Help us publish our first book!

$665 of $600 goal

Raised by 15 people in 14 months
From when I was a wee lump of flesh trying to gnaw at carpet squares I have always wanted to be a writer. Now that I am an immense lump of flesh who solely subsists on carpet fiber I still want to live my dream. I am fortunate enough that I had a story in my soul and an amazing friend who is an artist and makes beautiful pictures. We are in the finishing stages of putting together our book “Damien and the Good Place to Die.” We just need your help to push it over the finish line!

We are planning to publish a limited first printing of 100-200 copies of Damien, and you can make it happen! All proceeds of this GoFundMe will be put toward printing more copies of Damien to share the joy that we feel in our unmentionable places when we read this book.


The Book!

Written by me (Zachary Kline) and Illustrated by Samantha Kyle. Damien and the Good Place to Die is a story of Damien, a happy young boy who lives with his mother in the woods. On her deathbed, Damien’s mother departs him wisdom that takes him on a journey of self discovery! The goal? Find a good place to die.

You donations will go to printing MORE copies of “Damien and the Good Place to Die,” and anything over the set goal will go towards our future projects!


Timeframe!

The book is already written and the art is well underway! The book will be published, printed, and in your hands by the end of September! Due to that ideally we would like to raise the funds for the book by August 30th!


Perks!

Donate under $15 and you’ll have our deepest gratitude for helping make our project a reality. While not a physical reward, it will warm the cockles of your heart in the dead of winter and stave off the frostbite that creeps ever closer. If I ever see you in the street you will receive one (1) high five and an awkward hug that will last exactly 7.8 seconds. No words will be exchanged between us. It would ruin the moment. Also, we will send you a postcard!

Donating $15 or more will reveal unto you a signed, beautifully printed copy of Damien and the Good Place to Die, and our deepest heartfelt thanks!

$15 - A copy of “Damien and the Good Place to Die!” Signed!


$20 - A copy of “Damien and the Good Place to Die,” and a bookmark!


$30 - TWO copies of “Damien and the Good Place to Die,” and a bookmark!


$50 - Two copies of “Damien and the Good Place to Die,” the bookmark, and a unsolicited duck pic included within the pages of one of your books.


Anything higher!

You’re an amazing person who we love and cherish thank you for making our book a reality which we can actually hold in our hands! Also everything from the $50 tier.


None of the money will be used for capital gain and all will be put towards printing more books! BOOKS ARE GOOD FOR LEARNING.


Help us live the dream!

Good evening backers!

Just to give you all a quick update! We're steadily making progress on Damien, and we're still on track to be shipping it out to print by the end of September! This will delay the original shipping date slightly but I am confident we can get the books to all you wonderful backers by the middle of October. We did not want to sacrifice the quality of the book, especially at this crucial final stretch to the finish line.

We cannot wait for you to see Damien, and we love and cherish everyone one of you. The bond we've created will last far beyond when our bodies waste away and we are all perfect skeletons battling for supremacy in the skeleton war. I will do another update when we send Damien and the Good Place to Die out to the printers!

Love, Bee Eater Press

We're leaving the project open until Friday September 1st in case anyone wants to pre-order the book! Thank you so much to everyone who has backed the project. I will be sending out a survey to all the backers soon to get shipping information! I'm also incredibly excited to be able to see something I helped create turn into a tangible thing I can hold in my hands, and I wouldn't have been able to do it without everyone who donated. Thank you once again
