Hey! I'm Jack, I'm from Chicago. I wrote a horror/comedy novel called Dog Walker and a time travel comic called Agents of Paradox. I made a bunch of movies in college and high school. In 8th grade, I designed an award-winning Back to the Future desktop theme. I went to see The Bozo Show when I was in kindergarten and I was on TV for about 3 seconds. Before that, I was a baby.
I'm working on a sequel to Dog Walker called, appropriately enough, Dog Walker II. But in order to do this right, I'm going to need YOUR help.
Dog Walker II: Shadow Pack
Ben Carter, pet care specialist, was hired to walk a Shiba Inu named Toby. Unbeknownst to Ben, Toby was no ordinary dog but an “inugami” – an immortal demon born in feudal Japan and bred for only one purpose: murder. Bonded by the power of the Kakawari, their wounds are shared, their fates intertwined. A great darkness has been unleashed upon on the Windy City, but even the dark knows to fear…the Dog Walker.
One of the nice things about self-publishing novels (besides the love and respect of your peers, the fabulous wealth and power, bronze statues in your honor, etc.) is that there's almost no overhead. Movies cost money. Comics cost money. Writing a novel is like 90% sitting alone in a room thinking of synonyms. Costs are low. But! There are a few unavoidable expenses. Web hosting, copy editing, proofreading, printed proof copies, shipping books. We just had a baby, which means my money is not "my money" the way it was even last year. I'm not looking to get rich, but it would be nice to break even. :-)
That's it. Keeping it simple. When I'm done with Dog Walker II, I will pause the monthly fees, and then I'll warn you guys a week or two in advance before I start this up again. You know, for whatever comes next.
