Dear Maggie Fans,
Acclaimed narrator Tavia Gilbert has enthusiastically agreed to perform Maggie Vaults Over the Moon on Audiobook!
Tavia is a mega-star in the audiobook industry in New York City — An Olympic-caliber talent in her genre with more than 150 titles to her credit, she has been nominated six times for the Audie Award, which is equal to the Academy Award in her profession.
Her dramatic performance of the sport’s greatest novel will help raise awareness of pole-vaulting through the best audiobook publishing channels. That’s why I’m asking you to join me in a unique 30-day crowdfunding campaign, beginning March 1, 2014, on Indiegogo.
The campaign will run like an online pledge drive. I’m inviting camp owners and companies around the nation and the world to get involved. By donating PERKS to help attract donors in your region, you’ll put your club or business in the limelight, and help us reach our publishing goal of $3,000.
In exchange for your support, you will receive copies of Maggie Vaults Over the Moon to give away as Maggie Awards, and your camp will be featured on this blog.
A number of key leaders in the pole-vault community who believe in Maggie Vaults Over the Moon have already stepped up to support the project. (See below).
I’m confident that many more clubs and companies will get on board soon. I hope you will join them. Please contact me at GoTeamEnterprises@gmail.com, or through the contact page of this blog.
With your support, a truly inspiring story about the world’s greatest sport is destined to be heard.
Highest and Best,
Grant Overstake Author and Publisher, Go Team! Enterprises
MAGGIE’S CAMPAIGN SPONSORS INCLUDE:
VAULTER MAGAZINE has pledged annual subscriptions as PERKS to support the crowdfunding campaign to produce Maggie Vaults Over the Moon on audiobook.

Australian master artist, Phillip Carrero, the world’s greatest painter of pole-vaulters, has pledged signed posters of his beautiful new oil rendition of Maggie’s front cover to be used as PERKS for Maggie’s Audiobook Campaign.

RAISE THE BAR POLE VAULT CLUB
Coach Randy Bryant has pledged a summer camp spot at the Raise the Bar Pole Vault Club as a PERK for Maggie’s Audiobook Campaign. That means some lucky camper will be sharing the runway with Coach Bryant’s star pupil, Makayla Linebarger, the reigning National Jr. Olympic Champion, US Record Holder, and the top-ranked U-14 vaulter in the nation.
“Maggie is a true inspiration to everyone at our club,” Bryant said, adding that he is eager to lend his support for an audiobook version of the story.
TAILWIND POLE VAULT CLUB
In addition, Tailwind Pole Vault Club, coached by Doc Mark Breault, has stepped up to offer a summer camp slot as a PERK to support the project. That means some lucky camper from the Midwest will get to vault in the same awesome facility that inspired the novel, Maggie Vaults Over the Moon.
Fuzion Athletics has pledged a total of two summer camp slots; one at its facility in Kentucky, and one in Minnesota. The PERKS will attract vaulters from the Bluegrass region around Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky as well as the southern parts of Illinois, Indiana and Ohio, and also in Minnesota and western Wisconsin.
Shealy Athletics has pledged pole vault camp slots as PERKS to support the crowdfunding campaign. The pledge will help Coach Rusty Shealy attract vaulters from South Carolina and across the Southeastern United States.
