Join Asbestos on his quest to restore the magic to the Land of Possible. This is the first in a series of stories in which you'll meet Asbestos (the dragon whelp) and many of his friends!
This project is for a complete and professional printing of Christmas Fire, the first of Asbestos' adventures. Your pledges will fund the printing of the book with a *whole* new color cover, color illustrations inside and professional binding.
-When do you expect to ship the book?-
I expect to start shipping in early December 2012
-How big is the book?-
The book is 20 pages (minus front and back cover) the dimensions of the book will be roughly 6 1/2" by 8 1/2" and saddle stitched.
-Are the sketches/watercolor illustration going to be in the book or separate pieces?-
They will be separate pieces that ship when the book ships.
Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges are few, but important:
I'm not going to lie, funding is the biggest challenge. Without the funding, none of this happens. I'd do my best to get the word out, but I'm only one person. If this is going to be funded properly, I need help spreading the news far and wide!
Since I also have a full time day job, getting the book printed and shipped in a timely manner is also a concern since, ultimately, that is what you're pledging for. I want to make sure the quality of the book is equal to what you paid for.
-Fund allocation -
Once funded, it's my job to ensure that the proper amount funds the finished product as well as the materials for the rewards. I take fund allocation very seriously and I like to make sure that the product comes out looking its best!
Although it would be seen as a pleasant surprise, overfunding is actually a challenge I hope to tackle. This goes hand-in-hand with stretch goals which will be announced soon (options include a separate booklet with character sketches, extra illustrations in the book, etc)
I am excited to share the snags and triumphs with all of you!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
