About

So I'm finally going to do it. I'm finally going to sit myself down, lock myself away in a tiny space and type until my fingers bleed. On second thought perhaps the latter isn't the best idea in the world as I don't want to ruin my Chromebook. 

I'm going to write a book, but this is where I need help from anyone and everyone that has read my blog posts, short stories, poetry, musings etc. I am starting a Kickstarter for this book. It will be a compilation of short stories that are rather macabre in nature. 

Think Edgar Allen Poe, Stephen King, Roger Zelazny and Anne Rice all got together and had a crazy dark literary love child. That pretty much covers the gist of this book. 

 have a great track record of starting a book, telling a wonderful story but I end up getting too distracted with life to finish it. This is why I need your help. I don't want something for nothing either so you'll be able to see the list rewards that I am offering for donations towards this tome of greatness. 

Anything from copies of my handwritten original work (sometimes I like to write my stories out with one of my trusty fountain pens) to copies of the book, and chilling with me ( if that's your thing) for a kickoff party once the book is finished and has been published. Pretty much anyone that wants to show up for the party will be invited to attend, you'll just be responsible for your own transportation. 

I've had a lot of people tell me over the years that I am a fantastic writer and now I need to prove it. Please, please, please consider giving me a hand up so I can write this book and possibly more like it if it's popular enough.

If you have never read anything by me, you can check out my blog www.onestepfromchaos.com I don't have any fiction published there, but you will be able to get an idea of how I write and who I am. 

The funds raised for the publication of this novel will go towards purchasing and mailing the rewards and self-publication of the book if necessary. 

Risks and challenges

As I am still writing the novel, I don't have a set finish date for the book, though I am shooting for Jan-Mar of 2016 at the latest.

I plan to keep all my donors up to date as I progress through writing the book through a blog that will be started when the Kickstarter campaign ends.

If I am unable to find a publishing company that will publish the novel, I will be using a self-publishing company to provide copies of the book to the donors that are due to receive a copy.
