Beyond The Ordinary is set on the country side of Sweden, where we meet Beive, a new girl in town.

It starts off with her needing to get home from school and takes a shortcut which... Doesn't seem to be the shortcut she imagined. 


Instead, she found herself with wings instead of arms and a... Somewhat helpful Huldra to guide her home. 

 What Beive soon will see is that this isn't the only weird thing going around the town.

The book contains the prologue and the chapters 1-6. It's a neat little 470 pages volume in a black and white A5 soft cover format.

 Beyond the ordinary is an ongoing series intended for general audiences and the Kickstarter goal is to print it in a nice soft cover edition with the chapters 1-6!

You can find the comic online at bto.smackjeeves.com, or if you prefer Tapas as a reading tool, Tapas.io/series/bto.

  The lanyards will be sent to all physical reward backers, designs aren't final (yet), and if we reach this goal, you'll be able to choose which one you want later. 


  Fieldnotes from an old lady; will have images and a diary like extra pages where (atm) an unknown old lady explains the figures seen in Beyond the Ordinary with sketches and extra artwork around it.

Oh, do ignore my terrible 2 second sketches 8D

I've asked my friends to do some art for me, and let me tell you: They're amazing artists! This will be revealed later, before the end of the month! 

(tbh, I didn't think I'd reach this tier, which is why I haven't asked them until now, hahaha)



 IF! We reach this level, I'll make some charms for you to choose later on! :D

I thought I'd reveal this tier now, as it's only a couple of hours left of the kickstarter.

 Bookprinting will take the biggest chunk, as well as shipping and kickstarter fees... I think. I'm not very good at breaking things down, haha. But it's somewhat close to how I've imagined it'll be. 

Risks and challenges

While this is my very first kickstarter, I have a mentor who's experienced.
The book is already done and once we hit the goal it's going to be sent to the printers!

If it doesn't get funded, no worries! It'll just take me a little bit longer to save up the money to produce the book and it might not be in a larger scale.

The only worries I have is about the shipping, it might take a bit longer depending on how many pledges I'll get, but that's a problem I can think about at a later time (I'll just invite my friends to slav- I mean offer them foods and drinks for their work with packing).

At the moment, the only worry I have is this project not getting funded.
