Scaredy Cats the book and Audiobook

In this KickStarter project I'm asking for your support to create a 138 page book, which is  a collection of all nine of my Scaredy Cat stories - funny, scary stories for children with lots of illustrations. They are classic horror stories re-written to be not quite so scary for children - or cats!

I'm relaunching this KickStarter project having learned so much from my previous, cancelled campaign. I've been working on the project since I cancelled it in May and the book is now almost ready to go to the printers. I've made the rewards both simpler and of greater value.

Scaredy Cats are inspired by classic ghost and horror stories but seen from a cat's point of view. The titles are: Frankatstein - The Killer Cat Flap - Bluebeard’s Cat - The Foggy Moggy Inn - Casula - Catnapped - Dr Catkyll & Mr Hyde - Catkin Farm - The House of Mirrors. Each story is illustrated with black and white line drawings.

All books will be signed with your name (or the name of anyone you choose) in scary writing to make a wonderful and personal gift for you or someone you know. A perfect Gift for the Holiday Season.

Why not become a cherished supporter and have you name on the supporters page in every copy of the book to say thank you? Hurry... there are limited spaces. 

I'll be making an audiobook with the specially commissioned Scaredy Cats music from the very talented Chris Wonfor that you can hear on the video above. This will be available as a download or on a special edition USB card.

I'll be keeping you in touch with the whole process, so you will really feel that you have been a part of it all.

Please help support the project by telling your friends and family and mentioning it in your blogs and social media feeds.

Stretch Goals!

As you can see below, I have added stretch goals. If the project goes reaches and exceeds the target, I'll be adding the extra rewards shown out below, so the more support - the more you get!

 

Risks and challenges

I began my career in printing and have loved making books all my life. I think I'm pretty expert in the software and process of book-making and printing today, so I don't see any insurmountable problems ahead.

I have been performing these stories in schools for some time, so I know how to read them.

In all, God-willing and with your support, there shouldn't be too many problems with this project. I'll be sharing the process with you all the way, so you'll know what's happening at every stage.
