ATTENTION! First, I want to announce that the Sunnyville #17 Kickstarter IS OFFICIALLY OVER!!! The final rewards went out earlier today. That is out of the way.
Now I want to announce my next Kickstarter. In the early morning hours of Saturday, September 15, 2018, a Kickstarter will launch to fund a limited edition print run of the Sunnyville Stories Super Special #2. Approximately twenty-five copies of this 68 page comic will be printed.
Its contents will be Sunnyville Stories #15, Sunnyville Stories #16 and a bonus three-page story NOT available anywhere else! Each copy will be signed & numbered by me much like with the first Sunnyville Super Special. The goal that we aim to raise will be a total of US$250. So now let’s take a look at the breakdown of those costs, shall we?
Twenty-five copies of the 68-page comic will cost about US$102.50 plus 13.65 to ship them to me.
Mailing them out to backers is next. Mailing out about 17 copies to domestic backers at an estimated first class mail rate of 3.46 each will run to about 58.82 with international mail to roughly 3 backers abroad would run 37.50.
That runs to a total of 212.47. We have to tack on 10% to that (3-5% for processing fees and 5% taken by Kickstarter) which brings up the total to 233.71. With some extra money added on (for any contingencies), the total we aim to raise will be US$250 all together.
Now we’ll get onto the good stuff – the rewards!
Anyone pledging just US$1 will get their name printed in the book as thanks.
Anyone pledging US$4 will get their name in the book and a free PDF copy of the Sunnyville Super Special #2!
Anyone pledging US$8 will get their name in the book, a free PDF copy and a signed & numbered copy of the Sunnyville Super Special mailed out to them ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD! Yes, even if you live in Canada, the United Kingdom, Japan, etc, you can still get my comics.
I have two special rewards planned. There will be an “early bird” special that will run the first 72 hours of the Kickstarter campaign and will be limited to only 5 backers. The first 5 backers to pledge US$10 in the first 72 hours of the campaign will get their name IN BIG LETTERS printed in the book, a free PDF copy, a signed & numbered copy of the Sunnyville Super Special mailed out to them plus you will get one of 4×6 watercolor artwork of the Sunnyville characters with your comic (my choice).
That photo is of the artwork I’m offering as part of the $10 early bird reward and the next one I’m going to talk about.
Anyone who pledges US$100 will get a very special reward – this will be limited to ONLY ONE BACKER. Anyone pledging that will get their name IN GIANT LETTERS printed in the book, a free PDF copy and a signed & numbered copy of the Sunnyville Super Special #2 mailed out to them. But wait – there’s more! You will also get four of those 4×6 watercolor sketch cards picture above (my choice) and you will get to own the original cover artwork I’m using for the Sunnyville Super Special #2 cover!
This will launch on Sat. Sept. 15 and we will keep everyone posted on the launch date plus Kickstarter details. Get your money ready and spread the word, Sunnyville fans. Until next time!
