                                                    THE BOOK! 

Featuring over 100 ivory pages, this HARDCOVER collection (Measuring 7.5 by 9.5in) includes chapters 1 through 4, including a written chapter featuring spot illustrations from a guest artist! ( Hint hint, his initials are GG )

                                                   THE STORY! 

                                      Here's the 10 cent description! 

Morgan Le Fey, in a sinister attempt to dethrone King Arthur, has destroyed Excalibur, and sent its shards throughout the ages. Now, through the help of the mysterious White Knight, the Sires of Time, must embark on a perilous quest through the ages to reclaim the missing shards. The shards hold near ultimate power to all those who hold them, and finding, let alone reclaiming them is no easy task. Can the knights find all the missing pieces and return to their proper time before Morgan Le Fey destroys all of Britain?

                              BUT WHO ARE THE SIRES OF TIME?

They are three of King Arthur's finest knights. Sir Red and his brother Sir Blue, a quarrelsome pair who constantly match ones wits against the others steel, and the reformed and repentant Black knight. Once a thrall and personal assassin of Morgan Le Fey, Sir Black has retreated to Arthur's service in an attempt to save whats left of his soul.

Risks and challenges

So the main risk in this Kickstarter is quality. I want to produce the absolute best book that money can buy. Since I am printing the book with two tones, I might have to get a few preview samples to make sure the colors are just right, that may include longer production times due to shipping of the sample book. Other than that no risks at all!
