Great and Wonderful News
We surpassed the kickstarter goal a few days ago! So, we will definitely be funded. We have 25 days left and plan to make the most of it. Part of us finding funding is us asking our backers for help. This means spreading the word to your friends, family, twitter followers, Facebook friends, or whomever else it is that you think would be interested. I've learned that all it takes is a simple, "Hey, I supported this and you may like it as well!"
I also updated the main page with a little newer blurb about the project.
The Importance of These Quiet Worlds:I own a large collection of comic books. They sit in their sleeves and are organized by title names. I have collections of Aquaman to Buffy and everything in between. I love the characters, stories, plots and the machinations of comic books, but there is one thing that I don't run into very often. There are few to no gay comic book heroes.
This is a close issue for me as a gay person. I connect with so many of the heroes and heroines but I always miss the gay aspect. I have had few love stories to identify with beyond the concept of love, which is powerful, but not specific to my life style.
I didn't write These Quiet Worlds as a gay comic. I wrote These Quiet Worlds as a comic book with a gay character to identify with. I also wrote it with female characters to identify with. My closest personal friends have always been girls who kick more ass than guy I've ever known. The photographer, Rosie Wiegand, is another prolific woman whom I look up to. She comes from a family of independent, intelligent, and artistic women. These are the kind of people that will be in my book.
The people for me are the inspirational ones. They are people who set out to be themselves every day of their lives. They fumble and deter but they set out to make a more truthful tomorrow, and I will have them be the heroes of These Quiet Worlds.
Have a wonderful week, and here is a link for you guys to send to your friends!
