About

My Name is Ngozi Ukazu and I’m the creator of Check, Please!, an award-winning online comic that follows Eric “Bitty” Bittle, a former figure skater who joins a college hockey team and loves to bake. In addition to having his story unfold via the webcomic, Bitty also has an actual real-life twitter account that gives readers even more insight into his time at Samwell University.

Now, for the first time, I’m collecting Bitty's best TWEETS. (!!!) And I'm doing this in a book I call THE CHIRPBOOK.

And on top of collecting Bitty’s Tweets, The Chirpbook will contain new selfies, never-before-seen pictures from Jack Zimmermann’s camera roll, brand new comics, and secret tweets from Bitty’s senior year. (So, SPOILERS!) All of these features and more will be in The Chirpbook, the perfect catalog to round out your Check, Please! Collection.

The dimensions of THE CHIRPBOOK will be similar to those of the other self-published Check, Please! books. This is how it would fit in on a bookshelf.

This project is small, simple, and straightforward. No stretch goals or achievements, just (a) the book, (b) some exclusive stickers, and (c) a wonderful mini-print set. (Phew, right?)

A preview of how THE CHIRPBOOK will look. I'm adding brand new images and comics to the tweets.

Important Details You Need To Know

  1.  1. The End of The Comic...Check, Please! Ends in April. The book CHECK, PLEASE!: STICKS & SCONES will be in bookstores in April. So, thusly, this book will ship in April. (This book has so many spoilers.) So we won't ship The Chirpbook out until at least the release date of STICKS & SCONES on April 7th.
  2.  2. Exclusive! The sticker set and postcard print sets will be exclusive to this campaign. That means these items will not be sold individually at conventions or online after we start fulfillment.
  3.  3. PledgeManager. PledgeManager is how we will be managing addresses, charges for shipping, and add-ons for the project.It’s a service that makes it easier for us to get you your rewards. With PledgeManager, you can customize and add on rewards after the Kickstarter is complete. (It’s super easy.) We will also send you your digital rewards via PledgeManager.
  4.  4. Shipping Costs Applied After The Kickstarter. You as a backer will be charged for the cost of shipping after the Kickstarter. When you fill out your PledgeManager info, you’ll pay shipping fees based on the exact weight and dimensions of your rewards. This means cheaper shipping for you and no guessing on our end.

THE BOOK - THE CHIRPBOOK. Approximately 168 pages featuring Bitty’s tweets from his sophomore, junior, and senior years. Also chock full of new  illustrations and a foreword. Available in digital PDF, softcover, or hardcover.
THE PRINT SET -  Five illustrious postcards that you can cherish forever, or mail to your best friends.
STICKERS - A set of stickers that might possibly include a post-it note or a goose.
BOOKPLATE - A signed bookplate you can stick into your CHIRPBOOK.

It's a simple Kickstarter! You've got THE CHIRPBOOK in softcover and hardcover, a small set of prints, and stickers. (And signed bookplates!)

Risks and challenges

The tweets are done, the illustrations are nearly finished (just heading into final tweaks), the printer is lined up and our good friends at DFTBA and PledgeManager are on hand for support through the fulfillment stages.
