What’s the basic premise of your novel, Prison Break 2438?
In a bleak futuristic world, in which the United States of America has split into multiple countries, a small band of civil rights revolutionaries must save their leader from the clutches of an evil government.
Where the money will be spent:
-Getting original commissioned artwork from Dark Horse and DC Comics veteran Brian Ewing (www.brianewing.com) for the book cover, book interior, posters and t-shirts.
-Purchasing and mailing costs for the promotional materials associated with your pledge including books, posters, shirts and stickers.
-Hiring a pro editor to make sure the novel is clean and ready for publication.
Who, what, where, why:
The authors have written music reviews and band interviews for The Chaos Zine, National Underground, Razorcake, and Verbicide. Countless zines, two photography books, and one art anthology has been self-published between them. Oodles of blog posts, too. And don't forget creative copy for national and regional ad campaigns.
This novel in particular was started in early 2009 when one brother started "chapter one" and emailed it to the other brother to continue the story. This went back and forth until they hit "THE END" on the first draft in December 2009.
In February 2010 the brothers trekked, without kids or family or work, to Oakland and San Francisco to clean up and shape up the manuscript. A lot of red marker and 92 digital recorder files later they drove back with a broken set of chapters and notes.
By September 2010 the third draft, a more readable coherent version of the story, was completed.
Now we're in need of your help to be able to pay for an pro editor and an amazing illustrator! We appreciate any help at all!
We'd also really appreciate it if you could share the project with all of your friends so we can get this crazy novel about the world's future into your hands as soon as possible! (All we need to hit our goal is twenty three Super Duper Superhero level pledges!? LET'S DO THIS COLLECTORS!!!!!!)
