Are you anxious about taking a child with autism to Walt Disney World? Special Mouse – Unofficial Disney Parks and Travel for Your Special Needs
Special Mouse – Unofficial Disney Parks and Travel for Your Special Needs

Special Mouse Podcast

Are you anxious about taking a child with Autism to Walt Disney World?

Trust me, I can help you!

Hmm. Well now, that’s a pretty big promise. Really, why should you trust me? You may not even know me!

Perhaps you are new to the Special Mouse Podcast. That’s okay; there are lots of people out there who are just discovering podcasts — online talk shows on-demand.

Perhaps you’ve seen Tweets and Facebook posts and Pinterest pins about a fundraising campaign to help somebody named Kathy publish a Walt Disney World travel guide for families with autism and you think to yourself,Anyone can self-publish a book these days. Sure, it sounds like a great idea, but she’ll make TONS of money once the book is published! Why is she asking people for money now, before the book is finished?”

I can see why you may be skeptical about pledging your hard-earned money, so I want to address your concerns if I can!

Here’s the basics:

  • I am writing a special needs travel guide that will help other families with autism.

  • Traditional publishers have rejected my queries, saying that the niche audience for this book will be too low for them to make a profit.

  • Self-publishing a book does cost money, especially if you are printing one that includes pictures, and if you want it professionally edited and formatted.

  • I want to give people the best quality book I can, and to offer it in both digital and print formats.

  • I don’t have the money to do this. (There, I said it!)

 

Kickstarter is basically a way for me to raise capital for the project up-front; backers will receive many Disney- and Autism-related “rewards” for their pledges (including the book itself). And, honestly, unless you are a New York Times bestselling author, writers do not make a lot of money from their books. I am not in this for the money! After all, I’ve been giving away free content and advice on the podcast for almost three years now!

 

5 cents please

 

 

So, I will say it once more: Trust me, I can help you! Or your friend, or your neighbor, or your family member who is planning a Walt Disney World vacation with a child on the Spectrum.

Still not sure? Well, you can always get to know me better by listening to a few episodes of the Special Mouse podcast. Or, you can listen to what a few of my listeners have to say, below. And you can always reach out to me directly via the message feature on the Kickstarter page. I urge you to read more about the book project there!
