About

Hello! My name is Gabriel Dantes! I'm a fantasy author inspired mostly by the writings of JRR Tolkien. I believe we need better fantasy writing. In a desire to see that, for the past four years, I have been developing a story that has now matured into the full length fantasy novel "The Love of Nessa and Kêlet."

The story follows how the weaving threads of a destiny draws two hearts to a curious meeting. The beautiful and proud Kêlet fiercely recounts the story of her beloved - how by the help of both fate and diligence Nessa became a man of great renown. See the video below for episode one of "Dantes Theater" where Dantes will read the beginning of chapter one.

This Kickstater is dedicated to funding my project of publishing my high FANTASY ROMANCE NOVEL "The Love of Nessa and Kêlet" and the MUSIC ALBUM that accompanies it called "Songs of Lore." The album is a recording of songs that can be found in the book "The Love of Nessa and Kêlet" and also in the next book "Telitha's Tales: Journey beyond the Crimson Mountains." In addition to the NOVEL and the ALBUM, there is The Map of Yophea, a map of my entire world of fantasy. 

To the RIGHT, there are several reward bundles. The degree to which you contribute to my cause is the degree to which you gain certain rewards (printed, signed and digital). Feel free to choose whichever reward most resonates with you. But do so quickly, because the early bird bundle will disappear quickly on July 31st and some rewards have a limited number!

Dantes Theater: The Love of Nessa and Kelet (Episode One)

Songs of Lore (coming soon)

Now that I have obtained the proper recording materials I can start working on this. Don't worry! You will see my first song up here in no time!

Risks and challenges

The risk of this project is being able to gather enough support to fundraise the full $7800. If I don't fundraise the full amount then, I won't see any of the money and you won't receive your book. But I only need to sell 180 copies of my book to break even. I am confident that among my 900 friends on social media and on my email list (many of whom are influential and ready to support me) I will reach enough of them. I also am highlighting the uniqueness of my project - the music album and the story - and I will be engaging and boosting my audience reach everyday.

Note: Any higher reward teirs OVER $200 may not be given to any minor (or anyone who has yet to complete High School) unless the minor both contacts Dantes and obtains parental permission. If a minor claims a high reward, then the money will be returned.
