About

My name is, Bob Holt. I was the co-creator of “hoops&yoyo,” a pair of animated characters featured on Hallmark greeting cards, hundreds of e-cards, and TV specials. I was retired from Hallmark in 2015 which was way too early for a father who had two daughters  entering college. For the past 4 years, I've been freelancing while also caring for my mother who moved in with us. My mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's shortly after moving in. It's been a challenging few years but that's the way life goes. Always full of surprises.
Earlier this year I was lucky enough to get picked up by The Prospect Agency. The Prospect Agency is an independent literary agency based in the New York City area. My rep is Rachel Orr. Rachel is a highly respected book rep who I feel lucky to have representing me. So far we’ve been able to sell a book to Random House which will come out in the Spring of 2021. We have another book being considered by Scholastic. This book is about a young girl who has a grandmother with Alzheimer's. I wanted to tell a story about a grandparent who’s changing due to the effects of Alzheimer's and the never-fading love of the granddaughter. I’m hoping this book will help parents and children deal with those with memory loss and bring more awareness about Alzheimers.

What am I looking for? I’m looking for short term financial support as I learn this industry, become more efficient and get a number of books in the pipeline. Each book idea my rep and I submit has a large number of hours attached to it. Just to get Rachel's buy-in on a book idea is a feat. Once Rachel thinks an idea has promise we start the the hard work of editing the manuscript and art. Rachel serves as my editor at this early stage. Only after we think we have a strong package do we send it out to publishers. No half-baked ideas.

All pledges, small or large, will be very much appreciated by the entire Holt family. I hope you'll consider joining me on this journey.
Cheers!
Bob

STAYING HEALTHY
This money will offset the increase in our health insurance cost and medical bills. Concentrating on creating new children's books will be far less stressful if I know some our basic needs are met.
