Year End Updates

Hello Everyone!

Happy December!  Hope Thanksgiving was a memorable one.

I just looked at the oldest post and...I can't believe it's been a year since we officially started this blog and project!!! 

Alright, moving on.

For those of you who are eager to support us NOW with your donations (instead of waiting for the Kickstarter campaign, see below), we are grateful, and ready to accept any amount!  Please click on the "Support Us" tab above and it will take you to the page that has the info on how to donate as well as the PayPal option. 

Alright, the Kickstarter campaign.  We worked hard but, unfortunately, didn't quite make the deadline that we've set for ourselves, i.e. mid November.  We had the option of pushing for a late November/early December launch but we thought better of it.  December is a very busy time of the year for most people and we didn't want to add to the busy-ness and get lost in the shuffle.  So we've decided to keep on working on the illustrations and marketing campaign but we will wait until February 2015 to launch our Kickstarter.  We hope by then most everyone would have recovered from the holidays and easier to reach out to.

But in the meantime, here are a couple of updates:

Our friend, Emi Endo, has offered to make fliers and other marketing materials!  She is a graphic designer and a writer.  Can't say it enough- I'm very grateful for this.  As soon as we get a sample flyer, we will post it up.

Also, this December 14, our friends Jade Shulist and Annie Frey, have invited me to present the book at their soon-to-be-open kid friendly cafe in Berkeley called The Rec Room.  I don't yet know what I'll do but I'm so excited!

Thanks, Emi, Jade, and Annie!  And thank you for checking in and for your support!
