About

Why I need a Kickstart

Even self publishing has a big price tag.  I have been writing short stories and bits and pieces of Blood and Blessings for over 20 years but lacked the faith I needed to seek out publishing.  When I put the last chapter in place and felt the excitement of my book, I decided that it needs to be read, and though it is a fantasy of good vs evil, the characters, with their deep emotional connections and epic struggles are both inspiring and endearing.  This story will captivate you as you travel the broken empire with Savane and find how to make it whole again.  

I have researched the editing process and the publishing hurdles I have to navigate in order to make sure you get the best product for the support you are giving me.

Please help me to share my amazing story!

What it means for you

I have some awesome rewards planned, Whether you are looking for the Lady's gratitude in the form of valuable recognition as one of the books steadfast supporters to Loyalty of the Empress with a minimum release serialized signed hardcover book!

Blood and Blessings  

The empire was shattered. The gods destroyed, their essence was passed to those closest in the battle. As the blood passed from the god's who destroyed Vetis, the new Gods and nobility were born. But as Vetis' blood was passed the dark legion was born. 

 The lady Savane is betrothed to Prince Verentine, before he and his sister, Balae arrive, Savane uncovers a dark mystery surrounding the death of her mother and the dark God's attempt at resurrection. With a knight, bound by duty as her champion and an unwilling prince, refusing to marry her, and carrying his own dark secrets, she sets out to finish what her mother once started. 

In a world of magic Savane finds there is more to all of them than the families they were born into.  A prophecy guides them as a young goddess seeks to lead them to their salvation.  And a Dark God seeks to destroy them all.  

Blood and Blessings is a fantasy that I have been building for 20 years, with a deep intricate plot that spans multiple books and generations of characters. Fall in love with heros of humble beginnings as they fight to stop the rebirth of a Dark God on his journey to recapture the realm.

Risks and challenges

I hope to raise enough money to cover the publishing costs of the first book so that I can continue my journey to becoming an author, I hope to launch in October of 2017 all the while writing the sequel to Blood and Blessing, Blood and War which literally picks up where book one leaves off. These are big goals, I hope you're with me.
