Kickstarter Update #1

Hello! Hola! Kon’nichiwa! Bonjour! Dia dhuit!

Oh, what a journey this has been so far!

This book has gone through several rounds of edits, proofreads, beta readers, and much more. So far, this project has been on a 6-month journey and will only reach the end of its journey December 1st, 2019! That’s just wild! Never have I been so invested in a creative project before until this project came along.

With that said, I’m SO excited and SO proud to announce the kickstarter (crowdfunding campaign) to have this book published will be launching on October 1st, 2019, running through till October 31st, 2019. If the campaign is successful, we expect the hard copies and all other perks to be sent out by December 1st, 2019. This cute picture book will make the perfect Christmas gift for your child.


Synopsis of the story:

Three siblings challenge each other over a simple game where it is discovered there are always more than one solution to accomplish a task or problem, leading to never doubting one’s own abilities ever again.

“Over The Creek” is written by (yours truly) Jacob Thomas and illustrated by Sarah Arrowsmith.
