Jon Del Arroz is known as the leading Hispanic voice in science fiction. He's run 3 successful crowdfunds for his comic book work, and released 9 prose books in science fiction and fantasy. His books have been #1 bestsellers, won awards, and been hailed by readers as a return to the classic sense of wonder that sci-fi promised.
What's The Crowdfund For?
The crowdfund will pay for the set up fees for the printer, the formatting involved in making hardcovers, and print costs. This is a Quickstarter- simple and only running for 15 days so we can get these books out quick!
Risks and challenges
I've successfully delivered on three crowdfunds for graphic novels: Flying Sparks Volumes 1 and 2 and The Ember War. When this project launches, the books are already complete. I do not anticipate any problems. However, if there are any shipping delays or hiccups with the printer, you'll be the first to know. The book will be published by Superversive Press, a small press which has been in print for over three years with more than a dozen books in print.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
