We've FUNDED!! YAY!
Not A Villain" is an ongoing story about a genius hacker girl trying to redeem herself in an online, virtual reality. She really wants to be a hero, but struggles with personality flaws and defects, not to mention avoiding being killed by everyone who blames her for the apocalypse.
"Not A Villain" switches between three settings, all featuring different art styles (and all done by the same artist: me!).
There's the very simple art style of L.i.F.e., the virtual reality everyone uses.
The more complex art style of The Game, a massive, multiplayer game that has become the main escapism for people.
And then there's the post-apocalyptic Reality (ie: real life), which everyone tries to pretend doesn't really exist.
Book 3 will be a perfect-bound, softcover book with 144 pages (collecting 259 to 383). 128 will be story pages and 16 will be bonus material pages, including a fun short story detailing the alignments in the Game Tutorial (of which you can be a part of!)
The $9,000 will cover printing 1,000 copies of Book 3, plus fees, shipping and the extra rewards.
$12,000 is needed to print 2,000 copies which I would really like to do!. I also have some other cool stretch goal ideas (like maybe "D" plushies!), but let's see if we can hit the first one!
They're on the right (or under "rewards" if you're on a mobile/tablet)! Please check them out and, when you're ready, click on the one you want and follow the instructions.
To "add on" to a reward is really easy. Just click the reward you want, then change the dollar amount at the top (not the reward) and add the needed amount required. That's it! I will send out a survey at the end of the Kickstarter where you will tell me what extras you added on.
This will be the wallpaper available to all backers:
These are the posters (11X17) to select from:
The t-shirt features the mysterious "D", a dragon-looking AI, which also glows ORANGE in the dark!
These are the bookmarks to select from:
These are the previous NAV books in the series, all funded by previous Kickstarter campaigns (thank you fans!!)
I have written other books and by popular demand, I'm making them available for this Kickstarter. If you like NAV, you might like these! Please note, they're not graphic novels, but are normal prose books.
The rest should be self-explanatory. If you have any questions, simply click the blue "Contact Me" link located near the top and I'd be happy to answer anything.
Oh, and for the custom Game art and alignment parts, I should probably note that your chance of being used again as a background character goes up the easier it is to draw your character :D
Risks and challenges
This will be my third Kickstarter and I've learned a ton from the previous ones, so I'm confident I can handle any unforeseen obstacle for this one. Of course, if there are any delays, my backers will be the first to know. Thankfully, the art for the story pages are already done and most of the bonus pages should be done shortly. I've worked with this printer before and feel they'll do a great job (they did book 2). The only real delays will be with shipping, but my backers know that I make sure everyone gets their book/order in the end.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
