Dreaming Chain is a graphic series of five short stories and vignettes that take place in the same fictional world: The Chain. My intent is to capture the mood/character of The Chain through emotion impression rather than exposition, by allowing the reader to explore the magical and mundane lives of its residents. Narrative themes include depression and endurance, queer love, and secular spirituality. I use experimental comic formats to evoke empathy and pull you into the world!

The content of the book is already complete, save for final edits! Over the past seven months, I've been workin on Dreaming Chain as my BFA thesis for the University of North Carolina at Asheville. Through Kickstarter, I'm looking to fund the first (and likely, only) print run of Dreaming Chain, in order to fund copies for my show as well as to share the book with my audience who have supported me during its creation!

In order to focus on sending you quality books in a timely manner, I'm limiting backer rewards to print and/or digital copies of the book. The books are 9"x9", soft cover, and perfect bound. I have already chosen a printing service to work with, and discussions for printing are underway. The goal of $2,500 is almost entirely going to pay for printing, shipping to backers, and associated Kickstarter fees.

Risks and challenges

The book is already completed, so once funding is reached I'll be able to move directly to printing. This is not my first project printing books, but it is my first time shipping books to customers. I have a lot of guidance from people more experienced than me, however, so I'm confident I'll be able to get your books to you safely.
