A Special Announcement

This week, allow me to announce that my wife and I have decided to reprint our prize-winning children’s books, The Kingdom Tales Trilogy, and have mounted a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign to revise, re-illustrate, and republish the three books, Tales of the Kingdom, Tales of the Resistance and Tales of the Restoration. We are almost halfway to our goal of raising $22,500 and need a boost in our momentum so that we not only reach the goal but EXCEED it.

The first book of the three was launched some 30 years ago and has kind of lingered in the publishing hinterlands with a rabid and eager following. The rights have now reverted to us, the climate for self-publishing is ripe, and we are eager to give these books a new life as we are in our 7th decade and they are in their third.

Allegorical, illustrated in beautiful full-color glory, each a book for kids of all ages, these storybooks have a 5-star rating on Amazon.com, and we are mounting this campaign as a memorial to our son Jeremy, who died last November. The protagonist of these tales is the King (yes, there is a real King). Our goal was to have every reader fall in love (or fall in love again) with him.

There are two ways you can help. One, you can make a donation to Mainstay Ministries to the “Artist Fund.” For this you will receive a receipt but no product. Send a check via snail mail to:

Mainstay Ministries
Box 30
Wheaton, IL 60187

Or you can phone with a charge card donation:


Charge card numbers are not kept on file.

The second way is to become a Backer on the Kickstarter Web site. To do this, simply click here in order to go to the Mainstay webpage on Kickstarter. For this you will receive the designated product for which you sign up based on your donation level. This campaign ends on August 5th. If we don’t reach our goal, no one is charged what they have pledged.

The concept behind Kickstarter is that people become Backers by signing up on the Web site with what are really pre-orders for the books. This allows creative but underfunded people to have a chance at launching their ideas. Well, we’re creative and we have always been UNDERFUNDED! We think we qualify. Thank you for considering getting involved.
