Last you heard from me I was launching a mysterious quicksilver beast called a Kickstarter for a comic book I wrote and created, REBURN.
It's gone well. Incredibly well and I have many of you to thank - so thank you.
If you haven't backed it and would still like to, follow this LINK.
The KICKSTARTER closes at 9AM PST on FRIDAY, but really do it before then, if you'd like to back it.
Quick Explanation of Kickstarter: There are lots of tiers on Kickstarter. Check them out. And now, if you buy the physical copy our book for $15 + shipping you will also get lots of FREEBIES including a Metallic REBURN Bookmark, a PDF copy of Turner Family Terrors Issue #1, 2 REBURN Stickers, A 'Poppy' 5x7 Bookplate, REBURN Magnet, Audio Commentary and a 4 page PDF preview of ISSUE #2.
Many of you backed this project which feels frikkin' fantastic, because I get to keep doing something I love, writing and creating a world where a woman, our main character MAY, finds the pieces of her soul and does her best to put them back together, while throwing fireballs and doing various other badass things. Pretty much, it's my life story.
We launched our KICKSTARTER with a goal of $7K. We discussed this number quite a bit because if you don't make your goal, you don't get any of your money AND Kickstarter is forever. The campaigns, whether they are successful or not, are saved for posterity.
$7K covered the art (paying the artists and letterer) and printing costs of ISSUE #1, but not the shipping costs or Kickstarter Fees, but we made enough for that, YES! And enough to cover all our EXTRAS and get well into ISSUE #2. JOY! When a person sees a number like $19K it might feel like a lot of money, and it is, but I want all our backers to know that the money goes right back into making the book and expanding the world. We won't be sipping Dom on Friday, we'll be doing the same things as before but with the shot of confidence that comes from having HUNDREDS of people care about what you're doing.
It feels pretty damn FANTASTIC.
All the virtual hugs,
*Please forward this to anyone you think might even be mildly interested in REBURN or ME.
