About

Have you ever had one of those ideas that you just couldn’t pass up? One of those Ideas that would show up later in an infomercial, or on a movie screen?  An idea that you would say, “HEY! I thought of that first!”  Well, this book is my idea, It’s an idea I have been carrying around with me for most of my life.  I probably wouldn’t have shared it with anyone except for the fact my wife made me. Yes that’s right, my wife said, “Stop talking about it and just write it!”  So I shut up, and then after a couple months of thinking about it….I started writing.  Now I have created a world that existed only inside my head-a world with laws, rules, magic, and people. The story has evolved past the point I thought that it ever could.  I started writing a simple story to share and now it’s a book.

I have had it reviewed by an author and a 3rd party blog reviewer, READ THE REVIEW HERE!! --> http://www.sierrabookreviews.blogspot.com/2013/06/the-weapon-bearer-by-aaron-thomas_30.html

OR READ A PREVIEW!!--> www.Kylan514.wix.com/weapon-bearer

So with reluctance I tell you this, I am not an author.  I’m just a guy who is writing a story.  It's a story that has evolved so much that it cannot be contained into one small book.  I intend for this to be a three part series that takes place during medieval times.  How many books depends on the where the story takes me.  My friends who are consulting on the book have told me that I cannot stop until the book is done.  Well, I am proud to say that I couldn't stop.  The book wrote itself.  In fact, the rough draft and edits are complete!

My friends have provided me with a wealth of knowledge and skills.  These have made this story more than I thought it could be.  One thing they could not provide me with is the money to produce this book so that many more would have the opportunity to read it.  So, with reluctance I say: I need help.  I have the idea.  I have the tools.  I have the support of friends and with that a wealth of knowledge.  What I need are the funds.  If you decide to take part in making this dream a reality, I am offering a piece of that idea to you, the reader.  I have listed my rewards on the side for those who donate.  But there are bonus rewards below for additional funding raised:

·#1 – if $5000.00 in donations is raised, I will contact a local library and volunteer to do a book reading to an audience to inspire others to write.

·#2 – If $10,000.00 is raised, I will do a book printing and the top 10 donors will receive a signed copy of the book.  Plus, I will contact two Schools/ libraries to do a book reading to inspire others to write.

·#3 – Every additional $10,000.00, raised I will provide 10 more copies of the books to top donors (i.e. – $20,000.00 = 20 signed books to the top twenty donors.)

·#4 – Every additional $5,000.00 raised from $10,000.00, I will volunteer to read and try and inspire others to write at a local school or library.

·# 5 – When $50,000.00 is reached, I will donate additional 10 books to local libraries and schools.

If you know a way you would like for me to reward donors in this project, please send me an email at weaponbearer@gmail.com.  If it is plausible I will make it happen.  Help me inspire others to share their stories, and ideas.  There is also a preview of the book on my website if you wish to check it out before donating.

So you with all these donations you may be asking what I will be using the money for.  Well, I am about to lay it all out for you.

·Paying Editors and Artists for their part of the book project

·Publishing costs

·Website and forum set up

·Printing manuscripts of the book for marketing peer-review prior to the release

·ISBN numbers for both the E-book and the physical book

·Most of the donations will be going to fill rewards listed on the side

·Printing costs of the books to be given away to those awesome contributors and libraries

·Costs for all the above for the next books in the series

I thank you in advance for considering my project, and for helping it become a reality.  I hope to inspire others to write their book and to share a part of themselves with the world around them.

Risks and challenges

I have a few basic problems....well ok so there not basic. I have never written a book before for starters, but I know people who have. I have used every resource in this project so far that I can muster. I have friends that Edit, Draw, and even a published author working with me to produce this project. Over the last few months I have come a long way in my writing style and abilities. I will complete the project as now I have been told by my reviewers that it has to be finished. It is too good not to be told.

The one big problem that I foresee is book printing. I have no idea where I can get copies made cheaply, but of good quality. I won't have my work printed in some horrible quality paperback just because it saves a buck. I would love nothing more to hold a copy of this in hard cover. Your generous support will be the only way I can. Thank you.
