Charlie and the Bees and Waffle the Wandering Cat

Hello. My name is Hayley and I have created two children's books called Charlie and the Bees and Waffle the Wandering Cat. I have written, illustrated and designed the books over the last eight months. I aim to have the books printed within the next few months and I hope to raise the money for printing on Pledgeme. 

I am self-publishing the books and all money raised will go towards printing copies. I have self-published two books in the past, an educational book and my first children's book. I had great experiences both times and have sold nearly every copy printed. I personally find pledgeme a great process, it enables me to pre-sell books which pays for printing. Every aspect of these books has been created and produced in New Zealand.

Charlie and the Bees - Children's Book

Charlie and the Bees is an educational book about Bees and Honey. It is the first book in a series which aims to teach children where food comes from and basic sustainable living practices. Charlie and the Bees aims to teach children where honey comes from, how it is made, why bees are important, and the great role bees play in nature. This book educates children about bees through a fun and easy to read story. The book also inlcudes a list of '15 Honey Bee facts' which is located in the back of the book.  

Waffle the Wandering Cat - Children's Book 

Waffle the Wandering Cat is a book about New Plymouth. The book centers around a large ginger cat called Waffle who likes to travel. Waffle travels to New Plymouth and expores the mountain, Pukekura Park, the walkway and much more. New Plymouth is a beautiful place and this book aims to display and encourage children to explore these interesting places themselves.

Below are some illustrations and samples I have recieved from the printers. Please note that the final result will have slight differences to the sample copies as I have made changes.  

Thank you and I hope you enjoy the books!

Hello

Thank you so much to everyone who has pledged! Your support has made it possible for these books to be printed. 

Sorry I havn't emailed sooner, I have been moving. I thought I should send out an update on the books progress and when you will receive yours in the post. Currently the books are having some last details changed and updated at the printers, I am soon to receive hopefully what will be my last samples. This should take another week and after that the books will be ready to be printed! This takes about two weeks for me to receive the books and then I will send them out to you. 

I am very excited to be nearly finished these books and am looking forward to writing some more. This is my last Pledgeme so I also want to thank those who have supported me with Pledges for all of my books. They could not have been printed without support. 

Thanks again and I hope you like the books!

Kind regards

Hayley
