Hello everyone! Thank you for taking the time to look at The Love of a Bingle Lancer. Down below is all the information about The Love of a Bingle Lancer and how Kickstarter works!

How does Kickstarter work?

We will only receive the $2,500 only if we receive exactly that amount or above. You will not be charged any amount of money if we fall short of this amount. If you would like to order a copy of the book here is how you do so:

1. Click a reward tier on the right side of the page.

2. Kickstarter will prompt you to make an account.

3. Then you put in your information to purchase the book!

The Love of a Bingle Lancer is a Children's Poetry Book Written by Paul Gullen and Illustrated by Rachel Korsen. This beautiful poetic story has a timeless mix of poems blended together with painted illustrations that you'll never forget. This story will keep any reader captivated for hours on end as we visit the lands ruled by King Bandini and the far off kingdom of Fettuccine.

Love conquers all for Prince Bandini: many a King is good at sitting and forbidding, and many a Prince is good at prancing and romancing, but when it comes to Spanish Fancy Dancing, there's no one like Hoochie Coochie Smoocherini. This is a story that will touch hearts of dancers, lancers, and romancers. Pick your favorite reward tier and come to a far away land!

Stretch Goals

  • If we reach $3,000 everyone is going to get a double sided Bookmark with a Tassel!
  • If we reach $3,500 we will have an embossed or debossed cover (the fans will choose)
  • If we reach $4,000 we will have a foil stamp on the cover for everyone to admire.
  • If we reach $4,500 we will have the cover have an added Spot UV layer.
  • & If we reach $5,000 we will add a glossy dust jacket to protect Bingle!

The Love of a Bingle Lancer is a story about Hoochie Coochie Smoocherini, a Spanish fancy dancer, and prince Babaloo Bandini, a prancing posing Bingle Lancer. He falls in love with Hoochie Coochie but his father, King Bandini wants him to marry a royal. The King banishes our Spanish fancy dancer to the land of Fettuccine.

Each page was illustrated with the intent of making the left and right pages of the book flow seamlessly together. Rachel Korsen drew the art to make it feel like you were looking at one large image connected across the pages. We know this story is a treat for children and adults with a wonderful rhyming tale and bright, colorful pictures.

Check out our many reward tiers and please don't hesitate to send us any questions about the different options!
