About this project

Hello, and welcome to Brick Cave Project 1095. The 1095 represents 3 years, or 1,095 days.

Simply put, we want to release a bunch of science fiction, fantasy and poetry books over the next 3 years, and we would like your help.

Read on to learn how you can be a part of this great endeavor!

You can meet our authors and read their books through our website, but who are the staff behind the books and events making all this happen? While there are editors and artists as well behind the scenes, these are the four primary conspirators to make this event happen.

 He founded Brick Cave. He made these graphics. He made a giant monster movie.

Jenn has a Masters in education, giving her free roam to try out all sorts of new ideas. By day she teaches with the Head Start program and enjoys the arts and sciences lessons the most. When she's not teaching, she can be found working on writing, films, and creating art for her Etsy shop.

Her role(s) with Brick Cave vary, from event planning, to mission control, to making sure everybody else is aware of how similar any particular day is to an episode of Twin Peaks. Her staff Sith Lord name is Darth Buzz.

 Born and raised in Arizona, Amber currently lives with her husband Josh and their dog Sandy in Mesa. After receiving her Bachelor's degree from Northern Arizona University, she spends her free time painting, gardening, reading and traveling as much as possible. Amber is a co-author of the Dysfunctional Family Drink Book and even though she can't detect sarcasm, she loves a good pun. Her role within Brick Cave Media is to do everything Bob asked her to with a big smile! Her staff Sith Lord name is Darth Burr.

 Born and raised in California, Claudia currently lives in Ahwatukee, AZ. In her free time she enjoys traveling to Mexico, going to the beach and spending time in the great outdoors. Although she loves animals she does not own any pets. Her role within Brick Cave Media is to manage all of our top secret information. Her staff Sith Lord name is Darth Claud.

What We Have Accomplished
Since 2010, we have been to over 100 different events of all sizes, published over 40 titles and put thousands of books into the hands of eager readers. Below are just a few of the books we have published that you can buy today.

 

All the while, at every turn, we have fought the perceptions and stigmas of an industry resistant to change.


What We Want To Do
That's not what this Kickstarter is about, it's about the NEXT 3 YEARS. And we need your help to make them as HUGE as possible.

Your contribution helps us accomplish 4 goals over the next 3 years:
1. Helps us get 18 new titles from the likes of Sharon Skinner, J.A. Giunta, Scott Woods and all of our other authors formatted, edited, published and promoted.

2. Helps us get both these new books, and our existing catalog formatted and released as Audio Books (Approx. 36 books over the 3 years).

3. Helps us appear at 36 events that each would provide us the opportunity to sell thousands of books.

4. And Finally, with the first 3 goals accomplished, we hope to reach new  readers and listeners over the next 36 months, and bring new favorites to all of our supporters.
 

We attend 10-15 events a year currently (you can see us at any number of events)- and we want to find more events and be able to bring Brick Cave Books to them. You can help us. Your support not only gives us the opportunity to create more books, but it tells us where our fans are, and where we should be looking for new events to attend.

The more you share the Kickstarter and have your community get involved, the more we are going to see we need to be in your neighborhood!

So, read the updates, decide your level of support, and make it so on March 1st.

Add on Options

In addition to the Rewards Themselves, we have prepared 5 really fun add on options for you. We have them listed below. Add-ons are available at ANY level.

To take advantage of any or all of them:

  • Select the 'Manage your Pledge' Button.  If you have not pledged  yet it will say 'Back this Project'.
  • Increase your pledge in the Pledge Amount box by the total of the add-ons you want to add.
  • Do not change the tier you are currently pledged at.

Brick Cave staff will reach out to you at the conclusion of the Campaign and verify your selections.

If the campaign is successful, all add on items will be fulfilled in June, 2017.

Risks and challenges

As with any endeavor, there are plenty of risks...

While we have been doing this for over 10 years, we are talking about the next three years of our development. Brick Cave could go out of business, or the market could drastically change and preclude us from being able to accomplish our objectives with the money we raise.

While we do our best to mitigate these by building strong relationships with our authors, artists and staff, we would be remiss to not make sure we made you aware.

All of our projects are completed under contracts with all parties involved, with services to support the creation of the books negotiated in advance. This helps us to manage costs in the long run.
