About Me

Hi! My name is Jess Smart Smiley and I'm the creator of more than a dozen books for young readers, including:

My new book, Fantasy Quest, is an all-ages comic book featuring fun, lovable characters, a world worth getting lost in, and a series of interactive mazes for the reader to complete and keep the story moving.

I've loved reading comics and fantasy adventures ever since I was little, and I'm a sucker for fun and unique paper puzzles, challenges, and activities. 

After reading the wonderful comic adventure Maze Quest by Wai Wai Pang and Ed Cheverton, I was reminded of the mazes my friends would make in fifth grade, and of the silly pass-along comics we would make during class. I quickly filled up several sketchbook pages with characters, environments, and ideas, which naturally developed into a story about a girl with red hair, awakened by a frog.

More Than a Comic

Fantasy Quest is a comic adventure, but it also includes mazes for the reader to complete and move the story forward. It's a comic that you can play. 

☆ I'm only printing 250 copies of Fantasy Quest, and including an original drawing and collectible pin with each copy. ☆

 

What Are You Waiting For?

I've finished writing and drawing the book, I've designed all 3 enamel pins and am set up with a manufacturer--I just need your help to cover printing, production, and shipping costs. Let's do this!

Risks and challenges

We need to fund this project. I can handle all the writing, drawing, printing, manufacturing, and shipping--but I need your help to fund this thing. Let's make it happen!
