It’s been a crazy hectic month promoting our Kickstarter, but Bree and I are absolutely blown away by the support we’ve received! We are now two-thirds of our way to our goal, which with ten days to go is smack bang on target.

If you haven’t already backed the campaign for this gothic children’s book about a grim reaper who gets bullied, then check it out Only Freaks Turn Things Into Bones on Kickstarter.

Isn’t Bree’s work amazing? Check out more on her website.

I’ve been talking about this book non-stop since we launched. Check out some of our amazing press:

Yesterday I went on Radio New Zealand’s Nine Till Noon show with Kathryn Ryan to talk about bullying, writing, and why we chose a grim reaper as the main character. It was so much fun and I’ve been buzzing from the interview ever since. You can check out a recording on the RNZ website.

Blind and Bullied: Now a bestselling author, Steff Green’s next book is personal. did a huge feature about the book and my story as a kid who was bullied.

I wrote a piece about learning to write for children on The Big Idea.

Attitude Live featured a write-up about the book, as did Arts Access Aotearoa.

And there’s still more to come!

Thanks so much to the amazing creators behind the Necronomnomnom, the Littlest Lovecraft books, and the Lil’ Eddie books, who’ve generously shared the campaign with their backers. Kickstarter is truly an amazing community!

We’re getting close, but there’s still a ways to go. Please, help us reach our goal by backing the campaign today. We’ve got some awesome rewards including copies of the book, art prints, and t-shirts. You know you want to. Dooooooooo it.
