Hello, this is Deborah Krueger, author, gratitude coach and motivational speaker. I am asking you for a financial contribution to help me publish my children's book:"The Red Pencil, a Dragon’s Tooth, and the Lost Treasure: A Gratitude Club Adventure." This is a book that can help kids deal with the challenges of growing up fast in the real world.

What critics are saying:

"We live in an era when our youngsters experience high levels of stress — the effects of bullying, depression, suicide attempts and completions - more than ever before. As adults, we have a responsibility to provide children with viable options … and hope."

"Deborah Krueger has provided this perfect story to do just that. 'The Red Pencil, a Dragon’s Tooth, and the Lost Treasure' will delight and encourage youngsters to choose positive options in difficult times.”

~ Anna Unkovich, co-author with Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen, “Chicken Soup for the Soul in the Classroom.”


"I still feel this fits the 9-12 (standard middle grade) level best. At the same time, yes, the concepts are suitable for the older audience categories, which are upper middle grade/preteen at 10-12 and even YA at 13-18."

"Your project also fits several other important trends in middle grade that are making properties like yours — with a message that extends beyond the story — extraordinarily in demand. And the foreign publishers have been clamoring for years now for middle grade."

~ Laine Cunningham, Publishing Consultant, Quoted on CNN and Media Bistro, Winner of five national awards. www.WritersResource.us
