KickStarter: Harmony on the Ocean!


We Need Your Help!

Please help our KickStarter Project and help us to get Harmony on the Ocean made into a new children's book! 



We Need More Harmony! 

Harmony on the Ocean will be the 2nd book in a series covering the adventures of Harmony, who first discovered what it meant to care for animals and be a vegetarian inHarmony on the Farm.
Harmony on the Ocean will follow Harmony as she learns about the beautiful creatures in the ocean and the dangers they face from commercial fishing.  Harmony will come to understand the need to protect sea life and will decide to do her part by adopting a plant-based diet. 
This will be a beautifully colorful children's book filled with hope and illustrated by the Harmony on the Farm artist, Jess Yeomans

Where did the Idea Come From?

The idea for Harmony on the Ocean came from my visit to two aquariums that will remain nameless.  They each provided a valuable educational service, introducing the public to beautiful sea creatures and educating the public about habitat destruction.  However, it was disappointing to learn that each aquarium's restaurant/snack bar seemed to miss the spirit of their institution's teaching - each menu included fish! 
Following the mantra of "Be the change you wish to see in the world", Harmony will see the issue with eating her friends and will decide to adopt a plant-based diet.  Harmony will realize, as she did in Harmony on the Farm, that her food choices have a real impact on the world around her.

The Result!


The result of this KickStarter project will be a beautifully illustrated children's book following Harmony as she learns about marine life and marine habitats and deciding that she must adopt a plant based diet to help save the oceans. The book will be for sale along side Harmony on the Farm on Amazon.com.

Risks and challenges

Since this is the second Harmony book in the series, many of the difficulties that delayed the publishing of the first book, Harmony on the Farm (website design, book design, etc.) will be much easier this time.
As with all book development, there could be unforeseen issues that slow the project down but it is my goal to ensure this book is made!
