The Story: Jackie Rose is going to lose the house she grew up in, and she will do anything to save it, even if it means going toe to toe with air pirates.

Set in an alternate 1940s, Jackie Rose is a rip-roaring adventure story about a sixteen-year-old girl fighting to hold on to the last remnant she has of her departed mother, her home. When Jackie and her best friend Eddie are kidnapped by the notorious air pirate, Elizabeth Read, Jackie sees the chance to save her house if she can return a stolen crown.

The Book: Jackie Rose: The Treasure of Captain Read Volume 1, is a full color graphic novel, over 150 pages long. The book is nearly complete, and should be finished before this kickstarter ends. I am also running Jackie Rose as a web comic that you can read every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at http://www.jackierosecomic.com

There are over 30 pages already uploaded to the website, so take a look and if you like what you see, please consider backing this project!

The Goal: My goal is to do a high quality print run of the first volume of Jackie Rose and be able to take those books to the convention circuit next year, as well as selling them online.

My funding goal is based on the cost of printing, plus reward fulfillment, shipping, ISBN numbers, and some margin for error.

Beyond the Goal: Extra money raised in the kickstarter will go towards travel/con expenses so that I can attend more conventions and sell the book to more people. I have some stretch goals in mind that I will begin adding along the way.

Rewards: I've got some great rewards for you all, including copies of the book itself, exclusive behind the scenes content, prints, original art, and even a chance to be made into an air pirate that will be featured in volume 2!

Risks and challenges

The book is nearly completed, so the only risks and challenges involve the actual logistics of having the book printed and shipped. The greatest risks would be delays, should there be any issues with the printer/shipping company.

Outside of technical/logistic problems that are out of my control, I don't foresee any problems fulfilling the rewards and getting the books in your hands!
