As our most thankful month of the year comes to an end, my book characters and I want to give a great big THANK YOU for giving us life and joining us on my 1st book collection journey. After today, these books will not be available as I consider the opportunity to create new stories. . We also raised a total of $568 to support two amazing nonprofits. A donation of $318 from the Kickstarter fund went to support @donorschoose to help schools affected by Hurricane Harvey. A donation of $250 from post-Kickstarter sales went to support @sandyhookpromise to prevent gun-related violence in schools. . Thank you also to those friends who shared stories/photos of reading my book(s)! Makes my heart full. 😊 If you’re interested in a recap of my entire journey, check link in bio to learn more! . Cheers and thank you again for the support!
Day 144: At any time I walk into a bookstore, I typically make a beeline for the children’s book section. I don’t have any children of my own, so it’s purely for my own interest. I like to see how many authors/books I recognize, how many authors are also illustrators, how many of them are female, which books became series, or which books are best-sellers. I took this photo at a San Francisco bookstore on Oct 2014 dreaming of how I can one day join the shelves with books of my own. (2/6)
