Risks and challenges

Awakenings is a Kickstarter Comic Book project, and like all projects, there may be production issues to overcome, possible postal snafus, and a myriad of other unforeseen problems. But this is what we have on our side:

2. Tried and tested production abilities
3. A dynamic team that can react quickly to any problems, with a flexible fast editor Kat Roets
4. Nick Davis, the Production Editor has delivered several successful Kickstarter projects from concept to full product

This is not a padded Kickstarter, this is a genuine attempt to print a book packed with innocent fun and a stonker of an adventure.

All the pledges will be going to paying the Artists and Editor for their time and trouble.

Production of the book; admin, layout, postage and any other artwork for this story will be handled with no additional costs by Nick Davis to keep this project lean and affordable.
