"Wizard Pickles" is my first independently produced children’s book. I sent it to several of my traditional publishers, who all said they loved it but it "wasn’t what they typically publish", so I’ve decided to try it out on Kickstarter to see what sort of response it gets. I’ve successfully launched graphic novel and boardgame projects on Kickstarter in the past and now I’m asking for your help in getting the word out about “Wizard Pickles”.
