2nd Indie Picture Book Seeking Crowdfunding

Mom's Choice and Award-winning Author VS Grenier has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help complete the second book in the SugarPaw Adventure Indie Picture Book series featuring her lovable main character SugarPaw and his trust worthy babysitter Bonnie Whiskers.

BABYSITTING SUGARPAW, the first book in the series, won two awards (Silver Mom's Choice Award & 2011 LUW Silver Quill Award) and because of this, Grenier decided to take yet another one of her childhood memories and turn it into another adventure full of mischief starting SugarPaw and Bonnie Whiskers.

Contributors to the crowdfunding campaign will receive special insider perks. Contributors giving $25 will receive an 8" plush SugarPaw teddy, poster and Shout-Out of Thanks. Those contributing $35 will receive signed copy of book, Future Author pen, coloring pages and bookmark. Contributors giving $55 will receive signed copy of book, 8" plush SugarPaw teddy, coloring pages and bookmark. Those giving $100 will receive signed copy of book, 8" plush Sugarpaw teddy, Future Author pen, sugarPaw T-shirt, bookmark, and coloring pages.

Grenier has been working all this time on the book editing and going over artwork with illustrator Kevin Collier. As they come to the end of the KickStarter campaign launched to raise the funds to get the 2nd book printed, it has motivated them to make it even better.

The  crowdfunding campaign ends in 6 days - June 15th! As of now, we are still short of reaching the goal. If we fall short, we don't get any of the funding & have to start over. If you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, please do! Grenier and Collier hope you are as excited as they are to bring this fun and amazing book to life. We have a few more days to go, so let's hope for more support!

If you have already backed the project, THANK YOU! If you haven't had a chance yet, please try to get to it BEFORE June 15th!
