A BRAIN IS FOR EATING
A brain is for eating yes, that's what I said.
They come in all sizes and hide in the "head."
The package is different some big and some small.
Some packing has two brains and some none at all.
There are packages in boxes that move on fast wheels.
But find one not moving and you'll have many meals
If the package is old and lying in bed you may not have long to make it undead.
But if it is young and able and true, it will taste that much sweeter when its running is through.
So remember these rules and follow the lead of your big zombie brothers when its time for the feed.
1) When hunting for packages just say with a roar its "braaaaains" you are after and you always want "moooooore."
2) Always practice fine habits when slurping your sup and announce to the world when your feasting is up (belch)
3) Though brains is our diet don't waste but a sliver. Enjoy heart, spleen, and lungs both kidneys and liver.
4) Sharing is caring so give what you snatch to zombies less able to bag a fine catch. (Zombies with no legs)
[This is just the first 2/3 of the book. We've finished writing the book and we'll be releasing additional lines and illustrations as the campaign continues.]

RISKS AND CHALLENGES
The book is already written. And we have a rock star team on board to help create and promote the book. Since this is our first time self-publishing, we feel our biggest challenge will be securing a quality printer and making sure the finished product meets our high standards and vision. We want the book to have a high production value, but we're also trying to keep costs down and share the savings with you, which is always a challenge with self-publishing.
If we are lucky enough to get a higher volume of pre-orders than expected the shipping and handling of each book might take longer than expected. In that case we might need to seek a shipping and order fulfillment partner, which we have not yet secured.
As far as our rewards are concerned, we have not yet created the limited-run A Brain is For Eating diagram poster or the limited-run, handmade plush kid zombie doll. We will post the progress we are making on the creation of those as soon as we can. But we're pretty sure they're going to be sweet.
We'd love to get your thoughts, feedback and advice along the way. Thanks for your support. BRAINS!!!
