HELP KICKSTART NEW MadelEine BOOK
Reported by: Hubmaker Media Follow Hubmaker Media on FacebookHubmaker Media on Twitter

Last September local author and illustrator Peter Lynas and Charlie Roberts released their first book together called Madeleine Goes to the Moon.

New Madeleine book on KickstarterIt was extremely well received with perfect reviews across the board. Peter has spent much of his spare time since visiting local schools, libraries, nurseries and fairs reading the book to children, and the one question he is always asked is ‘When is the next book coming out?’.

Well, Madeleine’s next adventure is written and is called Madeleine Goes to the Sunken Shipwreck. In it, Madeleine dives to the dark depths and explores the bottom of the ocean in search of hidden treasure. But what she actually finds there takes her somewhat by surprise…..

In order to turn Madeleine’s next imaginary adventure into a reality, Peter will be running a Kickstarter project for 30 days, from 2nd to 31st March. During this time Madeleine Goes to the Sunken Shipwreck will be available to pre-order from the Kickstarter website, and if enough orders are placed to reach the target goal, then work on creation of the book will commence in April.

So how does Kickstarter work? Well, in reality it is quite simple and very easy to use. Here are the basic steps:

  1. Place a pre-order of the book on the Kickstarter website.
  2. Provide payment details but pay nothing now.
  3. If enough pre-orders are taken within the 30 day time limit, the book will be created and payment taken.
  4. The book (and anything else you order) will be delivered in October.
