In Cupcakes vs. Brownies, ten-year-old Karim Jacobs struggles with his parents' divorce and invokes the powers of a mischievous djinn to save their marriage.
Instead, Zimmah, the djinn, warps reality into a place where everything is made of edible desserts and candypunk technology.
Caught in a war between Brownies and Cupcakes, Karim must stop Zimmah, save his parents, and restore the world to normal!
The Kickstarter is meant to cover the printing and shipping of the book. Any additional money raised will go toward editing and art costs.
The tentative printed book specs are:
- 21,598 Word Count
- 5.06 x 7.81 Print Size
- 140 Pages

Cupcakes vs. Brownies is written by Scott King. His previously published books are:
- Holiday Wars Volume 1: The Holiday Spirit
- Finish the Script! A College Screenwriting Course in Book Form
- DAD! A Documentary Graphic Novel
You can follow him on his website or on twitter.
The book has been edited by the super intelligent Elizabeth Keenan. Without her amazing insight "Cupcakes vs. Brownies" would be almost unreadable. The cover art has been done by the amazing Adam P. McIver and colored by the equally talented Michael Regina.
The audiobook will be produced and read by voice actor Eric Michael Summerer. He's a terrific narrator with a whole bunch of books under his belt, including the audiobook edition of "Finish the Script!"
Risks and challenges
No matter how well you plan, something always goes wrong. That's the nature of things when you are working with printers and shipping products. Sometimes there are small hiccups and sometimes there are big disasters. Luckily, this isn't my first Kickstarter project, so I have an idea about what I'm getting into. No matter what situations may or may not arise over the next few months, I'll do my best to resolve them as quickly as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
