From teacher to author - bible stories for children

I have recently received a contract from a publishing company but need to raise some funds to buy 300 copies of my book as a contribution to costing. As I am a 'new author' I am classed as a big risk, but I hope to be a huge risk that pays off.

I am a primary school teacher and new Mummy. Whilst enjoying my maternity leave with my beautiful baby boy, I have rediscovered my love of writing. Firstly, I began by writing a blog for my son to read when he is older. But my love for writing blossomed and as I began to read children's stories to my baby, I decided I was going to try and fulfil a lifelong dream of mine and publish a book for children.

I have written a mini-series of (mostly) well-known bible stories written from a different and unexpected perspective. The publisher believed firstly in my one story (The Christmas Star...and baby Jesus) which then turned in to a mini-series now consisting of 10 stories, amounting to around 18000 words. 

In addition to this I am also writing a book for children that aims to tackle childhood anxiety in schools. Mental health is a topic very close to my heart and the best Christmas present for me this year would be to get one step closer to making this dream a reality. From teacher to author...and Mummy/Wife in between. 

As the saying goes, every little helps! 

Thank you for believing in me, I hope to not disappoint you.

    This is Graham from Books from Start to Finish. I looked around the web to see what you were up to and found this.

    I asked you to get in touch via an Upwork message, but it was a bit vague because they don't like you adding email addresses! I have some ideas that could be of mutual benefit.

    Please get in touch - 

    Good luck and thanks!
