Give us more details about your fundraiser:
Hello, folks. My name is Ronnie Smith & I’m a professional graphic artist. For many years, I’ve done illustration & graphic design for book publishers, ad agencies, software companies, courtroom trial exhibit companies, schools, Boy Scouts of America, Chuck E. Cheese, etc.
Recently, I have decided that it’s time for me to take my talents a different direction. Instead of creating artwork for other publishers, I’d publish my own series of children’s books that I will both write and illustrate. The series I plan on launching is themed around endearing monster mysteries and it will be targeted to young children, around pre-Kindergarten to 2nd grade. I intend to produce cute, captivating stories with a rhyming canter which will inspire children to learn to read or increase reading fluency. Although my books will feature monsters, whether real or imagined, they will turn out to be friendly and non-threatening. The first book in the series is 95% complete as of this writing. A good friend of mine, who is a school teacher for the grade levels my books will be targeted to, has seen the nearly completed first book and she’s very excited about getting some copies for her students. She feels that my books will be a perfect fit for her reading classes. Her positive reaction has encouraged me to keep going on this project.
Tell us why we should give to your campaign:
Needless to say, this rewarding endeavor has been very demanding in many ways. I’ll need more cash flow to cover overhead expenses associated with the production (including art supplies, computer hardware & sofware), publishing and advertising of my books. With your help, this dream will come to fruition.
