Official Press Release
My name is Dominic Riggio. As some of you may know, I fulfilled a dream to write and release a graphic novel/comic book in the summer of 2012 called The Arcane Awakening. The Arcane Awakening is the first book in a trilogy brought to you by my company Mess Bucket Comics. Thanks to private investors and more than two years of relentless hard work I realized my goal and am very pleased with the results.
My dream is to make this a full time job and ultimately make The Arcane into a movie. In order to achieve these goals I need to finish the next two books of the trilogy.
Thankfully, there is a website called Kickstarter.com. For those of you not familiar with the website I will keep the explanation as brief as possible. Here is my Kickstarter project.
Kickstarter is a project funding website that provides people with a dream (like me) reach their monetary goals. Kickstarter is the most successful crowd funding site in the world. Kickstarter was had 32,961 successfully funded projects and raised 363 million successful dollars http://www.kickstarter.com/help/stats.
On the right side of the page, the site lists the reward options. The rewards (or donations) range from $10 to $10,000. Instead of just donating money you will get a prize for your donation. These prizes range from (depending on donation size) a digital copy of current/future books to personalized sketches from the artists and a trip to a future comic convention.
My funding goal, for two full 52-page books is $25,000. If you make a donation, tragedy strikes, and I do not reach this goal, you will not be charged one cent. If and when I do reach the goal, your credit card will be charged and I will ship your prize as soon as possible. The donation donation process will only take a minute or two of your time.
I would greatly appreciate any support that you could provide. If you have parents/family/friends who may be willing to contribute to this great cause please forward this to them. At the very least you will most likely get a laugh at my expense when watching the video.
Please don’t be afraid to ask me any questions regarding this project, kickstarter, or anything else.
