About Bella Shaikh

Welcome Friends. I am Bella Shaikh; 
children's books illustrator, aspiring writer and creative commons enthusiastic. 
My idea is simple: I want create picture books for children, and give it away for FREE

Why should you become my Patron?
By becoming my patron, you will be supporting my work so that I can publish these free kids books and reach as many children as possible. I am asking you to support me for as little as  $1 per book. You can choose the amount you want to contribute and you will only be charged when the project is completed. You can cancel or amend your contributions anytime. 

The Next Project will be Stick's Adventure
Stick's Adventure it's a picture book about pursuing your dreams. 
Help me make this project come true, signed up today and become my patron!
Where is the Free Book?
I have already completed one project sponsored by patrons: Stick's Masterpiece
A inspirational rhyming book about challenges and achievements.
Download Stick's Masterpiece for free | PDFFlickr |

Or watch the read along video below:

Why am I here?
I am hoping to publish one book per year. You will only be charged once the book is completed. When I post updates, you will receive an email to let you know. If you wish to only support one project only, you can cancel your patronage after you receive an receipt confirmation from Patreon.
With your support, I will create a read along video and a free digital version of my books. I am hoping to keep releasing these books as creative commons. I am making my books available on Amazon and Kindle at very low costs, any profit made from these will be used to create more content.  
I have decided to create in this manner so that I can be sponsored directly from you guys. Being supported via a community of friends means my work can be available to all for free.
