About

Writer of Occult fiction, Bastian Crow, appears to have everything: talent, fame, money and looks. But he is fighting to come to terms with a secret hidden deep in his past which has left him fractured, a secret which some one wants to keep concealed. They will go to any lengths  to ensure the truth stays hidden, they have murdered three times... Bastian Crow's past is about to catch up with him, Bastian Crow is next.

Kindred is ready for publication, Vanguard, have agreed to take it, but, as it is impossible for an unknown author to get a traditional contract for a first novel, I need to make a contribution.

The second book in this series is already underway and should be ready for a follow up late 2014, early 2015, and has already been optioned by Vanguard.

Risks and challenges

Risks: The book is finished and I have the contract ready to sign. The only risk is that the publisher might change their mind, in which case I will use the money to publish it myself. One way or another this book IS getting published.

Challenges: Raising the money in the first place, then marketing it to local and national bookshops and the public. I have the brass-neck to stand in front of people and do book-signings but I need something to present to them.
