Nelson Telson - The Story of a True Blue Blood is a middle reader novel that grows up before your very eyes. The book is just over 200 pages, very cinematic in style, and would make a wonderful animated movie.  The illustrations are finished, and I am now in the final stages of editing and formatting.  Powder Horn Press will be publishing the books distributed by me, and Amazon's CreateSpace will be printing for online distribution. Once the actual book is printed and proofed, I will create a Kindle book. The $800 I am raising should cover the cost of 200 books.  If I exceed my goal, I will use the funds to increase the number of books in my initial printing order.

Risks and challenges

Working locally with Powder Horn Press has diminished risks greatly. I'm trusting CreateSpace to do quality work with the online publishing. If the quality doesn't meet my expectations, there could be a delay of a few weeks before the book is available on Amazon. I will have the book completed, formatted, and cover design all ready to submit on the day my campaign ends. I look forward to mailing off the rewards to my backers as soon as I have the product in hand.
