Lily & the Fox

$2,436 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 75 people in 33 months

Ok, friends!  I'm doing this, even though I know it's crazy!   If I can raise $1,500 by Monday, the 9th, I can have signed hardcover copies to you before Christmas!

The story is complete, and I'm working night and day to finish the last illustrations.  I'll be posting photos of the yummy pictures as I complete them.

In this second book in the series, Lily is too shy to make friends with the boys at her fishing hole, but learns to be brave and recognize how we are all ultimately the same.

This book is intended for elementary aged kids, but is a story for all ages.  It is the second in a series about kids who are struggling with something and who connect with an animal in nature to help them on their way.  You can download a free ebook of the first book in the series (Peter & the Owl) HERE.

So...I just need to pre-sell 100 copies of this new book to pay for the beautiful printed hardcovers.  Can you help??

Please pre-order your copy now (at 25% off the cover price!) and share this with everyone you know who has kids in their lives!

Thank you so much!!
Heidi Huebner

Hello Everyone! Well, we have officially delivered all the books now, either through Priority Mail or in person. Hopefully, you are all finding them arriving safely at your doors. (Some of you farther away may take another day or so for the post office to reach you.)

If for some reason the book doesn't make it to you safely, please let me know! I am so looking forward to hearing what you (and the kids in your life) think of the book...especially the ending. Please let me know once you've had a chance to read it through.

I hope you all enjoy a warm and peaceful holiday season! Thank you again for your support in having this really happen!

Many blessings,
Heidi Huebner

We did it! Thank you so much for your support! I received a gift for the final amount this morning and the books are on their way!

I pick up all the boxes tomorrow at the UPS store and will spend the weekend getting them shipped out to you (or dropped off in person if you live locally). Yay!

Thank you again for making this possible. I hope you all enjoy your copies!

Many blessings,
Heidi Huebner

The printing date is set! The girls and I get to drive up to Brainerd, MN on December 3rd for the "press check". We get to watch the pages come right off the big printing machines and tweak the color if necessary. They are so excited to be able to come with!

Please keep sharing! I still need to pre-sell 71 more copies to pay the balance to the printers on December 10th and have the books delivered in time for Christmas.

Thank you so much!!
