What now? The future of Untold Tales.

First I want to say THANK YOU for backing Untold Tales. Sadly, we did not meet the minimum funding needed to produce the project. I have participated as a creator in a past Kickstarter which was wildly successful and this is my first time running a Kickstart campaign. It is humbling and a learning experience.

I've been contacted by other people in the comic book industry with all sorts of reasons why Untold Tales did not receive more pledges. Some say backers don't like anthology books. Others say color artists do not have enough popularity to draw a large enough audience. I've also heard some say the price of international shipping was simply too high. There is no one answer why Untold Tales did not meet its funding. I have learned a lot chatting with backers and potential backers and hopefully will be better prepared if there is a next time.

What does the future hold for Untold Tales? While I can not say for sure I would like to revamp the project and make and effort to get the stories to you in some way, shape, or form in 2013. This may mean dividing the book into smaller volumes to reduce costs or some combination of print and digital delivery to ensure you receive all the stories.

Thanks again for backing Untold Tales and be sure to follow Hi-Fi on Facebook and Twitter to know when the project may become viable again in the future.
