This is an effort to publish a novel trilogy; a story of transcendent love without limits, aching passion & connection without end.
My name is Kahlen Aymes and I’m a writer. Publishing is a dream that started two years ago, on a lark. This is for those of you who read a story and fell in love, took a chance and encouraged me to take the leap of faith needed to jump into that journey. Your love and support has meant the world to me and you are the inspiration behind the characters that won’t leave me alone until I create their worlds with a flurry of words. So here goes nothing….
The Remembrance Trilogy: The Future of Our Past & Don’t Forget to Remember Me & A Love Like This.
Book One: The Future of Our Past:
Julia Abbot and Ryan Matthews are inseparable best friends, both secretly in love with the other. When he is accepted to Harvard Medical School and parting is eminent, they are forced to face their deeper feelings. They both struggle to build new lives without the other; trying to hold on to the one person they depend on the most, teetering between the friendship they both cherish and a passion like neither has ever known.
Set in Boston, Los Angeles and New York City, the lovers are torn apart by great distances and impossible situations, secrets and great loss…yet through it all, their unspoken connection will not be denied. It is a story of longing and love so transcending, that even if the mind can't remember…the heart and soul simply won't forget.
If you enjoy angst, heart-wrenching and hot romance, the Remembrance Trilogy is for you! Read the prologue here.
Details about your goodies! Please see the pledge rewards to the right. To everyone pledging, I am deeply grateful and your generous support will not be forgotten.
Backers outside the USA, please note: For international shipping addresses, please contact me before you hit the "Back This Project" button so I can calculate shipping costs -- if the cost to ship to you is substantially higher than to ship within the continental United States, please support the project at a level to cover the costs of shipping. You do not have to go to the next reward level, simply add the shipping amount to your pledge. I'll get back to you promptly to calculate a suggested pledge amount for the reward you'd like. Thank you for your understanding!
How the funds raised by this kickstarter.com project will be used:
Publishing the first manuscript in print and eBook formats & fulfilling the reward obligations. The rewards are designed to mirror the actual retail of the item you would like, and includes postage in the US/Canada. Any additional funds raised will go toward book trailers, cover art, copyright fees and publishing the subsequent books in the series.
My hope is that with the collective help of my reader base, friends, family and the amazingly brilliant crowd-sourcing through Kickstarter.com, I can proudly bring my debut novel to market and pave the way for my future work. I will fulfill the rewards as promptly as I can.
Check our progress on my blog. Thank you in advance to all of you who find it in your heart to pledge for pre-order of my book. My readers are the very reason that I write and you rock my world! I promise to wring you out with my words.
If the project doesn't fund, then your pledge won't process, so you won't have purchased the books. Yes, you can get them, but you'll have to use traditional venues such as Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble. (After the book publishes)
If you live inside the US or Canada, I've tried to include the postage. If you live outside the US, then a little will need to be added to cover the difference.
Sure, after they publish, but you'll need to send it to me, then I, back to you. The postage will be more because it travels more.
The first book has been funded, however, retail venues do not pay authors as books sell. I have to wait 3 or 4 months to receive payment so it will delay the release of the other two books. The funds from kickstarter,(besides funding pledge fulfillment) will be used to launch the second book right on the heels of book one.
It will process at the end date of the project and ONLY IF THE PROJECT REACHES GOAL. Kickstarter is an all or nothing proposition.
Nope...it's only available on the blog.
Yes. Just search Kahlen Aymes.
