YA Superhero Tale on Kickstarter

Author Brendan Halpin has raised more than $3,500 for his young-adult superhero tale, Enter the Bluebird. Halpin will use the funds to hire an editor and cover artist, printing on the Harvard Book Store’s espresso machine.

We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think?

Here’s more about the project: “Enter the Bluebird is the story of Julie Rouge, who’s nearly 16 and can’t wait to join her mother, the masked crimefighter Red Talon, patrolling the crime-ridden streets of New Edinburgh. Unfortunately, Julie’s mom has disappeared, and, while searching for her, Julie is going to discover that the city she calls home is even nastier, more corrupt, and riddled with toxic secrets than she ever knew.”

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.
