About this project

"This is the moment I realize the world is ending."

The Barcode Revolution is my debut novella about the end of the world. Arsen, a drug addicted sociopath, acts as a shrink to the few that are left. Around him, self-proclaimed "Barcodes", followers of their prophet David Wells, try to crumble what society is left and Serenity Starr, the last socialite, sells poison in the form of a designer drug.

Told out of order, the story is made up of fragments of Arsen's drug-addled, not quite accurate memory, jumping from before the world was ending to when there's only two weeks left. 

I'm looking to do a second edition printing, plus pay for any merchandise to do some promotion for The Barcode Revolution. I want to get about a hundred or so copies to distribute across California, Washington, Oregon, and Massachusetts. 

Often for the duration of this Kickstarter, I'll release something new, whether it's a poster design, a segment of the book, David Wells' podcast, or some other teaser, so check back often for updates.

Special thanks to Richard Branton for the video narration! 

Risks and challenges

I've done the research and the math for book prices, t-shirt prices, and poster prices, and what I'm asking should cover all costs. If, by some circumstance, this isn't the case, I'll cover any extra costs myself. The book is already written, and in the final editing stages, so there's very little chance of that being an issue.

In no way am I promising that I will be able to publish or properly distribute my book, however I can say that any reward you choose, you will receive.
