‘Eight Little Zombies’ Featured on Kickstarter

Collaborators John LaFleur and Dave Metzger hope to raise $10,000 on Kickstarter for their children’s book, Eight Little Zombies. The funds will be used to cover the printing costs.

The inspiration for this project comes from the classic story and song, “Eight Little Monkeys.” We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:

“Our understanding is that it will take 4 to 5 weeks to receive the books (we’re printing domestically in the US, actually in Michigan.) If you’ve seen the high quality of the Lucy and the Anvil book that was done here on Kickstarter, we’re using the same printer and are very excited about their quality and boutique handling of customer service.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
