About

 REVIEWS

"... extremely good first contact story, with well written characters, in a thrilling plot that kept the reader engaged in the book..." - Kindle Customer

"...we had ages-old aliens who were both all-knowing and foolish. We had mad grabs for power from a variety of sources that made for fabulous scenic climaxes. Seriously, those were the best parts. Each book had its own scene with massive amounts of drama and intrigue. More importantly, they had someone going batshit crazy, which is always the best part in any book." - Brenda Ayala, Book Reviewer, Goodreads

"...I did enjoy many aspects of the story. A lot of the characters were a lot of fun. Sean was wonderfully loyal and steadfast to his crew and I REALLY enjoyed some of the crew's quirks. I was especially fond of the constant running pools and the importance of food. Cookie was arguably the most important person on board. The mixing of Wicca and Science was in interesting plot device..." - Sadie Forsythe, Book Reviewer, Goodreads

The Synopsis

Sean Blakemore, Commander of the GRID Battlecruiser Reginald L Johnson, wallowed in self-loathing. He drank too much, suffered from depression, and swam in self-pity. He figured life could not suck any worse when he received new orders. He had to hand the Johnson over to another commanding officer. God hated him he thought.  

Then . . . Dr. Loggar, head scientist in charge of this new mission, drew him into the semi-secret world of The Most High Goddess. She gave him hope. 

After searching the galaxy for centuries, The Most High Goddess found planet Necron, the origin of Magick. They also discovered Captain Sean Blakemore is one of a handful of humans with the ancient alien DNA that can unlock the planet's vast powers. If you like fast-paced space fight scenes, story arcs told episodically with nods to the great Space Opera writers, wonderful character development, then you'll love J Carrell Jones' fascinating world where ancient alien nano-technology is the force behind Magick, and the good guys really are good.

GRID Traveler Trinity is a story of Sean’s redemption, from rock bottom to discovering Humankind’s true origins and possibly its inevitable future.

My Passion  

The GRID Traveler series was a labor of love, learning, and fulfillment. I first came up with the story idea back in 1993. It took another 10 years for me to flush out a good story and commit the first book to "paper". In 2012 I took the leap and "published" GRID Traveler: Distant Reality and GRID Traveler: Alien Shores on Amazon, Kobo, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble. Book three, Lines Crossed, was released in 2013. Later that year, I decided to go the hardcopy route. Since then, the series has gone through edits and some rewrites. After having put out two audiobooks, RAGE and Enemy Me, it's time for GRID Traveler Trinity to be graced with a Narrator.  


The Process    

Producing an audiobook is not that different from publishing a book. There's the content, the means of encapsulating the content, and the distribution of the content. Having already experienced the concept-to-conception cycle with two other audiobooks GRID Traveler Trinity's journey should be relatively smooth. That is, I've already made mistakes and missteps. One learns to work smarter, not harder.

   

The Cost 

Trinity, like the other two audiobooks, will use a SAG-AFTRA member. Generally, a good, well seasoned, Narrator will charge from $200 - $400 per finished hour. Even if it took the Narrator 20, 30, or 40 hours of reading, recording, and editing, you are only charged for the finished book. Trinity is over 104,000 words, which will run a bit over 11 hours. And, of course, there are the other costs: packaging, mailing material, CDs and USB editions, Kickstarter and processing fees.

Risks and challenges

And here we have the ultimate question: will my money be wasted? Succinctly, no.

Mythical Legends Publishing has five years of experience in publishing books. We have two-years experience in producing games (Magick Journey, Get the . . . Dinosaur Egg, Inappropriate, Pirate's Play, and Dante's Mission), and we've produced two audiobooks.

We have a Narrator who will be an active producer in getting GRID Traveler Trinity made.

We set some of the delivery dates so, if anything happens, we can still successfully meet our deadlines.

Our process and pipeline are established. All artwork is in-house. We use major printers and distributors who are proven and have delivered on time every time.

To guarantee the collector's edition number order of the Kickstarter paperback and hardback we will submit book orders in batches. Book 1 will be ordered first. Books 2 through 5 will be ordered second. Books 6 through 10 will be ordered after that. Books 11 - 20 will be ordered last. The rest of the exclusive paperback books will be ordered as a short run. The hardcopy prints will be ordered in batches, too. Prints 1 and 2 will be ordered separately. Books 3, 4, and 5 will be ordered last.

We're very confident we can fulfill this campaign because it is not too different from what we've done in the past.
