Row is perfectly normal for a transgender man

That is, if you ignore the fact his girlfriend talks to ghosts, his sister spies on him through his reflection, and that he has no heart. After spending years forcing magic from his life, Row is unprepared when it resurfaces in the form of a crow with a letter from his sister. 

The message is simple: their mother is dead. 

Row attempts to brush it all away, giving his sister control of their childhood home and all his mother’s stories. Unfortunately, with the power of their mother’s pen, his sister is able to make her dreams come true. Dreams of ruining Row's life. 

To undo the damage, Row must return home on a quest to stop his sister and find his heart.

Honey Walls is a novel about a trans man written, illustrated, and narrated by trans creators.

It explores the difficulty of relating to a childhood that isn’t quite yours. In addition, it wrestles with themes anyone can relate to like grief, growing up, and the legal ramifications of losing your socks.

Funding for this kickstarter will go to printing, shipping, editing, illustrations, narration, and fees.

Bones McKay - Author

The writer and co-creator of The Scourge of Ninepoint, The Magpie and Pretty Mouth. Bones makes youtube videos on the topic of comic writing. He owns no matching pairs of socks, 

Alex Dingley - Illustrator

Also known to the world wide webs as Nooska! Alex is a 24 year old trans illustrator and comics artist living in England who studied Games Design at university (but never let go of his love for illustration, storytelling, and everything in between.) Literature, history, and fantasy have been an important part of the equation to make him into the eccentric, nerdy illustrator he is today. 

Jonathan Coventry - Narrator

Jonathan is a long-time artist currently living in the Washington DC area. He has been involved with various projects involving the trans community, such as "We're Still Here: An All-Trans Comic Anthology". While he has been mostly creating visual art over the years, "Honey Walls" is his first serious venture into the world of voice acting. In his free time likes to study languages, do puzzles, and, when the opportunity arises, scuba dive. He is always excited to try new things.

Risks and challenges

With two Kickstarter campaign under our belts we do feel confident in meeting demands.

However, we are aware that sometimes the processes can get held up. While we are giving ourselves the extra time we think will be needed to complete the orders, things can always come up.

With this campaign art and audio still need to be completed.
