Synopsis

This middle-grade market, action adventure series begins for 13-year old girl, Coral who's mom disappeared when she was a toddler. Middle grade content with global focus on girl-child 'sheroes' are lacking in the market. Global understanding and citizenship, facing tremendous obstacles of greed and malice at every turn, girls... and boys as the series evolves, learn to work together toward a goal of one sustainable humankind on Earth.

On this blistering day in the midst of a record-breaking heat wave in NY, deeply held secrets of the past are disclosed to Coral, breaking open the shell of her cloistered upper class Manhattan reality, to reveal the mysterious truth of her mother Sophia’s disappearance so many years ago, dissolving into time as if it were only yesterday. A gift, neatly wrapped, at her doorstep becomes the first clue in an unfolding breathtaking global adventure transporting Coral to find her new teammates in some of the more remote corners of the world to fulfill her destiny. As ‘pathfinder’, Coral’s quest to find the others, will lead her to experience colorful cultural settings, perils and opportunities for inspiration all over the world.

2) Coral is full of brilliance and courage and she instinctively understands that the Ecomasters hold the key to the future of humankind on our planet, but, she does not always know how to engage with her peers and has very limited travel experience, resulting in a number of lighthearted blunders and cultural snafus along the way. The challenges faced by Coral, Hope, Angoori and Phonepasit are similar to the challenges of every reader. Girls, and boys all over the world today have a deep inner understanding for why they are here, but can use 'real-life' role models who make mistakes and get messy while getting the job done is key!

3) Donna L Goodman, author of Ecomasters has spent her life and career in service to Mother Earth and her Children. As a young girl herself in rural Connecticut, Donna explored forests and waterways and tried a time or two to dig her way to China!!! As an adult with more than 15 years as Environment focal person in water, sanitation and hygiene as well as climate change for UNICEF in more than 60 countries; experience founding and leading global non-profit organization, Earth Child Institute and in the Private Sector as Program Director of Swarovski Waterschool in 7 countries, as Executive Producer of Netflix film "Waterschool", her experience and passion to connect and help the children of the Earth to empower one another are her reason for writing ECOMASTERS.

Why support this book?

  • Middle grade fiction is in need of everyday female heroes that girls can see in themselvesn
  • Middle grade and young adult fiction are lacking a global perspective. Most superheroes have 'superhuman' abilities. The Ecomasters have abilities that all kids can aspire to, 'real-life training centers on each continent are part of the long range vision for the franchise.
  • Endorsers could include best selling authors, child leaders themselves, who have gone beyond expectations themselves and many others.
  • UNICEF, UNESCO, WaterAid and Nature conservancy are potential sponsors and backers
  • Reader market is 2.2 billion children under the age of 18 on planet Earth and beyond.

Similar titles

  • Harry Potter, JK Rowling, (1 September 1998) similar series in terms of action and adventure, however, all characters are from one country and not very different from one another culturally. Magic is considered otherworldly. Ecomasters brings children from all parts of the world together in a common quest.
  • Percy Jackson, Rick Riordan. (1 July 2005) Male heroes based in mythic situations brought to contemporary world. Ecomasters are girl powered and 'magic' comes from the elements of the Earth element
  • I Am Malala, Malala Yousafzai. (9 October 2013) Girl Hero with strong voice for girls. Malala's story is singular, she is one standing up from the crowd, whereas the Ecomasters are many girls working together to be stronger and more effective.

Audience

This books is written for adolescent girls and boys in small and large communities, wealthy and less developed countries all over the world.

Advance praise

I have had quotes, from UNICEF, Earth Child Institute and several young readers, but hope to appeal for more as a result of the crowdfunding

Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.
