About this project

15-year-old Danny has problems. He hears voices. Sees apparitions. His girlfriend is really a dragon. Oh, and he has to save the world.

Danny Dierks and the Heir of Pendragon is a modern-day twist on the tale of King Arthur. It's a young adult novel and the first book in a proposed trilogy. For a sample, please visit my blog: http://samulraney.blogspot.com/p/excerpt-danny-dierks.html

Book #1 is written. It's ~62,000 words. It needs to be professionally edited. Editing a book of that size will cost between $750 and $1000. It will need professional cover art, which will cost between $350 and $500. And, finally, even the best books need a good marketing plan. Additional funds above $1500 will be used to market the book. Funds beyond $2000 will more than likely go toward funding book #2.

Risks and challenges

The book is written. At this point, editing the book to the point where I believe it has reached it's greatest potential is the biggest challenge. This can take time and I want to be sure that I get the best editors possible. With these funds, I'm positive I can do it.
