Adventures of the Salamander: Return of the Mirms - New Kickstarter Project Launched!


Hello Everyone! I'm writing to inform you that a new Kickstarter project has been launched for the sequel to "The Adventures of the Salamander," a book I am calling "Return of the Mirms." Here's a link to the new project, please check it out ... oh, and sorry about the fact that my kids sabotaged the video...

Anyway I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you for backing the original project, and to express my hopes that you found it a rewarding experience. I have really high hopes for this project, and I'm excited to mention that the reward system has been vastly improved. A $25 donation gets you the actual printed book in the new project.

Also, this project is a bit more ambitious than the last one, but with good reason. Last time, I underestimated the amount of time it would take me to illustrate and format the books. Also, I only asked for enough money to print a few copies of the series. This time, I have allotted enough time, and with the funds generated, I should be able to print 1000 copies of "Return of the Mirms."

Anyway, I hope you'll consider clicking the link in order to check out the new project, and please, as always, share it with your friends!

P.S. Assuming everything goes as planned, the books are scheduled to be shipped out to you (the wonderful backers) by November/December, so this is a great opportunity to get your holiday shopping done early :)

Whether you use PC or Mac, It should run right in your web browser.  However, if you have an older computer, it might not run very smoothly.  I will be uploading a link to download the windows version of the game very soon.  I am also working on the Android version of the game, which should be up and running in a couple weeks.

Try it out, and let me know what you think!

The Adventures of the Salamander Commercial

Thanks to all of you, The Adventures of the Salamander is now in its second edition.  As a result, I am trying to promote it through Social Media, Book Stores and other means.  I've made a commercial that introduces the books, here:

I hope you'll watch it, and share it with other people.  Let me know if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions.  Once again, thank you for your support!

Sold Out!

It's official... The Adventures of the Salamander - Book I" has been sold out!  I was invited to a wonderful event at Glenn Westlake Middle School in Lombard, Illinois.  They asked me to tell the story behind the books, and by the end of the evening, Book I was all sold out.

There are still copies of Books II and III available, so if you've already got Book I, you can still get the whole set.  The holidays are just around the corner... just sayin'.
