Hi, I’m Vera Greentea and I wrote the bizarre story called To Stop Dreaming of Goddesses about a malevolent goddess who takes matters into her cruel hands one time too many. The book is illustrated to completion by the pen-and-ink virtuoso Ben Jelter (The Tumor, Sketchbook x 4).
To Stop Dreaming of Goddesses is a story that appeared in an anthology book called Siren in 2009. The book sold out, especially after an auspicious tweet from author Neil Gaiman, but due to some incredibly unfortunate circumstances, the creators had to disperse, each taking their rights with them. After a year’s worth of waiting for things to turn around, Ben Jelter and I decided that rather than allow To Stop Dreaming to descend into obscurity, doomed to never be read by another person, we would just reissue the story as its own book.
The story is done, written and drawn. All it needs is a bit of a boost to print it into a beautiful book that you can hold in your hands and keep on a shelf. The $400 will be enough to print the 20-page book and distribute it to your homes. I hope to have the book published by mid-December so it can be given as a gift for the holidays. Check out the gift and pre-order incentives on the right to see all the gift options! This Kickstarter is up for one month only, so I hope you decide to contribute soon.
Ben and I invested a lot of time and love into this story and we hope it finds its way into your hearts. Thanks so much for checking out my page and hope you like the video, I dressed up for you guys!
P.S. If you are pledging internationally, please add $4 to your gift for shipping and handling. I would really appreciate that, thank you!
