About

Cassandra has a problem...and it's only the first of many.

Being raised as the youngest child in a family of great heroes would be a challenge for anyone. 

Her great-grandfather is the mighty King of Dragons, Draconis. Her father fought off hordes of monstrous creatures at the Battle of Heatherington Keep and sacrificed everything putting an end to a viscous cult of anti-dragon zealots. Even her mother rose to greatness as one of the rulers of Dragon Keep and a beacon for peace across Amesdia bringing Dragons, Humans, Elves and Dwarves together in an alliance that stood many trials over the last century.

Until a few days ago, Cassandra was content with her role as the child of greatness. She was studious, spent most of her waking hours with her mother and other heads of state and at her fathers insistence, learned how to duel. As her siblings had before her, Cassandra knew she would likely be matched with a partner for political reasons and had long since accepted her role in the world.

That was, of course, before her mother died and before her...transformation. Overnight, her soft pale skin sprouted gorgeous golden dragon scales. 

Presented with a future she no longer recognizes, as the first of her kind, she must overcome a whole new set of challenges if she hopes to survive the unknown threat that comes from across the Careless Sea.

Please share the heck out of this KickStarter! lol

Risks and challenges

The novel is nearing completion and I'll be handing it off to my editor in a few weeks. I have my lovely artist all lined up and she's excited to be cut loose with the direction I've given her for the concept I have in my head. I don't like to saddle creative people with too much detail and I'm always blown away by what they come up with as a result.

Once the novel is back in my hands, I'll put a final polish on the design and get it ready for publication for December 1, 2015. Now, that's the publication date for supporters. I'll get in physical copies and mail those out a couple of weeks or so before that date, supporters at the eBook level will get theirs on December 1.

The novel itself will end up in the Amazon store and the KDP store later that first week of December, but supporters will get it first.

That should address the most common questions, but if you have any others...please shoot them my way!
