Emily Hu (also colorist Gloria Caeli and Fahrize Kamaputra; letterer Troy Peteri etc), and funding publication through Kickstarter... captivates me as much as the characters in her steampunk fable of ghost hunters partnered with some of my favorite heroes from science history ( "Tesla" is much more than a cool car)....
Below is 1916 "Blue Portrait of Nikola Tesla by Vilma Lwoff-Parlagha, 1863-1923)
Madeleine shares her "how-to" tips about funding a $10K and under Kickstarter in workshops for indie creators. Here's a link for info on the one-day workshops, locations and how to register..
Summary of the workshop from the link:

- Developing Your Kickstarter Page. This time, it is all about YOU! What’s your story? Do you have street cred? Rewards Tiers unraveled. Important information about your video.
- You’ve Launched. Now what? Strategies to maintain momentum during the campaign. Timing is everything.

And the cost??? Only $40!!!
