A short graphic novel written by Bucket Siler and illustrated by Frey Anya--inspiring, magical, and visually stunning!
Everything Good and Beautiful is short graphic novel about a girl named Key who decides to catalog all the good and beautiful things in her world--from cuddling to hot cocoa to rubbing her bare feet on cement--so she can have a reference for when she's feeling sad and hopeless. Not everything goes as planned, however, and soon she finds herself in the very pit of despair that inspired her project to begin with.
This is a funny and hopeful story about the dark places we go, and who (or what) helps us find our way back. We hope our readers find it as inspiring and beautiful as we do.
The finished project will be a 7" by 8.5" zine, about 40 pages, with a full-color cover and black-and-white interior pages.
Our fundraising goal is $1,000, which will be spent entirely on the printing costs for a first-run of about 400 copies of the zine. All donations over $10 will receive a copy of the finished zine. We are offering additional gifts as well, described in the right-hand column.
Any funds over $1,000 will be used to print additional copies of Everything Good and Beautiful, order stickers and postcards, and to pay for postage, envelopes, and other supplies needed to send out the zines to backers, buyers, bookstores, distributions, and reviewers.
We have been working on this project tirelessly for almost a year. The money raised here will help us to share our story with the world. Thank you so much for your support!
