Personal Monsters: The Luxe Edition!
I wrote a book a few years ago detailing people's 'Personal Monsters' with a few inner demons thrown in! Now, I've chosen to EXPAND.
Once upon a time, I wrote a book called 'Personal Monsters'. It was angry and mean but it made people laugh! For those who don't know, it was a book based on the monstrosities of personality that I've had the (dis)pleasure to meet and interact with, along with some personal demons of which I've had to exorcise and excise. Eventually, I found out that all this resonated with more and more people - plus it made people heal from traumas from these assholes by simply LAUGHING at their problems.
The power of laughter is a tremendous thing, so I decided to give the book the updates and love that it needs to introduce 4 new characters on top of the other ones that I've created. In this print run, I want the book to be sexier and throw in a few more monsters for invaluable observations. I am also giving others the opportunity to wear their own 'Personal Monster' on their shirt in the form of an enamel pin.

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
In this Kickstarter, the funding will go primarily to the funding of a large print run on 'Personal Monsters: the Luxe Edition", a new enamel pin of 'The Two-Faced Bitch, and a new 5"X7" print. This will also cover shipping and handling plus credit card fees (5%). Anything left over will be put towards any other 'Personal Monsters' - related development and merchandise.
WHY YOU SHOULD DO IT:
This book will make you feel like a kid again, but more of being a kid reading stuff with bad words and satirical things about mean people which makes you giggle under the covers with your flashlight. The kid that sat in the back of the class in high school drawing vulgar things in their Pee Chee folder in a No. 2 pencil.
Yeah, I'm telling you, you big, overgrown kid of an adult. You never forgot those books, because they made you laugh. Well this book is for you.
Risks and challenges
Ideally, we would love everything to run smoothly. I am sure the dinosaurs felt that way too until that asteroid came in and screwed everything.
The best laid plans can have bumps in the road. The most common one is printer/manufacturer may have delays and mistakes - despite extreme vetting. I've been either given really good reviews on these vendors by colleagues or have used them personally myself.
Here's the overall production schedule I've got. I've also added another week or two as a buffer to account for any minor delays. These times only show shipment to me before processing. I'm also accounting for the processing of payments from Kickstarter to me so I can actually start paying my vendors to get my rewards into your hot little hands. If anything really out of sorts pops up, I will update you on what happened, and the estimated time frame I get from the vendor themselves here.
PERSONAL MONSTERS: 'Personal Monsters: The Luxe Edition' will by far be the one that takes the longest. My estimated time is about 9 weeks. This estimate includes shipping to me only.
PINS: This manufacturer I've used for a while now. They're on time and clockwork. The production time I've been given is about 4 weeks.
OTHER BOOKS: It has been estimated at 3 weeks time, including shipping.
PRINTS: 3 weeks
EBOOKS: 1-2 weeks depending on how fast Kickstarter processes the payments.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
