Mama’s Tales of Kanji – The Turtle’s Shell
Greetings to all humans – fellow brothers & sisters – and welcome to the Mama’s Tales of Kanji Project. The Mama’s Tales of Kanji is a series of African-themed folklore storybooks, full of wisecracks, fun, age-old wisdom, fantasies and exciting adventures. These stories have been written by myself - Vincent Eke, and currently are in ready-to-publish forms. My books have everything you think an African story book should have plus more. There is an array of animal and human characters setting off on adventures that are full of wit, intrigue, drama, humour, suspense and a lot of Grandmama’s advice that you thought was silly at the time until it made sense to you later.
The books come with beautiful illustrations of the stories and characters that take children (and the child in you) into another world. These are the stories with a bite your mama never told you at bedtime. Imagine reading the wonderful and exciting tales of the wise old turtle, the reason why the lions are the kings of the jungle and why it’s impossible to find a needle in a haystack?
The black and white illustrations have been beautifully crafted so that children can have much fun colouring them in themselves. This makes them an active part of the creative process of the stories.
In return for helping me to achieve this goal of publishing my story books, I have put together once in a lifetime list of exclusive goodies to give out to each of you as a thank you for your help in funding this project. These goodies are for you only. Feel free to invite your friends to donate and become part of the creative process while the project is still live.
Once published, all of my books will be available to buy and download from publishing website - Lionpen Publishing and from your online eBook stores (including Amazon, iBookstore, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Sony and Kobo). If you’d like to preview a sample chapter of my book visit website http://www.lionpen.com
The plan is that the hard copy design layout will be done locally, printed by Lightning Source and be readily available in Amazon and other major bookshops in time.
Delivery dates: digital rewards will be sent out as soon as they're ready, so you'll receive your downloadable eBook of the first title before general release. Hard copies of the first book and cover art will go out together as soon as they are ready (I’m hoping for December 2012.)
If you have any queries about this project please contact me. I thank you with a full heart of love for visiting, reading, watching and donating to make our dreams a reality!
May the creative force be with you!
