Thanks for Visiting

Hi! I am super excited that you took the time to stop by and check out my Kickstarter project to give my second book in the Stanley & Katrina series the paw-some cover it deserves. 

A Little Bit About Me

My first book, The Perpetual Papers of the Pack of Pets, has received rave reviews from readers of all ages and is in the top 20 of Best Rated Kindle>Children's Pet Books - Yippee!

You may have recently seen me on HuffPost Live's Tell Me Why program, where I had the opportunity (with my friend Erik) to interview Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson series. Yes, it was amazing! 

About the Book in this Project and the Cover

The first draft of The Observations of Obstreperous Animals was created during NaNoWriMo YWP in 2013, and is in the midst of editing and revision. While I plan to create the interior illustrations myself, I have penciled in a fabulous designer for the cover.This project will gather supporters who wish to partner with me to see the professionally designed cover come to life.

For a glimpse of the paw-riffic work of my chosen designer, GloGirly, check out her design page or just spend a few minutes on her paw-some blog: 

GLOGIRLY Design: http://www.glogirlydesign.com 

GLOGIRLY Blog: http://www.glogirly.com

Any funding I receive that is in excess of my goal will be spent on any of the following: 

  • Additional Editing/Proofreading Services (Line/Content)
  • Images for my website and blog
  • Book Trailer
  • Giveaways for Fans such as bookmarks, posters, t-shirts, and more.

Feel free to ask me any questions, I'll be happy to respond and thanks again for stopping by, 

Felicia

 Extra Stuff

    

In some of the higher level rewards, I offer the opportunity to sponsor a Word of the Week video for the 2014-2015 school year. Below are two of my favorite Word of the Week videos from the current school year. To view all of the videos, click here to view the full Word of the Week playlist on YouTube.

Risks and challenges

Well, of course, we don't expect any delays but then, life can be crazy and throw in events that can't possibly be expected.

Felicia has her first draft written and once this school year is over, her top priority is editing and revising "The Observations of Obstreperous Animals". Once that is complete, she will work on the interior illustrations and getting the book properly formatted (Felicia uses CreateSpace to publish her printed soft bound book).

Felicia already has the fab designer, GloGirly, penciled in to create the book cover, and she has the time scheduled to deliver the completed book by September of 2014. She and her mother believe they have padded the timing enough that even with a few speed bumps, the September 2014 date is attainable. As a backer of this fully-funded project, you will receive updates along the way.

Felicia's mother, Christine, is this project's administrator.
