Story

A SEQUEL WITHOUT EQUAL! 

BOOK 2 continues straight on from the cliffhanger at the end of BOOK 1, and contains MORE ACTION, MORE HUMOUR, MORE CHARACTERS and WAAAAAAY MORE PAGES!

256 ACTION-PACKED PAGES!

That’s a lot of pages! In fact, it took me TWO YEARS to write, draw and colour them all! 

Check out this preview of some of the artwork… 

WANT TO SEE EVEN MORE?

Then have I got some PREVIEW PDFs for you!

HEY, ALSO, HERE’S A BONUS FEATURE FOR ALL BACKERS!

The Intergalactic Star Chart in the back of BOOK 1 (pictured below) was a very popular feature. Kids (and adults) really seemed to love finding their name on it. So, I’m continuing the tradition in BOOK 2

Every backer in this campaign gets to name a star on the chart in the back of BOOK 2. You can name it after yourself, or after the person you’re buying the book for. Either way, your star will be immortalised forever!  

LET’S TALK FINANCES – WHAT WILL THE MONEY BE USED FOR?

I’ve been working hard on BOOK 2 for the last two years, and it is now complete and ready to print. Your support will help me get it printed, shipped, and into the hands of as many young readers as possible!

AAAAAAND, if this Kickstarter campaign hits its goal, every $1 you pledge is effectively worth $2, thanks to support from Creative Partnerships Australia! They have just selected me for their MATCHLAB program, an amazing arts grant that will match every dollar pledged up to AU$10,000, and  which is pretty much how I’ll be able to do the next print run of BOOK 1 (which is terrific, since I’ve almost sold out).

THE PRODUCT DETAILS

BOOK 1 – 100 full colour pages. It is 6.625 x 10.25 inches in size, perfect bound with a durable matte laminated softcover.

BOOK 2 – 256 full colour pages. It will be 6.625 x 10.25 inches in size, perfect bound with a durable matte laminated softcover.

ONLY YOU CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

While I’m really proud of Action Tank BOOK 1, I think it’s fair to say that BOOK 2 is a big step forward in both ambition and execution. I can’t wait for you to read it… but your support is critical! Without you, it could just end up living out its days as a really nice PDF file buried four layers deep in the folder structure of my laptop.

So pledge now and let’s get this thing made!

Thanks for your support!

Risks and challenges

While the writing and artwork for both books are already complete, it’s certainly possible we could encounter some unforeseen challenges when it comes to production and distribution. However, you’ll be excited to know that the brains behind my successful Action Tank BOOK 1 Kickstarter campaign (my wife) has once again done an enormous amount of work to ensure both the production and distribution processes will be as streamlined as possible. She’s also painstakingly researched and organised various shipping models, which means no matter where you live – in Australia (like me), the U.S. (like a lot of you), or anywhere else in the world (like the rest of you) – you’ll get the fastest delivery and the cheapest shipping rates we could organise. Having said all that, stuff could still go wrong, but if it does, I am committed to being completely transparent about it so you always have a good sense of when you can expect your awesome book(s) to arrive.
