More Zap 4 Book Deal

Michelle and Jane

More Zap Productions & Management is thrilled to announce the 4 book deal we closed with Little Brown, Hachette on behalf of our client, Patrice Karst, author of The Invisible String. This book, originally published by an indie publisher, DeVorss, is now going to be revamped, with a fresh look and brand new illustrations in paperback, and released in multiple languages around the globe.

In addition to being recommended by such notable readers as Anthony Robbins, The Invisible String has become a favorite for adults and children alike and recommended consistently by therapists for children dealing with loss of a relative, parent, pet and foster siblings. Military families, Churches and Synogogues have been sharing this book, which has become successful by word of mouth virally.

Patrice KarstAmazon has it rated in the top categories for separation anxiety, healing and grief. Now Patrice will have 3 sequels in the Invisible String universe. Patrice is also writing her adult memoir, additional children's books, and gift books with inspirational messages. She is a speaker and avid story teller, sharing her books with libraries, hospitals and counseling centers from Australia to South America.

In addition, the original hard cover book will be featured in the motion picture, "Instant Family," produced by Paramount Studios with Mark Wahlberg in the leading role; in a scene where Octavia Spencer, playing the therapist tells Foster kids they are connected by Heart Strings. Multiple projects are in the works with More Zap and various partners to develop animated and live action media content and merchandise based on The Invisible String. Stay tuned....
