FADE INTO ME an Urban Fantasy Novel

$1,334

43

This is my third complete novel, but my first YA/NA crossover. It's more of a romance than my normal style, but it still has a taste of science fiction and a heavy dose of magical realism. One agent suggested it might be labeled a paranormal romance with a younger protagonist. 

Blurb:

Aliens live among us. Their purpose: to protect and nurture their greatest mistake—mankind.



Caedan Frey’s family has fulfilled this duty for thousands of years, but it doesn’t free him from his obligation as prince of the Reparation. Although he doesn't believe humans will evolve to see the magic, much less control it, he has two months to marry one or face the wrath of the High Council. Bitter about a responsibility he thinks prevents him from marrying for love, he figures any human girl will do. He's ready to propose to one when his soul mate stumbles into—and right out—of his arms.

Human, Ryanne Killian might be his one shot at happiness while still fulfilling his duty. Unfortunately, she guards a dark secret within her co-dependent personality, and she thinks the only way to protect Caedan is to push him away.

Caedan must convince her she’s worthy of his love before the men from her nightmares return for a second round. If she can see her own worth, she just might save herself and his people.<b>

Risks and challenges

The risk is relatively low. If we don't reach the funding goal, then your credit card is not charged. If we reach the funding goal, it's the waiting game. It will take the editor and formatter time to do their job. Hopefully only a month or two tops. While they are working, the cover will be completed.

Then we start distributing the rewards. Since I have published before and am familiar with the process, things should go smoothly.
