The Book

The P.I.T.S. is a supernatural fantasy series that takes us through the historic periods of The Reformation, The Colonization of The Americas and The Salem Witch Trials; experienced from the perspective of 10 year old Jacqueline Broyeur. We see her journey through resentment, revival and restoration as she comes into the understanding that the power she needs to overcome all the hurt behind her and the evil obstacles in front of her, has already been placed within. But will she give into evil or will she choose good?

This book is for children that are nine years old and up. It will encourage them to find out the extraordinary gifts and abilities that they have within themselves and to stop at nothing to achieve them.

The Project

This almost 300 page novel with 13 original black and white illustrated poems (see a few in the book trailer above), is finally complete after 3 exciting years! With YOUR help, we are going to celebrate this achievement with the Montgomery, Alabama children and their families on October 29, 2011 at Old Alabama Town, a museum that consists of old houses and buildings from the 18th and 19th century. We will have chapter readings read by local teachers, free food and candy, book giveaways, a scavenger hunt and more. The event is free to the public and to you if you wish to come. We have already secured the venue and the readers and have spread the word.

We need You

We need resources so that this event can be as excellent as it can be. Plus we want to serve organic food (hotdogs and juice) and organic candy which you know can be a bit expensive, especially for the 300+ people we are expecting.

The Funds

A lot of the funds realistically will go to fulfilling the rewards. We are asking for $2500 and as you know, with Kickstarter, if you don't raise it all, you get absolutely Nothing. So $2500 is what we need to fulfill the vision for this event. $3500 or more will help us make it even more memorable, like late 17th century costumes for the readers.

$2500 Breakdown

$1000 goes to order books, $800 for food and candy,  $700 goes to raffle tickets, bookmarks, wristbands for entrance into the event, banners, maps for the event, bags to hold candy, Kickstarter fulfillments

$3500 Breakdown

$1000 goes to order books, $800 for food and candy,  $800 goes to raffle tickets, bookmarks, wristbands for participants, banners, maps for the event, bags to hold candy, Kickstarter fulfillments, $500 goes to costumes, $400 sound system rental for (microphones and speakers)

The Catch

We've got a week to do it. The funds are held for some time and we just came across Kickstarter less than a week ago, so all we have is a week to raise these funds in order to secure the money in time.  But with YOU, we can do it. So please help us spread the word. Thanks!
