    I’m in love with this project! Seeking everyone and anyone with a soft spot for helping dreams come true to back this brilliant children’s book titled Rocko Rocket: Rocko’s Big Launch on Kickstarter! I can’t wait to have the first copy for my son, Rock! (What a perfect title!) Read below and watch the video here to learn more about this adorable children’s book that will hopefully not only launch Rocko but kickstart the series! 

    Even if you donate $5, $10 or $20, I am sure it will be greatly appreciated! But even more so, spread the word as well. After all, we’re all in this together! 

    From Rocko Rocket’s Kickstarter Page:

    We are seeking your support to “kickstart our Rocko Rocket project. After many years, we decided to go forward with our dream of publishing a children’s book series that kids and adults will love reading.  We think our character is inspiring, lovable, and unique. We have worked hard to prepare this project for success, and we hope we can count on your support. It costs ninety dollars to print one hard cover Rocko Rocket book.  In order to bring the cost down, we need to print 1,000 books or more. We need a minimum investment of $10,000 to self-publish 1,000 books. Please support and “kickstart” our vision.
