As some of you may know, we are at an exciting season in our lives, as we are in the process of publishing our very first children’s book! The title of our book is “Daddy’s Love For Me,” and we are currently working with Mascot Books, a hybrid-publishing company to make this happen.
To give you a brief synopsis of our book, “Daddy’s Love For Me” introduces a young girl who believes her dad does not love her. She describes how he isn’t as present in her life as much as she would prefer him to be, stingy with the toys that he buys for her, and misses out on important events in her life. Throughout the first half of the book, she holds strong grudges against her dad - until she encounters unexpected moments that helps her realize that her dad actually does loves her. Perhaps not in the ways that her friends’ dads do, but that he loves her in his own special way!
This book will be valuable for two major reasons. For one, the story will challenge young children to recognize that parents show love in a myriad of ways and that there may be legitimate barriers that prevent parents from showing love in the fullest form to their children. Second, our story features an Asian family which we hope will increase the Asian representation in children’s literature, given that it is currently less than 4% in the U.S. Having Asian characters in our story will be one way we can contribute in doing so.
Given that we are currently both college students, it is challenging to meet the upfront costs of publishing, and we would like to reach out to you for financial support!
Your donations will be used to compensate for the estimated shipping and publishing costs (such as cover & interior designs, the illustration, and the book printing & binding services). Big or small - your donation will be greatly appreciated!
Once the book is published, 100% of the royalties we earn from this book minus the coverage of the upfront fees will be donated to Charity: Water, which is a non-profit organization that provides clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries.
Thank you in advance for your generosity. This opportunity to publish “Daddy’s Love for Me” is an incredibly exciting and meaningful part of our lives.
