Hi everyone! Emily here. Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I’ve actually been living in a cave emerging only for some human contact and the occasional meal. But, good news! The book is ready for printing and all is well with the world! We’re totally on track to have this ready for you all to read by May (of THIS year) and we’re getting really excited about having this first part of wiTHIN nearly done.
I thought you might all like to take a look at the shiny cover I designed as a little peek of what’s to come.
If you missed out on the Kickstarter for our book, have no fear! We will soon have an online store where you can order your very own copy of wiTHIN and also some generally awesome swag as well. Stay tuned, we’ll let you know as soon as that’s up.
Thank you to everyone who was a part of this! What a huge encouragement to us! Stay tuned for updates!!
Hey Everybody! To date we have 6 days left on our Kickstarter campaignand we still need $257 to hit our goal of $3000. We are so close! If you’ve read the first chapter here and like what you see and want to read more, please consider pledging to our campaign. Any amount is helpful! You guys are the best :)
This is a story that gives the reader a glimpse into the life of a young Karen as she reminisces about her journey from childhood to becoming a young woman while struggling with anorexia. Karen struggles to find herself while dealing with bullying, family, spirituality and learning to live with a mental illness. This story is meant to offer the reader a greater understanding of what it meant for one person to struggle with an eating disorder, in addition to giving perspective of what it was like for her family and friends. This is a story of desperation, helplessness, grace, and eventually, hope.
We hope this is a story that can be used to help others who are dealing with something similar in either their own life, or in the life of someone close to them.
wiTHIN is specifically created as a graphic novel for a variety of reasons. When struggling with mental health issues, concentration, memory retention and focus are often compromised. Through the use of illustration, we hope to aid the reader as they journey through the story with ease and potentially greater detail than if they were reading only the words on a page.
