A dream is something that I’ve been chasing for far too long. Now I find myself on the edge of something great. It’s a chance to publish not just one book, but a trilogy that touches on a world of dragons, humans and would-be gods. I want to do this right, with as much chance and hard work to make it a success as possible.
The Dragon's Storm Trilogy is a fantasy work that was born in my mind, and took on dragon’s wings as it follows the adventures of Lashane, a young mage set upon making a name for herself. Her life is shattered when she finds herself magically trapped within the body of a dragon and from there raised under the tutelage of one of the last remaining true dragons. Her world is changed into something anew as memories of her old life are buried and she's taught all the lessons that her 'sire' lays down for her. She learns of the past of dragonkind, the great war’s that were fought and the near extinction of her kind.
Through the novel we’re given a glimpse of who she once was and what she is becoming. Overshadowing her growth is the great dragon Sithen. The old warrior nurtures her as he would his own daughter in the hopes that his kind will become reality once again. It follows both his past and her future as she grows from a weak limbed hatchling to a strong proud dragoness. The reader is woven into a tale in which she becomes the focal point of a war that has been generations in the making and the upheaval of the Nyseen Empire. The Dragon's Storm Trilogy takes views of wars, humanity, spirituality, and hope through dizzying highs and plummeting lows.
The funds that I’m trying to raise will go to self publishing this trilogy. It will go towards a review staff, editing, formatting, publishing, advertising, offering to retail stores, and marketing. I want to step away from publishers that might edit and change my story, and attempt to publish it the way it was meant to be seen. I have always been fond of fantasy and fiction. It’s something that fires the imagination and allows the person reading to step into that world. It conveys emotions, lessons and entertainment. As the world starts to gear more towards the electronic and visual aid, I still firmly believe that the written word is only starting to find a new place in the world. I believe that with time, care and dedication that self publishing with allow stories to reach a wider market then possibly even going with a real publisher. I want the chance to see that a reality.
