Help make Judy Horacek’s New Cartoon Book a Reality!

In one hour it will be 24 hours times 5 since I launched this campaign to raise the money to selfpublish a new book and it’s going really well, $9285, which is 67% of my goal.  I’m really grateful to everyone who has pledged, from the smallest to the greatest amount.   Thank you all!  Supporters with a special shoutout are Liz Telford, … more »
