Another Kickstarter has been launched. This time, I’m a third of it. As you might recall, Ken Plume and I wrote There’s a Zombie in My Treehouse! many moons ago. Art Meister Len Peralta provided illustrations and the book was published. We got written up in Wired, which was awesome, and we sold–and continue to sell–copies of the book. This is also awesome.
Now we’re looking at making the book available in a different format. Specifically, an iBook that contains not just the words and art but the words as read by various and sundry celebrity readers. Not all have been revealed–but so far the roster includes Alex Day, Kevin Murphy, James Urbaniak, Trace Beaulieu, Bill Corbett, Doc Hammer, Jackson Publick, Jonathan Coulton and John Hodgman.
If we make our initial goal, then the iBook happens. If we make our stretch goal, then we can fund the creation of a second Johnny Fry adventure entitled Conquest of the Snowmen. And we have a very special celebrity reader who will read that book, provided we can get it written. That reader is Neil Gaiman.
