Owlgirls are coming

So, after some three decades of promoting other people's project (a friend and fellow journalist pointed out to me that makes me one of the longest-running journalists in the field of comics) I’m here now promoting one of my own projects. Owlgirls

On this kickstarter project I’m the writer which was conceived by Italian artist Rachele Aragno. Rachele was introduced to me by my good friend, Dave Ryan (mastermind behind the War of the Independents), who is also acting as Art Director on the project. Again, I'm the writer, and I built the story of the Owlgirls on Rachele’s wholly original concept, and have crafted a five-story arc to introduce them to the world.

Well, the first issue is completed, the second issue has been written and is now being illustrated, and I’m currently working on crafting the third story now. We have until September 1, 2013 to raise $3,463.00 to get the first issue into print, and are offering up all sorts of very cool rewards for people who assist us in getting this project to market.

For those of you who might not be familiar with the Kickstarter paradigm, it is a crowd-sourcing, fund-raising venue that allows Independent creators to seek backing from numerous friends and family in small amounts — which is actually easier than attempting to seek larger sums of money from individual backers. The way this works is that we have "X" amount of time to raise "Y" amount of money to fund our project. If we do that, it is off to market. If, however, we fail to raise the required amount of money, then the project is over and no one who pledged money has to come up with that funding.

Needless to say, we are highly confident that we will raise that money and we will get the Owlgirls published.So click over to the link ad start your pledging!

Oh, and thanks a bunch for helping us with this endeavor!
