Mind Afire: A Graphic Novel Biography Highlighting the Life and Accomplishments Of Nikola Tesla

Mind Afire” is a 64 page graphic novel biography aimed at teens and adults on the wondrous life of Nikola Tesla.  The project is over on Kickstarter and being run by literary agent Abigail Samoun and freelance artist Elizabeth Haidle.

Screen Shot 2013-03-14 at 9.49.17 PMNikola Tesla was a brilliant Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electrical supply system.  He emigrated to the United States in 1884 to work for Thomas Edison but soon struck out on his own.  Like many, the ladies feel that Tesla deserves to be a household name. His scientific discoveries at the dawn of our technological age—when the invisible forces of electricity, radio waves, and magnetic fields were being harnessed into new inventions—were revolutionary, and much of today’s technology rests upon his ideas.

Mind Afire arose from a mutual fascination with this odd and brilliant man. The ladies thought the spectacular events of Nikola Tesla’s life begged for a graphic treatment, so they have been working away at their illustrated biography for adults. It will be published as a 64 page paperback for teens & adults,  also a digital e-book in the form of a PDF.

The book will be available in paperback and the ever so popular e-book form which you will also be able to send to someone as a gift.
