I was told this board was the best place to discuss a book I'm considering starting.
A little background (I'll keep this short and to the point).
Learning the Tarot can be a challenge. 78 cards all with deep meaning and then mix in multiple decks and, whew, things can seem overwhelming really fast.
I'm a storyteller and to help my own understanding deepen and, maybe, to help others I want to write a story that would feature all 78 cards as characters, props, pieces, elements, and so forth. You would learn about the Fool and the Lovers in a similar way as you learn about Harry Potter or Anne of Green Gables; in the same way you learned about The One Ring and lightsabers would you discover what the Three of Cups and Ace of Pentacles are (I am not making connections to any of those, only vague examples).
Now to complicate this a bit further I saw Kickstarter promoting the idea of Make/100. During the month of January Kickstarter is encouraging people to come up with ideas that would result in a limited run of something (100 zines, 100 tickets to a concert, 100 pieces of art, and so forth).
I am thinking of starting a campaign for my story. Here's the idea:
Write the story
Hand bind it
Limit the production to 100 copies
That is to say only 100 would ever be made in this particular fashion, but if the book was well received I would aim to get it mass produced for all.
I won't say what the story idea is just yet, I want to keep that under wraps! I'm coming here to see what you think of the Make/100 idea and what you might consider paying for such a limited copy of something.
Of course, you know nothing about me, so that makes this a bit more of a challenge.
What I can do is show you what one of these books might look like.
