A novel about two teenage girls with superpowers and radically different agendas, destined for a collision that will rock the world.

Separated by thousands of miles, two young women are about to realize their extraordinary powers which will bind their lives together in ways they can't begin to understand.

Protecting others. Maintaining order. Being good. These are all important things for Bonnie Braverman, even if she doesn't understand why. Confined to a group home since she survived the car accident that killed both her parents, Bonnie has lived her life until now in self-imposed isolation and silence; but when an opportunity presents itself to help another girl in need, Bonnie has to decide whether to actually use the power she has long suspected she has. Power that frightens her.

Across the country, Lola LeFever is inheriting her own power by sending her mother over a cliff...literally. For Lola the only thing that matters is power; getting it, taking it, and eliminating anyone who would get in the way of her pursuit of it. With her mother dead and nothing to hold her back from the world any longer, Lola sets off to test her own powers on anyone unfortunate enough to cross her. And Lola's not afraid of anything.

One girl driven to rescue, save, and heal; the other driven to punish, destroy, and kill.

And now they're about to meet.

ABOUT:

THE GIRL WHO WOULD BE KING is a novel written by Kelly Thompson. The book is completed and has been work-shopped and revised with both a writing group and an agent and was almost purchased by a major publishing house in 2010. The book is being edited professionally (begone typos!), and has a gorgeous professional cover by renowned comic book cover artist Stephanie Hans.

This is not a graphic novel, but an approximately 375 page prose novel.

Books will go to printing immediately following the completion of the Kickstarter and rewards will be mailed out shortly thereafter. So this is a very quick turnaround time for Kickstarter. You won't have to wait long to read the book. In addition, I am giving away "Part 1" (roughly 90 pages) for free on my blog 1979 Semi-Finalist throughout the duration of the Kickstarter. And you should out TheGirlWhoWouldBeKing.com to learn more about the project, see some additional art, and great behind the scenes stuff!

If the Kickstarter is successful the book will be published in three formats:

  • A paperback edition for Kickstarter and for retail distribution.
  • An epub edition for the Kindle, Nook, or iPad for the Kickstarter and for retail distribution.
  • A limited edition, signed & numbered, casewrap hardcover first printing.

Funding will go to the production of the book: the actual printing, costs for editing, cover art, isbn’s, taxes, shipping, and other general expenses related to getting the book out there without me going broke in the process.

So who is this book for you ask?  That is an excellent question.

Fans of superheroes

Fans of comics

Fans of YA and Crossover Fiction

Fans of Feminism (woo!)

Fans of strong but complicated female leads

Fans of The Hunger Games or Battle Royale. (While the themes and plots are quite different, the violence is similarly intense)

Fans of character driven epics

And fans who enjoy falling love and then having their hearts torn out…who doesn’t love that?!

As for age appropriateness, that’s trickier and a bit the reason why we’re here in the first place. I feel it’s appropriate for about 15 and up, but if it’s a serious concern I’d recommend reading it yourself first, or at least checking out the sample chapters available here. In truth, I would have read a book like this when I was 12 or 13 on up and loved the crap out of it…but everyone has different guidelines for these things.

Thanks in advance to everyone for taking a look at this project and supporting it. If you think THE GIRL WHO WOULD BE KING is a worthwhile project please do your best to recommend it to others and to get the word out there!

25K STRETCH GOAL REACHED!!!!

You guys are AMAZING. I'm so excited for what this hardcover edition will now get to be a truly one of a kind item for a prose novel!

For those of you just checking the project out now - if you pledge at the $50 level (or above) your hardcover edition will now instantly become a limited edition signed and numbered hardcover with a section of between 6 and 12 FULL COLOR illustrations by Stephanie Hans - the uber talent behind the cover and other visuals for the book!  The three Stephanie drawings that have already been released (the cover, the Bonnie vs Lola painting, and the Bonnie Subway painting) will all be included, as will a number of BRAND NEW illustrations/paintings Stephanie is doing (you can check out Update #7 for some rough sketches she's done for a few of the paintings).

THANKS TO ALL OF YOU. This is completely amazing  and I hope that everything about the project delivers for you guys - I will try my best in every way - promise!

- Kelly

STRETCH GOAL ANNOUNCED!

We're doing so well here that if we can hit $25,000 then everyone already getting the hardback edition (i.e. the $50 Ultimate Badass Level) and up, will receive an upgraded hardback edition that includes a section of full color Stephanie Hans illustrations - the three you've already seen (the cover, the Bonnie vs. Lola painting below, and the Bonnie Subway painting below) as well as newly commissioned never before seen illustrations by Hans.

Bonnie vs. Lola by Stephanie Hans

Additionally, anyone from the "Sidekick Level" ($20) and up will receive 3 new exclusive postcards - 2 of the newly commissioned Stephanie Hans art and 1 of this limited edition Meredith McClaren art of Lola LeFever:

Lola LeFever by Meredith McClaren

Also, if we make it to the 25k goal, everyone from the "Sidekick Level" and up will get additional merchandise, like this Meredith McClaren Bonnie vs Lola magnet:

Bonnie vs Lola "itties" by Meredith McClaren - imagine this magnet on your fridge!
Bonnie vs Lola "itties" by Meredith McClaren - imagine this magnet on your fridge!

I have been absolutely floored by your interest and support - not to mention funds. I hope we can all get across that 25k line because I would just LOVE to see the hardcover with Stephanie's illustrations - THAT will truly be a one of a kind thing to own!

Thanks again for the big push forward in these last days!

FAQ

  • I've realized thanks to a backer that the Arch Nemesis and Superhero Levels are not clear about whether they include the digital book. Sorry for the confusion - but to make it very clear:

    ALL levels $10 and up include the epub/digital edition.

    Currently we're planning to have epub's for iPad, Nook, and Kindle. Email if you have further questions!

    Last updated:
  • Please note that while the writing critique packages show a delivery date of September 2012, this will depend on when the manuscript pages are received. You can send your pages anytime after the Kickstarter ends and your payment has been processed (July 25th, 2012). But manuscripts must be received no later than September 30th, 2012. Your critique will be turned back around to you within approximately 6 weeks of receipt.

    Additionally in the "Aspiring Writers Package" it lists the first chapter (25 pages) of a YA Novel and please note it assumes standard formatting (double spaced, one inch margins), and for the full issue of a comic book (22 pages) it assumes standard/reasonable comic book formatting. Email if you have ANY questions.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, the limited edition hardback will be a full color casewrap, with black & white interior. It will be casewrap primarily because I hate dust jackets! This will be a first printing, all hand numbered and signed.

    Additionally, if we meet the 25k Stretch Goal, all hardbacks will instantly be upgraded to have a section of full color Stephanie Hans illustrations - both those you've already seen - and some all new paintings (which you can see rough sketches for in Update #7). Final number of color illustrations has not yet been decided (and will be partially based on how much $$ we raise) but it will be between 6 and 16 pages of full color illustrations.

  • The short answer is no. It does not.

    However, I've decided to sweeten the deal on that reward. If you would like to bid $125 you can get both the $50 "Ultimate Badass Level" package AND the Critique of your work.

    If you pledge only $100 you are going to just get the critique and NO book package.

    If you have already bid on a package - say the $20 "Sidekick Level", but you want the "Aspiring Writer Package" you can upgrade your bid to $120 and get the $20 book package PLUS the "Aspiring Writer Package" OR you could upgrade your bid to $125 and get the $50 "Ultimate Badass Package" PLUS the "Aspiring Writer Package"

    Quite a deal!

    I know this is confusing/complicated though, so just let me know if you have any questions!

  • Most of the 11x17 Stephanie Hans prints (limited edition, hand numbered and signed by Stephanie) will be Gallery Quality Prints on acid-free high-end archival paper.

    All other prints will at the 8x10 level (the Meredith McClaren Bonnie vs. Lola itties and the Ross Campbell Heads, etc) will all be limited edition and signed by the artist will be high- end full color prints acid-free archival high-end paper.

  • Hey everyone. There seems to be some confusion when it comes to the Poster Awards.

    To add a poster you have to UP your existing pledge by either $55 or $75, depending on which option you choose. And email me which poster you want. Or if this is your first pledge you can pick the poster and whatever book package you want and add those together (and email me about which poster or package you want).

    The $55 and $75 Poster levels do not include any existing book packages. I'm sorry it's so expensive guys, but doing a really limited (24 x 36) poster run is expensive, as is the shipping and since it has to be shipped in a tube it has to be in a separate package from the rest of your order (not to mention shipping to France for Stephanie's signatures and then back to me).

    Also, I'm going to update here, how many posters are still available as we go along since you can't trust the reward update itself:

    For Poster #1 we have 12 of 20 remaining (updated AM 7/24/12)

    For Poster #2 we have 7 of 10 remaining (updated AM 7/24/12)

  • Well, first I take a nap.

    While I am napping you will probably all be receiving "Surveys" from Kickstarter. This will include questions like - your correct shipping address, what name you'd like an inscription made to, what name you'd like to be credited with on the contributor page, what kind of epub edition you would like, etc.

    I will then create a massive spreadsheet - "go go gadget excel powers!" - so that I can track all your orders and rewards. If I've got any errors or missing data I'll get in touch with you directly and you shouldn't hesitate to get in touch with ME should you have any concerns or questions - you can continue to contact me through Kickstarter.

    You will still be able to get updates after the project closes (for backers only) which will be status updates - and hopefully some pictures as the goodies come in.

    The first rewards to go out to everyone at the $10 and up level will be the epubs. I expect, barring any major disasters, to be able to send those out in August 2012. I will get the digital editions out as soon as possible - especially because I know some of you have been reading online and you just know Part I is ending on cliffhanger...right?

    Assuming we make the 25k Stretch Goal (it's looking good!) then the limited hardback editions are going to take a bit longer because not only is the printing more involved and time consuming with the higher quality level, but we have to give Stephanie time to finish the new illustrations for the book. I still hope to deliver the print editions (and all goodies) in September, but depending on Stephanie's schedule and how quickly we receive payment from Kickstarter it could be October. That will definitely be something I can update you with as we go along.

    Lastly, please remember that it takes a while for Kickstarter to even process the funds and release them to me. It's supposed to be only 2 or 3 weeks, but I've heard horror stories of 5+ weeks. I can't put the 50% deposit for printing down until I have the funds...so that is an X-factor. Still, I'm optimistic that we can get this done quickly on the whole. I've spend my whole life being pretty damn organized...hopefully it's now going to pay off!

    Thanks again everyone - this has been just incredible!

    - Kelly
