Today I launched my first Kickstarter project for a book that I am working on called “The Summer Santa: Christmas in July.” The goal for my project is only 10 dollars, but the sky is the limit.
My house caught fire a week before Christmas, and I penned this children’s story.
“The Summer Santa: Christmas in July” is about Santa coming to the rescue of a small town from a wildfire, to save all the toys that he’d given to the children in years past for Christmas.
Santa becomes one of the hotshots and lends a hand to help fight a forest fire, at the request of a young girl, who’s toys are at risk of being lost in the approaching fire.
I live in the Western United States, where there are dozens and dozens of wildfires, many of which are out of control for days, destroying hundreds of acres and homes. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a little help from ol’ Saint Nick and his magic red dust, to help fight the fires?
I have written and illustrated a handful of other children’s books, including an Amazon best-seller, Tongue Twisters for Kids, which has been a number one free children’s Kindle book on Amazon.
Funding of my project will go towards purchasing basic art supplies required to illustrate my book like some art paper and some economical paints.
Stretch goals reached would allow me to buy better quality art supplies, ISBN’s for my book, professional editing, a better more interactive book app, more marketing options, and a supply of actual books to sell.
Check out the Kickstarter and help me reach my goal.
