About J. Robert Deans

HI!

In 2014 I was laid off after ten years of managing a comic shop. The next day, a goofy idea struck of a cow lost in space, and a few years later I am self-publishing children’s books and have found a passion I never knew within me.

Since I put together that first book, MOO THOUSAND AND PUN, I have written and/or drawn over a dozen children’s books for varying age groups across several genres, and I cannot imagine doing anything else. I love telling stories. I especially love telling stories that bring a smile to a child’s face.

There are kids who come to my table at shows who share their drawing of my characters, or tell me how much they loved the latest Stanley adventure, and it’s an amazing feeling to bring the kind of light to a child’s world in the same way that Walter Simonson, David Michelinie, Roy Thomas, or Frank Robbins did for me.

Since that first book, my wife and I formed Deans Family Productions to create books and toys to bring that light to children’s lives as much as we possibly can. However, what I don’t have are the resources of a large publisher like Random House or Simon and Schuster. Your support of this Patreon will give us the edge to maintain a level of quality we expect of ourselves that’s greater than others expect of us.

With this Patreon we can worry less about internet and marketing, printing and distribution, cut fewer corners, and maybe even hire someone to help with those tasks, leaving us to focus full time on what we love: creating.

Take a look at the reward levels, and maybe look around grandpunwick.com and see what we have to offer, and if you want to help us continue our goals of producing quality children’s stories, sign up at the level that best fits your interest and budget!

Don’t forget, if you aren’t able to financially support us at this time, you can always sign up for our emails from our website, follow us on social media, and share our news and posts with your friends!

Thank you for your time!

Cheers!

(Oh - since you got this far - I collect addresses from all tiers because even if you don't sign up for a tier with regular mailings, I like to send out goodies - thank you gifts - from time to time to all Patrons. Cheers!)
Goals
26 of 50 patrons
Having 50 Patrons - at the current rough breakdown across the levels - would give us enough to cover the annual cost of both the URLs and basic web hosting!  (When this goal is reached, I will create a gift thanking all of the Patrons signed up on the day we hit this goal!)
