Hello Backers!

As the holidays are upon us, I wanted to wish each and every one of you a restful and joyous season. I also wanted to update you quickly to say:


CORPUS has finally arrived to me! What that means for you is that after this holiday weekend, I will begin packing and shipping orders. That means CORPUS will be arriving to you in the upcoming weeks!

I'll be giving a final update once all the orders are out there. Thank you all!


UPDATE: Expected Ship Date for CORPUS
3 months ago – Tue, Oct 23, 2018 at 12:37:07 AM

Hello Everyone!

So! I've gotten some word about CORPUS. Currently, all the copies have shipped from the factory and are on their way to the United States. It's estimated that the books should arrive to me in the first or second week of November.

I did receive some physical proofs, and the book is beautiful. I can't wait to get it to you all.

Well, what does that mean? It means shipping for physical copies should begin next month! So as for your surveys, I will be locking addresses and charging cards for add-ons on Monday, October 29th. Please make sure that you have completed your survey, or have your most up to date address on your survey. If you still need to complete your survey, or if you need to make a change, you can access it here:

Thank you all for your support, and I look forward to sending you all your rewards.


Digital Copies are now Live!!

Hello Backers!

Happy Labor Day! I'm so thrilled to announce that the digital copies of CORPUS have just been sent out! I can't wait for you all to see the culmination of months of hard work. At 280 pages of full color content, it's been quite the journey. I can't wait to hear your reactions!

If you have any inquiries at all, please reach out to me at 

A reminder that due to an increased timeline from the factory, the physical rewards are expected in to arrive to me in late October/early November. I will keep you all updated as those come in. 

Thank you all,


CORPUS UPDATE: The Home Stretch!
5 months ago – Wed, Aug 08, 2018 at 10:00:01 PM

Hello Backers!

A lot has happened since our last update! But before I give you the news, I just want to remind everyone to please fill out their BackerKit survey. It's the only way for me to get the right addresses for you all to get your rewards! If you have any questions, Feel free to email me at CORPUS wound up being a whopping 280 PAGES of full color content, and I want to make sure to get it to you!

Now, we have a bit of bad news. Even though we sent CORPUS to the printer some weeks ago, some major changes at the factory upped the printing timeline from 6-8 weeks to 12-14 weeks. This means we will not be receiving the physical books at the end of this month as originally planned, but in late October/early November. I'm so very sorry for the delay, but I promise you, it'll be worth the wait!

The good news, however, is that this delay has no bearing on the digital copy, which you WILL be receiving by the end of this month. I can't wait for you all to see the exceptional hard work that we've put in this project over the past few months.

To wet your appetite and give you a taste, I'd like to share a story from CORPUS. This is PB and J(im), a story about growing up with asthma and allergies by Jim Gibbons and Melody Often. Enjoy!
