Cash & Carrie is about two middle school detectives, Dallas Cash and Inez Carrie. Dallas is an tenacious techie who believes in the supernatural and Inez bases her crime solving skills in realism, and is also captain of the wrestling team.
Together, they are best friends who attempt to solve mysteries anywhere, and anytime. Inspirations for Cash & Carrie include Disney's animated series Fillmore, Scooby Doo, Gravity Falls, and the X-Files. Cash & Carrie is an inclusive series on the page and behind the scenes, and is for readers young and old.
In the summer of 2015, Cash & Carrie launched as a single issue all-readers mystery comic on Kickstarter with success. I put together a full volume (Book One) with co-creator Giulie Speziani that was released in the fall of 2016 from Action Lab Entertainment.
Since Cash & Carrie hopped on the scene in 2015, there's been a LOT of all-readers mystery comics that have emerged, and it's time for Cash & Carrie to get back into the game in all new adventures!
This Kickstarter will help cover production, printing, reward production costs, and shipping and handling expenses for a 96-page softcover edition of Cash & Carrie: Book Two.
In Book Two, school’s out for the summer and that means it’s time to retreat to a cabin in the woods where it’s always safe, and nothing bad ever happens. Maybe.
It’s all fun and games at Summer Camp Sobol until strange things start happening. Campers go missing, Bigfoot might actually exist, and what's really in the coleslaw? With no WiFi and the mosquito repellant not cutting it, our detective duo will have to stick together to solve these mysteries on their own. Will Cash & Carrie survive this spooky summer camp of supreme superstition? And who will win the Camp Sobol Summer Games? You'll have to read book two to find out!
Additional stories in Book Two include Cash & Carrie taking on a culinary mystery, we get a glimpse into universe of C+C and find out what the other kids in their neighborhood did over the summer, and there's a pinup gallery!

Risks and challenges
This is my fifth Kickstarter project. I always make sure that every Kickstarter that I run is properly communicated and fulfilled.
While all creative projects have their share of challenges and issues, I make sure to keep all backers informed if any problems surface. I have a good grasp on what it takes to handle and manage a Kickstarter project and understand that your pledges mean something and I plan on fulfilling them.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
