Novel Synopsis

Kevin Edwards and Juanita Grayson, weeks away from graduating high school, are transported to another world, which resembles theirs but also has shocking differences. 

Far from home, scared and confused, they are thrust into the middle of a war over dominion and souls on a world overrun by demons and ruled by an entity known only as The Demon Master.

After being told of a prophecy that says they are chosen to be the saviors of that world, Kevin and Juanita must let go of their desires to go home and live normal lives and use their new-found superpowers to become “Angelo™ and Angeline™: Soldiers of Light Against Darkness™”. 

How You Can Help

Interested? Of course you are!

I'm asking for you to pledge to this project so that I can self-publish my debut novel, the upcoming bestseller, "S.O.L.A.D.™: Soldiers of Light Against Darkness™".

This is my THIRD time using Kickstarter to get help to publish this novel. The first two projects didn't reach their goals. But, I believe that this project will.

I keep doing this because I BELIEVE in this novel and I KNOW that after you read it, you will BELIEVE too.

My 30th birthday is June 6 and I believe that I was born to write and share this novel, and the other novels I'm working on, with the world. It's going to be great to turn 30 and see this project's goal SURPASSED!

All of us have dreams, things we'd love to do if we had the time, focus, determination, perseverance and support to make them come true. 

Well, I've used my time wisely, stayed focused and determined on accomplishing my goals, and continue to persevere, believing with all my heart and everything I am that this dream can and will become reality.

All I need now is YOUR SUPPORT (pledges). I can't do this alone.

It is my dream to publish this novel so YOU can read this book, which deals with the themes that we deal with every day: love vs. hate, peace vs. war, confidence vs. fear and overcoming vs. failure.

This book will only be published if YOU PLEDGE to this project and it REACHES or SURPASSES its goal! Plus, you'll receive REWARDS for your pledge!

Do it today and tell your family, friends, co-workers and others to PLEDGE TODAY!

And REMEMBER, there are lots of AWESOME REWARDS!

First, for any pledge you make, your name will be included in a special THANK YOU page at the beginning of the novel and e-book of S.O.L.A.D.™

...BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!!!

If the goal is SURPASSED, those who pledged will receive additional rewards. The higher the tier you pledge in, the better the additional rewards!

I'll release more details AFTER the goal is surpassed!

Also, for every $2,000 of the goal reached, a special "Origins of S.O.L.A.D.™" short animated movie will be released, showcasing major characters from the novel. But, these movies will only be available to those who pledge. 

Thanks so much for your support!

Frequently asked questions:

Why aren’t you using print-on-demand?

To make the quality, hardcover novel that I want to produce for readers, print-on-demand would require readers to pay too much. So, I found a great book printing company, which has an A+ with the Better Business Bureau, who can make the great quality book for a great price. I want only the best for readers: a great book with a great story for a great price!

Why aren’t you going with a traditional publisher?

After researching traditional publishers and deciding that I wanted to be in control of the novel process and every other avenue my novel will take, I decided to self-publish.

Why are you printing so many copies?

I want as many people as possible to enjoy S.O.L.A.D.™:Soldiers of Light Against Darkness™.

I am printing 1,000 copies for several reasons.

First, the more books I print, the less printing will cost and the less the book will cost you.

I also want to send some books out for review so the word will get out about this awesome novel.

Finally, I don’t want to run out of books because I know that once the word gets out and once you’ve read this book, you’ll want to order additional copies as gifts for your family and friends.

When will S.O.L.A.D.™ be published?

When the goal is reached, the book will be released in October 2012.
