The Project

Who we are:  Robin & Cory Childs are two storytellers building a small company and a creative dream.  We've been raising funds for our third volume through conventions, classes, and even creative writing birthday parties.  We've earned half the costs on our own, and now we need your help to raise the final half!

What we're making:  The third volume in the LeyLines series.  These beautiful books will come in softcover and collector edition hardcover versions. 

What we'll do with extra funds:  Improve the book, add more contributors to the Trickster Tales, and give bonuses to our generous contributors for their stories, comics, and illustrations.  With your help, we can make this book not only great, but GORGEOUS!  Scroll down to take a look at the stretch goals and the improvements we can make to the book!

Risks and challenges

We've published two books already, and this will be our third. For this volume we're working with Print Ninja, who has come highly recommended and has greatly impressed us with their quality and responsiveness. We are confident that we'll produce a beautiful book in a timely fashion.

That said, there can always be complications and delays. There might be errors in the proof, or problems with shipping and customs as the books leave the printers in China and make their way overseas. In all of these cases, the solutions lie in communication and patience. You'll be informed by Kickstarter updates of any delays, the actions being taken to address problems, and the anticipated impact to the schedule.

Surveys for shipping rewards to you will not be issued until we have the books in-hand. It takes time to produce a book, and sometimes people move in the interim, which is the reason we wait to collect shipping information. For unique products that require new artwork (commissions, avatars, etc), we'll be doing those products in stages and will keep you updated on each phase of production.
