Little Lamb Books KICKSTARTER Campaign Begins!
If you’ve been following Little Lamb Books for any length of time, you know that we publish fresh, entertaining, and faith-filled picture books, chapter books, and YA titles, including the award-winning young adult series Rise of the Anointed by Jason C. Joyner. The past four years has been exhilarating as we help families build legacies of literacy that not only encourage reading, but also inspire Godly values and a strong foundation of faith.
Little Lamb Books will turn five in September and we are facing some extraordinary circumstances. We wanted you to be among the first to hear about our exciting KICKSTARTER campaign that starts today, 30Tuesday, June 30, 2020. KICKSTARTER is a crowdfunding opportunity for small businesses, and we are launching this campaign in order to raise financial assistance for our Fall 2020, including our newest holiday titles The Christmas Color by Tori Higa and Cairo’s Christmas Journey by Janet L. Christensen, and our Spring 2021 catalog of titles, including our first ever deviotional tentatively titled 60 Days of Devotions for Children.
As a family-oriented business, we have been directly impacted by the COVID-19 shutdown and the ripple effect of bookstores being closed, manufacturing and distribution supply chains disrupted, and Amazon halting the purchase and shipment of new books. Our ability to continue selling books from our own online shop was also impacted due to shipping delays. Since The CARES Act didn’t cover all the small businesses like ours, we are now asking for YOUR help.
Little Lamb Books is proud of our family of authors (we are fifteen strong and growing) and our collection of fiction titles. We have eight books currently available and we have three releasing this year. We are also excited about the new titles already in production, including new picture books and the next book in our Teeny Sweeney chapter book series. As our amazing subscribers and friends, we invite you to join our KICKSTARTER pre-launch page here. There is a short explanation video and be sure to check out the fun rewards for pledging. You’ll be able to see all the details starting today, June 30th.
It’s important for us to reach 25% of our goal within 48 hours after the campaign launches. So, if you support what Little Lamb Books publishes and how we reach young readers with stories of kindness, courage, friendship, and sharing God’s love, you can help out by pledging to the campaign on the very first day, June 30. There are amounts ranging from $5 to $1000 and both tangible and digital rewards, which means there’s something for everyone.
I love this company, and as a small business hard hit by this pandemic, Little Lamb Books needs your voice and your monetary contribution to help us overcome the impacts of COVID-19. Your pledge will help create new stories for families and young readers now and in the future. Will you join us?
Thank you so much for joining with me to fight back against a virus that has stolen so much already.
