what curiosity did?)
Are you a collector of the strange and curious? Is anything quite as curious a Pandora?
There's only one way to find out!
Pandora says, "thank you for supporting this project. It has been trying to get itself made for quite some time now. Let's do it!
Risks and challenges
Barring any mishaps, I'm confident that I can deliver this project, having self-published four books from scratch and nine others as reprints. I've had over 200 books published by major publishers - HarperCollins, Penguin, OUP, Hachette, Random House etc. I've illustrated over 70 more for other great authors, including Sir Michael Morpurgo of Warhorse fame.
My successful Scaredy Cats Kickstarter taught me what I know about delivery and I have all the packaging and delivery options worked out.
Any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
