Ever since I was a tiny little fairy, I have dreamed of magic, wonder, and a world where the impossible is brought to life.
Well, that and having my very own unicorn =)
I live my dream each weekend by appearing throughout the United States at Renaissance Festivals, listening to soft voices meekly ask their parents, "is she a real fairy?". Though I can't speak at festivals, through the magic of the internet, I can finally answer them with messages sent in email, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and now Kickstarter with a resounding "YES!" … followed by an appropriately-timed, friendly glitterbomb =)
The purpose of my fundraising project is to cover the costs of producing my new children's book. This includes printing, graphic design, travel costs, underwater photo equipment, a massive quantity of seaweed, sea shells, and of course a fairy to mermaid transformation kit. I've been working hard all summer to get the images shot, and have put everything I've got into it.
That's where you come in.
Normally, at this point, I would take on a bunch of debt to get as many books printed as I could afford. Then, spend months or years trying to make my money back and pay off the debt.
Kickstarter allows supporters like you to pledge an amount that will help fund production of the book as a pre-sale. Depending on your pledge amount, you will be given a reward for your pledge. This is not a donation, you will actually get some glitterrific rewards for helping make my dream come true!
And it's all or nothing. If the project goal is not met, everyone's money is refunded and the project will not move forward.
My newest book will allow every parent to invite fairy magic into their home, so little girls and boys will never again ask "Are fairies real?". They'll already believe.
This new book tracks the adventure and mishaps of a fairy and mermaid who think it would be so much easier to be the other person. After switching places, it becomes abundantly clear that both have their own unique challenges. For instance, do you have any idea how difficult it is to get sea weed untangles from your hair when you've been swimming carefree for hours?
The book will be a story in words, photographs, and illustrations that both children and adults will enjoy. It will be full color, hardcover, and roughly 32 pages. And there's an excellent chance it will be covered in fairy dust =)
Did I mention there will be mermaids?
And fairies underwater?
I'm so excited to share everything with you all!
You'll receive your reward for your contribution level AND all the gifts for the levels below your contribution level.
The funds raised here will be used to travel to a few magical locations to shoot photos for the book, complete the photo editing and illustrations, manufacture the books and other rewards, and of course the cost of shipping.
Thank you SO MUCH for your consideration! I would glitterally be nothing without the support of my fans -- lifelong and new! =)
