A lot has been going on not only with the book progress but as well with my own personal life. Many of you know that I am a mother to a soon to be teenage daughter who has a very active social life, lol. On top of all the other extra curricular she does, she plays on a lacrosse team that season started.
I am still getting used to our new schedule, and finding time to do all things that are important to us all.
I do have some exciting updates to share with you about the book. We are meeting with the printer tomorrow, we went through the scanning process of the illustrations and are now ready to start the official layout of the book!! I am so pleased with how they will look once printed! We also received our copyright last week!!
The next stage will take us through the next three weeks and then we will submit the layout for print, very exciting!
I know most backers have responded to the Kickstarter survey re – the name you want printed as the backer in the book, Thank you. If you haven’t had a chance please do so. We will need this information by May 8 in order to get organized for the printer. If we do not hear from you, the name given when you pledged will be the name used.
Take care and have a great couple of weeks!!
So, after 30 days (and 1 day to take it all in, lol) I am writing with exciting news! We have been successfully funded on our Kickstarter campaign and even surpassed our goal!!!
We are so grateful of all the support we have recieved, this truly was a group effort. Dreams are going to literally unfold into reality before us all into what I know will be one of the most wonderful experiences of our lives.
Please keep following us on our progress, we can’t wait for everyone to get Tooth Tales – Lucy’s Loose Tooth in your hands!

Today Tamil Culture included an article written by our own very talented Thadshiga Jayaseelan (editor and partner of Tooth Tales – Lucy’s Loose Tooth). They not only ran the article but it is the top article of the day!!
I encourage you to read this article as it focuses on our extremely talented illustrator Kannishaa Loganathan and highlights the importance of supporting and encouraging artists to follow their passion; even when it means veering off a more traditional path.
We are so glad to have Kannishaa on our team and I hope this article inspires other young Tamil artist to not just doodle quietly but to shine brightly like they were meant to!
