Kickstarter Campaign Kicks Off!

Picture Books: A Child's POV

Do you love books?

Do you love children?

Do you want to invest in something of great value?

My friend and fellow writer Julie Foster Hedlund has written a beautiful picture book celebrating the love between a parent and child. Artist Susan Eaddy, has completed one stunning illustration to provide a sense of what the final book will look like. But they need help to get it published. They’ve launched a campaign on Kickstarter to fund the production, publication and printing of the book. Check out their campaign, and if you love the book as much as I do, please consider backing the project.

Julie already has two awesome picture book story apps that are loved by children: A Troop is a Group of Monkeys and Shiver of Sharks. I know that My Love for You is the Sun is a book that will take its place beside Goodnight Moon and Guess How Much I Love You as a favorite read-it-to-me-again-please story.

I’ve already visited the Kickstarter site and pledged my support for this valuable project. I hope you will check it out!

  1. Wow, that’s an interesting way to launch a book. I wonder how popular it is.


  2. I’m not inclined to donate to a campaign to help launch someone else’s book ~ even someone I “know” in the blogosphere. Unless, perhaps, the author has a plan to share the profits with investors. :mrgreen:
