About

My name is Michael Murdock, and I have written and illustrated “Dr. Mordecai Crowley’s Journal of Interplanetary Travels - Volume 2”.

This is the 2nd Volume in the series “Dr. Mordecai Crowley’s Journal of Interplanetary Travels”. A 100 page, fully illustrated retro-futuristic adventure written and illustrated in a journal format.

In this volume, join Dr. Mordecai Crowley as he continues to document his adventures on this new planet. Along the way he meets new friends and foes, challenges, and more while he plans to stop the alien interlopers.

After creating the first Journal of Interplanetary Travels, and getting it funded, I knew that I wanted to continue the story. I have had stories running through my head for years, and it is refreshing to finally get stuff onto paper and into people’s hands.

A sweet hardback book full of 100 pages of adventure! Volume 1 focused heavily on discovering new creatures. In Volume 2 we focus on an all new adventure while Mordecai documents new aliens species and mysterious happenings along the way. 

* For additional copies of Volume 2, please add $20 per copy and message me about it. 

Because all of the artwork was created on the iPad Pro using Procreate, I have videos of almost all of the drawings being created. If we reach the $18k mark, I will release those videos to everyone who backed, so they can see how I went about creating my art.

Timeline:

June - July - Kickstarter Campaign
July - August - Collect money from Kickstarter. Send book to printer.
September - Receive books, ship them to backers.

This book is done. There are just a few finishing touches and editing that I would like to do before it goes to press. After ordering and proofing, it takes around four weeks to get to my door. After that, I can start shipping to backers.

Some Kickstarters take a long time to fulfill. Because my book is virtually complete, I should be able to get this into your hands within 2-3 months of funding, with the digital version coming a lot sooner.

Risks and challenges

The book is done, it is just a matter of printing it and shipping it. The challenges come in fulfilling the orders. I have gone through this before, so I am confident in my abilities to get everything fulfilled in a timely manner.
