Raising Dragons Graphic Novel | Update 4

I've got BIG NEWS for everyone who is looking forward to the Raising Dragons Graphic Novel.

    For the next 30 days or so (until May 23rd, 2013), I will be holding a kickstarter project campaign for this book. What does that mean? Kickstarter is a venue for crowd funding. It means, that people are given the opportunity to financially support projects, and as a token of gratitude, they can earn really unique rewards that are not offered anywhere else.

To find out more about what I'm referring to, keep reading!

I'm going to be honest here. I need your help.

    Illustrating this entire graphic novel is a lot of work. I have successfully completed three pages, which are located at the end of this post just for you. But that still leaves 147 more to go. Summer of 2014 is going to be here before I know it, and in order to have this book finished on time, I need the resources and funding that can only come from you, the fans.
Kickstarter Crowd Funding
    The RAISING DRAGONS GRAPHIC NOVEL is now on Kickstarter.

    Kickstarter's policy is ALL OR NOTHING funding. If my minimum goal is not met, then no money trades hands. It protects everyone that way. There very little risk for the person who pledges.

    This project will only be funded if at least $15,000 is pledged by Thursday May 23, 1:26pm EDT.

    If you pledge to help this project you won't go unrewarded. I'm offering some prizes that are really one-of-a-kind.

    There is the opportunity to be illustrated in the graphic novel itself or have an exclusive 4 page bonus story featuring you and the main cast ofRaising Dragons.

    Other prizes include signed copies of the book when it's released as well as a rare chance to get a limited special edition copy of the book with lots of extras.

    Finally, the top three prizes include my original drawings and the benefit of having both Bryan Davis and I come to your town for the launch party of the book, sometime next year.

    Look through the list of prizes for yourself! Hurry, some of them are limited in quantity, so once they're gone that's it!


    To show my appreciation for your interest in this project, I will share 3 pages that are a part of the final book. Please enjoy what you see. If you help fund this project, there will be more. I guarantee it.

    I can't stress this enough. I need your help. If you are unable to contribute financially to this project, then I ask for your help in promoting this project. Please share this post, or the link to the kickstarter project directly to your friends and family.

    Let the world know. It's now or never! We have less than a month to get there, and I believe we can do it. Will you help me?
