Kickstarter – comic #7 – You Can’t Save Everyone

As you know, I’m giving Kickstarter one more try. My newest comic is Tercona comic #7 – You Can’t Save Everyone.


After school, on a cool crisp fall day, Tercona is needed to save people from a house fire that just happens to be the home of Britney’s uncle. She must act fast to save everyone trapped inside because the structure is falling apart. Tercona finds Britney’s 10-year-old cousin Teodora and brings her to safety but when she returns to the burning building to save Teodora’s father, the unthinkable happens. The house explodes! Tercona learns that even superheroes can’t save everyone.


The good news is, I’ve hit my first 10 followers already! Thank you for the first 10 followers on my Kickstarter.

Yes, I know 10 followers are not very much but the counter doesn’t even register until you hit 10 so I crossed one small goal. Now to bring this number up more.

Kickstarter for Comic #7

As you know I had 2 failed Kickstarters. My first one in 2020 for Terconba comic number #3 failed. I was asking for $2000 and I only got $190. Last year, in 2022, I tried doing a Kickstarter for my book The Taming Of April. I was asking for $1000 and I only managed to raise $400 something by the last week so it failed too.

Now I’m giving Kickstarter one more try. (They say the third time’s a charm, right?) My newest comic is Tercona comic #7 – You can’t save everyone.

The comic is fully done I just don’t have the money to get copies printed off so this is where the Kickstarter comes in. This time I’m hoping to raise the minimum of $500 so I can get the find to print off copies of this comic.


This Kickstarter will launch in April so right now I just need followers! In 2020 I just launched without any followers. In 2022 I took 2 months to get followers and only got 45. This time I’m taking 3 months! From now (January 2023 – April 2023) That should give me plenty of time to get enough followers so I can have a successful Kickstarter this time. This time I’m really hoping to get fully funded within a few days. With enough followers, I can do that!

Should I try Kickstarter one more time?

Here it is, the middle of December and I’m still undecided if I should try Kickstarter one more time or not.

Comic #7 – You Can’t Save Everyone – is fully done but at this time, I don’t have the money to have it printed. This is why I’m thinking of doing another Kickstarter.

As most of you know, I’ve had 2 failed Kickstarters. One for Tercona comic #3 in 2020 and recently for The Taming Of April.

In 2020 for comic #3 I was asking for $2000 I only got $150 and for The Taming Of April I was asking for $1000 and I only got $400 something.

If I did a Kickstarter again, since the comic is already done, I would only need around $500 or less to get the money to get copies printed. Anything OVER $500 would be extra and it would also help me fund comic #8 too.

I’m really leaning in this direction. I want to give Kickstarter one more try but…I’m scared I’ll fail again!

I made a few memes to get people excited…if I do this. lol

If I did do another Kickstarter I wouldn’t start getting followers until January or February and I probably won’t launch until April or May.

I’ll make a final decision by the end of December. If I did a Kickstarter for comic #7 would you help fund it?

I’ll soon be looking for ARC Readers

My book The Taming Of April will be published in March of 2023. This is a rated-R romantic comedy novel. Sex ‘talk’ but nothing too over-the-top spicy.

Can a wild girl find true love? Find out in The Taming Of April coming in March of 2023!

I’m slowly looking for ARC readers. In case you’re unaware, an ARC reader is Advanced Review Copy. Generally, I send you an advanced copy of the book and YOU post a review of it on Amazon, GoodReads or where ever else books are sold.

REMEMBER: The book doesn’t come out until March so I need to get a list of a few people now who might want to read this book and leave a review of it before it goes on sale.

My only requirements are: You must be OVER 18 to read this. (As I said, rated R!) and you must have an Amazon or Goodreads account. Or, if you don’t have either, you need to have a good following on social media so if you leave your own personal review on social media I can share your review with others.

If you want to be an ARC reader, send me an email or contact me via social media. I look forward to hearing from you.

Blog #2

Never chase money

This blog might seem like an odd thing to post on my Tercona website but there’s a big reason for it, I promise.

In the past few weeks, I’ve been watching YouTube videos where someone voices / narrates a brief outline of a movie. Mystery Recapped is one. There are also Movie Recaps, Story Recaped, and a bunch more. I saw how many views these videos were getting and figured out there were probably making a LOT of money just from the views alone. We’re talking between $5,000 – 10,000 dollars a video or MORE! So I made a NEW channel for my version called Movie Rundown.

First, I posted 2 shorts, which didn’t take me very long to make and then I posted my first video called “2 Girls Get High Together” about the movie Fall. It took me a LONG time to voice and edit that 8-minute video! On Friday, Nov. 4th I voiced another video that took me hours to record. This video would probably be 12-14 minutes long! It took me over 2 hours just to record the audio and I didn’t even edit the video yet!

When I woke up the next morning I thought…

What am I doing? I’m chasing money again!

So on Saturday, Nov. 5, I decided to scrap the Movie Rundown idea…for now.

Listen, I know I NEED money to make a living. I would love for all of you to buy my comics. (hint, hint…lol ) and I hate giving up on things but, I have a gut feeling this Movie Rundown is NOT the path I’m supposed to take.

November is National Writing Month! I should be writing!!!

In the summer of 2022, I wrote a LOT of outlines and summaries for different stories. There are so many more stories I could be working on besides making videos. The Molock Powers, Vita: Villmark (Part 1) Vita: Earth (part 2) Vita: War (part 3) Vita: Invasion (part 4), The Legend Of Zelta Dusana, Yami: Kim Sweet and (believe it or not) there’s more…

I’m not a religious man but if I can come up with ALL these ideas in one summer God, the universe, SOMETHING, or SOMEONE is telling me…I’m a writer and I need to be writing.

So for most of November, I’m going to take a break from making YouTube & TitTok videos. I need to put all my focus and energy into what I absolutely LOVE to do. Writing!

I’m starting to book shows in 2023!

Here it is, November of 2022, and I’m already starting to book comic cons for 2023.


My first show of 2023 will be Fan Expo Cleveland. I grew up in Cleveland in the 80’s & 90’s. I moved out of the area in the late 90’s but I always came back to see my family and friends. It’ll be nice to see them again. Fan Expo Cleveland is a fantastic show!


Jim & Dan put on about 4 – 5 small shows every year. This flyer was from the one I attended in Aug. of this year (2022) I’m already booked for one show next year (2023) but I don’t know when that will be cause they don’t have the schedule made for 2023 yet. As soon as I know, I’ll let you know.


In 2015 I went to my first comic con. The Gem City Comic Con. In 2016 I bought a table to sell my books and I’ve been going to the Gem City Comic Con every year! Join me at the Gem City Comic Con in Dayton, OH in 2023!


I went to the Cincinnati Comic Expo in 2021 and it was one of the best shows I ever went to. 2022 was a fantastic year too. I will return to the Cincinnati Comic Expo in Sept. of 2023!


There are also a few smaller library shows I plan on attending in 2023 but I haven’t booked them yet because the people running those shows haven’t scheduled them yet. As soon as I know, I’ll let you know.

The Taming Of April will be published!

As most of you know I was running a Kickstarter for my book The Taming Of April. However, my Kickstarter failed.

For the past few weeks, I’m been a little depressed and feeling down. I felt like a failure. As of today, I’m done feeling that way. It’s time to move forward.

My first comic con of 2023 is Fan Expo Cleveland in March of 2023 so as of right now, my new publishing date for The Taming Of April is March of 2023.

Finally, the Taming Of April will have over 60 chapters. If you want to read the first 3 chapters click – HERE.

2 FREE read webcomics!

When I go to comic cons and bookstores I always tell people I offer 2 comics as a FREE READ webcomic. Comic #1 and comic #5. Comic #1 is called – “Who is Thea Baymont?” This is the comic that started the “Thea Baymont.” storyline. You can read that entire comic (like a webcomic) by clicking the cover below.

After a local barber shop is robbed, Tercona and Britney return the money to the store only to be attacked by a sniper with a unique slime gun. Who is the new villain with a unique weapon? Who does he work for? Most importantly, will Britney ever dye her hair blue?

The next free webcomic is comic #5. This comic has nothing to do with the Thea Baymont storyline. However, it’s an LGBT+ comic so I felt the need to make sure anyone around the world count read it. If you know anyone in the LGBT community and you think they’re afraid to talk to anyone, this comic will show you how they feel. Yes, I know some people in the LGBT community are proud of who they are and they should be but for those people who are afraid to tell anyone, this is why! To read comic #5 – Coming Out To A Friend – for FREE click the cover below.

Tercona and Britney help stop an 80-year-old woman named Madge from being robbed. When the fight is over Madge mistakes Tercona & Britney for being a couple. This doesn’t sit well with Britney. As the girls walk home, Britney opens up about her sexuality, her home life, and how she doesn’t like being called a ‘sidekick’. She tells Paige that she needs more friends she can talk to because it’s hard for her to open up to just anyone. We soon find out why she shows so much anger, rage, and anonymously when she fights.

Remember: There are 6 comics in the series with #7 on the way next year. You can ONLY read #1 & #5 as FREE READ webcomics. The rest will only have the first few pages as a sample.

Some of you might be asking why I didn’t make these webcomics as a free download. It’s simple. I want you to read it on the website because it keeps you here on the site. After reading the webcomics you might want to order them or find out more about the characters.

I hope you enjoy my 2 free webcomics!

My Kickstarter for The Taming Of April has FAILED!

Ok…truth be told, with only 6 days left I canceled it. I canceled it because I only had $350 (which is only about a 1/4 of the way to my goal.) and I knew that I would never in a million years be able to get the rest of the funding ($650) in only 6 days!

For the record, the book was going to be published in June of this year but I listened to everyone’s advice and put the book on the Kickstarter instead to make the backers feel special that they go it first. But now that the Kickstarter has failed, I’m kicking myself for not having copies of the book to sell at comic cons this year.

My plan now is to publish this book in March of 2023 and make it available for the first time at my first comic con in 2023, Fan Expo Cleveland.

Thank you to everyone who funded the Kickstarter and helped me out. Even though it failed, I really appreciate what you did. Thanks!
