About

 The Blake Duology Kickstarter is about only two things, getting the books into the hands of readers and the readers themselves. 

All the books are being offered at an unprecedented price that I otherwise could not provide to readers (most major providers such as Amazon demand that Authors/Publishers provide them with 55% off sticker price. This means Indie-Authors must account also for printing fees with the remaining 45%) leaving little room to make a book affordable for Readers, putting yet another stumbling block in the path of new Authors.

As for the funds raised from this Kickstarter, well that will be used to go to book reviews that Readers trust such as Online Book Club and Readers Favorite as well as having Independent Reviewers review the book to give the best perspective for those who want to read it.

Ultimately, at the end of the day if the book cannot be picked up and read….if the characters and the worlds they live in cannot be imagined and enjoyed… then there was no point putting them in words that will never be shared. Please help me share the Blake Duology so that for a moment they can live.

     Despite their troubled past, the Blake family have found their own kind of perfect. James, a nobleman, and his less than reputable brother Clemit discovered something to live for in James's son, Toby. When jealousy enters their lives in the form of a new personality, all hell breaks loose.
              In a single instant, all of their lives change for the worst. A new greedier villain enters their world wrapping tightly around the one thing that kept everything together, Toby. Toby is forced to fight for his life, as James and Clemit desperately try and find him while avoiding the other villain that is still hungry for more.
              Will the Blake's survive this trial or will they be pulled apart by the hands that have taken hold? 

      A year has passed since Toby went missing and finally it seems that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, but when a terrible accident rips everything away Clemit is left scrambling for new clues.
      At home, James must confront the villain still undefeated finding himself forced to make a decision that could change everything irreconcilably.
      Unaware of the problems outside his prison. Toby fights against the monster whose grip gets tighter every second, afraid that in the end there might be little he could do save lose his life to get free. 

The money earned from our 1st goal will be utilized to 1st pay for the Kickstarter prizes and 2nd get the books to Independent reviewers, buying books, shipping costs (many Independent reviews are very generous with their time and only require books to be shipped and purchased), as well as a bit of the money going to marketing.

It is difficult to guess what people will want in a package, so the prices of the different items will be listed here so that any backer (if they wish) can basically design their own perfect package. All you have to do is add the cost of the item to your chosen package or donation. Have fun creating your own :)

Here are several ways we can reach the goal just on the book packages alone 

At the end of the day, despite the additional swag packages the goal of this Kickstarter is for everyone to leave with a book, also I wanted everyone to see how easy it would be for the goal to be met :) No matter what you choose to give you will be helping the Blake Duology toward success. Every dollar has meaning!

There are special rewards unlocked every time we reach one of the goals of this Kickstarter. Help us unlock all the books to find out what special rewards we have planned for you!

 Publishers Weekly

Devil of Gilding ~

“Knight’s enthralling plot will appeal to Christian readers interested in a story with very clear moral stakes.”


Sammie Reads Books 

 Devil of Gilding ~

 “Amazing plot and story line that keeps the reader engaged. It leaves them looking for clues every chapter if whether the character can solve situation or not.” 

Fallen Angel ~

“Like the previous one, December Knight did a great job at creating a sequel that is on par with the last one. I would highly recommend this book to those who enjoy a good suspense read.”


 Kameo Monson 

“The story, filled with mystery and convoluted plans by more than one villain, kept my attention from page one to page done.”

And thank you very much to all of you who have taken time to give to this Kickstarter or look at it! Your participation and help means more then words can express!

Risks and challenges

Please note that the money from the Kickstarter can take up to 21 days to get through processing to me and team, hopefully, this will not slow down the process. If it does, however, all backers will, of course, be kept up to date!

Many of the packages have handmade items in them that might slow down the process of fulfilling those rewards, however, my team and I are positive that all rewards (even the largest) will be finished within June or early July (sooner if we can). To help this process go smoothly the faster everyone is able to fill out their survey at the end of the Kickstarter the better.

Additionally, my house is up for sale and a long distance move is pending, but I have already discussed this with my team and it should not negatively affect the rewards being sent out on time.
