Announcing the Sunnyville Stories Number 17 Kickstarter

Now that the Sunnyville Vol. 4 Kickstarter has ended, it’s time to announce the next one.

On Saturday, April 7, we will launch the Sunnyville Stories #17 Kickstarter!

This Kickstarter is intended to fund Sunnyville Stories #17, an exciting story titled “Some Guys Have All The Luck”.  (I’ll have more on this story later.)

The goal for this Kickstarter will be US$300, a modest goal but achievable.  Here’s a quick breakdown of the planned funds.

The cost of a micro run of 50 copies for Sunnyville #17 (estimated at no more than 36 pages) will run around $98.50.  Shipping those comics to me will cost about $13.65.  First class mail to 20 backers (mailing the comics to said backers) will run a cost of $57.80.  International first class mail to 4 backers (I have had backers in Canada and Britain) will run about $24.00.  The cost of padded envelopes goes for about $60.00 and I do have a local supplier on that.

That brings the total so far to about $253.95.  Adding in the fees for processing and the Kickstarter cut plus a little extra to cover anything unseen brings the grand total up to $300.  Those of you who remember the Sunnyville Stories Super Special Kickstarter will recall that funding goal was slightly higher.

Our goal is $300 but there are at least two stretch goals planned.  The rewards that are planned?  They are as follows.

As little as $1 will get our thanks and your name printed in the comic.

A pledge of $4 gets your name in the comic plus a free PDF copy

A pledge of $8 gets your name in the comic, a free PDF copy and a print copy mailed out to you anywhere in the world.

For retailers, there’ll be a pledge of $25 available for you.  That will get you about 4 print copies of Sunnyville #17 to sell in your shop as well as your name printed in the comic AND you’ll get some neat point-of-sale items to promote the work to customers (flyers, posters, etc).  This however will be limited to about 3 backers.

There’ll be a $50 pledge level too for about 3 to 4 backers.  That is still being worked out at the time of this writing.  There may be other rewards too including early bird specials.

Remember – the Sunnyville #17 Kickstarter launches on Sat. April 7, 2018 and has a goal of $300.  Stay tuned as I’ll have some more info on the story itself.
