Thank you for helping us to hit our initial goal that will allow us to publish this book.

Stretch Goal #1 Unlocked! We will add an additional three bonus postcards for everyone who makes a book or print pledge of $30 or more! There are now six postcards total.

Stretch Goal #2 Unlocked! -- We will include a new 30 minute art demonstration video exclusive to our Kickstarter supporters! This will be available to anyone who makes a book or print pledge of $30 or more.

In the video, Jeff will talk about how he works for clients and for his own projects. He'll also show examples of thumbnail sketches, and he'll talk about what he thinks about when he composes a picture. Jeff will show the process of a finished piece from sketch to final painting, while showing the materials and techniques that he uses.

This video will appeal equally to artists who are looking to advance their own craft, and to fans to get an inside look at how Jeff tells a story with his art. We will be making this video available online that you can stream from any of your devices.

All Kickstarter stretch goal bonus items are limited to one per backer.

Add-on anything to anything! An Add-On lets you pledge for more than one tier by adding the price of any additional tier to your existing pledge. Say you want to include an extra signed book? Simply add-on an additional $40 to your pledge and let us know. You will also need to double the shipping charge. If you have any questions we are here to help.

We expect to have your pledges shipped to you in August 2018. The designs for the books and prints are completed. We will send them to the printer immediately upon the completion of this campaign if we hit our goal. It takes approximately three months for everything to be printed, then to be delivered to us. We will ship them to everyone in mid-August immediately upon their arrival at our Flesk warehouse in Santa Cruz, CA.

All books are shipped within the U.S.A. by USPS Mail and will include tracking. Premium signed giclée prints shipped in the U.S.A. will ship by USPS First Class mail (small prints) or Priority Mail (large prints) and will include tracking.

The items shipped to our international friends usually take 3 weeks for delivery to your local post office, but can sometimes take up to 3-6 weeks depending on the country. Note that customs for your local country may hold on to packages for a week or longer and incur additional charges that are the responsibility of the backer. We know that shipping overseas is very expensive and we wish it was cheaper, too! We help by subsidizing some of the shipping cost. We make no money from the shipping.

 Jeff's Thoughts on Working with John Fleskes

I love working with John because he makes beautiful books. It's as simple as that. He is a master craftsman, and I know that he will bring the same level of attention and care into bringing the book into the world as I did in creating the work within it. I could not have been happier with our first book together, Notes From The Shadowed City, and I can't wait to see what he does with The Thousand Demon Tree.

John's Thoughts on Working with Jeffrey Alan Love

I was mesmerized with Jeff's work from the moment I first saw it. I could tell immediately that this was an artist with that rare individual voice that could speak in soft tones, yet have a strong commanding presence through his art. Upon meeting Jeff I found someone with an equal passion and commitment to making art and books that had a genuine purpose. He is humble, one of the best storytellers and designers who I've met, and someone who lets his work speak for itself. It's a joy to work with Jeff--especially when I get to see each new work for the first time, and during the excitement that comes while we brainstorm ideas. It's pure pleasure to have this opportunity to bring his work into the viewers hands.

Jeffrey Alan Love is an award-winning artist and writer whose clients have included the New York Times, TIME, The New Yorker, Scholastic, HarperCollins, Tor, Gollancz, and others. Winner of the World Fantasy Award for Best Artist, a gold medal from the Society of Illustrators, a Silver Spectrum Fantastic Art Award, and two Academy of British Cover Design Awards, he has been nominated for The British Fantasy Award, The British Science Fiction Award, and the Chesley Award.

A message from the Publisher, John Fleskes: What Kickstarter offers is the opportunity to create and do what we love, while connecting and giving back to our supporters in a personal way. This makes the process much more enjoyable than if we simply worked behind closed doors. It is also gratifying to have the opportunity to continually add value to the project through stretch goals. I've never felt that we are making products. Instead, we are making unique art books and prints. This is done with great care to best allow us to showcase Jeff's art in a way that we can be proud of. We hope that you will cherish them just as much as we do.

Risks and challenges

Why you should trust Flesk Publications? John Fleskes answers:

I pride myself on having a sixteen year record of delivering over eighty books of the highest quality. I've run eight previous Kickstarter campaigns with artists such as Brom, Frank Cho, J.A.W. Cooper, Gary Gianni and Mike Mignola (Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea Studio Edition), Petar Meseldzija, Richard and Wendy Pini (Elfquest), Mark Schultz, and Daren Bader and Lance HaunRogue. Most of these have been on time. We are very open with our backers and communicate through updates often to keep you up to date.

In some cases, things don't always go exactly as planned in the publishing world. Much of the time they do, but sometimes an unexpected problem or delay arises. In the rare case that this happens, simply put, I deal with it and find a way to get the job done. I am very open about any challenges and like to share in the process so people know what's going on. I don't like surprises, and don't feel anyone else should either. I respect the artist, and our supporters too much to let them down. The good thing is that I've published over eighty books and I know how to get them shipped and delivered, and I know how to manage a schedule and keep projects on track, and I will stay motivated and energized to get the books into your hands when I said I would.

I can't thank everyone enough who has supported us before. You directly help us to make these beautiful books.
