5 Months:

Can you believe it’s almost been 5 months since we started this Kickstarter and already so much has happened. And it’s only about 5 more months until all the illustrations are done and the book is finished!

Illustrations:

Thanks to everyone who helped edit the book so now it is in its final written format and the only thing left to do is finish the illustrations. David has been busy drawing away to complete the artwork by the deadline.

PBS interview:

For those of you who donate to PBS you should be receiving a newsletter sometime in November that will be featuring me and our Kickstarter. Ted Libbey and I spoke about how PBS made such a large impact in my life growing up with shows like Mr. Rogers, Sesame Street and Reading Rainbow that it made me want to give back to the organization. We vow to give a majority of the profits from the book to the PBS foundation so that they can continue to produce quality children’s programming. More about this to come!

Podcast:

Recently I was also interviewed by Entrepreneurs Today Podcast with Toni Guffei. It was a great experience that I was able to speak more about helping parents and children. if you are interested take a listen at http://entrepreneurtalkshow.podomatic.com/entry/2013-10-08T15_16_02-07_00.

Book Publishing Conference:

Last weekend I went to a book publishing workshop and learned a lot about the ins and outs of the publishing industry, set some partnerships and might now have a publisher for our book. A lot of it is still up in the air but it was a great learning experience and definitely helps us build momentum to our project.

As always if you have any questions or comments let us know. Thanks again and have a wonderful weekend!

P.S. sorry for the lack of pictures but it seems Kickstarter changed how you can add them.
