About this project
I have written a science fiction novella called Codename Omega: Omega Rising. It's too short to be considered by most traditional publishers but I still want it to see the light of day, so I've decided to self-publish. I will be using a print-on-demand service for physical books but expect most of the sales to be of the e-book version.
The kickstarter funding will go towards the cost of professional editing, proof-reading, typesetting and cover design.
Omega Rising is the story of eighteen-year-old Jenny Harding, starting out on her own in York. She applies for a job at the new tech firm Grey's Tower and is astonished to be given a position in security, trying to track the source of some recent thefts. Before long, Jenny discovers that there's more going on. Caught up in a battle involving alien technology, she faces the most difficult question of all: is she on the right side?
The novella has gone through one round of editorial review so far and received some amazing comments from the editor including the following:
"The characters have been crafted superbly and with no wasted motion. Other than flattery, I have no critique of characterization."
"Organic and rising from a balanced ebb and flow of tension, the author has created a plot flow that is both comfortable and perfectly times."
"The dialogue is sharp, character specific, and works to propel character and plot development with ease. A true conversational cadence has been achieved, and the dialogue tags are seamless."
Risks and challenges
The only major obstacle is that the editing process may take longer than anticipated. I want to make sure that the book is the best quality it can be when it reaches the readers, so I'm going to give it whatever time is required.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
