Synopsis:

51 Serif St: The Actress is the story of an actress from the golden era of Hollywood. She finds herself mysteriously abducted in the middle of the night and taken to the 51 Serif St. asylum. She begins her search to find who is responsible for this but finds out so much more about the place she is in. All of the sudden she begins to feel like she may not be alone in her cell.

About the book:

51 Serif St. is the second of a series of standalone short stories revolving around the 51 Serif St. house. With each I wanted to tell a full one and done story, looking at the stories in a very Twilight Zone style, where each can stand on their own, yet the setting ultimately becomes the focal center of the narrative.

 Risks, challenges, and more:

As some of you may know, this is the second Kickstarter go at this book. Initially planned as goal for a large initial run of hardcovers, I scaled it back a lot and decided to go with a lot lower of a number and play it safe, just so I can assure the book gets to those who want it. Although if we do reach the goal necessary for a full run of the hardcovers, I will certainly go that route and everyone who pledges will be upgraded at no upcharge!

 The Kickstarter exclusive print:

 The cover artwork:

 The TOME Artist Proof (1/1)

Risks and challenges

The book is more or less done, so fulfillment is a non-issue and I can guarantee everyone will get the book with no delay. The financial risks of the initial large order run were the deciding factor that made and broke the previous campaign, but with a low original print run we can address that successfully!

    This is the big one! Along with sending you the hardcover book I will draw a full 22 page comic based on your script! Note, however, I will reserve the right to turn down any work that is of offensive nature. I've drawn my fair share of terrifying things but there are some subjects that I just don't feel comfortable doing. If you are considering this pledge, please send me a message just to make sure we are both on the same page :)
