Well almost.  Most customers have received their copy of Emily Executioner.  Others are waiting on mail to arrive.  The Kickstarter was both a lot more work and a lot more rewarding than I expected.  Thanks to everyone who backed!

I will do a breakdown on my Kickstarter experience and send that to my email list, likewise if seeing the landing page interests you, follow this link.

Emily Executioner Book Launch!

Bridge City Comics & Collectibles was kind enough to offer a book launch for Emily Executioner!  I felt uncomfortable making it all about me, therefore we’re bringing friends:

Lee, the owner of Bridge City Comics, is a great guy who loves comics.  I’m fortunate to know him, and am excited to see the work of my peers at the event.

Review: Blackthorne #0

Blackthorne #0

Blackthorne #0 is a Tease

I used to think Colin Work was a really nice guy.  He posts dad pictures on Facebook, is friendly to talk to, and has an awesome beard.  But then it all changed…



Blackthorne #0 introduces the setting (shout out to Calgary) and the protagonist (guess his name), hinting at a rocky past and a violent present.  We get our guy jacked up and ready to go…

Colin Work, Take My Money!

I’m looking forward to reading Blackthorne’s story.  If you wanna see more art, mingle, and see photos of Dads with beards, head over to https://www.facebook.com/BlackthornePrimalStudios/

CEK Stuff… because I gotta make it about me…

Thanks to everyone who was generous enough to jump in early and pre-ordered Emily Executioner on Kickstarter!  As of writing this, we are 45% to the goal!  Please remember, everyone who buys the physical book during the campaign gets their name in the thank you section on the interior back cover.

Emily’s Kickstarter

Emily Executioner's Kickstarter Campaign

The Emily Executioner Kickstarter is Live!

I let the mouse hover over the button to officially launch the Emily Executioner Kickstarter Campaign.  Stepping back from the computer, I paced around my kitchen for a while, then drug Erin out of bed to witness… something new?  A spectacular failure; a mundane experience; a life changing event.  There is a spectrum of possibility.  Unable to back down in front of a, less than impressed, audience, I clicked the button!

Nothing, happened.  User agreement?  Oh, right… check that little box.  Now my destiny awaits, it is time to see what the future holds.  I click the button and… nothing.  The window froze.

“Can I go to bed now?” said my spouse as she pondered her life choices.

I nervously chuckled, tapping the refresh button in a therapeutic way.  This is not meant to be!  Who am I to think people will want to read something I wrote?  The walls seemed to close in on me as I watched a little arrow try to eat its own tail.  I can quit, she will understand.  She has heard me sing and stayed with me, this embarrassment is nothing…  The window loaded, I froze.

“Just click the thing.” commanded my better half.

And it was done.  No turning back.  For better or for worse, https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/chadkuffert/emily-executioner-1st-edition exists on the internet for all the world to see.

I Need Help

This story happened about two hours ago.  It emphasizes how much I need your help.  Clicking a button is a whole can of worms for me… but you!  You are good at clicking buttons!  Those callused thumbs and fingers, are ready and raring to go.  If you click here, or the image above, you’ll find yourself at Emily Executioner Kickstarter landing page.  From there you can click on pledge levels to buy different products.  You can click the share button on social media to help Emily meet a wider audience.  Lastly, you can click here to sign up to the CEK Email List to get a free copy of What a Crime, and stay updated on the Kickstarter campaign and progress there.

Why Back Emily’s Kickstarter?

  1. It will immediately make me feel better about clicking the button.
  2. Emily’s comic is complete; products will be distributed promptly after the campaign ends.
  3. If you purchase a physical comic, your name will be a part of the entire first edition print run.

Thanks for reading, best of luck clicking… buttons.
