Help us complete the remaining pages of our full color graphic novel biography of the first family of country music, The Carter Family.

We're at work on DON'T FORGET THIS SONG, a 192-page full color graphic novel biography of the first family of country music-- The Carter Family. The story of their career is every bit as remarkable as their music. We have wanted to create a graphic novel about the Carters for almost a decade.

We found a great publisher for the project—Abrams Books. In 2008, we were given an advance of about $5,000 each to start work on the project. Those funds saw us through the first year of the work.

Our goal is to complete this project by the end of 2011. We’re asking for your help so that we can work full-time on the finalization of this graphic novel. DON’T FORGET THIS SONG is our dream project, and with your help, we can realize this dream.
