Sullivan's Sluggers Indiegogo Campaign to Adjust for International Shipping

My name is Mark Smith.  I did Sullivan's Sluggers on Kickstarter and underestimated the costs of international shipping asking backers for just $10 a book.

The book grew in size/uprgrades to an omnibus edition and the costs of shipping (3.5 lbs) jumped up a lot with the extra weight.  International shipping prices from the USPS skyrocketed this year as well.  

I  didn't freight directly from China to the UK, EU, and AU which would have saved a lot of time and money and now I have to freight the books from California to these destinations.  All of these factors added up to a huge price jump.  

I need to raise more funds to get the book to international backers.  That's where you come in.  

I'm doing this Indiegogo campaign to raise the difference by offering the book to US backers so that I don't have to ask international backers for more and so that I can ship out the books to international backers at the original price of just $10 added for shipping.  

Each US order gets the book out to an international backer because the books are printed and there are no extra costs other than shipping and handling in the US.

I'll also be printing Sullivan's Sluggers stickers for international orders and possibly a few other extra goodies. 

My goal is to wrap up the original Kickstarter in the next two months, get this book behind me, and move on to new projects that are better planned.

I'm offering Sullivan's Sluggers for a month for US BACKERS who missed out the first time for a chance to get their own glorious 200 page Deluxe Omnibus Sized Hardcover (3.5 lbs) with a thick quality slipcase cover, a print in the inside front cover, a baseball card sheet in the inside back cover, dangling bound in ribbon bookmark, and a three page fold out monster gate fold. 

All books come shrink-wrapped.

What We Need & What You Get

I used another campaign as a template that said to add $10 per book for international and since then rates have skyrocketed.  I also didn't ship straight from the printer in China to the UK, Europe, and Australia, making costs go up even more.

I'm doing this Indiegogo campaign to raise the difference by offering the book to US backers so that I don't have to ask international backers for more.  Each US order gets the book out to international backers.  

As of now most of the US orders are done and we're starting on shipping for Canada on the original Kickstarter.  We've got about 600 international orders left to ship.

About 'Sullivan's Sluggers'.

Sullivan's Sluggers is a baseball horror graphic novel written by Mark Andrew Smith with art by James Stokoe (Orc Stain). 

The Story...

Long past their former glory, the minor league Sluggers get an invitation to play a baseball game in a cursed small town. After the 7th inning stretch, the sun goes down, and the dysfunctional teammates find themselves fighting for their lives against a town of flesh-eating monsters!

Now, it's up to coach Casey Sullivan to help his team escape from being the next dish in the town's terrifying feeding frenzy!

Eisner & Harvey Award-winning graphic novel author Mark Andrew Smith joins forces with Eisner nominated illustrator James Stokoe for a gripping roller coaster of a graphic novel, packed with shocks, gore, and screamingly outrageous humor, when America's Favorite Past Time becomes one team's ultimate nightmare!

Sullivan's Sluggers is a 200 page Deluxe Omnibus Sized Hardcover (3.5 lbs) with a thick quality slipcase cover, a print in the inside front cover, a baseball card sheet in the inside back cover, dangling bound in ribbon bookmark, and a three page fold out monster gate-fold. 

All books come shrink wrapped.
