Unconventional Fairy Tale Collection Featured On Kickstarter

Raymond Friesen hopes to raise $9,986 on Kickstarter for a short story collection called Fairy Tales I Just Made Up. The funds will be used to cover the cost of printing.

Friesen’s take on fairy tales feature a bunch of crazy characters including dinosaurs, robots, aliens, and more. He hired a team of artists to create the illustrations. We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:

“I like to write stuff. Silly stuff. To amuse myself, as well as anyone else who’s paying attention. I’ve made hundreds of dozens of people giggle. And now I’ve written a children’s book anthology, featuring a bunch of crazy versions of familiar stories.”

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.
