Risks and challenges

Shipping is a frustrating reality. In my most recent Kickstarter campaign, Jail Bait & Trailer Trash, I was schooled by the shipping gods in some unpleasant ways. To my friends and supporters outside of the US, a package more than quadruples in cost when I send books to your wonderful countries. Except for Canada where it triples. As a result, have to charge much more than I'd like just to cover this insane shipping predicament, which is very unfortunate and unfair for everyone involved. As much as we all love holding a physical copy of a book and digital is a great option so I tried to create a very affordable digital platform.

One of the major points of Kickstarting this book is readership and volume. I want it to be accessible to as many people as possible with a minimal investment. You also see I'm trying to open up the community by offering some interesting rewards for other creators.

    Digital Ad Initiative

    Kickstarter is a community and I'm always talking to other creators about how to get more people to notice their projects. I link social media accounts like Facebook and Twitter, but it occurred to me that there are other ways to help the community. In addition, it would be nice to offer a space to retailers as well. You get a Digital Copy of STANDSTILL #1. You also get a full page COLOR or B&W AD SPACE in the DIGITAL version of STANDSTILL #1

    Be aware that this pledge is DEADLINE SENSITIVE. You will need to provide the ad, I am not making up advertisements. You need to have your advertisement finished (Standard Comic Size) & delivered to me at the end of the campaign. The ad can be mature in nature but will be subject to my approval. I reserve the right to reject an ad if the content is objectionable. Failure to deliver the ad on time will result in a refund and your ad will be excluded from the digital copy.
