The Stone Door - Young Adult Fantasy Novel
'The Stone Door' is the first novel of five in a series about a Norse demigod named Juniper.
'The Stone Door' is a young adult novel about a girl named Juniper Holt. Since a car accident at age twelve, Juniper has been suffering from amnesia, and she doesn't remember much about her childhood. In 'The Stone Door,' she finds herself knee deep in a world that she's always been a part of, but doesn't know anything about. After being kidnapped, Juniper has to fight her way through an otherworldly forest, alongside a group of strangers who claim to know her, all while trying to figure out who she is and why all of this nonsense feels so familiar. The group struggles to get home, fighting through every obstacle that the Norse God, Loki, throws at them, and once they do, Juniper finds herself at odds with her entire life.
In 'The Stone Door,' readers will start to learn about the world that Juniper has been thrust into. The world I've created for this series has deep roots in Norse Mythology, but there is also an ample amount of witchcraft and classic supernatural creatures in it. The characters themselves are a sort of demigod, but I won't give too much away about that, and instead I'll let you read it for yourselves. If you like mythology or fantastical creatures, you're sure to enjoy this world!
Hi! My name is Meghan, author of 'The Stone Door' and the rest of the Juniper Holt Series. I've been working on these books for the past seven years. At one point, the first two titles (The Stone Door and The Chains of Rowan) were published under alternate titles, and they were a bit different than what they are currently. I've come a long way since then, and my writing abilities are far superior to what they were. I've been re-writing and editing the first book for months, and I'm now ready to take the first step.
With this Kickstarter campaign, if it is fully funded, I will be able to submit 'The Stone Door' to a professional editor, to get it the clean sweep it deserves, as well as purchase ISBN numbers and barcodes for the various versions of the book. As soon as the editing process is completed, I will be able to format and publish the book, and that is when all of the Kickstarter rewards will be sent out.
I'm really excited to share this novel and all it's sequels with the world! This has been a long journey for me, and I'd love to take you all along with me. If this campaign is successful, it will kickstart the beginning of a five-part series, as well as the rest of my writing career.
The funding for the project is broken down into four parts: Editing, ISBN/Barcodes, Fees + Cushion in case of backer cancellation and Backer Rewards/Shipping
Editors are expensive, and the book requires a developmental edit as well as a line/copy edit. I'd also like a proofreader, which will cost extra also.
ISBNs & Barcodes: $250
Fees + Cancellations: $200
Backer Rewards & Shipping: $300
$3250 - 11 x 17 Poster for every physical backer, digital copy of the poster for digital backers.
$3500 - Set of five stickers for every backer. All digital backers will now receive physical Thank You cards.
$3750 - Mug for every physical backer.
$4000 - Tee Shirt for every backer.
$4500 - Tote Bag for every backer.
Risks and challenges
The Stone Door has already been written and is ready for the editing process. I'm certain that everything will go as planned, if the book is funded, and there should be no issues. It's always possible that the book gets released later than planned, which I'm hoping won't happen, but no matter what, everyone will get their rewards, and the book will be published!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
