I've been a member of the community since the Howard Dean days on Haloscan. Over the years, the community has helped me a great deal, and for that I'll never be able to thank you enough. My life is about to change in a BIG way between now and New Years, and I'm asking for a last bit of help to get there. This is me and what I do:

The Independents: Larime Taylor from Michael La Breche on Vimeo.

My comic book series is getting picked up by a publisher and will be on shelves in October or November. That's the big break I've been waiting for, and it will seriously change my life. I would not have made it this far without this community.

I won't start getting royalties until after Christmas at the earliest, due to the nature of the comic book market, and publishers in comics can't pay advances on creator-owned books. Summer is always the hardest part of the year for me and my family, with high electric bills due to the AC we need to have on. So I'm doing one last Kickstarter on the comic to get me through these next few months and safely into the fall, when things will start to pick up.

Please take a moment and watch the video above, and please consider pledging. Even $5 helps. This is my final push - there are only 5 days left, and I'm only $550 short of my goal.

Thank you all so much for your support!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
