14 March 2013

From GalleyCat:

An 11-year-old writer named Lauren raised more than $5,500 on Kickstarter to self-publish her first book, The Clown That Lost His Funny. She will use the money to cover the costs of print production and commissioning an illustrator.

Lauren working hard on outlining the book.

  1. P.G.

    There was me thinking that Kickstarter type projects were about to decline.

    Now we’ve got this kid, and Veronica Mars film project blowing the doors off.

    I won’t be applying for the role of Nostradamus anytime soon.

  2. I backed her. She’s in my hometown, and she’s adorable.

  3. Awww what a cool kid! Hey Lauren I’ll illustrate your book for you :)

  4. @ Lynn – that’s amazing that she’s in your home town. Such a small world!

    This is too cute. Good for her! When I was 10, I would never have thought to do something like this. :)

  5. Impressive. The world needs kids like her. She will go far.

  6. I’m usually afraid of clowns but I ‘m gonna make an exception in this case. What a great kid.
