Scarlet Huntress has been a passion and a long journey for us. We have worked hard to develop the characters, back stories, and story arcs to keep readers interested. The original book, Scarlet Huntress #1, came out in 2006 but Scarlet first appeared in two other anthology books called Portal. After seeing great reviews and success with #1 we took our time developing the next phase of the story and published Scarlet Huntress #2 in 2011. Soon after came the ancillary books Scarlet’s Guide to Cryptids and a children’s book version Little Red Riding Hood: Origins of a Huntress. People have been asking for more stories and more books so we’ve come up with this kickstarter to help fund our and everyone else’s dreams of seeing more Scarlet Huntress hitting the shelves.
This kickstarter will allow Sean to take time away from other paying work to finish the art on the new Scarlet Huntress book. The stories have been written, and cover is done, and now we just need the time and the money to finish the art and get it published and into the hands of readers. People all over the country and some international readers have been asking for new material, but it’s hard to justify getting the art finished when we also need to put food on the table and stay afloat as a family. This is where the wonderful idea of kickstarter comes in – it allows us to seek funds to help produce this awesome new work!
This new book is a collection of 3 stories, each of which have a very different theme and style because they’ve been written by 3 different writers (John Barker, Bryan (Stratos) K. Borgman, and regular Scarlet Huntress writer Stephanie Forney.
A little history…
