After finishing the manuscript for Zobop Bebop and attempting to get it out there, I’ve started to… hear things. The pages… speak to me. They say something like this:
Hello, Sean. Look at this manuscript, now back to me, now back to this manuscript, now back to me. Sadly, it isn’t me, but if it stopped sitting on a hard drive and received funding through Kickstarter it could read like it’s me. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re in a comfortable chair with the voudoun noir novel your novel could read like. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s a horror-crime thriller with those plot points you love. Look again, the plot points are fully-realized story elements, engaging characters and infinite potential. Anything is possible when your book is ‘Zobop Bebop’ and not some lady-smelling potboiler. I’m on a horse.
And then I wake up.
Short form, I’ve launched a Kickstarter account to get the thing rolling. Take a glance, if you’re interested. Donate if you’re willing. If it gets picked up prior to completion, the account will go away and funds will return to their rightful, not-my-pocket homes. If it gets picked up afterward, funds will be used to get books to those who’ve asked for them.
Thanks for your consideration: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1475856569/zobop-bebop-a-voudoun-noir-novel
