My first three books have been financially successful, despite being self-published and having never been professionally edited. I am now working on a fourth novel, which should be done in July, and I want to hire a really great editor and cover artist to make this book the best it can possibly be.

This next story is about the crew of a spaceship salvage operation, who crash land on a world far behind them technologically. Their jump drive is damaged beyond repair, meaning that they cannot leave orbit, so they try to make a life among the native population. With their extensive technological knowledge, they are able make incredible spectacles for the natives. The crew hires themselves out to governments, promising to make their desired miracles come true. They skirt charges of witchcraft, escape armies screaming for their blood, and face a saboteur who destroys the only radio that might help them call home.  The working title for this story is "We Fulfill Prophecies".

Before I publish this story, I want to get enough money together to hire industry veterans for editing and cover art. In exchange for supporting the endeavor, backers will receive e-books, thumb drives, polo shirts, limited edition hardback books, and every backer will be named in the new book.

So join in and help us make this a book that would rival any adventure coming out of New York.
