£2,060

Originally started as an entry into the November 2013 NaNoWriMo - New Novel Writing Month competition - As part of a challenge to write a 50,000 word novel in just 30 days, "ONE MAN AND HIS DOGMA" has since evolved into a novel in excess of 100,000 words over a 2 year period, that has tested and pushed me to be the best writer i can hope to be.

The novel tells the story of our protagonist James Edmunds.
James is a widowed husband and bereaved father to a wife and child tragically lost in childbirth.
Struggling to come to terms with life after his loss, James is unaware that figures from myth, religion and legend are after him to become their new figurehead in a cosmic game of Chess now approaching its grand finale.

A story that unfolds over five distinct timelines, involving Gods, Devils, The Riders of The Apocalypse and an entire cast of creatures from Myth and Scripture, alongside a man who has lost everything and just wants to be left with his loneliness and loss.

This is an epic story of Love, Loss, Retribution and Tea.
Lots and lots of Tea.

By funding and contributing you will be directly helping me toward my goal of having the novel made available on all high profile digital book download outlets - such as iTunes and Amazons Kindle store. Your contribution will also go toward allowing me to have a limited but high quality print run of published paperbacks printed.

Completed with a professional edit and design.

Any additional funds would be used toward publication press campaign and additional materials such as illustrations and online press mastheads and banners.

You would also be directly helping me start what i hope to be a new career as a professional full time writer of fiction - Both short and long form.

Risks and challenges

Other than possible delays in print and completion of the Illustrations and artwork and short stories offered in the rewards, the risk to any contributors is minimal.

Time-frames put in the Reward details are to allow for completion with good time for all reward levels.
