I always believe that it’s actually hard to run a Kickstarter project for a book because you don't have a lot of pages carefully edited by the time you go live. Also, there is so much text all over the internet, having more text isn't the most eye catching thing on the planet, especially if you want people to pitch in some coins for you to finalize such an extensive project, such as writing a book.
When I was working on This Year Will Be Different, I hired an illustrator because I once bought a book that I hated, but simultaneously also loved because it was so pretty. I hired an illustrator because I was, and I guess I am to this day, very nervous about my work.
Back then and even today, I thought that if people don’t enjoy my words, they might at least cherish the prettiness of the book(s)…Now, I absolutely love that each and every book has been carefully beautified, and I love even more that two of the three books have been carefully beautified by the wonderful Ewelina Dymek. I simply love, love, love her work!
I wanted to share the wonderful illustrations with you. I simply love them and I’m excited we were able to add a little learning to each of them. I guess it will give you some sense of what you’ll read about. Also, please let me know in the comments which interview you’d want to read next. I’ll make sure to share one more with you before this campaign’s over!
