A Worthy Campaign...
12 days ago – Sun, Jul 31, 2022 at 05:16:11 AM

I've come across and have backed this cute project: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/garythegoatbook/sydney-the-sloth-childrens-book?ref=a5t46q

But it's more than cute. It's helping to raise book donations for a worthy cause.

This is from the author's campaign:

"Recently my hometown and the surrounding areas in northern NSW were  devastated by floods. Thousands of people have been left without homes  and belongings. Along with this libraries, schools, childcare centers,  and family daycare centers have also had all their resources  ravaged. You can read more about the Read to Recover Project here."

Her campaign is ending soon, and needs help to fund. 

Would you take the time to help her? Even if you don't have little ones who would enjoy this book, you can do as I did and donate one or more to this cause. 

Thank you so much!

Hardback Update...
13 days ago – Sat, Jul 30, 2022 at 06:36:40 AM

At long last, my proof copy of the Herbs Hardback book has finally been shipped to me. The expected delivery date is Friday, August 5. Such a long time from ordering it to receiveing it, but at least the end is in sight. Once I verify the layout looks good, I will send out copies to those who backed at the hardback levels. From there, it will likely take another 3 weeks before you receive them. I'm looking forward to seeing my copy and hope you feel the same about yours.

Nelly and I have been busy while we've been waiting and now have another campaign that will be ready to go in early September. This one if for a new series of children's picture book stories (and handmade clay-and-shell figures representing two of the characters from the books). They are Nelly's inspiration from living near the Atlantic Ocean.

We'll let you all get a sneak peak at the campaign once we've done more tweaks and finished the content, We'd love it if you could follow the campaign for now and help us boost our follow number. Here's a link to the campaign: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ronesa-aveela/seababies-adventures

Feel free to share with anyone you think might be interested.

Thank you so much for all your support and your patience while I worked through the printing issues with the herbs book. We've already tested the children's stories, and they upload fine through are regular POD service, so that's one headache we can avoid in the next campaign.

Print Book Update
about 1 month ago – Sat, Jul 09, 2022 at 06:36:19 AM

Unfortunately, we continue to be plagued with problems trying to get the paperback and hardback Herbs book ready to be printed. The hardback has finally passed checks, but I want to get yet another proof copy to make sure it actually prints okay. We are expected to have that by the end of July. Author copies always take longer than regular proof copies. We have a ticket in for the paperback.

On a more positive note, we have submitted separate orders for the other print books that were part of the various pledges or ordered as add-ons. Those should be arriving within a couple of weeks.

Thank you all for your patience. It's so frustrating to deal with these issues. The proof copies we ordered earlier looked great, so it's difficult to understand why "real" orders cannot be printed, especially since the files were exactly the specified sizes. We'll keep you posted.
