It’s time for a new heroine, a new story to not just inspire new struggling young women writers but all young writers to believe they can do impossible things. This is the main goal of my Kickstarter. The birth of crowd funding has helped bring to life so many inspirational works of art, and is the prefect home for the Amelia Sky Kickstarter to begin.
This sci-fi/horror series chronicles the life of Amelia Sky, a young girl who awakens in a post apocalyptic world with no memory of who she is or where she came from. Along her journey of self-discovery she finds that she holds extraordinary abilities that could save the human race from extinction by the deadliest threat the world has ever seen, an invasion of a species from the beginning of the universe. A race, which lives only for energy, will obtain it by any means necessary – the Shriekers. Amelia will face villains like no other, turning her from a shy, naive girl, into a calculated killing machine. She will stop at nothing to protect the friends and allies she meets along her journey, and in the end the hopeless will scream for Amelia Sky.
By now I’m sure your asking yourself. Why should I help fund this comic book Kickstarter when there hundreds of comic book Kickstarters trying to be funded everyday? Well, the answer is this won’t be like any comic series you’ve ever seen. The strong female protagonists and antagonist of this epic are aimed at getting rid of stereotypes that plague even the greatest stories from the past and present. I’m a strong advocate for equality and I want to tell a story that will prove not only men can be legends of our literary universe.
We’re currently in our final week and we still have a ways to go. So, with the help of BleedingCool.com I’m able to now send a wider rally call to fans who absolutely love sci-fi epics, to all fans of love horror consumed drama tales, and finally to all who want to see a new heroine introduced to the comic book world. This new heroine’s name is Amelia Sky.
