Kickstarter update for the masses : )

Hey Everyone,

My 2nd attempt at running a Kickstarter only has 9 more days!  : )  This time I am funded and hoping to surpass the 1st attempt's numbers.  With the smaller funding goal we were able to make it a successful campaign.

If you don't already know about my book, The Pancake Menu, I invite you to check it out and share it.


Life has been busy lately with kids and some of their things, so I haven't been able to blog as much as I plan to.

The rewards offered with this Kickstarter may never be available again, so if you are interested in getting the money pack, apron, spatula--you might want to grab it while you can : )

Thanks so much for following my publishing adventure.  BTW, I was researching distribution the other day and it is expensive!  I think I may need to personally handle distribution for a while so there is some profit made on the book.  Seriously, if distribution gets 30%, stores buy the book at 50% of the price, and the book itself costs to print and ship places... that leaves 0% for me : (  But, if you know of any good book distributors, I'm all ears.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

If Danica McKellar can take a couple minutes out of her day to retweet about my book, so can you!
I hope everyone is having a great International Pancake Day!  Please help spread news about this fun, interactive book for kids! It's the best of both worlds, education and food! Link: http://kck.st/1Mj2922


 Thanks!

Publishing for education... here we come!

My new Kickstarter campaign is up and running!


There are only three weeks to fund!  I'd appreciate any social sharing and support!

The Pancake Menu: What will you order? is a fun, education, and interactive book for 6-11 year olds that helps them practice math as they play restaurant!

Have a great day!

Taxes submitted, now I can maybe get to other stuff

Spent ALL day on taxes... ugh, but yay for finishing my end!  Now I can think about other stuff...


  • Getting the rewards to my giveaway winners.
  • Revamping the new Kickstarter campaign.
  • Planning and goal setting for 2015.


And probably some other stuff too, but my brain in a little burnt out after crunching all the tax info and adding up receipts.

I hope you are have a great day : )

Kickstarter ending, preparing for relaunch, and Kindle ready for Amazon pre-order!

It's been a bit over a week, but I've been hard at work working on finishing touches of the book for the print-run, thanking my backers on Kickstarter, and preparing the final file for the Kindle version.  Whew!

First off, my Kickstarter just has today and tomorrow to fund.  I think I set my goal a bit high, so when I relaunch I will go for a lower amount.  I'm thinking $3-5,000 range.  Here is my video, which you still can back (until tomorrow).



And there is still this giveaway if you share it...

a Rafflecopter giveaway

The other exciting news is that the Kindle book can now be pre-ordered from Amazon!
Yay!  I am working with the printer on hardcovers and I have my release date set at July 18th.  I have my Library of Congress Control Number all set up and the barcode and ISBN ready...

I have to show you a sneak peek at the entire cover... it's so great!

Back to work for me.  If anyone wants to have me as a guest blogger on their blog during my relaunch of the Kickstarter, I'd be thrilled.  Planned duration is Feb 13-Mar 4. : )
