The Book

Fishbones was a labor of love. It was only with the support of friends and followers that it managed to be completed and every one of you has my deepest gratitude. Printing the book itself is the last step in this project and I hope that you will be as excited to hold it in your hands as I am.

The final book is around 165,000 words and 450 pages (may change after additional edits) with a cover design by Alexxander Dovelin. It will be printed in a standard US trade size (6 x 9 inches). The hardcover will be printed with a matte dust jacket.

The first twenty chapters can be read on the novel website.

You can also read the webcomic to familiarize yourself with the characters and world.

Extra Books

If you would like an extra book or item, please add the following amount to your order. When the project is completed, you can specify what the extra amount was for in the comment box. Note: If you want an extra item, your tier must already include that item. If your tier's book is signed, your extra book will also be signed.

Extra paperback: $25
Extra hardcover: $40
Extra set of four postcards: $5
Extra T-Shirt: $20

Shipping

Unsigned books will be shipped directly from the printer. I won't be able to do any quality control in this case, so please keep that in mind. Shipping is included for US orders and extra for international.

Signed books will come to me, receive a loving signature, and then be shipped to you with a set of four postcards. This process will take a bit longer as they will be sent to you from Japan. Shipping is the same price (included) for all countries.

Postcard Designs

 If choosing a tier with postcards, you will receive one of each design (four total).

T-Shirts

If choosing a tier with a T-Shirt (modeled by Lauren Mori above), you will receive one shirt with the Fishbones crest (designed by Jisuk Cho, Remy Fransen, and Kim Cassin). You will be able to choose the size when you pay.
