STRETCH GOAL #7 - $4000
Ya dig that live action vid we made? Me too! It was a ton of fun to do! Dan Belleville, the cat who conducted the soundtrack actually did enough music for a full length movie trailer, nearly 3 minutes of music. I wanna use it ALL! If we make a few extra bucks, we're going to re-cut and extend the trailer into a full length movie trailer and release it to backers first!
STRETCH GOAL #6 - $3500
Every backer at the $2 digital reward and up will receive digital copies of ALL FOUR issues of Norah at no extra charge!
STRETCH GOAL #5 - $3000
11 days remain and we couldn't be more thrilled with the response to Norah! So much that we want to spread a little more love of both Source Point Press and Norah artist, Sean Seal! If we get to $3000 we're going to give EVERY BACKER a digital download of Sean's 2nd Source Point comic, The Rot!
STRETCH GOAL #4 - $2500
If we make it this far, we're going to record a high-quality audiobook of "The Prophecy Effect," read by author, Kasey Pierce. This story is inter-related to the Norah story and will make an excellent addition for anyone interested in the universe in which Norah takes place. This audiobook will be made available digitally to ALL BACKERS!!
STRETCH GOAL #3 - $2000
This is a BIG one folks! If we break $2000, EVERY SINGLE BACKER will get a digital copy of Norah #2 (which is in production right NOW) the MOMENT it's done, long before it ever releases to the public, absolutely FREE!!!
STRETCH GOAL #2 - $1500
Artist Sean Seal did a piece of concept art for the BIG BAD in NORAH pretty early on that everyone here at Source Point Press immediately took notice of. You can see him poking through the shadows near the end of the NORAH video above and it's a true piece of art. We're going to make a print of that piece, have Sean sign them, and send them out to every single person who backs at a physical book level or above!
STRETCH GOAL #1 - $1000
We're trying to make the NORAH experience as immersive as possible. The first part of that plan is expanding the story into multiple media platforms. At $1000 every backer of this campaign will receive a download of the audio recording "Norah's Confession." The very same recording that Norah is making in the trailer! Let's go!!!!
Norah Seizhelm is a “Coma Fisher” for hire. With the ability to tap into the mind’s eye, she’ll either find and retrieve you or help you cross to the other side. A mission of peace, to be sure.
But how she obtained this skill is a longer story. A long, dark past filled with secrets, the death of thousands, and a threat of mass genocide.
While working for a classified sector of the U.S government, she and her husband , Dr. James Seizhelm, worked in pathogen development, creating hellish viruses to be used for biological warfare. When a Marine General approaches them with news of an alien empire, one with less than peaceful aims, the Seizhelms activate an old project; Codename: Warlock.
Written by Kasey Pierce with gorgeous, painted, interior art by Sean Seal, NORAH: Epimetheus is the first of a four chapter horror-sci fi epic!
Norah and her husband, Dr. James Seizhelm, were developing a drug for an intergalactic branch of the military. The drug mimicked a synthetic genome, actually altering the DNA of any subject injected with the serum. The intent was....the intent was not what happened. The result was James’ death. Norah, on the other hand, took the drug without any immediate adverse side effects. Norah and her sister, Vera, would go on to save the world, but that’s a different story.
This is after that time.
Today, she is making a living as a coma-fisher; one who pulls people from their comatose state. She helps families all over the country retrieve the souls of their loved ones. This particular evening, Norah finds herself at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. She took the case of 5-year-old Anna, who suffered a seizure that caused her to bash her head against a tub. Her parents have hired Norah to come and fish her from the coma before she slips away into death.
A few years ago aspiring writer Kasey Pierce started an ambitious science fiction epic on her blog at KosmicKasey.com called The Prophecy Effect. The story of the Seizhelms started there. From those humble beginnings, Kasey is bringing Norah's story to a wider audience than ever with an all new angle on the tale!
Painter extraordinaire, Sean Seal, has been turning heads in the comic industry for a few years now. From his anthology work with The MIchigan Comics Collective (Wild Bullets) to pieces with Fifth Dimension Comics, Sean continously delivers creativity and excellence.
Sean is also a popular commission artist due to his unique, watercolor inspired style and has become a "go to" colorist across the independent comics world from his work in horror favorite Up The River!
A graphic designer and artist at the top of his field, Jason Westlake has worked for the likes of Hasbro, Topps, Caliber Comics, and Binary Publications across popular properties like War of the Worlds, Transformers, Night of the Living Dead and Deadworld. And now, he's handling cover art duties for all four chapters of NORAH!
All of us here at Source Point Press love horror. And we love science fiction. It flows through our veins. It happily spills onto the floor whenever we have an axe murderer wander through the SPP offices. It's a big deal to us.
So, when we get handed the opportunity to make something as unique, and as fun, as NORAH with a creative team at the height of their powers, we jump at it. This book NEEDED to be made. We handled that part.
Now, YOU can help us get NORAH out into the world by pre-ordering the book from this Kickstarter campaign! Campaigns like this help a small press publisher like us have more direct control over our distribution. It allows us to have more control over our print runs. And most importantly, it allows us, and the creators we work with, to directly connect with our fans and friends and offer them cool extras you won't be able to get anywhere else!
