02 Dec A Note About Scrak
Tim and I wrote Scrak four years ago. I’ve been so scared to publish the book. What if nobody wants it? So many other people publish children’s books hoping to be seen and to have a positive influence on children’s literature. What is our goal for releasing a physical copy of the book four years later?
Tim actually called me two months ago and was wondering when he could get a copy of the book. I’ve actually failed to share final projects with collaborators in the past and I didn’t want to repeat that. I wanted to come through for Tim. I want Tim to see his drawings and his ideas inside a hardcover book. Tim has had many ups and downs in his life. I would like to create an “up” moment for him. I would like him to have a moment of satisfaction. I want him to be able to call himself a published author. I love seeing Tim feel happy. It makes my wife happy. It makes me feel happy. It makes our entire family feel happy.
It makes me feel like a whole person to see Tim feel like a whole person. And my hope is that it will motivate us to write more books and to tell more stories about Tim’s life. Who knows what exciting details we will uncover hidden deep inside his mind. I also hope it will inspire people to tell their stories. Everyone should be able to write a children’s book with all the tools that are available today.
