The Kickstarter campaign for The Worry Tree is Waiting children's book exceeded it's funding goal by 20%! 172 backers produced $6,624.00! Many friends, family and colleagues pledged but so did many more strangers from within the U.S. and abroad, which tells us that people all over the world can appreciate this kind of story.
I will begin working on the remaining paintings this weekend and will have them to the book designer sometime in June. She'll create the layout and send that file to the local printer. The plan is to have the books ready for distribution in September.
What a journey so far. Now, off to organize my studio and get these paintings done.
