Stretch Goals!

Thanks for all your fantastic support. 5 Seconds Volume 2 is now funded and I'm happy to announce some stretch goals. This section will get updated as the targets are reached. 

What is 5 Seconds?

5 Seconds Volume 2 is a YOUNG ADULT - 70 page - PERFECT BOUND - Graphic Novel which picks up directly after the first 5 Seconds finishes. Jake finds himself dealing with a new situation, a girl who can read minds. What deep dark secret is the girl hiding and can Jake (with his best friend Ellie) find out before the past catches up with them?

5 Seconds was one of the first few stories I developed and will always have a place in my heart. It was written as a trilogy and Volume 2 is the second act in Jake's story. 

5 Seconds Volume 2 has ACTION, ROMANCE and of course a sprinkling of the PAST and FUTURE all thrown in. This graphic novel has amazing artwork by P.R. Dedelis and fantastic colours by Peyton Freeman.

First . . DON'T worry! Volume 2 is written as a self contained story and you don't need to have read Volume 1 to enjoy it. 

Second  . . PDF copies of Volume 1 are available and there's hard copies of Volume 1 available as ADD ON rewards. (Increase your pledge by $25 for a copy of the first volume of 5 Seconds.)

What is the funding for?

5 Seconds Volume 2 is ALMOST finished with the pages coloured. There's some work that needs to be done to insert some lucky pledgers as background characters AND some lettering to finish off. The monies will let me complete the first print run of 5 Seconds Volume 2 and bring it to life!

The Characters

Jake's life changes when he can see 5 Seconds into the future. What should have been an ordinary day changes dramatically when he crashes into Janet. Even his with ability, Jake's the person who will usually act first and think later!

Ellie is Jake's partner in crime (not in a literal sense) and comes to help out when Jake realises he might be over his head. Ellie's the type of friend you know you can count on in an emergency.

Janet suddenly develops the ability to start hearing other people's thoughts. For her it's a curse and she just wants it stop. What has happened in her past that she is trying to escape?

Page Samples

Here's some sample pages from 5 Seconds Volume 2. Enjoy!

Creative Team

Stephen Kok (Writer) is an Australian resident from Malaysia. Tabby (ISBN 9780994289902) a retelling of Romeo & Juliet with cats was his first published graphic novel. He enjoys a weekend watching penguins with his daughter.

P.R. Dedelis (Artist) is from Poland and has been illustrating for over 6 years. He is a avid reader and Baby Driver is his current favourite film.

Risks and challenges

I have previously completed 5 successful Kickstarters and have delivered all rewards on schedule. Most of the pages are already done. I just need to insert the background characters (from the rewards) and finish off the lettering. Then it's just preparing for the first print run!
