Help fund development, creation, and marketing of a fiction series featuring vampires and mages in a cyberpunk setting.
It's been my dream since the age of twelve to be a writer, not just as a hobby, but as what I do, and what I'm known for. My brain is full of ideas that I would like to put to paper, or to screen, or even in games. I simply like telling stories.
However, sustained motivation is a problem, and has brought an end to several novels before they've had a chance to really flourish. This project is an attempt to give writing another chance, and finish something I often start. With your help, I can complete this episode, and even work on marketing future episodes. With enough success at Kickstarter, I am convinced I can become a published author.
The idea is simple, if I meet very modest funding goals, I buckle down and write the episode. If I cannot meet the goal within 30 days, then it may be an indicator that it's simply not meant to be. Though if I get a few episodes in, then I will do my best to provide a closure episode should an episode not receive enough backing.
I've completed Episode 1, which lays a foundation for the rest of the series, but doesn't even scratch the surface of what I have in store. Recently, the project for Episode 2 was successfully backed. Added to the reward tiers is the option to catch up and get both episodes by backing the project.
If you are into action, fantasy, cyberpunk, sci-fi, or just stories involving vampires, please give Episode 1 a read. I welcome all feedback good and bad, even if you decide not to become a backer.
AUDIO BOOK VERSION - Not that it's worth a lot (who likes the sound of their own voice?), as a bonus if the project can reach $500.00 of funding, I will produce an audio reading of the episode, and make it available for all backers.
FORMATS - I'm very flexible and willing to work with anyone who requests a format not currently available.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
