Sir, Butler and Boy is a sneaky glimpse into the secret lives of three Victorian men, John, a groundskeeper, Arthur, a valet and James, their young master. Behind closed doors they shed their places and invert roles, becoming the Sir, Butler and Boy of the series namesake.

The full story just finished and is available to be read online here if you'd like a taste. (Heed the warnings, it's filthy, and NOT SAFE FOR WORK) 

It has 16 Issues in total, ranging from ten to twenty-five pages, each a filthy little vignette of the lives these three gentlemen lived together. Fan favourites include, Beating Around the Bush, A Spit Shine and of course, Double Entry Bookkeeping.

So far these have been published as individual comics, but with your porn patronage that could all change...

Measuring 12x8.5 inches (30x21cm) and weighing up to a whopping two kilograms on specially selected off-white matt paper. 260+ pages, including spot red colouring for the wax effects in 'Love Letters'. A removable dust jacket and underneath bound in faux black leather with a red foil monogram seal (for those who need to hide things in plain sight). Curved spine, red bookmark ribbon and stitched binding to keep this book perfect for years to come. 

If you like your book porn and your porn in books, you've come to the right place. 

With rewards ranging from £5-£500 I hope there's something here to suit all pockets. As well as these, all backers large and small will have access to behind the scenes previews of the book in progress, culminating in a digital preview edition before the book goes to print. We are living in a modern age after all, and I know something like this is rather hard to read on the train.

 

 

 

 

 

PHEW- That's a lot of fancy things! Now to talk about what we need to raise to make such wonderful objects exist...

To be frank, I need to order a LOT of books to get this book down to a reasonable retail price. Over half this Kickstarter is printing costs, followed shortly by shipping costs as it's such a weighty edition. 

I could make the book less fancy to cut costs... but I'll always regret that I did not at least try to make the book of my (and hopefully your) dreams.

I've done my sums and I'm going to need to sell approximately 200 books to achieve this. My previous kickstarter projects attracted between 300-600 people, so while £10,000 is a terrifyingly big number, it is within reach. 

And if we happen to over fund, I've got some ideas for that too...

 

These 16 stories make a lovely book, but I still have two ideas for twisted tales that would easily slip inside the other volumes. If we are lucky enough to meet target, the first two stretch goals are to include these. This would increase the delivery time as I'd have to draw them, but you'd be able to read them as I go!

I'll announce other goals if we get near them, I don't want to tease if we don't succeed.

Sir, Butler and Boy, Also Known As "Gay Butt-lers". It's ridiculous, riddled with puns, kinky sex, hurty men and hand achingly drawn backgrounds. 

If that's your cup of tea, please, come indulge with me.

Risks and challenges

The comic is finished so it's just a case of editing it all to send off to print. If we are lucky enough to hit stretch goals for extra stories I will be extending the expected delivery time while I complete those book extras, but I've been doing this long enough to know how much work I can produce in that time frame.

This is my fifth kickstarter project and I have successfully fulfilled all of my previous ones. I had printer problems with my last kickstarter but I kept backers up to date with what was happening. When it was clear things had gone wrong I put my own money from savings into reprinting the books, then took the old printers to court and won. In short, I do not mess around.
