a place for zinesters - writers and readers
After ten years of messing about with some very dark matter indeed there is a certain irony that a little while ago a US production company approached illustrator Lawrence Elwick and myself, expressing an interest in producing a series of books featuring a character we had been enjoying making up stories for called 'Lil' - a little girl who never speaks but goes off on some very cool adventures.
And to this end we've just started a Kickstarter campaign to try and send her off on a few more.
If you're not familiar with Kickstarter, it's one of a new breed of indie funding initiatives where people are asked to pledge a token of financial support to an arts project in exchange for a 'reward'.
For instance, with our project, if you pledge $10 you'll get copies of the first two Lil books which will be 5.75" inch square, full colour, heavy stock board books. Bargain!
Backers are only charged if projects raise their full target amount and all pledges go through Amazon so if you already have an Amazon account it's very easy to pledge and the more you pledge, the better the rewards - and we've got some pretty cool rewards even if I do say so myself.

Any and all support for Lil much appreciated!
