Centaurs, Dryads, Olympians, oh my...
What if the Greek gods really did exist? What if they're still around?
What if when you see something from the corner of your eye, there's something more than you realize?
Check out the first chapter here! Chapter One
I've spent the last few years writing Discovery, the first book in my Tales of True Mythology pentalogy. After some time looking into the publishing world I discovered that traditional publishing has become almost impossible to break into. Tens of thousands of authors submit their work into the major publishing houses every year, creating almost a sea of manuscripts to wade through.
So self-publishing it is! The problem with self-publishing, though, is the large amount of money needed up front to fund the printing. That's where you come in!
The money given here to back my project will be used to pay for the printing package from the self-publishing company I've chosen. It's reasonable, so I don't need a ton of money, and efficient. This company provides an on-demand printing setup, so a book is only made when someone purchases it, eliminating excess unpurchased books piled up in a warehouses or my bedroom. No waste!
My manuscript is done and has been tweaked several times after good feedback from at least a dozen readers ages 13 to 50. Once this project succeeds, it will start with no delay!
I really want to thank you for even taking the time to check this project out. I never imagined myself writing books, but life always has different plans for us. I hope you will join me in this adventure! Who knows where it will lead!
It is compatible and will be available on the Amazon Kindle, the Sony Reader, the Barnes & Noble eReader, Nook, Google eBookstore, Kobo Books, Scribd.com, iBookstore and BooksOnBoard.
Wow, that's a lot.
