About

Sir Calogrenant is coming of age and discovering herself. Help to bring her story to print as a full-color graphic novel.

 Calogrenant is a web comic which relates the story of a newly-dubbed knight of King Arthur's Round Table who is transformed into a maiden. The difference is that this is what Calogrenant had always wanted but never dared to hope for. Calogrenant (or Cally as she is called by friends and fans) must now come to grips with her place in the world. Can she still be a knight of the Round Table? What will it mean to be a woman? And how and why was she transformed in the first place?

Now I am ready to publish the first leg of Calogrenant's story in book form. Calogrenant: Book the First will be a full-color, 90-page graphic novel which will comprise the first 80 pages of Cally's adventures, plus notes, explanatory material, and a forward by renowned medievalist Helen Nicholson, whose translation of an episode from the 13th-century French romance Claris et Laris inspired the story. 

Certainly, Calogrenant is a story about a transgender character, but it is also both a story about self-discovery and an Arthurian tale that is true to the Arthurian canon. 


As Calogrenant's readership has grown, more and more fans have asked when the first book would be released. Now is your chance to help bring this book into being. 

Risks and challenges

Frankly, other than not reaching the funding amount, there are few obstacles in bringing this project to fruition. The publisher, Book Baby, is in place, and copies of the book will be available for order on line at Amazon, through a link calogrenant.com, and from me directly. Book Baby is a reputable online publisher, and we will work together to insure that Calogrenant: Book the First is published and delivered in a timely manner.
