When I Grow Up
When first setting out on the journey of author, I knew the first thing I wanted to conquer was the world of children's books. I wanted to create something that would educate not only my daughter, but children everywhere, on the value and importance of self acceptance.
However, self-publishing a book is not easy. Not only does it take the time and energy to create, but it also takes funds to prepare, produce and print. Thankfully, Kickstarter me the platform to try and achieve this. So I threw myself (and my story) out there into the world and I waited...
Well - I didn't have to wait long! The love and support that came rushing in was overwhelming and within 30 days, I had reached 116% of my goal! My backers not only helped me bring my dream to life, but they are also raising awareness for mental illness, with 30% of all book sales going to beyondblue.Who are beyondblue?
”"Beautifully written and illustrated book which is definitely a hit in our household. Wonderful to read a book valid for children and adults alike. Even for me, it hits home as someone who still wonders what to do in life (apart from being a mum to my beautiful children of course!). Well done Kasey.”
”"'When I Grow Up' is a feel good book with a wonderful message behind it. Teaching young ones that it is your values and virtues that matter the most. The book is beautifully illustrated and best of all, no gender stereotyping - proving you really can be anything you want!"
Unlike the others, these statistics are 100% true!
