WHAT IS THIS KICKSTARTER ALL ABOUT?Hi! My name is Erin Wilson and I'm trying to write a graphic novel called SNOWBIRD. If you want to read the first five pages of SNOWBIRD, you can do so on the front page of my website at...WWW.ERROAR.COMThis kickstarter campaign is for the funds to drop eveyrthing and draw for four months and then print one thousand of the 100 page book
WHAT ARE YOU WRITING THE NOVEL ABOUT? The winter of 2010 I lived in New Orleans, and a series of traumatic events took place. I came to town with a broken heart, hoping to find time to recover. What I found instead was a winter where members of my community suffered violent assault, nine people died, our creative efforts during Mardi Gras fell prey to police brutality, ending with a police raid of our infoshop, The Iron Rail Collective. I am writing this story as a witness to the events that took place, but also to remind those who were there about the good things that happened, too. It was one of the most important winters of my life, and I don't want to forget it.
