Check Out My Kickstarter Page!

  

  
Hello followers! I created a Kickstarter page today and would like to share it with everyone in hopes of getting the word out there about my Children’s Book Series – “Growing Up Gracie.” The series will follow a little girl who goes through childhood along with your kiddies! Gracie will do all the things your child does and will go through life and learn new things! The first book in the series will be titled “Gracie and the Lost Christmas Gift.” 

The story will allow children and their parents to enjoy a Christmas tale where Gracie finds a lost gift in a large crowd and tries her very best to return it to its owner. Gracie will help children learn the importance of the Christmas holiday while showing how amazing it feels to lend a helping hand to those in need! 

As of today, my page will have 29 days left to accept donations. My goal is $5,000, any little bit will help considering how much it costs to get a book proofread, edited and created. 

If you cannot donate, please share with friends! Thank you in advance.
