New Book Publications

$988 of $4,200 goal

Raised by 10 people in 16 months
Hi Everyone,

In July of 2017, thanks to the donation efforts of my first crowdfunding campaign, I successfully published my first children's book, "Your Hands Can Change The World!"  From this book, I was able to create an educational resource that deepens and extends the lessons in the book. I was also able to create a blog/website which contains my book and updates, writing and educational workshops, and my personal creative writing. (Check it out at mycirclegame.com)

Publishing a children's book was a lot of hard work, but the fulfillment of sharing my book with families has been a powerful and uplifting experience. I've met some wonderful people, learned a lot about myself, and received some helpful insights. And it is just the beginning. 

I am in the process of creating a book *series* for young readers about how to share with each of our 5 senses, and I need your help to bring the next 2 books to life. 

The money raised through this crowdfunding campaign will be used for the publishing costs of 1 new book, minor improvements to my first book and a new hardback version. I will also create educational resources to pair with the new book just as I did for my first book. The money donated to this campaign will also be used to give me the time I need to accomplish this goal, and to actively market my books. 

*The updated delivery of the finished books is late September 2019.

The best way I know to show my gratitude for your support of my campaign is to continue to work hard, never give up, and to always shine my own personal light into the world through the words and pictures in my books. I have also set up some pretty sweet reward levels this time to show how much I appreciate the support.

Thank you for your time and energy! If you have any questions or concerns, please ask anytime. 

All the Best,
Cristee Cook

This time last year I set out to publish the 2nd and 3rd books in my series, only to be met with a slew of unexpected challenges. I never dreamed my project would be delayed by a year! But...because I believe it's never too late, I am re-igniting my project with more clearly defined goals and an adjusted crowdfunding amount.

'Your Smile Can Change The World!' is underway, with expected delivery still slated for September of thsi year.
A 2nd edition of 'Your Hands Can Change The World!' is also on track to be released early fall, which will include some updates to the interior of the book, as well as a new hardcover option.

I wanted to update this campaign for those of you who generously donated and to assure you that despite delays, I am working hard to complete this project in it's original intent.

Please stay updated for a reveal of the cover design soon. Thank you again for your continued support.

I received this message from a teacher who purchased my book. Here’s what she said:

“Each of my students planted a helping hand and shared how they would help or use their hands! I typed each use! It was very beautiful! I look forward to the other senses! An amazing book! I will, one day have the courage to write my own book!
Adriana
ENL Teacher” ❤️

Needless to say I am so touched. This is one of the reasons I wrote this book and I dreamed it would help others.
