We hope that gave you an idea of what's in store.  

But, let me tell you a little bit more about who we are and what we do...

Hi, I'm Jacqueline, 

Or as some of my clients have dubbed me, a "Faery Matchmaker," at your service.

In all seriousness, it can be REALLY hard for men and women to find love when it's not easy to find someone compatible enough for a long relationship.

But, as a full-time mompreneur and matchmaker, balancing clients and a family in Hollywood, California, I have encountered some of the most entertaining, risqué, and embarrassingly funny dating faux pas you can imagine. 

Some of them are just too good to keep secret, but I wanted to tell these stories in a format that could really capture some of the light-heartedness of these experiences while staying true to some of the over-the-top moments. 

The comic format just seems to make perfect sense. So, I've teamed up with my husband, Ramón, who has tons of experience with projects like these and is helping me launch My Faery Matchmaker Vol 1 book with his comic book imprint, Myth Division, to manage the production of this hardcover book. 

I helped Jacqui create this series after I encouraged her to not some of the more hilariously harmless stories as a fun way to analyze some of the common (and sometimes outrageous) mistakes men and women make on first dates. Of course, the identities of those involved are hidden to protect the innocent (and the guilty). 

Since I've been self-publishing comics for a few years now, we thought it would be great to create this fun comic and release it along with her helpful workbook as a way to bring some value to those who enjoy her coaching and advice on dating.

First impressions are often everything, so it's important to remember some simple things you can do to increase your chances of that second, third, or tenth date. 

That's what My Faery Matchmaker is all about.  It's an entertaining, fun way to learn some helpful tools and tips for dating in the wild streets of today's metropolitan scenes.

There will be three artists each working on a total of five, 10-panel episodes.  

That means a total of 15 Episodes will complete the minimum length of the book at our initial funding goal.  We'll expand the book as we reach stretch goals and try to unlock some great bonuses for all of our physical backers. 


The majority of the budget will go straight into the hard costs of production and printing totaling approximately $5000.  Between Kickstarter Fees and Taxes, we'll pay close to $1K. 

Shipping is the final piece of the pie accounting for about $500-1000, depending on how many backers we get and what part of the world they live in!  International shipping takes a big chunk out of the budget because it can be upwards of $100 vs $5 domestic, if you're not careful. 


We are a husband and wife team working on our very first project together.  Between the full time work Ramón does in comics and animation, it's not often that he has the opportunity to work with Jacqueline, so when this project came up, it just made sense to collaborate.  Now, using Ramón's experience making comics and Jacqeline's hilarious stories from Matchmaking, we have created My Faery Matchmaker, the romantic comedy comic series.

They're episodic vignettes filled with some hilarious and some embarrassing real-life dating stories - with a little embellishment when our Faery Matchmaker interrupts a date.

Risks and challenges

We have begun production and have published several projects through Kickstarter before. Delays are always possible, but we ALWAYS keep our backers informed every step of the way and we are committed to delivering your rewards regardless of any obstacles that may arise.
