30 hours and $2084 to go

Hey all, we are in the final hours (30 to be exact)  of the Age of Legend Kickstarter, and to say things have gone well would be a gross understatement. We are just a few thousand away from joining the other 4 fiction Kickstarters that have surpassed $100,000 in pre-order sales. How nuts is that?

Seriously, the support has been nothing short of amazing. Not only have you covered the costs for the print run, but also the cover design, copy editing, the production of soundtrack music by Will Musser, plus I’ll end up getting an advance…something that usually only happens when you sign a traditional deal. And since traditional publishing isn’t something I can’t do for this project (because the audio rights were previously sold and no traditional big-five publisher will take on a project without those rights), that’s a tremendous gift you’ve given me.

In return for the amazing support, I’m able to give back to the backers who pre-order by offering things you just can’t get when buying through the store. Here is the current list.

  • ebook delivered April 9th rather than July 9th
  • you’ll see your name in print – all backers are listed in the acknowledgments
  • hardcovers delivered as soon as they come off the presses
  • ebooks are DRM free and come in .mobi, .epub, and .pdf
  • signed hardcovers
  • 4 custom-designed bookmarks (one signed)
  • Screensavers for phones, tablets, and computers that features artwork by Marc Simonetti.
  • Soundtracks created by Will Musser (4 songs for Age of Myth, and one song each for Age of Swords, Age of War, and Age of Legend)
  • Save $3 off the hardcover list price for Age of Legend only
  • Save $22 off the hardcovers list price when purchasing all 4 books
  • Short Story featuring Suri and Minna
  • Short Story: Burning Alexandria
  • Short Story: The Game
  • Access to two video calls (one for readers the other for writers)

And if we can reach that $100,000 level all backers will get a free copy of one of my self-published standalone novels. You can choose from The Death of Dulgath, The Disapperance of Winter’s Daughter, or Hollow World. Those run from $8 – $10, so that’s an exceptional freebie, especially for those that back at the $5 or $10 level 😉

We have just 30 hours left for the Kickstarter. So, if you’ve already backed the project, thanks so much for the support. If you haven’t backed it yet, check it out and see if it is something you’d like to join. Oh, and if you know other fans of my writing, please tell them about the Kickstarter.  After all, if we reach that final goal, all the backers will benefit.

And as always, I and Robin thank you for your support.
