About this project

Hello internet! Welcome to the kickstarter for my first book of poetry, entitled “Condor.” This book encompasses my work from Spring 2011 through Winter 2013. It consists of 15 poems, all of which are long-form and in-depth.

Condor tackles and is formed by a panoply of emotional themes, with rage, love, anxiety, and yearning wrapped into a conversation with creation myths and the sublimity of personal and family histories.

My goal is $300, and the project is intended to be set up as a ransom: once the goal is reached, the book will be released online for free, with a “Pay What You Want” model, and will be available for download and reading.

The book features some absolutely stunning cover artwork by the very talented Amanda Carney, and much of the goal money will be slated for her commission. The book is complete, and laid out; it will be released the moment the kickstarter ends.  

I am a writer who works in a multitude of genres, with a large body of work in writing and running roleplaying games. I’m a co-producer and member of the Drunk and Ugly Actual Play Podcast, and as such, the donation rewards for this project will provide some access to those of you who are interested in the podcast and are Actual Play fiends. 

The 10 RPG actual plays will be released for download as soon as the primary goal is met. The skype games will be original horror scenarios, played in either Fear Itself, Trail of Cthulhu, or Call of Cthulhu. 

I will begin scheduling the skype games as soon as the kickstarter ends.

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and thank you for backing the project!

Risks and challenges

The only risks and challenges involved in the completion of the project will be the scheduling and shipping of the rewards; podcasts must be recorded, backers must be contacted, and any physical copies of the book will need to be printed and shipped.
