About this project
There was a time when Lars, Steve, Fuzzy, and Thora were just four little bunnies living on an island free from dangers, troubles, worries, or anything adventurous. It was this lack of adventures that bothered Fuzzy, so he convinced his fellow bunnies to build a boat and set sail! Together, these four rabbits will search for treasures, food, and more as they also search for their own claim in the history books of The Great Sea. What other animals will they encounter? What great treasures will they find? What kinds of troubles will they manage to get into? Follow the adventures of The Viking Bunnies and see for yourself!Hi! I'm Noah. I make stuff. I came up with idea for The Viking Bunnies because, well, for some reason I really wanted to make a cartoon about bunnies. First there was Tiger Bunny, then Time-Travel Bunny, but eventually I decided upon The Viking Bunnies! Originally The Viking Bunnies was to be a cartoon series, but I never could figure out exactly what the target was for their adventures. Who wanted to see this cartoon? What did they do? Do I have enough time to make these cartoons by myself? Then, when my three-year-old nephew saw the art and fell in love with them, I pretty much knew what had to be done: I had to make kid's books.
But I didn't want to make "just another book in a sea of thousands". I wanted to write a kid's book that wasn't just for kids. That, and I wanted to make sure that these adventures remain original stories. I'm not just writing "The Three Little Pigs" and putting it up for sale so I can make money like my competition might do. I wanted new, different, original works that can be enjoyed by all. Sure, it's kid-friendly, but I wanted to put enough humor in there that parents or young adults could enjoy my stories as well. You can bet that I have as much fun writing these stories as you do reading them! And please, read them with your kids. I promise I will do my best to continue to entertain you both!
With this Kickstarter I hope to do the following :
- Finish 10 Books (I will be writing these. My girlfriend proofreads my slop).
- Finish 10 Cartoon versions of each book (I will be editing these. I'm a video editor by trade, after all!).
- Create an interactive website (I will be doing all of the coding/design).
- Hire a literary agent to promote The Viking Bunnies to major publishers (A majority of funds will be going to hiring an agent and a publisher).
Risks and challenges
Creating the books and writing the stories is really not that hard for me. The hard part is getting the published and in the hands of readers. The major risk is seeing this as a "waste of time" (but I don't think of it as a waste as I enjoy making these books). It would sadden me to have written these great stories only to not have kids enjoy them. With your help, I can get these stories into the hands of children all over the world (and adults too)!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
