[Stick with us until the end of this update, because there is a little secret we want to share with you.]
By the end of 2017, so many more children around the world will have this labour of love on their nightstand, just like we had dreamed together!
We're just back from a month in Italy, where "Storie della Buonanotte per Bambine Ribelli" was published on February 28th by Mondadori. For the sixth week in a row... it's the #1 Best Seller with OVER 100,000 COPIES sold in just 6 WEEKS!!!
Here's a short video to give you an idea of what happened over the past month.
The last clip in the video is from BBC Breakfast who invited us to talk about the book in a live interview! In the UK, Australia, New Zealand and India you can now find it wherever books are sold, published by Penguin. We are the #3 Best Selling Book for Children in the UK (#4 IS HARRY POTTERRRRR!!)
Meet the Italian artists who illustrated the book
We invited them to the official presentation at the Italian Chamber of Deputies in Rome. It was rad to meet them in person and to share with them the emotional launch of the Italian translation!
A disturbing experiment
Did you see the video we published on March 6th and that became viral with 25 million views in 1 week? If you haven't, we think you should watch it.
We're growing, people.
When we launched this campaign one year ago, we were just two people working in their kitchen in Venice, California. The two of us are still in the same kitchen, but we've grown. We're now 10 people: an incredibly talented and diverse team spanning across different cities, states, countries.
We are looking for the most passionate, talented people we can find, wherever they may live, whomever they may be.
Specifically, our current available positions are:
1) An experienced Executive Assistant based in LA. You have assisted executives with complex schedules across several timezones, you have managed company travels and understand how to structure an agenda strategically. You have experience in dealing with PR requests, admin tasks and are passionate about helping your clients focus on their top priorities. (Bonus if you speak Italian)
2) A Radio Producer to work on a new production with us. (sorry, not a lot of details, 'cause we don't want to spoil any surprises).
3) A Sales/Distribution Manager with the primary function to grow the retail sales in the traditional bookstore and library marketplace and in the non traditional gift/special store marketplace. You have a big experience in publishing and distribution, you're an out of the box thinker and are dying to disrupt the traditional books distribution model.
4) A Content Growth Marketer. Build and manage a rich content/editorial calendar that attracts a qualified audience to our owned properties (including blog posts, whitepapers, ebooks, reports, webinars, infographics, etc.). - Grow new leads, including marketing-qualified leads, by converting site traffic through calls-to-action, landing pages, and lead generation content (including offers). - Optimize our marketing automation and lead nurturing processes through email, content, and social channels.

You'll hear from us again next week, as we'll have something important to celebrate with you.
Always stay rebel,
