Kick-Start Your Monday!

I found two Kickstarter projects that are in the funding stages right now that I thought you might want to check out. Sure, Kickstarter projects are a gamble, but you're most likely going to end up with something really cool. Just remember to never fund more that you can afford to loose and keep in mind that the production schedule can be delayed. I love funding a project and then forgetting about it only to have a package arrive months later.

So the first project I found is a book called DEATH by Shakespeare. Created by Matt Longstaff and Chris Walker to mark the 400th anniversary Shakespeare's death, the book is "an illustrated collection of the best deaths, murders, and suicides from the mind of William Shakespeare." Fun, right? The project has 28 days to go to be funded and they are a little over half way there. You can get a printed copy of the book for as little as $14. It's a steal.

The next project is also an illustrated book. It's called Ghost and is a collection of 13 poems and tales written by Blaise Hemingway and Jesse Reffsin and illustrated by Chris Sasaki and Jeff Turley. The book is aimed at young adult readers, but that shouldn't make you pause.  Some of my favorite ghost stories were written for children. The project hopes to "create new ghost tales for a new generation." A pledge of $30 gets you a hard-cover copy of the book. I love a good, simple ghost story and it seems like the project creators do too.  "We all loved these stories that both ignited the imagination and stirred up feelings of dread that kept us up until morning's light broke." The project has 17 days to go and has already surpassed its goal. Don't miss out!
