My Why

I struggled to read as a child. When it did click, I found a world of magic inside the pages of every book I could find. Now, I'd love to contribute to that world and feed the imaginations of emerging readers and families alike. The Adventure is a collection of three Choose Your Own Adventure style stories. (It's in the 5-6th grade reading level). Great for young readers or parents seeking to instill a love of reading in their children by reading to them. Bring The Adventure home to your living room =) 

The Stories

Moonrise Mountain:

Legend tells of the wild horses that live atop Moonrise Mountain. Now you're out to discover if legend is true, but first, you have to reach the top of the mountain, and each choice you make will bring unforeseen dangers.

Temple of Night and Wind

Many have entered the Howling Maw in search of its treasures. None have returned. But now your village is starving and the Maw's treasures are your last resort. So down into the Maw you venture.

The Tournament

To free your uncle from life in the King's mines, you enter the Tournament. However, this is no typical contest, and its lack of rules makes success all the more difficult, and defeat all the more deadly. 

Pick wisely, dear reader, for success or failure depends on your choices

Why Kickstarter

The world of publishing has changed so much in recent years. I absolutely love that readers and authors can have closer interaction than ever before. Plus, I love the entire process of creating a book. It's challenging but incredibly rewarding to be a part of the whole process.

Thank you for your interest in The Adventure. As partners, we can make this book a reality and nurture the imaginations of readers. 

The Rewards:

Adventure Dreamer: ($10 or more) This level comes with the digital version of The Adventure + your name in the acknowledgments. For those who love their electronic reading devices, this is a great option. (Kindle only at the moment)

Adventure Seeker: ($25 or more) This level gets you a signed softcover copy of The Adventure, 2 custom stickers with the art of the illustrators, and your name in the acknowledgments.

Adventure Maker: ($50 or more) This level gets you a signed, hardcover copy of The Adventure (Only available through the Kickstarter), 2 custom stickers with art from the illustrators, and your name in the acknowledgments.

Adventure Enthusiast: ($75 or more) This level gets you a signed, hardcover copy of The Adventure (Only available through the Kickstarter), the 2 custom art stickers, your name in the acknowledgments + a custom journal including art and quotes from the book. (Record your own adventures and share them on social media with the hashtags #FeedImagination and #DreamsAndAdventures!) 

Risks and challenges

The softcover proof has been ordered. It should arrive any day. There is some concern that the spine art will be blurry but we've got time to fix this and order another proof. Overall, I'm super excited to share with everyone!

The Hardcover format cannot be started until the book goes live on Amazon. I'm assured the same internal formatting and cover can be used as the softcover format, but if there are any hangups, I'll share them as soon as I know about them. CreateSpace does have to approve the copy before it can be printed.
