Why i'm raising funds

I am hoping to raise funds to help "Kick Start" the printing and publishing of my first official Comic! 

With the funds raised from this project i hope to cover all printing cost to get my book out to various shops i am in contact with and to sell online. My goal is to then use the profits to fund the production of Hellborn Issue 2 and so on. The end goal is to have a series of Comics that i hope will continue for years to come.

Why i care about Hellborn

Hellborn is a story i have been working on for years, i wrote the initial idea while i was studying in secondary school (13 years ago!) And it has grown and grown since then. 

Over the years i have continued to write, i absolutely love it! I always intended on writing a Novel, even began on the manuscript for Hellborn. But one day my good friend said "Why don't you turn this into a graphic novel?", We are both avid readers of Comics and Graphic Novels, i was surprised the idea never came to me before! Comic and Graphic novel writing was always something i wanted to try out but as i was not a very skilled artist and i thought it wouldn't happen. The same friend told me about a site called freelanced and from there i found an artist with the same interest as me who really liked the story and the concept. We worked together over the past year and a half and now Hellborn Issue 1 is ready to be released!

I would love nothing more than to make this my full time job, being able to just write and create Comic's and Graphic Novels every day would be fantastic. If i can create a story that people enjoy and want more of then i would consider my goal a success.

Who I Am

My Name is Laurence Ledda, but all my friends call me Loz. I live in the UK and am happily married with 2 children!

I work full time as a Team Manager and spend most my free time being a Dad, Writing or Gaming!

For most of my life people have told me i am very creative with a vivid imagination, also that i am a big dreamer. I feel that these characteristics are what make me love writing and creating stories so much. In the workplace i'm the "Ideas Guy", i'm always coming up with ways to improve the service and the lives of all my employees, this is normally with tools and applications that make the job easier.

I like to think i'm an easy going, fun loving guy. I generally make people laugh, sometimes without intending to! And i work hard towards meeting my goals.

My Dream is to run my own entertainment business, making Comics, Graphic Novels, Games and  a lot more. Hellborn is only the beginning :)

Risks and challenges

There is always risks and challenges with a project such as this. First of all, will anyone even like Hell Born? I understand not all stories are for everyone but i hope that everyone will give my story a chance and i will be more than happy to take on any feedback or criticism as this will help me adapt and improve for future issues and stories!

Financially it costs quite a bit to product a full 40 page book (especially if you are not doing the art yourself!) So your help and support id greatly appreciated and i will not forget your kindness for believing in me and my project.
