Crowdsourcing Mornings: Peppercorn Mill

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Peppercorn Mill is a rhyming story about a little mouse who has a dream to make his very own rainbow.  It’s a tale about believing in yourself, told through Mouse’s adventures at Peppercorn Mill, with descriptions of the changing of the seasons, the whimsy of colours, and ultimately, the inspiration and magic of having a dream.

The funding goal I’ve chosen is primarily to cover the printing costs of the book, but there are a few other costs I had to take into consideration. The funding will cover:

  • Hardcover editions of Peppercorn Mill, with dust jackets. The book has approximately 44 pages in total (page count to be confirmed in final layout and formatting stages, upon Kickstarter completion)
  • Shipping the books from the printer, to my home in NYC
  • Printing costs for the additional rewards: bracelet components, posters, postcards, bookmarks
  • Packing supplies, eg boxes, tape. (actual shipping costs will vary depending on the backer’s location)
  • Kickstarter fee

As of August 22nd, this project has raised $2,500 of their $5,500 goal. This project has 9 days left to raise the $5,500 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $10, you will get one eBook.  For a pledge of $25, you will get one hardcover book.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
