When You Bleed to Death is a deeply emotional, visceral story. The novel is about how a disturbed young man learns to cope with his girlfriend's death, and this comic will showcase that rich emotional experience in a graphic format.

A Comic With Style
I've teamed with Monique Medeiros, an amazing Canadian watercolor painter, to bring a deeply personal story to a traditional comic book format but with a fine art flair. We will be using real watercolor paintings to bring a vibrant, textured feeling to each panel.
Check out some of our awesome rewards. Each sketch cover will be hand drawn by me with a character from the comic book.
Every backer will receive a free eBook of the novel and audio book of the first chapter (read by Grant Niezgodski)
Ultimately, my goal is to disseminate my story in a way that makes it easy for anyone to pick it up and fall in love with it. Please help me bring my novel to a brand new audience.
Thank you for reading. I hope you'll pick up a comic, get one of the awesome rewards we have up, and share this project with anyone you think would enjoy a deep and emotional comic book.
Risks and challenges
Completing a successful Kickstarter has taught me a number of lessons about fulfillment. Number one: account for everything. Number two: you can't account for everything.
I've planned the taxes, fees, shipping, printing, labor, etc., etc., et cetera. Monique and I have a good working relationship and have previously collaborated on the quarterly literary magazine that I co-run (Hypertrophic Literary). That being said, I recognize that anything can happen. I'm committed to bringing this project to life and will adjust/adapt/change/grow as life calls for it.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
