About this project

My YouTube Channel, Website, & Twitter. <---Follow me on Twitter for fun grab bag giveaways when we reach certain goal levels!

EXAULTA is the first in a series of four Young Adult fantasy novels. Eric Ramer is the leader the Ravens, a clan of notorious thieves. He has protected his 17-year-old daughter, Elaina, from the world as well as his own business for her entire life. Our story begins with the destruction of the Ramer Estate and Elaina is thrown out into this unknown world, separated from anyone she has ever known. In order to get back to her father she must outrun soldiers, lie, befriend magical creatures, and fight off bandits. But when the Gods get involved, she learns that her fate is no longer her own.  

To read the first chapter free just click here: Chapter One

First, if the campaign is a success, I'd like to give this book a chance at a book deal by submitting it to agents. While we wait for word on that, I will send out signed, printed manuscripts of EXAULTA for those who select the appropriate reward packages and set to work on publishing my novellas. If EXAULTA is not offered a book deal, I will immediately self publish. Either way the book will be published and those with the $1 reward or higher will be notified accordingly. 

Rollover points:

If the campaign breaks $7000

I will make THE VENGEANCE OF VERONA, A Guardian Novella available to all patrons at a $10 reward level as a free ebook download.

If the campaign breaks $9000,

I will make SLIPPED, my first sci-fi novella, available to all patrons with a $10 reward as a free ebook download.

If the campaign breaks $12,000, I will have special *signed* limited edition prints made for EXAULTA that I will send out to all patrons at the $10 reward level.

High-end rollover points:

If the campaign breaks $15,000, I will write a second *signed* Guardian novella for all patrons subscribing at $25 or more, delivery date at my discretion.

If the campaign reaches between $20-25,000, I will make a The Vengeance of Verona book trailer to post online for all to see.

If the campaign reaches between $25-30,000, I will write a third *signed* novella for all patrons subscribing at $25 or more, delivery date at my discretion. It may be a Guardian novella, it may not be. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
