Welcome to The Trivium Proportion Universe!

Update: 7/15/2012

And with three days to go, the project is fully funded.  I am now setting up a STRETCH GOAL.  If the kickstarter can get to $3000 in pledges, I will also have an audio version produced, and this will also be supplied to the pledgers.

Update: Wednesday 7/11/2012 (Claimed by David Bleaking)

Custom art commision

To the next pledger of at least the $100 dollar level, C.E. Zacherl will do a custom, individualized art commision.  For those that have already pledged, increase your pledge by $100 to claim this benefit!  See more of his art at http://veyer.deviantart.com

Update: Thursday 7/5/2012 (Claimed by Elizabeth Hauris)

Make that character

The person to pledge the most money today, will get the opportunity to create a minor character that will be injected into one of the short stories!  If someone that has already pledged wishes to get this opportunity, simply up your pledge today and your new total will be considered towards the Make that character goal.

Now that the story is finished and the art nears completion, it is time to reach for the stars.

I am here to seek funding and exposure for the print and ebook versions of The Trivium Proportion.

The project is a set of 12 serialized short stories with an accompanying art piece for each.

The project is set in a near future cyberpunk-stylized setting where three characters that come from vastly different backgrounds struggle to make a difference in a world that is almost entirely against them.

A possible audio version is a work in progress.  Additional funding could make it a reality.

The same goes for a possible sequel.  If the funding hits a higher level than expected, this likelihood may also become a reality.

We need your help!

Apparel Details:

The apparel (t-shirt and poster) will be printed and shipped by zazzle.com, a print on demand site.

The current design for the t-shirt is on a black t-shirt with the Apple Packin' illustration from Part Twelve.

Back Cover Description of The Trivium Proportion:

In a near future cyberpunk world inspired by William Gibson, Bruce Sterling, and Charles Stross…

Three unlikely people are brought together by circumstance.  One is an idealist.  One wants revenge.  One seeks a new place in the world.

The monolithic forces of the Oathed Technocrats and their government puppets move to change the face of the world.  The world’s population has the wool pulled over its eyes.  It is up to the new resistance cell of Kayla, Jarred, and Apple to prevent world changing disaster.

Will all of their destinies and hopes be fulfilled, or will all that stands against them tear them apart?

The e-book:

The e-book will be released via Kindle Direct Publishing on Amazon in kindle format.

The softcover and hardcover:

These will be printed via Lightning Source, as of this current moment.  The size format will be sort of a graphic novel size to best display the art, 6x9".

Your money:

In addition to the costs to print the t-shirts, posters, and books, your money will go toward the cost of ISBN's, production costs, and of course, to pay the illustrator and author for their efforts.

Current state of affairs: (as of kickstarter launch)

The cover is the only piece of art remaining to be done.

The re-edits are currently in progress.

Final layout and print are waiting for the re-edits and cover art.
