Can you help local author’s Manx Bedtime Stories charity project?

Friday 24th June 2022 |

Local teacher-turned-author Rob Cowley is writing a brand new children’s tale for charity. Here’s how you can help him get it published.

“BLUE: A Manx Fire Engine Called Walter” is Rob’s latest follow-up to the similarly colourful “RED: A Manx Dragon Called Rufus” and “PINK: The Adventures of a Manx Fairy”, which was partly sponsored by Hartford Homes and raised funds for Breast Cancer Now (IoM).

The new book is currently being illustrated by talented 14-year-old artist Graiagh Smith with a tentative release date of November 2022.

On publication Rob will be aiming to raise £1000 for the Age Concern (IoM) Hardship Fund, a charity that helps to improve the health and well-being of older people on the Isle of Man.

To support the non-profit Manx Bedtime Stories Project, Rob has set up a JustGiving page to help cover the costs of publishing and printing, ensuring the chosen charity benefits from the maximum proportion of the book’s sales.
