Help us raise funds to film a promotional video for a new fantasy novel!

I have been working on Firedust for a long time- first to get it out of my head, and now to share it with the rest of the world. It is a story I have faith in, and one I want to share with everyone.

So I called in every favor I could, all with one goal: Filming a promotional video for the story to help it stand out- this means finding locations, actors, makeup, costumes, special effects, and music rights. After running the numbers, I found that I could accomplish this goal with $1500, a bunch of amazing friends, and a lot of dedication. 

All for a story based on a simple premise:

"In an effort to build more powerful soldiers, the Riani King orders the researchers of Northridge to test the use of outlawed sanguis magic on captives from the enemy nation of Dagael. 

Sickened by this work and its high moral cost, Sgt. Mae Duvall convinces her squadron and the Wizen who guide them to abandon their station and warn the Dagaeli leaders of the growing threat. In a desperate bid to prevent a horrific war, they free a group of prisoners and ask them to guide them through the wildlands separating the two nations."  

As this unlikely band of messengers travel, secrets emerge which threaten to tear their fragile alliance apart. Fighting through conflicts between royalty and the military, independent sects of religious warriors, and the constant threat of betrayal, the group struggles to find a united voice in a world thrown into chaos."
