About

Have you ever thought about what would happen if an angel made a mistake? Maybe you’ve even considered that angels might walk among us? You may or may not be a religious person but the thought of higher entities waging a battle of good against evil appeals to many of us. I’ve enjoyed some exceptional tales about primordial beings both in the pages of books and on the big screen, so much so that I became impassioned and wanted to create something myself.

That is where Eventide and the Sepherene Chronicles began. The inkling of an idea took shape and I found myself on the quest of a fallen angel who sought redemption and a way back into the heavens. And the antagonists? Well there was absolutely no question, they had to be more of the same, fallen angels who have no intention of returning to the limitations of their previous existence, happy to walk the earthly planes and bask in the glory of a demi-god’s existence. And so the stage was set for a thought-provoking tale full of blistering action and heart-felt emotion.

Eventide is already available as an eBook and many are enjoying it, but I wanted more. I wanted to hear it read aloud and told with a voice that would captivate me and complement the depth of writing. After hours of research I came across Media Music Now, a very professional company based in the UK with some incredible voice-over talents. As with everything there is a price tag attached and that is why I’m asking you today if you’ll be willing to support my dream and make the Eventide audiobook a reality.

Your pledge will go towards the professional production and CD compiliation of the audiobook itself, as well as the artwork and graphic design for the project. So please put your hands in your pockets and dig deep for what is going to be the most entertaining angel story of all time, set in futuristic worlds and waging an age-old battle.

Thank you for viewing my project and I hope you like what you see. Below you can listen to an audio sample of the voice-over artist I'll be using for this production. Also I've included some of the reviews people have left after reading Eventide and I have added potential stretch goals that are worth bearing in mind. Thanks again and remember, nobody is infallible, not even angels.

              *Voice over sample from the artist I will be using if the project is successful.

"Usually I don't have much luck with angel books besides Thomas E. Sniegoski's The Fallen novels and Lauren Kate's Fallen novels. Eventide is now the best angel story I've ever read. It mixes fantasy and sci-fi together to create a new and fantastic setting.

"Lucius Gavalas has an angel inside of him, Sepherene, who is out to put an end to other fallen angels believing that she will be accepted back if she succeeds. Lucius is the poor soul who ends up having his body used as Sepherene fights the fallen and he has the scars to prove it. We don't learn a lot about him in this book but what we do is that he's a haunted man and he's fought addiction, using to dull the pain of his past.

"I really enjoyed Eventide. This is the first story I've read from Beazley and it won't be the last. The writing is smooth and the action scenes wonderfully detailed. This is a short read and ends on a bit of a cliffhanger but I wasn't upset by that, it worked with what was happening.

"So, if you're into sci-fi, fantasy or a good angel story this is the book for you." - Jennifer Nix, Book Bird Reviews

"Lucius is possessed by an angel, Sepherene, who is on a mission to find and destroy her fallen brethren. She is convinced she is on a righteous quest, but things are not always what they appear. She has chosen a somewhat flawed human to inhabit: Lucius has a very troubled past. They have a rather difficult and slightly dubious task ahead.

"This book is one of contrasts and seeming contradictions. It unites sci-fi with Christian ideals, gives us a vengeful angel, an anti-hero, a future world that surely should have striven to be better but seems to have become more corrupt and divided than before. And yet somehow right and wrong, good and bad, become blurred.

"Daniel Beazley is sharply observant and gives us plenty to think about in this novella, the first in a very promising series." - S.J.Dagg

“Initially I wasn't sure how much I would enjoy this book with its angels/religious angles and the good versus bad themes, but I found it a gritty SciFi and Fantasy read. Beazley has managed to create a unique lead character with real depth in Lucius, a soldier convinced to undertake a quest for a vengeful angel, Sepherene.” – Nathan Walker

“This book is part one of a series that I’m thoroughly looking forward to. Daniel's writing shows great attention to detail both in the characters and the universe in which they live. I quickly found myself immersed in his world; the fights and battles, the humour, danger, strength and cunning where you soon realise nothing is just black and white!” – N.Streetley

If the target is reached and goes beyond what I need then I would really like to explore some different stretch goals to reward all those that have pledged their hard earned money to support my project.

First stretch goal:

£3500 - More incredible artwork. For everybody that has pledged I have three amazing scenes in mind that I'd like to be commissioned by the same artist that created my cover image. You'll be sent these digital images by the deadline listed for the audiobook.

Second stretch goal:

£6000 - Dark Shroud, part two of The Sepherene Chronicles can be produced! Not only will those of you that have pledged £15 and upwards get the Eventide audiobook, but you will also get Dark Shroud as well. For this particular reward the deadline will more than likely extend into 2016 but that will not affect the delivery of any of your other rewards.

I would love to have to come up with a third stretch goal...

Risks and challenges

I am the sole author of this work and I hold all of the rights to it.

The artwork has been commissioned by me and has been completed by Raluca Popan, a professional illustrator who is passionate about fantasy, graphic novels and character design.

Media Music Now, who will be producing the audiobook, have been established for ten years in the UK and the company is an essential source for many digital / marketing agencies, video producers, corporate events companies and product developers. Among their clients are the BBC, Adidas, Sky, NBC and Readers Digest to name just a few.

There are no real risks posed by this project as the people I have sourced are tried and tested in their fields. I have set viable and realistic deadlines for the rewards but if there are any delays then you will be notified as soon as I find out. The only true challenge will be reaching the target so that the final outcome can be achieved, but with your help we can make this happen.
