$2500 or more: Everyone will get an exclusive Remote Angel bookmark or 3 stickers!
My dream is to expose my story throughout local states at a couple of different anime conventions in 2014, such as Animenext and Otakon. (Possibly even more if I reach higher funds!) I have been working on this remade story from 2008 for two years. I reworked the plot and gave character development that I worked on for hours and hours brainstorming to make it flow. I have it self-published on Lulu.com and only sold a few copies. By using that website to print my books, it would only be sold online and without me personally shipping it out. After my experience in the Artist Alley, I really want to physically sell these copies in person so the book can be read right in front of you! Meaning, I would have to order all these copies myself to have on my person. That can only happen if I have the funds to be able to order copies to be made from the site!
WHERE'S THE MONEY GOING TO?
- 60%-70% of the money will go to printing the books. (via, myself personally ordering copies to be made).
- 30%-40% of it will go to two convention tickets, hotels, and supplies.
Also, with this reprinting, I'll put up a fanart section from my fans as a thanks to them as well and they would be credited for their work! :D
My story can also be read on Tapastic (click banner below) and MangaMagazine for free!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR/ARTIST
"Yennie Fer" is a pen name I go by. I'm 24 years old and an entrepreneur. The picture above shows my first ever time (hopefully not last) in the Artist Alley. I've been pursuing art for 13 years and found myself really drawn to making comics. I was always into cartoons, anime, manga and comics that it really inspired me to drawn my own (even though it wasn't pretty at first).
Remote Angel became my inspiration back in 2008. I based it off dreams I've had and life events. The old draft of Remote Angel was a bit rough and didn't have a plot. I then put it on hiatus and began to get serious about it in 2011.

Risks and challenges
This is the lower amount of money I anticipated last time so I'll be making this a smaller project focusing mostly on the book's printing and less conventions I will go to. If I make a stretch goal this time though, maybe I'll be able to get the funds I anticipated last time.Overall, it'll be just fine with the lower amount. I don't mind starting small either way!
The bigger challenge this time: I put more sketch rewards. It may be a lot of work but I'll enjoy drawing a lot of different drawings for everyone! I have made a lot of products 3 months before Animenext so if I can do it then, I can do it now!
