OK, kids, this is my kickstarter project. I’m the writer of this series that was conceived by Italian artist Rachele Aragno. Rachele was introduced to me by my good friend, Dave Ryan (mastermind behind the War of the Independents), who is also acting as Art Director on the project. I’m the writer. I build the story of the Owlgirls on Rachele’s concept, and have crafted a five-story arc to introduce them.
The first issue is completed, the second issue has been written and is now being illustrated, and I’m starting on crafting the third story now. We have until September 1, 2013 to raise $3,463.00 to get the first issue in print. There are all sorts of rewards for people who assist us in getting this project to market.
For those of you who might not be familiar with Kickstarter, it is a crowd-sourcing, fund-raising venue that allows Independent creators to seek backing from numerous friends and family in small amounts — which is actually easier than attempting to seek larger sums of money from individual backers. The way this works is that we have “X” amount of time to raise “Y” amount of money to fund our project. If we do that, it is off to market. If, however, we fail to raise the required amount of money, then the project is over and no one who pledged money has to come up with that funding.
Needless to say, we are highly confident that we will raise that money and we will get the Owlgirls published.So click over to the link ad start your pledging! (Oh, and thanks!)
