The Iron King comic and Kickstarter
Wow, this has been a crazy year for me. First, the announcement of a new series to HarlequinTEEN, then The Iron King comic, THEN the movie deal to Universal Pictures right on its heels. I'm exhausted, overwhelmed, and way too excited than what's probably healthy. ;-)
And we're just getting started.
The new series deal.
The movie news.
The Iron King comic book news.
So, THE IRON KING comic...
The cover above is not final, and we're still working on character designs, so what you see here will not be the end result. But this will give you an idea of what we're trying to do. Bluewater Productions, along with a fabulous team of artists, writers and graphic designers, are working hard to bring Meghan, Ash, Puck, and Grim to full-colored life, but they need YOUR help to do it.
Which is why we've started a Kickstarter campaign. What is Kickstarter, you ask? Kickstarter is a fabulous program that gives you the chance to help in the creation of The Iron King comic by "pledging" donations, and recieving some awesome prizes in return.
Some of these awesome prizes include the following:
-A signed Iron King comic
-A handmade "chibi" sculpture by me (check out the giveaway prize below for an example.)
-Your own likeness being drawn into the comic
-Team Ash/Puck shirts
-Dinner with moi
To see all the fabulously creative prizes go to the Kickstarter page.
So that is my NEWS. And now, I promised a giveaway, didn't I? I did! And we'll make it international, so everyone can play. Here is what is up for grabs:
THREE brand new, shiny, signed ARCs of THE ETERNITY CURE, the second book in the Blood of Eden series, not out until May.
And ONE lucky person will recieve, along with an ARC....
A handmade, polymer clay sculpture of Allie in chibi form, fangs, sword and all. This is the only one of its kind, and your chance to own a chibi figurine before anyone else.
Allie says: "Giant rabid? I'm not scared of you. Bring it!"
So, how do you win these lovely items? Easy. I want you to SHARE THE NEWS. Share it on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, everywhere. Post about the new series, the movie deal, the comic, and ESPECIALLY link to the Kickstarter campaign. Spread the word, because the more people that pledge to the cause, the better the chance for even more Iron Fey comics. Which means more awesome stuff for you guys as well.
The giveaway and the Kickstarter campaign will run till March 12. That's a month to get the word out. So leave me a link to your share post in the comments (plus your email), and spread THE NEWS.
And, of course, if you choose to back the Kickstarter campaign, even by a dollar, you would have my eternal thanks and gratitude, plus the knowledge that you would be helping make the comic a reality.
(Plus cool stuff. I did mention the cool stuff, right? As we all know, stuff is good.)
Thanks so much, everyone! I wouldn't have gotten this far without you, seriously. You all rock!
