What is Victoria Jr. presents Little Prometheus?

Glad you asked. It's my follow-up book to last year's successful Kickstarter, Victoria Jr. Volume One. I'm back and more ready than ever to share the further adventures of this little heroine. As I did with the first campaign I am starting small. I like to start simply and let you, the fans and backers determine the path.  

The book will start as an 80 page softcover with Little Prometheus being the main story. My goal is $4000 to print the book and get it out to you and retail stores. When we hit that goal, the fun begins. Stretch goals abound! Like the spark of the sun that inspired this book, I hope we can fan the flame of Victoria's journey to create a firestorm of encouragement and inspiration.

Manny, is this your 6th Kickstarter!?!
Why yes it is. Kickstarter projects don't succeed purely based on the creator. Sure, we bring the idea to you. We ask for your help. And as with every campaign, you hold the power to make a story into a reality.

Frankly, I love it.
I love joining together with you to make art and inspire others. 

I self-publish all of my books through my own company, FishTank Books.

Are you new to Victoria Jr? 

No worries. Here is a little background to get you caught up. Thanks to nearly 700 backers Victoria Jr. Volume One sprang to life in a monstrous way! Victoria is a human girl adopted in to a loving family of monsters. Victoria Jr. was named by The Monster, after his creator, Victor Frankenstein. She lives in a world of fantastic monsters and creatures.

I love this little girl and her monster family and I have a fire in my heart to tell more and more stories with her, about her, and for you. 

Ok, so it's a little girl who lives with monsters! But what is the book about?

One day on her way to school, Victoria Jr. decides to capture the mythic "Spark of the Sun". This is the same spark that the Greek Titan Prometheus stole to give fire to man. She thought maybe the Spark of the Sun could warm the undead hearts of her father, mother, and her younger brother.

This uplifting story of compassion and love comes from my friends and family, who sacrifice themselves for others. Whether it's serving the homeless, making clothes, knitting, cleaning, counseling, or protecting children. I see all around me people who live lives like this. Risking their very selves to warm the hearts of others. 

Everyone deserves to feel warm in their heart. Everyone deserves fire.

How can you help?
You can back Little Prometheus at any level that fits you.
And share it everywhere. I believe that a Kickstarter only grows and reaches others because of you. There is no better marketing than word-of-mouth.
We are in a new era of book making that allows stories to be created without publishers. I wouldn't want to publish any other way than side by side with my friends and fans.
