Fans of Enders game or Ready Player One will find VEG a welcome companion, being predicated upon the idea of a fascinating and attainable future.

When Charles Sanders, the inventor of the revolutionary game VEG, dies of unknown circumstances, a catalyst occurs, awakening heroes and revealing villains. Follow four characters on their journey to save or destroy humanity as they ride the waves of code that engulf our planet. VEG (Virtual Earth Grid) an augmented reality game brings all of their separate worlds crashing together to reveal the terrible truth. Will their haunting pasts lay waste to their future or will the idea of hope prevail and save our world?  This book is written from the future documented by different media sources and personal journals to unfold the events of the past. 

I am reaching out to Kickstarter because I would like to fund my first novel to print. The money will go toward printing and developing augmented reality art that brings the cover to three dimensional life, letting you experience a tiny piece of what VEG will be like. Although not many people know about augmented reality today it will become a part of our every day lives in the near future. This novel gives an insight into how this technology could be used to improve our world; an unconventional stance that opposes the usual view that future technology is adversarial to humanity.

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges with VEG have been getting it ready to release and finding the right augmented reality artist to bring the cover art to life. This is the greatest expense I have but worth it. I do not have a literary agent and find my time better spent on writing my next story. That is why I'm reaching out to fellow members of Kickstarter to bring this book to life the way I would like it done. The publishing industry has changed and I believe that Kickstarter is a way to get your work out while keeping your original story intact.
