"WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO HAVE A BOOK ABOUT AN AFRICAN COUNTRY??"Our response is always - soon... Soon because frankly, sales beget more books and we are pretty new in the market. We thought more critically about this and came across a great site called IndieGoGo.com, global funding platform that allows the community to get involved in funding a project.
There is a outcry for more books representing African countries
There is a global funding platform just to help people in our position...
As such, the campaign for a story about Africa has developed. We started a campaign too and now we are celebrating it with our FIRST twitter party ever!
Join Us for a Passport to Africa Twitter Party!
We invite you to a ‘Passport to Africa Twitter party’ to help raise funds for a NEW children’s book about a country in Africa!
