Let's see if we can hit the second stretchgoal here on the finish line :)
WHAT IS BRIMSTONE?
"The sun is muted in this world, an eternal eclipse, like a constant struggle between light and darkness. It’s beautiful and dangerous. I’ve never imagined such a place could exist. I fear the wicked creatures around me, but I wonder if they ought to fear me in return? When I look at my hands I feel the change in my skin, the energy pulsing beneath like a life of its own. If I embrace it, will I ever see blue skies again?"
Brimstone: The Demon Within is a contemporary coming-of-age tale set in a treacherous realm that exists beneath our world. It’s the story of a gifted girl thrust into a wilderness of wonder and terror, where she’s forced to face her deepest fears and grapple with the dangers that lurk within and around her. We've teamed up with Hollywood screenwriter Will Simmons to create an epic dark fantasy universe.
CINEMATIC NOVELS - A MOOD VISION
At MOOD we simply love entertainment: Movies, books, graphic novels, comics. Everyday we tell the cool stories of our clients, but we’ve also passionately dreamt about sharing our own.
As we made our first book, Fall of Gods, we found we were really on to something. A cool crossover between written novel and gorgeous concept art from movies. We got so excited about this, that we established MOOD Publishing to bring more Cinematic Novels to you.
We want to give you the feeling of a motion picture but in book form. When visualising our novels, we imagine being there, on set, like a cameraman. We want you to feel the characters and pull you into an extraordinary world and give you a unique cinematic experience.
WHAT IS THE FINAL PRODUCT
Brimstone, The Demon Within, is the first of a planned trilogy following Mary and her journey through Brimstone. Each volume will have it’s own closed storyline.
The book will be 150 pages, with each spread containing a part of the story and full page colour illustration. We’ll make sure you get a high quality print to showcase all the cool artwork.
Your support is extremely valuable!
We've already completed all the creative work, your support will simply cover the necessary costs of printing.

Risks and challenges

The story is written and all the creative work is completed. We have our printing and shipping partners lined up, so basically we're ready to print.
We expect thing's to run smoothly however If there's some hiccups along the way, we will be in touch with all of you, making sure you know what's going on.
