The Dragons of Kendualdern: Dominion
I am currently working on finishing my upcoming novel, The Dragons of Kendualdern: Dominion. This fantasy takes place after Ascension.
Dominion is an action-packed fantasy adventure that follows Karlax, a young dragon prince hell-bent on vengeance and domination after narrowly escaping a murderous assault on his home that left all of his loved ones dead. In the wake of the destruction, Karlax has sworn never to rest until he has repaid those who took everything from him, and established a new kind of ruling order on Kendualdern, the likes of which has never been seen before.
This fund raising project isn't to produce the story itself. The e-book and paperback are certainly going to happen either way. (The e-book is set for a January 20th release. Click here for more details.) The cover art is finished, and the editing and other tasks left to be completed are already underway and fully funded.
What I want help with, is bringing a limited edition hard cover version to life. If this project funds, I will be able to produce a good print run in hardcover. And, in return for backing this project, I have some great rewards for you as well.
About me -- the author. I have been writing fantasy full time for the last 2.5 years (and part time before that for another few years). I have won a couple awards with my writing in the past, and most of my 21 fantasy novels have hit the top 100 in their respective categories in the U.S., U.K., and Australia. Below is a recent screenshot from a couple weeks ago showing my first novel's rankings in Action & Adventure Fantasy. It may be worth noting that The Dragon's Champion is over four years old.
If you haven't seen it yet, here is a teaser clip for The Dragon's Champion:
As you can tell by looking at the book descriptions on either page, I love to write fun and exciting adventures. If you like what you see so far, then join with me and let's create a fun experience together!

Risks and challenges
The risks are fairly minimal. While Dominion isn't fully finished yet, it is well on its way. Given my current track record for the last several years, I am 99% confident that it will finish on schedule and everyone will receive their rewards in January. All of the additional rewards are currently available so there is minimal risk there. So, unless ninjas sneak up and chop off my fingers, everything should be fine! (And even if ninjas come, I will find a way to knock out any last minute edits, even if I have to peck the keyboard with my nose!)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
