Ember's Dream Illustrated Read-Along Storybook Project
« on: February 10, 2024, 12:37:11 PM »
Does anyone remember those read-along storybooks with the book and cassette tapes that they used to sell back in the day?

I was thinking about them last night for some reason, which led to me remembering the Ember's Dream cassette that came with the star version of Baby Ember.

As a child I loved listening to the story, but I was always kind of bummed that the tape never came with a book too.

I'm an artist/writer. And I think I have the G1 Hasbro art style down pretty well. I'm attaching a sample of some blank pony drawings I made a few months ago.

So, I'm wondering, if I were to create an Ember's Dream read-along illustrated storybook, would anyone be interested in supporting that as a project?

I would love to make an actual printed book if possible, but I would definitely need some financial backing for that, because you have to pay to get something printed up front-- unless maybe I do it as a Print On Demand book, but that's usually more expensive for people to purchase (like, usually double the cost of a typical book, especially if it has full-color illustrations). But maybe I could open up a Kickstarter or something like that?

Of course I wouldn't put the MLP logo on the book, but I think it could be a cool fan-supported project for those of us "in the know", haha 🦄🌈✨

I'm a long-time community member (since 1998 but if you don't know me, that's okay, I'm not a big name but I've been around long enough to remember when we all used to post on and people sent money orders through the mail to pay for ponies because Paypal wasn't a thing yet👵👴). I'm also a long-time Top-Rated online seller (many of you have bought from Good Boy Toys over the years on eBay, Etsy, or Mercari). And I regularly post my art on my personal Facebook page, so I'm confident I have the work ethic and the responsibility to see the project through to its completion.

I'd love to hear people's thoughts about it. Is this something anyone else (besides me I mean 🤪) actually would want enough to support?
