My buds at Grail Quest Books, a young sci fi and fantasy publisher of comics, audiobooks, and full-on novels, have the chance to make their dreams come true. They’re pursuing the opportunity to license and publish novels and comic books based on the HIGHLANDER series of movies and shows, but, of course, nothing happens in this world without money.
By now you’re probably familiar with the Kickstarter model: ordinary folk like you and me pledge what they can towards a project that catches their fancy; maybe a buck, maybe 20, maybe more. If enough folk pledge enough dollars, the project funds and the creatives can move forward. If the project doesn’t meet its goal, you don’t pay a dime.
So here’s the Kickstarter page to raise funds for Highlander license, the production of the books, and, yeah, probably some money so the fella writing the books can afford to feed his family while he does it. 😀
Go have a look. Even if you can’t afford to pledge, could you do me a favor and spread the word? Highlander still has a lot of die-hard fans; if we can capture their interest and attention, I think this project can happen, and my friends’ dream of getting their company out onto the world stage can become a reality.
