About this project

MAKE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE UPDATES--TWICE WEEKLY SAMPLE ART, COMIC PAGES, AND NEWS!

Free Comic Book Day is like a major holiday in my house! Not only do I love comics--but I enjoy making sure that others who like comics get them... even/especially if they can't afford to get them.

WE WILL DO A FULL COVER REVEAL AT THE 50% MARK!

As a SF/F author I often run booths at comicons in my part of the upper-midwest. I connect with people through stories--it's how I interact with people. As a way to pay it forward and include more people in the comics community at large I'm hoping you will partner with me on this story about good and evil, science and magic, and adventure at every turn as a normal girl from the middle of nowhere is thrust into a quest that spans the multi-verse.

My hope is to distribute something like 5,000 issues of this comic for FREE and use any remaining copies as promotional items to help promote my followup novel Wolf of the Tesseract. I have tentative agreements already with 4 (and a few more still discussing it) comics conventions who want to hand out these free comics at the door.
--Cons Already agreed to giveaway free comics include MN Fanfest, Minnesota Comics Convention, Lion-Con, Valleycon, MCBA/Fallcon, Blizzardworld, Metacon, Frankiecon, (and in discussions with others)

Wolf of the Tesseract is a YA spec fiction title that reads something like "a female Percy Jackson team sup with an inter-dimensional werewolf to stop a Cthulu-like monster from devouring all reality." It is published through Black Rose Writing and already available with a sequel already completed.

My interior artists are a couple friends who live in Indonesia but have a passion for the same kind of stories as I do (who knew they'd connect through the internet with a bagpipe playing guy from MN to illustrate my overly vivid imagination?) The cover artist is a talented friend and artist, also from MN.

Risks and challenges

My main risk is one of production time. The artwork and digital side of putting together the comic is coming along fine, but I haven't worked with my preferred printer before and there is a slight risk that I will not have my physical copies in time for the early fall conventions based on printing and shipping times. I am scheduled for a number of MN and ND comicons throughout the year, however, and so it means I might not have copies for those conventions... but I'll have them for others and can always increase the number being given away at the doors to other cons to meet our goals.
