What is Unpopular Tales Volume I the lost archives about? 

Is a choral feminine opera. 5 women fighting to the death for survival. Women in different stages of their path but with something deep in common: the lack of a clear guide in their lives.As in all the Unpopular Tales stories, there's a lot of violence, sex, and harsh truths (+18 and over only).  

This novel is based on our first comic. Successfully crowdfunded in 2015 Unpopular Tales Volume I:  Red Riding Hood. The first number of a whole new series based on the popular folktales. On this version, Red Riding Hood works as a high-end prostitute in Granma's house. The LumberJack acts as a pimp, and she's surrounded by mysterious but friendly lost girls. 

As we released this previous piece, we realized from all the feedback of our wonderful followers, that there was a lot more to talk about and expand. The novel format allows us, to take more time and develop the character's stories deeply.  

This is a collective novel made by 6 writers and 6 illustrators. All working under the supervision of the author to provide our wonderful audience with a unique piece. 

 

 We have a solid combination of experienced creators and emerging ones. From Spain, US and England

Why are you doing this?  Well, it's simple. Being Indy is not easy. You have pretty much the same production costs of the majors without their fanbase and distribution channels. We need to at least cover our minimum production and distributions costs for this novel to be released. This book is great and needs to be out in the world. There are so few books out there that are both entertaining and thought-provoking. This is one of them. But why Kickstarter... yet again? This is my second campaign. We don't always fund books through Kickstarter, but sometimes it's important that we come to the Kickstarter community. It's especially important for this book. Why? Honestly, this is a pretty niche book. Amazon wouldn't do it justice. It would just be lost in a pile of millions of other books. This is the kind of book made for Kickstarter. It's weird. It's deep. It's dark. It touches places in the soul that the general doesn't want to touch. We are trying to fund something amazing which wouldn't exist without Kickstarter. Isn't that the point of Kickstarter, after all?

 So why should I trust you with my money? I know your money is precious and you don't pledge lightly, so I promise to do everything in my power to do right by you. I've successfully funded another crowdfunding project  before. More importantly, I've successfully fulfilled a campaign before, which shipped two months after we funded. We will ship this book. We know our supply chain. We have our printer. All we need is to successfully fund and it will be in your hands by March the 1st 2017

I hope you will pledge to this campaign. It's a great book and we all put a lot of effort into it. But if it's not your cup of tea,no probs. We'll love if you can share it with friends who might enjoy it. 

 WOW. We've made it!! But we still have some more days... anything extra??

 ¿De qué va exactamente la novela Cuentos Impopulares Volumen I, los archivos perdidos?  

Primero que nada que es una novela para adultos. Con una alta carga de violencia, sexo y muchas verdades incómodas. Es un relato coral femenino. Cinco mujeres luchando a muerte por su supervivencia. 5 mujeres en diferentes etapas de sus vidas, pero con algo muy profundo en común: la falta de una guía en sus vidas. Esta novela se basa en los personajes de nuestro primer cómic: Cuentos Impopulares Volumen I:Caperucita Roja Publicado gracias a otra campaña de micromecenazgo realizada en 2014. Aquellos que nos apoyaron entonces recordarán que Caperucita Roja era una prostituta de lujo que trabaja en casa de la Abuelita. El Leñador actúa como su chulo. Además mostramos muy brevemente una de serie de acompañantes de nuestra protagonista. Mientras nos encontrábamos de gira promocional muchos de nuestros seguidores nos comentaban que el comic se quedaba corto. Que quedaba mucho que explicar y expandir. El formato de novela nos permite tomarnos nuestro tiempo con los personajes y sus historias. Esta es una novela colectivamente creada por 6 escritores y 6 ilustradores. Todo el nuevo material ha sido creado desde las bases planteadas en la anterior obra y las ramificaciones planteadas. Todo el trabajo se ha hecho bajo la supervisión del autor original para garantizar a nuestro público horas de entretenimiento para adultos.

 Tenemos la suerte de haber reunido un buen grupo de profesionales tanto en la parte escrita como ilustrada. Muchos de ellos llevan años en el sector. Y están encantados de poder traeros esta nueva pieza.

 Ser un grupo de creadores independientes no es algo sencillo. Solemos tener los mismos costes de producción de los grandes sellos, pero carecemos de sus seguidores y distribución. Para poder sacar esta obra necesitamos al menos cubrir gran parte de estos costes, de lo contrario se haría muy cuesta arriba su publicación. Creemos que este libro es genial y debe publicarse. Hay tan pocos libros entretenidos y provocadores que creemos que es una necesidad. ¿Pero por qué a través de Kickstarter? ¿Otra vez estáis pidiendo apoyo? Esta es nuestra segunda campaña. No siempre utilizamos esta plataforma para lanzar nuevas obras. Pero es muy importante a veces traer obras a esta comunidad. En especial para un libro como este. ¿Por qué? Honestamente, este es un libro con una audiencia limitada. Las grandes plataformas de distribución no le harían justicia. Estaría perdido en una pila con otro montos de libros que no tienen nada que ver. Esta es una obra perfecta para esta plataforma. Es un libro raro, oscuro muy políticamente incorrecto. Se adentra en lugares de nuestra psique en los que normalmente no queremos meternos. Estamos intentando publicar una obra que muy probablemente no existiría sin plataformas como esta. ¿Y esa es la idea no? Todos sabemos que actualmente cuesta mucho ganarnos la vida y que nadie debería contribuir a la ligera en ninguna campaña. Pero os prometemos que la obra vale la pena y que quedaréis satisfechos con la misma. Hemos completado exitosamente otra campaña parecida. Y más importante aun. Hemos entregado la obra anterior en tiempo y forma. Unos dos meses después de acabar la campaña. Recibiréis el libro.

  ¡¡Wow!! ¡¡Lo habeis echo!! ¿Y ahora qué? Pues tenemos más planes...
