There's only a few days left for this Kickstarter to make its goal. Please repost to help spread the word!

A Mad Tea-Party is a 288-page young adult science fiction graphic novel. I've been working on it for years, and I want to get it printed now that it's done. You can pre-order a copy for just $22 including shipping anywhere in the world!

I wrote an article for Bleeding Cool on writing stories set in the future when it keeps moving as you write.

My books get a mention! Yay! Read this article (and also find out about the other cool-looking book that's not mine).

As part of the Kickstarter to print my book, A Mad Tea-Party, I’m printing a set of actual playable playing cards with characters from the story. I’ve posted some of these before, but here’s the complete first suit, “Genes.” with members of the Genie.The other suits will be “War,” with members of the New Youth and the Maldivians, “Tea,” with otherwise unaffiliated citizens of Earth (including Roger), and “Planets,” with various aliens including the Vourasq.

You can get the book, the cards, and many other things from my Kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2012328233/a-mad-tea-party-0

The characters for 2 of Genes and 3 of Genes will be unfamiliar to anyone who has read the story, but only because you haven’t yet seen the extra scenes I’m adding in to the book. 8-o

We made it! 100% funded! I get to print my book! If you want to order a copy of this young adult friendly sci-fi graphic novel, you can do so without worrying that you won't get it. But you have to do it fast. There's just 24 hours left!

I’m running a Kickstarter to print the completed graphic novel of my webcomic A Mad Tea-Party. The book itself is going to be pretty great in print. But that’s not all I’ve got available. A couple of the reward tiers include a “set of four prints.” Three of those four are pictured here. I’ve got one more print I’m working on that will be in the set, but I’ll post it online separately when it’s done. It’s gonna be breathtaking.

If you want these prints, go to my Kickstarter and pick either the “full deck” reward or the “king of comics.” I will also include the prints in any other reward that requires shipping (like, the graphic novel for example) if you add $25 to the reward you pick and then send me a message via Kickstarter to let me know that’s what the extra money is for.

Also, anyone who buys a copy of the book (or any reward set that includes the book) between now and November 14th will get an original sketch-card of a mega fauna animal in a silly hat. All the mega fauna in hats will be posted on Tumblr as well, so if you want to see me draw a mammoth in a top hat or a terror bird in a bonnet, all you really need to do is trick someone into buying a book from me.

Sharing this post would help accomplish that...

Another of the rewards you can get on the Mad Tea-Party Kickstarter is the “revolutionary mug shot.” Basically, I will draw you a social media avatar as a member of one of the above political factions in the story. These things only cost $15 which is pretty cheap for a 100% original drawing.

Have I mentioned that I’m running a Kickstarter to print A Mad Tea-Party? There’s only 20 days left, so if you want a copy of the book (or a mug shot), get on it now.

Here are some of my favourite pages from A Mad Tea-Party (out of any order, obviously). As you can see, I like drawing backgrounds. And mammoths. I had to find a way to sneak some mammoths in there. Mostly the story is about two sisters trying not to get caught up in an anti-alien revolution, though.

Hey, maybe you would like to read the whole story? It’s all right here, beginning to end: http://www.jonathondalton.com/?p=339

And maybe you would like to order a copy of the book off my Kickstarter? That’s right here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2012328233/a-mad-tea-party-0
