About this project
My name is Travis Hanson. As many people know, I love to tell stories. I have found that the most wonderful gift we have been given is the power of our imagination. I am grateful for the opportunities I have to share mine with you through kickstarter. This is my next book. An adventure tale of Tanner Jones and the crew of the "Scrawny Duck", a bunch of misfit pirate teddy bears who are on a quest to find the fabled "Monkey Stone".
The project is simple. It's to build another book, the way I envision it. One full of incredible art, a good story and strong design. I feel that books are a work of art and should be full of life and magic. I personally love books that take you places and that let your mind run wild with emotion and wonder.
With your help, we can make this book a reality. I can only do it with you. That is what makes kickstarter so fantastic. It creates opportunities for creators to make their dreams a reality and let you be a part of the experience as well.
This is my 5th experience on the kickstarter platform. I understand the importance of updates, reward fulfillment and making sure you are part of the experience. I will update regularly, and as I update we will be able to watch this adventure of a young man and his pirate bears unfold.
Shipping and Rewards
Since we hit the Goal - Lets Bring out the Stretch Goals.... and as many of you know I like to make them fun and exciting.
And that's not all - Just take a look at what else is coming! It's going to be fun!
If we reach that point and move beyond the next level will be figurines... looking into those right now. See all the stretch goals below.
** important note on stretch rewards. Some rewards are for all tiers, while other rewards are for specific tiers and above. This is due to the added shipping costs. The coloring book for example is for tier $45 and above if we meet the goal.
If we hit the goal and go beyond, there will be stretch goals. The goals will be fun and the rewards worth it. I am once again considering a coloring book that deals with just the bears, as well as puzzles and book upgrades.
**the survey we will send out right before the books arrive. **
Thank you once again for your support and your willingness to be part of my adventures. I could not do this without you. Thank you.
Risks and challenges
Challenges, risks and issues.
There are always risks and challenges. After 4 successful kickstarter runs, I know that the most important thing is to be upfront and honest about when things will be completed or delayed. Something I have always been committed to do in the past. There will always be updates and it is very important to read and keep updated on what you need to do and what is going on - on my end.
There are many things that can happen that will cause a delay or issue with a project. Like, being caught up in quicksand or a nasty trap. There are sometimes printing delays, shipping delays, custom issues, hardware issues or general production delays. This happens. The worst would be the total destruction of the product... something we don't wish for.
But don't worry, I will be very honest with you. This is our project together- something that takes a little time to make, but in the end is well worth it.
The most important thing is to read the updates, read the FAQ's or just message me and I will always keep you in the loop on what is going on.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The answer is simple- shipping costs went way up these last few years and most of the time we ship two packages with the rewards. So we need the help and I am still willing to cover a part of your shipping. Most of the time it costs about 25 to 30 per package to ship international. International packages will not ship without the shipping adjustment.
The Survey comes at the end when the books are ready to be shipped.
If you want your rewards the surveys are very very important. Even if you live next door, you still have to fill out a survey to get the reward. Its the system that allows to keep track of everything and make sure that you are taken care of.
Sadly no. It's just the books. I will make all those extras after the project available at my online store.
You can though add another book. This is easy for me to track. When you start adding tons of other little extras the surveys become a nightmare to manage for both you and I. So i will only offer a second book.
Yes I know, but there are two shows that hit in this time frame that I am a guest at. Last time I had several fans that wanted to be part of the last one and had never heard that I was doing a kickstarter project. So this provides a way for them to have an opportunity.
I want them to have an opportunity. They are part of the crew as well.
Yes you can. You can always change your reward and pledge amount in kickstarter.
