Coming Soon to KickStarter – the Zine Club Pledge Drive!

Coming Soon to KickStarter, it’s the Zine Club Pledge Drive!

For folks who backed CATS: A Sketchbook on Crowdfundr – the files have been sent to the printer! The books should arrive by Feb 8, but I’ll keep you posted if there are delays.

I wanted to address that first, just in case you’re like, “My dude, you are running too many campaigns back to back.” (If the fall of last year taught me anything, it’s that I can do consecutive crowdfunding campaigns and still fulfill on them).

So, the Zine Club Pledge Drive is happening soon on KickStarter.

Why KickStarter? Because the platform is hosting an event called Zine Quest, highlighting different zine projects. And I have a Zine Club! Since I’m not on Patreon (for reasons), it’s a membership tier on Ko-Fi most of the time.

With this Zine Club Pledge Drive, I want to offer discounted rates for 6-month, 12-month, and lifetime subscriptions to the Zine Club! The goal is to grow the Zine Club so we can make more zines and grow the readership. I am SO grateful for your support! AND I would love to grow the fan base so we can make more cool things happen.

I’m hoping to launch this campaign no later than Feb 1 and have it run for 2 weeks. I’ve received feedback that a 2-week run time would help folks who are on a biweekly pay schedule AND help the campaign circulate on social media. So that’s what we’re doing with this campaign.

Now, this may launch before (or after) Feb 1. To get the link before anybody else does, sign up for my email newsletter. It’s free and it’s the best way to keep up with crowdfunding announcements.

That’s all for now. Thank you for your support!

You. Are. Awesome.

CATS: The Sketchbook is NOW LIVE on Crowdfundr!

They’re cute, cuddly little goblins who steal your food and your hearts. It’s CATS!

BEHOLD! I have put together an art book full of cat sketches I drew during the Inktober challenge of 2023!


I got the idea at Small Press Expo when someone came up to my table and spotted The Stars of Fantasyville (my 2022 Inktober sketchbook). They saw Duchess, my black cat character on the front and flipped through it. And they said, “Oh I thought the whole book was cats.”

And I said, “That’s my NEXT book!” So I made it happen.

I had been meaning to make an art book of cats for a while, anyway, and that was the signal I needed to make it happen.


With YOUR help, because I don’t have the budget to print these books on my own.

Thanks to a generous patron on Ko-fi, I DO have about $70 saved back for this project. Which is enough to cover the books getting shipped to me. Here’s a breakdown of what we still need to make this happen:

I’m not getting an ISBN or barcode for this book to keep the circulation small. As cute as the idea is, I don’t expect this book to pop up at Barnes & Noble or something similar. CATS is more of an art zine. Let it be a collector’s item!

As for shipping to backers, Crowdfundr has shipping costs as a separate line item in the budget. So I can just ask for the goal, but still get the funding needed to ship stuff because it’s handled separately! It’s kooky compared to KickStarter, but it works.

“Who’s printing the book?”

We’re going to the same folks who printed The Stars of Fantasyville to print these CATS books…MIXAM! For art books, their print and paper quality is *chef’s kiss* marvelous. Plus they’re fast and budget-friendly, and their customer service is stellar.


This campaign is only open for ONE WEEK and ENDS on Jan 18. For reasons why it’s so short, I go into it on the campaign page.

If you can, please consider pre-ordering your own copy of CATS: A Sketchbook! We also have other rewards available, which you can pick and choose a la carte to make your own reward bundles! Many of these rewards are digital, too, so if you’re international, I have you covered.

Broke? Share this campaign far and wide! Sharing is caring and helps more than you know.

We have UNTIL Jan 18 to make this happen!

That’s all for now. Thank you for your time and support!

You. Are. Awesome.

The Legend of Jamie Roberts Debuts on Crowdfundr

The Legend of Jamie Roberts, an LGBTQ+ pirate adventure, makes its debut on Crowdfundr, a rival platform to KickStarter. Their goal is to fund the second volume of the swashbuckling webcomic, complete with remastered art and exclusive bonus content!

Kelci D Crawford, the artist and writer, has been making the genderqueer fantasy adventure since 2018. The story is about Jamie, a genderqueer pirate, and their two best friends who travel to a new land in search of treasure. Along the way in volume 2, they find dragons, magic, darkness, and a King of Evil who breaks free of his prison.

The Legend of Jamie Roberts, Volume 2 is now on Crowdfundr until Sept 1.

This campaign seeks funding to get Volume 2 in print, collecting Chapters 5 through 8 of the adventure. Rewards in the campaign include copies of volumes 1 and 2, as well as commissions from the creator. Early bird rewards include an exclusive phone wallpaper for the first 20 backers of the campaign.

This is Kelci D Crawford’s eighth successful webcomic project. All of Kelci’s past webcomics have been successfully crowdfunded on platforms like KickStarter, Patreon, and Ko-Fi. What sets The Legend apart from the rest, though, is the emotional resonance of the story.

“The Legend is the story I wish I had as a genderqueer teenager, trying to figure out my gender identity and my place in the world. Jamie is the protagonist my teenage self WISHES they had.”

And readers resonate with the message. The Legend successfully crowdfunded volume 1 in 2021 on KickStarter, and Kelci hopes to achieve even better results on Crowdfundr.

Crowdfundr is a relatively new crowdfunding platform, launched in 2022 to compete against KickStarter and other platforms like it. One thing that sets Crowdfundr apart is their fee structure: In their Nearly Free package, Crowdfundr asks supporters to cover payment processing fees so creators don’t have to. This means more funding for the creator and their project thanks to extra support from their backers.

The Legend of Jamie Roberts, volume 2 is on Crowdfundr now until Sept 1. You can find more information on the comic, the artist, or the campaign at
