BUT………….IT’S A SECRET………….
THIS BOOK IS SO SPECIAL THAT WE FEEL WE MUST KEEP THE TRUE TITLE OF IT “UNDER WRAPS” UNTIL THE FIRST EDITIONS ARE PRINTED!
The new book, by Four Time Award Winning Children’s Author, Lisa Calhoun Owen, has already been picked up by Warren Publishing of Charlotte. Once again, Jordan Wray of Vancouver, Canada has teamed up with Lisa to create another magical story to delight young readers. We can’t say much about this story but we can tell you it’s about the Alphabet and will attract children from preschool to First Grade. It will also make a wonderful gift for any child – even a Baby Shower Gift!
The story took over four years to write and it is written with Lisa’s love of poetry in mind. Her infallible ability to take words and turn them into a beautiful cadence of rhymes sparks the children’s imaginations. Children will be able to learn new words they have never heard before. Jordan will be able to reach a larger audience as the illustrations will encompass children worldwide. It’s an exciting time to release an Alphabet Book that will change the way children think!
Lisa is announcing a new campaign to begin immediately to help fund the book. With the huge success of “The Moonlight Dancer” it is sure to be another award winner! We hope you believe in her and Jordan’s ability to achieve more than they did the first time around!
The COVID pandemic has affected us all in so many ways and writers/songwriters/ artists/musicians have been some of the hardest hit during the past year. Although we pay taxes, we are not considered eligible for Unemployment Benefits. We depend on the outdoor markets, the book signings, the visits to schools, libraries and retail stores to sell our craft. The Pandemic put a halt on all of our income generating abilities. Lisa chose to submit her second story to Warren Publishing because of the success she had with them with her first book and the professional staff who care so much about their authors as well as the quality of their works. The costs to publish an illustrated Alphabet book requires an investment of both money and time. Then, there is editing, hiring the illustrator, proofing, marketing, advertising and much much more.
We hope you would like to become a part of the incredible journey of writing a book to seeing it through the publishing process. If you do choose to be one of our supporters, we will make sure you are kept up to date weekly with the progress and give you sneak peaks into our little world via your email account.
We want to make sure you receive something for helping us fund the book so we have listed amounts and what we would like to offer you in return for your donation. You can also donate just because you believe in our new story. If you are wondering why we are not part of Kickstarting or Crowdfunding , we feel we cannot proceed in this fashion since we cannot divulge the title or the “meat” of the project. It’s just that great of a book!
The book is scheduled for release April 1st, 2021.
