Hello friends, my name is Moon Mermaid. I am a year round professional mermaid entertainer, often spotted swimming in the warm sunny pools of Arizona. I have been entertaining for over 16 years and have worked very hard to make a life of spreading magic and inspiring imaginations! Within the last few years I put out my first 2 self published children's books, "Moon Mermaid and the Treasure of Friendship" and "Moon Mermaid and the Pirates" with the help of support from fin~tastic humans like you!
I have been able to read my books to children at museums, bookstores, children's birthday parties, festivals, conventions, special events, and more! The books have been a hit with all ages and I am ready to begin my next adventure with you! Are you ready?
I am head over fins excited to announce that I am working on my 3rd book and I want you to be apart of creating it! My new photo storybook will be about my latest adventure..... I find ATLANTIS! With your donations we will be able to pay for the GORGEOUS photography, the editing, the layouts and graphic design, the photoshoot costs such as location fee costs etc, equipment, additional costuming and props that may be needed, printing costs, and other unforeseen expenses that are sure to arise (I learned that from previous projects, the hard way)!
This adventure, color photo book will have approximately 40-50 pages in an 8.5x8.5 paperback book and will be printed in the US. My goal, with your help, is to have the new book by October of this year! ( I would like to have it out in time for Halloween events!) That means we have to have it all ready to print by September! We will have several photoshoots and we will need to start them March-June, then the book goes into the writing and editing process June-August, after that it will be sent to print and received by October!
This book will be shot strategically and well planned to go as smoothly and as cost effective as possible all while still being of high quality and self published. I have carefully chosen local artists and well known local entertainers to be a part of this magical creative project and I have developed a strict timeline and budget plan to create the most fin~tastic book ever! Again, your contributions will help to cover the costs of printing, editing, the photographers fees, use of underwater equipment, production, props, layout design, locations, graphic design, cover design, shipping and other unforseen costs (such as water damage, you never know what could happen!).
The new book will be photographed images, not drawings, and I have teamed up with some wonderful graphics artists and editing team members to make this a unique and enchanting new book of art!
The beautiful aquatic story will answer more questions about how Moon was created, and just WHO created her, you will see inside the secret world of Atlantis and meet some of the underwater inhabitants that live beneath the waves!
I want to say thank you for your help in creating and supporting this great project! As a rewards your name will be listed in the contributors section in the book! If you would not like your name printed or would like another name listed please let me know! I have more surprises! This year one of the photoshoots for the book will be shot live on set at the Phoenix Fan Fusion event Memorial weekend! I will be posting the de~tails of the shoot times as the event nears and we would love to "sea" you there! The next surprise is, I will be taking votes from my fans for the title of the book! So stay tuned and keep an eye on my Facebook page!
Thank you so much for your support, now let's make some magical dreams come true!
*** Note: We are saddened to see that GoFundMe no longer has a rewards tier feature. For donations of $30+ we would like to send you a copy of the new book if we can get it to print! We will need a mailing address for those that wish to receive a book OR a surprise reward(s) from me! ***
