We have successfully run a crowdfunding campaign in Germany. Now, we are looking for ways to reach other corners of the world. Maybe you know how to help us?
The English version of the book is as good as ready for publication. All we need is a publisher.
Do you know any? If so, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with ideas.
If we do not find a publishing house, we will consider other ideas, like print-on-demand and crowdfunding campaigns. Please follow us for updates on this matter.
As its first language, we launched a crowdfunding campaign to get ‘About Us: Stories of Climate Change’ printed in German in February 2020. Despite the COVID-19 lockdown that followed shortly after, the campaign was more than successful at its end in April 2020.
A total of 94 supporters made sure that the campaign overachieved its target by more than 1000€. Check out the details at our Startnext Crowdfunding project page.
We still have a few copies of this version of the book left, as well as bookmarks, stickers, art prints and posters. Reach out to us at email@example.com if you are interested.
Our dream is to allow the book to follow in our main character’s footsteps: to reach all corners of the world. For this to become a reality we need two things: translation into more languages and carbon-neutral shipping.
So far, we have ideas for translating ‘About Us: Stories of Climate Change’ into French, Spanish and Chinese (Mandarin), as well as the not-so-global language Norwegian. Obviously, this only covers part of the world, and we would need more support to cover these languages as well as others.
You can already now signal your interest in acquiring the comic book in your language. Please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
