Eggie and I want to thank you because since I got the New Work Grant from the Bronx Council on the Arts, it has been a non stop road. I decided to go for the Kickstarter campaign to self-publish the book, and we made it!
It has been months of hard work, illustrating, editing, learning about many things I had no idea in order to print the book. Creating a whole marketing campaign and harassing many people to pre-buy the book. But all that work payed off: Many people believed in me and this crazy idea and supported me all the way.
The book is on a beautiful exhibition at the Bronx Library Center, the printed books are on their way, and I hope to get them on time so everyone can read them for the Holidays.
From the bottom of our hearts. THANK YOU
Last Friday we had the opening reception of the first exhibition of the book. I printed the Spanish version with subtitles in English. It was great to see people I haven't seen in a while and show everyone on what I've been working so hard lately! Thank you to everyone who made it and to the library because those women are incredible.
