It's a new year, so how about a new instalment of Jodie and The Talking Tree? Here's part two of a three-part fantasy comic series about a young girl who discovers an egotistical talking tree with a secret to share. Having just moved to a new town with her dad, the tree's secret is too much to resist for little Jodie. The trilogy touches on grief, loneliness, and identity.

If you have read part one, you will be familiar with the plot, but if you haven't, then you should read them in order. But, don't worry! I've included a reward tier for you new readers, and you can pre-order both one and two together here.

Why Kickstarter? 

So, this time I'm using these funds to not only pay for the printing costs, but also to help support the finishing of the comic itself. I am still working on the digital pages, and although it is nearly finished, all support will help!

Last time, I really enjoyed the Kickstarter process, and found it was a good way to find readers. I hope this time, whether you are returning or new, you will find something you are interested in! 

Don't forget to follow the process on my social media page @birdqueeen (Insta/twitter/facebook). 

Thanks,

R. E. Burke

Risks and challenges

I've done this before, so I am pretty confident I can deliver everything sufficiently.

There is a slight difference between these projects, as last time I had finished the art when I released the Kickstarter, but this time I am still completing it. I believe I had estimated my delivery date based on realistic creation time, and I should be able to get it done in time for you to read.

Thanks again for supporting me!
