My first book is coming…

Swallow Me, NOW!

I’m a little bit excited. Today is a special day – I’m launching the crowdfunding campaign for my first book: Swallow Me, NOW!

I’ve been working with Julieann Wallace from Lilly Pilly Press for the last year to get it edited and ready for publication and it’s nearly ready to go. We’re aiming for an October launch date so that I can celebrate my birthday with a book launch.

In order to fund publication, I’ve created a crowdfunding campaign through Pozible. If you don’t know what crowdfunding is, it’s a way of raising money for different projects. I see it as pre-selling books. If you want to learn a bit more about crowdfunding and publishing, my friend Julie Hedlund has a great series of blog posts starting at http://www.juliehedlund.com/why-i-am-crowdfunding-my-next-picture-book-part-i/

With my campaign, I’m raising money for layout and editing through Lilly Pilly Press, the gorgeous picture of Sam on my cover designed by Cecilia Clark, internal illustrations, and printing copies of the book. There is a full list of expenses on my crowdfunding campaign.

Over the next few days, I will be writing posts sharing more information about Swallow Me, NOW! including some of the background to the book and where my ideas came from.
