The success of our first book, Adventure-Pom! Captain Henry Gingersnaps, has been a new author's dream come true. We were astounded as it quickly shot up on the Amazon Bestsellers list for Children's Dog Books! It makes us proud that we are able to share the love we have for Henry with so many of his new fans, families and children all over. We even received an amazing write up from the shelter we adopted Henry from, the Berkeley East Bay Humane Society!

The most frequently asked question we get from Henry's fans has been, when does his next book come out?! We are happy to announce on Kickstarter that the work for our next book, Adventure-Pom Road Trip! has begun! 

Fresh off his first adventure, Captain Henry Gingersnaps needs a vacation! He knows there are even more green hiking trails to trek and even greener pastures to wrastle around in. 

Everyone knows Adventure-Poms love road trips, so Henry is setting out for some poof tailed fun with his next book, Adventure-Pom Road Trip!

So lets talk details!

Why use Kickstarter for our next book? Publishing our first book has been an amazing experience. We knew right away that we couldn't stop with just one, so we started our very own publishing company, Thomas Ray Publishing

The rewards of this creative outlet have been extraordinary. Being a small publisher and getting recognized is not easy in the world of massive publishing houses. Advertisements and getting the word out to help people discover Adventure-Pom! takes a lot of resources. Given the chance, we are taking on the adventure of sharing our books with a whole new Kickstarter audience. 

From the start, we wanted Adventure-Pom! to be easy for kids to read and entertaining to follow, but also be smart and set a good grammatical example. To this end, we had an amazing edit and proof reader help out on our first book, and she worked absolutely for free! This time we can afford to pay her a bit for this invaluable service, and keep the book as high quality as possible.

Kickstarter is an amazing opportunity to work with so many people who love Henry, Pomeranian's and Children's Books as much as we do, ahead of release, to help make this book absolutely astonishing! A big thanks to Henry's fan base for your continued support!

When can I get it? Actually, it may be sooner then you think! We have been working on production for this book ever since the completion of our last. We have a majority of the photographs and material already done. Now we start story boarding, putting it together, and filling in the gaps. Estimated time of completion is end of May 2014. However, many of the other rewards will be available as soon as March 2014!

I love everything pomeranian. How can I add even more poof tailed cuteness in my life?  I hear that! After signing up to get our first book, and then signing up to get the sequel, the next step is following Captain Henry Gingersnaps on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter! Its hours, and hours, and hours of fun! All of us on the team will love having you mention your support for our project to all your best Pals.

We want to take this chance to thank you for reading this far! We know you will love following all of Henry's adventures!

Risks and challenges

Creating our first book, Adventure-Pom! Captain Henry Gingersnaps, truly was trial by fire. It was a learning experience with every step. Not only were we creating a new book for the first time, we also had the adventure of setting up a company for the first time!

The biggest obstacle that could arise is trying to create a story line even more creative and inventive than from our first book. We have an exciting plot outlined and much of the photography already complete.

The pleasure of working with Henry as our star pom is that he really does give the perfect expression for each scene we need. Just natural acting talent, I guess. You may know that pomeranians can have quite a personality and really will do what they want to do. Henry loves taking pictures and will sit perfectly pose after pose... until he's done. And he is good about telling us when its wrap time and then its time for some well deserved treats!

What it all means is that after sorting through our material, it is astonishing how the pictures really do come together and start to tell us our story. We are truly fortunate to have it so easy!

Aside from that, we have developed a great support network to produce our books and other rewards after this project gets funded!

The books are printed in beautiful high quality color from Createspace. They are printed on demand and if ordered in the USA, they are made in America! Printing on demand also helps to keep things green. There is no need to worry about printing extra inventory that will sit around unused, taking up space and energy, being stored in a warehouse. Our book comes out fresh and ready to be loved!

We also will be working with Moo.com and Apple to help bring our rewards and images to life.

With all this backing us up, we can't foresee any extreme delays in fulfilling each reward for you.
