Maggie’s Audiobook Campaign has begun!
Preparations for this unique crowdfunding event went off without a hitch. So many sponsors have stepped up to help Maggie’s voice be heard. Now it’s up to you, because most of all, we need your help to make Maggie Vaults Over the Moon on audiobook a reality.
The story of a gutsy, grieving, farm girl who overcomes tragedy and soars to new heights as a pole-vaulter has become an instant classic in the pole-vault community. Participants, coaches, parents and followers of the sport have embraced Maggie’s story as their own. The sponsors who’ve stepped up to provide rewards and incentives to help encourage you to join the campaign, they all have been touched personally by the story and want the world to hear it. It will be good for the sport of pole-vaulting. It will be good for the world.
Tavia Gilbert is a wonderful person and a great talent in the audiobook industry, with accolades that include six Audie Award nominations (the equivalent of the Academy Award for audiobook performance). She has her choice of which books she wants to perform, and Maggie touched her heart:
“I am very proud to be a part of Grant Overstake’s Maggie Vaults over the Moon project. Grant has written an inspiring story of how a young girl uses her passion for a sport to cope with grief and loss, and today he has launched a crowd-funding campaign to raise money for the audiobook edition, which I will narrate and produce. Maggie Vaults Over the Moon has captured the attention of young athletes, parents, coaches, media, and people who care deeply about meaningful, well-told stories for young people. I invite you to check out the fundraising campaign and to contribute to the effort to produce the story in audio. Inspiring stories have an impact, and I’m honored to be a partner in the effort to bring this heartfelt story to new audiences.” — TAVIA GILBERT
