Crowdsourcing Mornings: Little Platinum Books

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.

Our publishing company Little Platinum Books focuses on fun kids books with themes and stories that are crafted to be enjoyable for parents and grown ups.  We have the first book: How to Rob a Bank complete and ready for mass printing, Our second book: How to Wipe a Crime Scene written and going through illustration now. Each of our first six books will be published about one every month.

Combined, we have over 45 years of publishing experience in Magazine, Book, Audio Book, and News Print. Traditional publishers work great for a lot of projects, but having worked with publishers in the past, this time we wanted to work directly with you: the community. In doing so, we all have more latitude in the subjects for each book.  Between the two of us, we have also raised or are in the process of raising nine children with various levels of success. We have been there. There are so many stories we wish to share with our kids to foster conversation, play time and imaginative follies.  Little Platinum Books Mission Statement: Create fun books that will encourage reading for both kids and adults.

Printing of Seven books:

Several of the books are fantastic introductions to satire for your kids. Multiple books are fun educational trips, and How to Steal an Election shows how everyone running can be silly (don’t judge a book by its cover!)
