Feared, hated, and hunted. Vampires exist, but not those of myth and legend.

They are just like us, good, bad, but mostly afraid. They're afraid of the light, of people, of each other, of being found out, and of dying again.

Catherine Morrison has spent the better part of 900 years walking the line between humans and vampires...protecting her people from the worst of humanity and humanity from the worst of her people.

She is loved, feared, and sometimes even hated, but she's never been hunted.

Until now.

Will Allred is a writer, professor, and technologist. He created and wrote Diary of Night for BloodFire Studios, contributed to the Eisner-nominated Comics through Time and multiple other academic books on comics, and is writing a second novel.

Gene Gonzales is an illustrator living in Florida. Gene works in both digital and traditional mediums. He has created artwork for business training, graphic facilitation, primary, secondary and higher education text books, comic books, movies, and licensing.

Rus Wooton is a veteran letterer who has worked for Image Comics, Marvel Comics, Radical Comics, Archaia, and Dark Horse Comics. In addition, he is a freelance illustrator, graphic designer, and cartoonist.  

Diary of Night needs to be available in print again as a collected edition not only because I'm proud of the work we did, but also to provide resources to fund more comics projects. We need these resources to continue creating more projects that matter to us, thought-provoking projects that involve literature, art, history, science, math, and technology that will inspire, educate, and entertain.

We're coming to Kickstarter to help raise funds for a large offset print run of at least 1000 copies of the Diary of Night Volume 1 softcover and at least 200 copies of the hardcover.

The book is 100% complete and ready to go to print. We've come to Kickstarter to help get the book into as many hands as possible, and would love your support to bring it to life.

Here's how we plan to spend the funds.

Thank you so much for letting me share this project with you

I really do appreciate your interest in Diary of Night Volume 1. With your help, we can make this book a reality, so if this looks interesting, then please back Diary of Night and share with anyone you think might like it.

 

Risks and challenges

As a member of the Kickstarter community, I respect your choice to back Diary of Night with your hard-earned money and have made every effort to minimize the risks associated with this campaign to backers.

The greatest risk to you as a backer is normally that the project never gets finished. In this case, that simply cannot happen as the project is already finished.

Now, it just needs to be printed, and I have been in contact with multiple printers to ensure the book gets printed quickly upon the completion of the campaign.

The campaign, however, will not truly be complete until every backer receives his or her rewards.

If you haven any questions or concerns about this project, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Again, I thank you for your time and your support.
