The government wants to take the vampires and werewolves off the map for good. It's up to Alistair Christian to stop them.
Since I was very young, I've wanted to write a book, and share it with the world.
Now I have the chance to do that.
Through a service called CreateSpace, I've found a way to not only publish my book, but get it professionally edited - help with publicity - get myself a number with the Library of Congress... all things that would be very useful for an author just starting up. Reviews from respected places in the community, publicity packets, and help all the way along as I piece this book together myself. All through a company that I've worked with before, and trust - and will get my book out on places like Amazon.com.
Also, I can commission my friend Del Borovic to do the cover art, and help out an artist that I have immense amounts of respect and admiration for.
I have the book, and I have the drive to give these characters to the world. I just need your help to get them there.
If you haven't read any of my writing before - or would like to get a chance to start to meet some of the characters from Revolution before it's finished, click here and read a snippet of two of the supporting cast, prior to the beginning of the novel. (Snippets like this one are what you can expect from the character vignettes promised in the rewards section.)

It will be challenging, walking through the process of setting up the novel. Sometimes it takes longer than I'd like. But the book is written, and I can't see it needing a massive revamp at this stage in the game. But if it does, I will put every moment I have into it, so that you can receive my work in as close to the time frame I've promised as possible.
The illustrations for the character vignette book are still in conversations, but I have faith that they will come through - and if not, I will look into other avenues and other artists to ensure that they come to fruition.
I have come too far on this novel to let it fall now - and with all of you behind me, I will have even more to make me fight for its life.
