Have you noticed how nearly all picture books contain only illustrations of babies being bottlefed? Whenever the storyline involves a baby being fed, out comes a bottle. My two year old loves books and reads a lot, but we've never once come across a book with images of breastfeeding, which I think she would enjoy. I am hoping to address this imbalance by self-publishing a series of books. I know there are only very few out there already.
I can receive some funding for this if I show some letters of support from potential customers. Please help!! you can just copy and paste the template letter so it's really easy.
The series will include a book describing the journey of a breastfeeding mother and child from infancy onwards, and a different book focusing more on helping an older toddler/child wean, offering a little gentle encouragement and reassurance for a child who is aged one, two, three, four. There will also be a story book that isn't focused on breastfeeding, but that features positive nursing images.
I would be so happy if anyone could help me by sending me an email or private message of support containing your name and email address at the top. I will put the names of all the people who write to me in a raffle and send the winner the finished books for free.
All you have to say is that you like the idea and you would be interested in buying one of the books. It is not in any way a commitment to actually buying the book, and I promise I won't ever send you any emails trying to sell you things.
You could use this template;
I (name) am an advocate of breastfeeding and I really like the idea of making a children's picture book containing positive images of breastfeeding. I would be interested in buying such a product online, as long as the illustrations and storyline were appealing to me and it was affordable.
Thank you so very much : )
