THE PRINCESS WHO SAVED HER FRIENDS children’s book Kickstarter is LIVE!

Absolutely thrilled to announce that the Kickstarter for THE PRINCESS WHO SAVED HER FRIENDS children’s book is now live!

In 2015, internet superstar musician Jonathan Coulton and I ran a Kickstarter for The Princess Who Saved Herself, a children’s book based on Jonathan’s beloved song that told the story of princess Gloria Cheng Epstein Takahara de la Garza Champion, an awesome kid who lives with her pet snake and plays rock ‘n’ roll all day to the huge annoyance of the classical guitarist witch who lives down the road.

The book was drawn by the great Takeshi Miyazawa, colored by Jessica Kholinne, and lettered by Simon Bowland, and it remains one of the projects I’m most proud of in my entire career.

And now we’re making a sequel!

The original book celebrated a scrappy kid who stuck up for herself but was always able to open the circle and find reconciliation with the monsters and witch she came into conflict with. We absolutely love that story of determination, bravery, and understanding.

But what happens next, when our heroine discovers that the witch she befriended miiiiight not be such a great friend after all?

The Princess Who Saved Her Friends tackles the kind of tricky personal conflict that kids — and adults — grapple with every day in the real world. I love this project and everyone who’s working on it and hope you’ll check out the Kickstarter and spread the word!
