      I got my PDF version AND IT'S AWESOME!!!!!!!! I'm a $50.00 backer so I hope I'll get the other two books in hard back as well because your work too me has more in depth descriptions of the characters and how they see the world and you don't have so many mysteries. So for my opinion you are on par if not better than other authors like Chtistopher Paolini and his inheritance cycle. Because his books can be a little confusing to me. But your book is so cool that I can easily grasp and enjoy it. By the way would you like a female tabby cat named natalie to keep sparrow company while your gone from your house she is a very sweet cat she does however need to be spayed but if you are interested or not contact me by email at jan21@peoplepc.com

      I just read through the story, and it was great. There where a few grammatical mistakes but it did not detract from the storyline or the character development. Can't wait for the second book to come out.

      what is the link for the stream?

    9. Missing_small

      Creator steven naegele on March 4, 2012

      I bet this opens a lot of options for the launch of your books, hopefully be able to see it in store everywhere.

      Good Job.

      Oh! I see. It's just a suggestion, no worry. Anyway, hope you can get the story advertised. :)

      Creator Kristen Koller on March 4, 2012

      I'm not quite sure I follow what you're asking. You mean add onto the reward so that they get to review and critique the stories? Or offer them the entire $2,500. If its the latter, I'm afraid I can't. :) Having four-five honorary editors on the front cover would be a bit much.

    14. Missing_small

      Creator Dysta on March 4, 2012

      I do have one suggestion for last half a day, Kristen. If it breaks $10000 Pledge, can you makes the backer who pledged over $500 can join the new reward which is allow to review and critique of your stories, only for 2 or 3 slots of this?

    15. 1298079873.kalansphantom_sithen.small

      Creator Kristen Koller on March 4, 2012

      I think i'm a bit at a loss for that, but I'll likely work out something extra that they'd like as a present. :) It'll take some creative thinking thats for sure!

      I do wonder one thing, what happens if the $2,500 pledge is one of the ones picked for a pledge boost? >.>

      It's still amazing for me! I can't wait to do the drawing and to see who wins what!!

      Creator Zolgar on March 4, 2012

      That was epic. Someone actually pledged $2500. :) It's really awesome to see this take off so well in the final days/hours.

      it was sofurry.com, I stumbled on the website a few days ago, not as good as deviantart or furaffinity,, I have an account on furaffinity but yet to post anything, most of the stuff is random sketches and practice work. if I want to post anything on there it will be actual finished work if you know what I am saying.

      Ahhh, I know which one you're talking about. Duely noted ;).

    22. Missing_small

      Creator steven naegele on March 4, 2012

      Email me wen you need help funding the other books, I will be waiting in anticipation for them.

      Sekkite - I don't remember, it was a furry art site, I visit a few here and there for inspirations when I run into an art block, looking for ideas, or visiting friends new creations. It was on a banner on the page, it was going really fast to see everything it had to say.

    23. 1298079873.kalansphantom_sithen.small

      Creator Kristen Koller on March 3, 2012

      I hope it is a huge success. This has been such a wild ride and I started out hesitant that I'd reach the high goal I set. Now I find myself able to add so many additional things to the first book that I can see it going far in the publishing world. And the idea of seeing it made a movie would be the highest compliment I could imagine!

    24. Missing_small

      Creator Sekkite on March 3, 2012

      I'm curious - which art site did ya see the ad from?

    25. Missing_small

      Creator steven naegele on March 3, 2012

      An advertisement through a art site, the book sounds good, and I really want to see a good dragon story get off the ground, and into the silver screen movies hopefully like the harry-potter series. There are rarely any books out there that portray the dragon other than evil monster, and I would like that to change.

    26. 1298079873.kalansphantom_sithen.small

      Creator Kristen Koller on March 3, 2012

      I mean money to put towards the second and third book when I'd been planning on mostly funding it myself rather than with the pledges here. :) Didn't mean to make it sound like I wasn't going to publish them. That's what I get for writing replies while on the phone.

    27. 1298079873.kalansphantom_sithen.small

      Creator Kristen Koller on March 3, 2012

      This is fantastic. And yes, as long as everything goes through perfectly this will ensure the first book goes out with a magnificent bang! Anything after this is magnificent over flow that will be set aside for the second and third books that I hadn't planned on having! Thank you so much for your generous and wonderful pledge! If I may ask, how did you find me? :) I've been racking my mind trying to figure out how you found this project.

    28. Missing_small

      Creator steven naegele on March 3, 2012

      is this the amount that you needed all together to get everything you wanted?

    29. 1298079873.kalansphantom_sithen.small

      Creator Kristen Koller on March 3, 2012

      It is indeed!!!!!! I'm a bit floored at the moment, but oh so excited.

      well, 7k came and went, now staring down at 10k :o I think that 3-month pr package might be in your future, Kristen :o

      Creator Zolgar on March 3, 2012

      Can we break 7K in 42 more hours? That's about $13/hour, not too improbable..

      Creator Kristen Koller on March 1, 2012

      Creator Zolgar on February 28, 2012

      So.. if ever backer upped their pledge by $5, we'd be over the $5000 stretch goal.. Think of it folks, a 1 in 77 chance to get the $2500 reward and a 2 in 76 chance to get your reward bumped to the next tier.. isn't that worth an extra $5? >.>

      Dragon fiction! I look forward to reading this one. I love novels with non-human viewpoints. :)

      Creator Kristen Koller on February 20, 2012

      I'm going to turn it into several different formats for e-books. :) When I send them out to backers I'll let them choose which one works best on their electronics.

    41. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Pete on February 18, 2012

      For ebook formats I would recommend PDF and EPUBS they would work well on most devices. At least on iOS and Android.

      Creator Zolgar on February 12, 2012

      Very glad to hear! You're one of those strange people who actually puts self-publishers in a positive light.. Shame there's so few of you by comparison to the number of people who self publish. ;)

    43. 1298079873.kalansphantom_sithen.small

      Creator Kristen Koller on February 12, 2012

      Yup! It will get professionally edited! I know that I'm not a real editor, nor do I really know any so I'm going to have someone who knows what they're doing to edit it. And yes, it is quite pricey to get done properly.

    44. 172775_158821454173815_504280_o.small

      Creator Zolgar on February 12, 2012

      I'm curious, are you getting it professionally edited? I know it's not cheap, but when it comes to 'self publishing', it can really be a major boost to the quality of your book. (My pledge is already in, regardless, it's just something I'm wondering.)

    45. 1298079873.kalansphantom_sithen.small

      Creator Kristen Koller on February 10, 2012

      There is no additional shipping fee. I work for a major shipping company with a 75% discount, so it'll be free shipping. :)

    46. Missing_small

      Creator Mikael Olofsson (deleted) on February 10, 2012

      You probably should mention how much to add for international shipping of the hard back book, if there is an additional shipping fee
