Today I launched a Kickstarter Campaign to support my first book tour, a storytelling series where you can come tell your break up story.
When I opened up submissions for Breaking Up Is Hard To Do, But You Could've Done Better, I never could have imagined it would go this far, and this is all in great thanks to you, humans of the internet. You poured your heartbreak out to me and next thing you know, publisher are telling me they want to make it a book! Of course, it wasn't that simple, but it's more fun to put it that way.
After seeing the artwork so many of my submitters responded that they felt better having shared their story, having seen something beautiful made of something ugly. Which is why today I am turning to you to help me take this cure across the country.
Because this won't be any old book tour with boring readings, sitting quietly in your seats. This will be a series of open mic nights where you can come tell your break up story, get a copy of the book, hang out with me and other wonderful artists, and hopefully feel better after laughing about the terrible shit your ex said. And for every story told live, I will do a live cartoon for the person to keep. It's basically the book, but IRL and with swag!
With your support I will be able to bring this storytelling series to a city near you! Any donation helps. Whether it's $1 or $100, your support will be pivotal in this campaign. And in return, there are so many awesome rewards available from me and other artists & communities like Jon-Michael Frank, Matthew Sweet, Scout Durwood, Feminist Fight Club and more!
