About

Hi! I’m E.M. Havens, an aspiring author. I published my first novel, a Steampunk Romance called Fate War: Alliance (http://www.amazon.com/Fate-War-Alliance-ebook/dp/B00BKQ5UVC), in February 2013. It’s doing well in its category, but I’m ready to publish another. This novella length story is about a girl named Jayden who commits suicide. She wakes up in a strange world with demons, knights, samurai, druids, and monsters. Jayden begins a journey with a band of misfits, both literally and figuratively. Writing this book was a bit of a catharsis for me. I’ve struggled with depression my entire life and battled thoughts of suicide in the past. While this novella is completely fiction, it allowed me to explore some of those big questions and emotions. As with all good science fiction/fantasy, it explores the larger themes of humanity, good, and evil. I hope, on some level, it can bring a spark of hope and truth to others. While the story is finished, it needs some polishing. The cover art needs to be completed, the interior has to be designed, a book trailer created and an editor hired. Luckily I know the best of the best, but I need your help to get the work done.

Risks and challenges

Because I've just tackled my first publishing project, I'm pretty familiar with the speed bumps I might face. I'll be relying on at least three other people to complete their work in order to assimilate the final product. I've allowed some extra time between now and my potential publishing date to make sure things run smoothly. I've also chosen very reliable and trustworthy people and have confidence in their abilities.

Another issue might be with with my own editing of the manuscript. I only have so many hours in the day. But I'm committed to seeing this project through and I have a family support system that gets me. They are willing to give me the time I need.
