THE PROJECT: daily practice of Gratitude
Gratitude Exercise is a simple book with a powerful message, intended for children —and grown-ups.
Throughout its pages we GIVE THANKS for all the good and positive in our life, from Life itself, a Home, Food ..., to the Planet, our Talents or Health. Always connecting with our breath.
I've been really fortunate to have found a very talented illustrator and I have written the texts and designed the book myself. It's been a lovely hard work AND NOW I COUNT ON YOU to PRE-PURCHASE the book TO COVER its PRINTING COSTS so together we can make this beautiful book become a reality.
As an editorial designer and mother of a 5-year-old, it felt ESSENTIAL to publish this book, as a small contribution to the emotional and spiritual education of our children.
♥ I know YOU WILL LOVE IT ♥ —not only for its message, but also for it's beautiful illustrations and careful edition.
I will be printing 100 copies in English and 300 in Spanish (to buy a copy in spanish, please go to the spanish version of this campaign).
And of course, if this campaign is successful —I believe it will be—, the next step will be publishing it also in catalan (and probably french too).
Advantages of participating in this campaign
Mainly, by participating in this campaign PRE-PURCHASING THE BOOK you will be contributing firsthand to the book's printing and publishing.
Since it's an ALL or NOTHING Crowdfunding —meaning the money will only be obtained if we meet the 100% of the goal— your support is essential.
In addition, along with the book you will get some extra gifts to decorate your house or give away, which will be sold separately later on.
**PLEASE NOTE THAT FOR INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING YOU MUST MAKE TWO 'PURCHASES':
1 - THE 'INTERNACIONAL SHIPMENT FEE' EXTRA
2 - THE BOOK**
How did this book come about?
A few years ago, when I divorced my son's father, I had a very hard time. To overcome it, I began to do some "Gratitude practices" every night that helped me feel better.
At that moment my son Ramiro was two years old, and little by little, every night when I put him to bed, I began to talk to him about all the things I felt grateful for.
Thus, after a few weeks, this Gratitude Exercise was established as something I would recite him to sleep every night. Ramiro would say: "Mom, can we 'do' Gratitude?"
Three years later, at Ramiro's school we were asked to do some special activity in class before Christmas and I decided to put together a small homemade book with this exercise and some illustrations. I thought it was a good idea to share something so nice with other kids.
Some friends saw the book and loved it and later talked me into publishing it.
A madness and a DREAM that can come true THANKS TO YOU!
Destiny of the contributions to this campaign
Money will be mainly destined to pay the printing of 400 copies.
In addition, there will be a percentage for the Verkami platform and fees for the Bank.
And finally, the value of the 'extra' rewards —gifts aside from the books— and their shipping costs (Mainland & Balearics).
And of course all of the taxes (printing, Verkami, Bnaks, rewards and shipping costs).
Please, if you have any difficulty in making payment by credit card, you can contact me and we will find a solution.
What will happen if we exceed our goal :)
If we all surpass the goal, my DREAM is to PRINT MORE BOOKS!!
REWARDS and EXTRAS of the campaign
I plan to send the book to PRINT in mid-September.
October 1st 2017, in the GREMIAL Fair of ALARÓ (Mallorca), I will run a stand where I'll present and sell the book and those of you who live in Mallorca will be able to collect your rewards personally. :)
The delivery/shipping of the rewards will take place between September 25th and October 10th, 2017.
I'm a designer speciallized in Editorial Design and I've worked on the design on many published books.
In the past few months I've worked for several clients that have self-published their books —something that has encouraged me to follow the same path.
The book will be 40 pages long and the size will be 17 x 21 cm. Softcover.
You can visit the project's website: gratitudebook.online
And also my professional webpage.
I also have a professional profile on the Reedsy Platform, of international publishing services.
THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND FOR BELIEVING IN THIS PROJECT!!
