Hello, friends! It’s now 2021, a brand new year, and I aim to get this blog running again.
With this particular blog post though, it is to announce my next Kickstarter which is part of the Sunnyville canon. On Wednesday morning January 6, I will launch Hilda & Richie, a Kickstarter for my first picture book.
The goal of this one will be bigger than past Kickstarter projects; the funding goal is US$3,000. It is higher than my past ones but I know it can be done. Succeeding is imperative.
First, Hilda & Richie are part of the Sunnyville universe! They’ve appeared as background characters in Sunnyville comics.
Second, this is not the only book planned with the two foxes. More books are being planned. At the time of this writing, I’m wrapping up a script for a second book with them titled Hilda & Richie’s Wizard.
Third, this Kickstarter is a stepping stone for future projects. I’m planning to print more books over the next few years and the costs will run in the range of US$1,000 to 5,000. After problems, I’m getting the hang of crowdfunding and if I can pull this off, future projects can be done.
Most importantly, this is a testing ground to prepare for the planned Sunnyville Stories reprint I will do later this year. There will be new content and, in fact, it will be established in the comic itself that Hilda is distantly related to the Von Straussen family of Sunnyville!
We will be launching the Kickstarter on Wednesday morning January 6 so make sure you sign up on the page to be notified of our launch! I’ll be giving coverage here of the campaign as we go along.
