Campaign successfully funded on: 11 Jul,2015
Have you ever listened to a certain music while reading just to create an atmosphere that would help you focus?
Were you ever reading and because of all the noise that's around you...you couldn't understand and you were no longer in the mood to read.
How many times were you reading something and you felt it was talking about you and saying what you've always wanted to say...and you wished you could communicate with the writer?
With a new way of thinking and a new vision, we adopted the idea of presenting an integrated artwork in the form of a printed book that is distinguished by its ability to cope with modern developments and consisting of some new ideas.
· Project description:a high quality book, form and context, has a clear vision and message through raising the value of a book and how much it values the reader’s mentality. The writings are characterized by its unique style, which combines different forms of literature (Prose, Poetry, Short Story and Thoughts). It also contains some ideas and techniques that will make it the closes things to a smart book. Aside from listening to musical tracks which are composed especially to be related with writings. This is why a team of more than (12) people from different fields and exceptional experiences has gathered to work on making this project successful.
· Purpose of the project:it’s not just about publishing the book and waiting for its success or not. It’s more about believing in a message and wanting to lift the community’s culture and raise the value of books.
· Work plan and ideas:
· Musical team:
· A big team of professional music players guided by a music composer for the book
· Creating an integrated vision for all the writing and identifying each track’s features according to the sense of the writings
· Creating a unique musical track for the whole book to be used as an advertising tool for the book
· Voice Recording for some of the writings on their tracks
· Technical team:
· Creating an application for the book on play store which is registered on after purchasing the book using a serial number to activate it
· The application contains all the music pieces of the book in their sequential order
· Linking the application with all our social networking pages (Facebook – Twitter – YouTube – Instagram) and sending all our updates and ideas through them
· Using the device’s camera to identify the page and play the related track
· Using the “Virtual Reality” system on the whole book, to experience the book as a three dimensional story with its own sound effects ( in case we reach the second milestone )
· Marketing team :
· The team works on carrying on and accomplishing the marketing plan through all its levels (Social Media – Spreading – Multi-Media)
· The actual advertising for the book will start (6-7) weeks prior to the publishing and during that time the team would work on bringing together fans and followers of the project
· Participating in a huge number of events, conferences, parties, Media and press interviews
· Running advertising campaigns (videos, activities, etc...)
· Editing team:
· Reviewing and assorting all the writings
· Laying all the proposed ideas for dividing the book and arranging the writings
· Defining the final form of presenting the book.
The beginning & the
The project of a book. It was a dream and just an idea. I've been writing for more than 5 year. I've written about many different topics and with time my writings started to mature, and it also started to spread. Lately I've published some of my writings in more than one electronic magazine and one printed paper. When the idea started to become an integrated work that can be released into a project. I found out that one of the current problems is the quality of the written word on both the form (quality of printing + material used in presenting the book) and the context (language + concept), so we wanted to present it as an integrated artwork that suits the reader, respects his mentality and satisfies our aspirations and dreams at the same time.
This is why for more then 3 months I assembled a team and we've been working on a plan and forming ideas to allow us to present a unique reading experience and a new trend.
A new type of literature that combines all of its different types, it's about a state of mind maybe a situation that you have been through or something that you have seen happen to someone else. Maybe it's a situation that you wanted to talk about but words always fell short and you couldn't. This is why the true value of the book is not in just publishing it and releasing it in the market, it's about communicating and bonding with each other afterwards it's about creating a community.
The book is written in proper Arabic and vocalization.

Why is it called "The Book”?
Each of our lives is a book, every day is a page in it and each hour is another line written carefully in it. And because a book's title reveals the contexts of it, our context is the book itself with it's whole experience and writing. we are against trying to direct you or try to make you see from our perspective we want you to Read, Live, Think and Decide. We want you to understand the book from your point of view to see it the way you want to and need to... and of course this will differ from on to another. This is why we called it "The Book".
Current ideas: The different experience in the book is that when you buy it you will find a QR on the back cover that you scan with your smart phone's camera, and it links you to the book's application... register on the application with a serial number that you will find in your copy of the book and you can listen to all the tracks of the book that are each related to one of the writings, and this is how we are going to solve one of the main problems that readers face which is creating the perfect atmosphere for reading.
The app. would have all the new updates like the location of events, conferences, parties that we are participating in also our products which would appear in a notification. And any updates of the tracks will be uploaded on your application too.
As soon as you write in the serial number you will automatically be linked with our fan page, twitter, and our YouTube channel so we would always keep in touch with you.
The music team studies all the writings with us and everything is interpreted into a spirit that is adapted under the guide of a music composer.
If you just want to take an idea first about the application we opened three tracks for you as a free trial. So you can experience the feeling and decide if you want to buy the book or not.
Goal + value + team:
people are more directed to e-books nowadays and neglected the printed books, this is why we thought about bringing back the printed book that is somehow linked to the internet through an app.
Goal + value + team:
Zoomaal campaign has a
lot of targets:
new ideas always face the same problem of having no believers. None of the team members that's working on the book knew each other before they were brought together by believing in an idea. In a goal. By believing they could change something. This is why when we thought about funding us thought about different ways that fight the controlthat money holders might have. This is why we were more interested in the idea of crowd funding.
The idea behind zoomaalis that you support an idea and make it see the light and
turn from just being an idea into a reality.
Your support can help an idea live and let it be free from a restrictions and control that it might suffer from if it was funded any other way.
This is why we wanted to present something that we are proud of and something that we feel deserves your time and money. You can help us do that and this is one of the messages that we are presenting you today. If you have a dream don't make your whole effort on how to make it real, think as well how pursuing this dream will make you satisfied and how is it to respect people and add a value.
Work plan + future
as soon as we successfully finish the campaign we will start working on :
