FIRST EDITION PRINT RUN to fund reaching a global market

SQUIGGLY DOT is the first children's book written by the anagrammatic Thimmely Chase (an award-winning author under his real name in another genre). As New Zealand publishers seem unable to export New Zealand books, I have developed this strategy to reach the international market.

The funding will enable me to print a PRODUCTION PROTOTYPE limited edition of 100 books – each numbered, inscribed and signed by Thimmely Chase. 50 PRODUCTION SAMPLES will also be printed to send to publishers around the world. The intended outcome is publishing contracts in a number of countries.

The Indigo Digital printing will look 'just like a bought one' and, hopefully, create the cut-through required for potential publishers to evaluate its merits. E-publishing will be addressed after the hard copy version is in place.

Not so much a pledge as an investment 

The price for reward copies is about double the eventual expected retail price. If the offset printed version becomes a best seller the numbered prototypes will become collectable. If high-volume production does not happen the prototypes will be rare. Either way they could be a good investment.
