A Butterfly's Kiss, a children's book by David Faustina

A Butterfly's Kiss was inspired by a very special little child in my life.  Here is a video on our journey while on #Kickstarter...

When I started writing this book I knew this book had the power to inspire and entertain the imagination of children, but now I see it as even more. This book has the ability to spark conversation between a parent and child. This conversation is discussed below. 

This story is very simply, a book that allows kids to find purpose in life's ups and well as downs, "The time was important to prepare me you'll see, heaven sent, a butterfly kiss, to you, from me."

Will you please help me cross the finish line and publish this book? 

Hope, Faith, and a Dandelion Wish, 

David

Risks and challenges

Although we do not anticipate any issues in order fulfillment, I have placed CQ checks at various points in the production and distribution plans. I am prepared to meet deadlines as outlined in the rewards. If demand exceeds capacity we will quickly scale to meet the demands. However, this is still a work in progress and things such as legal, regulatory or foreign supply delays could present challenges. If such occurs we will update you accordingly. I am working on the final revisions and illustration review before our book layout artist completes the proof copy. This is exciting times and we want you to be a part of it all.

Our team has worked very hard to bring my vision from the dandelion fields to the big front window, where you will meet a loyal cat, a wise Butterfly, and a courageous little girl. The book will not disappoint and I have performed quality control at each step, made appropriate revisions and moved forward. The end result is a book that is filled with masterpieces sketched from our incredible French artist, Nicolas to the selection of a printer, Print Ninja who can meet my high standards in paper weight and finish, to the amazing song to kick off the book release by famed singer/songwriter Addie Nicole. And finally, to the charity partner, the Hip Dysplasia Institute who changes health outcomes for many through research and advocacy, to the ones who inspire me to do more and give more, the children I met in the hall of the hospital that day and to the special little child, may you share your smile so bright like your future will be, beautiful like the butterfly just you wait and see!

May you come to know the power of the wish when heaven sends you a butterfly kiss.

David Faustina
