About this project

This is the first volume of a collection of short stories.

Who is W?

The world is full of superheroes in movies, books, and comics, so why should we need a new one?

W is everything we’re missing.

W is a woman. She decides not to reveal herself as such, by wearing a unique technology-filled suit (she’s an engineer, after all…) that conceals her body shape. She’s a woman who, during the day, struggles with a normal life in New York City: a job, friends who don’t and can’t really know her, a very complicated romantic situation. There’s mystery in her life: how did she acquire her powers? Who’s behind her superhuman strength and healing abilities?

Helped by her best friend from college, Jay, the only person who knows her secrets and who provides her with tech gimmicks, W does her best to keep New York City safe, while trying to bring light to her own past.

W is Guinn McGovern, and she’s ready to kick ass.

Who is Annalisa Conti?

I am a passionate storyteller. I’ve always built stories in my mind and found my greatest satisfaction in sharing those stories with whoever cared to listen. My books describe my world, made of adventure, wonders, and everything that these can bring to my characters.

I am the author of All The People and Africa, two novels.

My work is based on my experiences of life, with its joys and despairs. My characters emerge from reality itself, they don’t just live on my pages.

I live and write in New York City.

What will the money be used for?

The money raised with this Kickstarter will cover for publishing and marketing costs: editing, cover art, advertising, and book launch marketing activities.

Take your chance to be part of this innovative and much needed publishing project, and get your copy of W - Volume 1 (plus exclusive editions and perks) directly from the hands of its author. Get on board!

Risks and challenges

The main challenge is creation/production delay, since this is a work of creativity.

I have carefully planned the timeline for completing and delivering W - Volume 1, but in case any unexpected events should occur I will communicate with my backers in real-time.
