Second in a Fantasy series set in Ireland where nothing is as it seems, underground cities abide, snake people prowl, and goblins await
Legends of Erin: Towards the Restless Winds is the continued journey of Irish twins Fadin and Tase. A story of magic, mystery, loss, adventure, growing up, and the fight for good in the face of evil. The first book in what will be a seven book series, Legends of Erin: Beyond the Castle Door was released in the end of 2011.
So far, I have personally sold over 1,100 copies in a year period, that does not include sells of my publishing house in the UK, Barnes&Noble.com, or Amazon. I sell up in Big Bear Village every weekend, I do school assemblies and library programs. I have attended Irish/Scottish fairs and I do book signings wherever I can.
The hard part is done, the first book is already out, The second book is written, the artwork complete, the cover designed, and the completed work is scheduled to come out the beginning of August.
So Why Kickstarter?
The production of a book has costs, and there are expenses that have been incurred in creating this novel. The money raised here will remove the remaining balance of production for Towards the Restless Winds, such as editing, critiquing, printing, and marketing.
This is also a great avenue to connect with my readers and give them personalized items they could not get elsewhere which are handmade by me, the author/artist. Plus it allows them to have a very important part of bringing this entire series into reality.
Beyond the Castle Door (book 1)
Having spent an ordinary life with their parents in a small house, twins, Fadin and Tase, together with their elder brother Clearie, suddenly find themselves catapulted into quite a different life when their father is killed in a car accident and they are forced to move with their mother into their Aunt's mysterious Irish castle surrounded by dangerous woods.
They find themselves involved in baffling situations which only goblins and magic can explain and only their inquisitiveness and daring finally uncovers answers to some of the many questions they puzzle over. But the reader is left fully immersed in the strange world around the castle and longing to know about the many things that still have to be explained - in the next book?
Towards the Restless Winds (book 2)
After suffering the loss of their father and moving into their aunts mysterious Irish Castle, twins, Fadin and Tase, find themselves thrust into the magical world, and more importantly, on a quest to save those who matter most.
With the Advisor to the King chasing them on one end, and the terrible Bojin famiy on the other, the boys are hurtled into a race against time, not only for themselves and those they love, but to be the first to find an object of great power and evil before it falls into the wrong hands.
With the pressure and dangers mounting, lives hang in the balance and the stakes are high.
