When we set up the campaign we factored in out of country shipping and once you go live you cant change those things. This meant that anyone outside the USA had a shipping charge to factor into their pledge.

Due to new circumstances it is exciting to let you know we will cover shipping.

NO SHIPPING FEES

This means if you pledged $60 for the $30 incentives package, we will be automatically upgrading you to the $60 incentive level and covering your shipping!

So if you’re outside the USA in Canada, UK, or anywhere else, we will get your incentives to you!!

People have asked, and in turn we have answered – here are the FIFTEEN MINUTES Kickstarter Stretch Goals!

STRETCH GOALS

-$2,800 – Random Prize Give away to Backers conducted after close of campaign. These prizes will be Instant Incentives and sent to the winning backers as soon as the campaign closes!

-$3,000 – Hardcover Print Edition of FIFTEEN MINUTES for those who pledge $100 +

-$3,500 – Hardcover Print Edition of FIFTEEN MINUTES for those who pledge $75 +

-$5,000 – Hardcover Print Edition of FIFTEEN MINUTES for those who pledge $50 +

By this time tomorrow we will be in the final seven days, the final week of the FIFTEEN MINUTES: graphic novel Kickstarter campaign! Here is a recap of all that is being offered, and can be yours exclusively via this campaign depending on your pledge level:

... and there could be more.

Less than $400 is needed to meet the goal of $2,500, and that is SO AWESOME!!! I’ll admit I had no idea if this campaign would even get this far. As with everything else, I just do the best I can and sure enough you great people out there meet me half way and always seem to afford me the opportunity to follow through.

I hope this campaign succeeds. I look forward to sending this book out to you and getting your feedback, to seeing your surprise, and perhaps emotions over the story. This is what I do, who I am. I’m a storyteller. Thank you for being interested in what I have to share with you!!

Fifteen Minutes - Graphic Novel 

We've passed the two week mark, with less than 14 days remaining, and just over $1,000 from the goal, will we make it?

The reality is we'll have to wait and see.

HUGE thank you to all of you who have pledged your support, even if we are unsuccessful I have to thank you for believing in this project and in me as a creator. It really does mean a great deal to put have people like you step up and through your pledges show that you want to see a small, personal graphic novel like this become a reality. Thank you, so very much!

Limited Edition REAPER STATUE!!
Limited Edition REAPER STATUE!!

What would you do, if you were told you had only 15 minutes left to live? 

This is the catalyst behind this suspenseful thriller, motivated by real life events from Writer/Artist: Anthony Hary. Here is the story synopsis:

“For Kevin Marcus, what was supposed to be a simple visit with his friend over drinks, has turned into a race for his life. Kevin witnesses the death of his long time friend Mitchell Baker, after which the killer warns Kevin that when they next meet he will have only 15 minutes left to live. Kevin is left with an unknown amount of time left to live and only one thing is certain, the killer will return.

For this was no ordinary killer, but the Reaper of Death.”

Risks and challenges

Producing a Graphic Novel produces very real challenges from Script and Art production, to the construction and printing of the book itself. Currently the full script it written, and creators are in place to produce the art, lettering, and finalize the pages for print production.

With those challenges addressed we are left with the goal of printing the books themselves. There is no one backing this book other than you. That being the case we are making this book available initially as an exclusive via Kickstarter. These will NOT be available in comic book stores. If you would like this book to see the light of day, and especially be a part of your collection, please pledge.

The funds from this campaign will go towards the production and printing of the book.

When we reach our goal all of these things will fall into place.

Should we reach $5,000 Upgrades will begin posting, including Hardcovers.
