Meet SNURTLE!

Hi, my name is Baruch Inbar and I’m an artist and a writer from Los Angeles. SNURTLE is my first children’s book that I’ve written and illustrated. I have been dreaming for a long time to publish my first children’s book, and now it’s time has come!

About The Book

SNURTLE is the story of a very unusual character who is born to a mom snail and a dad turtle, into a strict and rigid society that does not embrace diversity and uniqueness. Therefore, SNURTLE and his parents are forced to leave their home and life behind, and embark on an epic adventure on their search for a new home and a loving community, that will love and accept them the way they are. Will they succeed? You can find out when you read the book!

I wrote this book, because I felt that there is a little SNURTLE deep inside each and every one of us – that part that wants to be loved and accepted for our uniqueness, no matter how strange or weird we may think we are…A message that goes well for both children and adults.

The book features spectacular 22 full color illustrations, and is written in whimsical, humorous and fun rhymes that the entire family will enjoy, including the in laws! ;0)

What I Offer & What You Get

I am offering you the opportunity to contribute and take part in the first LIMITED edition printing of the book in English, of 10,000 copies. I am committed to printing this book with the highest integrity and best quality I can! This first hard cover edition run of SNURTLE will be printed in the U.S, on a high quality, long lasting and durable paper.

My printing costs are quoted at $5.3 per book - which comes to total of $53,000 + tax (appx. $57,800) to print 10,000 copies of SNURTLE, on top notch art quality, archival hard cover 12” x 12” format. The rest of the funds that will remain after paying Indiegogo their share (appx. $5,000 fee) will be used to cover the costs of mailing and other expenses of the perks disbursement, promotion and online marketing of the book, sales and distribution and of the book online as well as other avenues such as book fairs, festivals and tradeshows.

If you look at the perks, you are getting a share and great investment in a really cool intellectual peoperty that will grow expedentially and turn into a global phonomena. Whether you contribute $5, or more, you are getting really cool stuff signed by yours very truly! 

But here is the biggest perk you get if you contribute $25 or more:

This is the ONLY first edition of the book that will be ever printed, numbered and signed by me. Once the book gets momentum, there is the likelihood that it will be picked up by a major publisher and reprinted in mass production. If you are one of the lucky ones who will get a first edition signed copy by me, you will own a valuable art collectible piece forever that will be worth much more down the road. A pretty good investment don't you think?...

What's Next?

This is just the beginning! The funding will be used to get the books out there into the world, and provided that we succeed at getting over-compensated, the extra money will be used to print additional books in other languages (already translated into Hebrew and Russian), and even turn SNURTLE into an interactive iPad book, animated film, online game, plush toys, clothing line and other cool stuff!

My commitement is to offer YOU, my dear backers a first exclusive preview and opportunity to take part in any new possibilities that will spring out of the book, and that way you will continue to grow your shares in this property. We are ALL making this happen together, and I am honored to give you a share in the success of SNURTLE as it grows!

Also, as stated in my video: after fulfilling the perks to you all, for each and every book I wil sell, I will donate one book to a foster child through the BLESS THE CHILDREN Project charitable foundation. This is super important to me, because I was a foster child myself, and I know how important the message of SNURTLE is for these kids...

I thank you SO MUCH for your support, and I wish you all: have a SNURTLEful day!

Cheers-

~Baruch Inbar.
