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 email@example.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.
Read it, loved it, cant wait for more!
Kristen if you could contact me by email, I got a few questions.
13 minutes left to find out
think we will get over eleven?
I do not know, Im sure we will get it soon.
what is the link for the stream?
I bet this opens a lot of options for the launch of your books, hopefully be able to see it in store everywhere.
The stream will go up at 9:30! And the draw happens at 9:50PM!!!!!!
We did it, over 400%
Oh! I see. It's just a suggestion, no worry. Anyway, hope you can get the story advertised. :)
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.
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?
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!!
@Josiah I know!! Wow!!! $10K is right around the corner now!
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 ;).
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.
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!
I'm curious - which art site did ya see the ad from?
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.
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.
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.
is this the amount that you needed all together to get everything you wanted?
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
Can we break 7K in 42 more hours? That's about $13/hour, not too improbable..
Thank you for your kind words and generous donations! I've never been so excited to see a project take off like this!!
Congratulations, I hope your stories become a big success. The cover art is very exemplary.
I've got your back! Hope this stories will becomes a must-have for dracoholic readers!
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? >.>
Love stories about dragons, can't wait!! :D
Thank you very much!!
Saw an ad for this online and I couldn't help but be interested, you have my pledge. Can't wait to read the book
Dragon fiction! I look forward to reading this one. I love novels with non-human viewpoints. :)
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.
For ebook formats I would recommend PDF and EPUBS they would work well on most devices. At least on iOS and Android.
I wrote about your project on my blog. Check it out!
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. ;)
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.
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.)
There is no additional shipping fee. I work for a major shipping company with a 75% discount, so it'll be free shipping. :)
You probably should mention how much to add for international shipping of the hard back book, if there is an additional shipping fee
This sounds amazing; I'm looking forward to reading your work!
