Will My New Books be Backed by February 22?

BY GARY SCOTT BEATTY, AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR, AAZURN PUBLISHING

Preorder has begun for my new 80-paged graphic novel Strange Horror #2. Will enough backers order to make the book happen?

Preorders for Strange Horror #2 are being offered directly to my readers through the Kickstarter crowdfunding system. This is the only way you can own the book -- and the prints, bookmarks, and other giveaways associated with this preorder.

It's all happening here for a limited time! Have a look.

You Should Know About Kickstarter

If you enjoy strolling through arts and crafts fairs, looking at work from a variety of artists, you need to visit Kickstarter.com.

Kickstarter has been around 15 years helping bring creative projects to life. It's a home for film, music, art, theater, games, comics, design, photography, and more.

Kickstarter allows Creators to share their projects with the world, and allows Backers to pledge funds towards making the project a reality in exchange for a reward. If you back a project, you're essentially pre-ordering a cool creative project that just needs a little bump to the finish line.

For my books, click here! Hurry, preorder is the only way to own them and preorder ends February 22.
