About this project

Welcome!

This is a project I've been working on for 4 years, and I want to invite you in. Endospore is the sum of my entire writing life that started back in 7th grade. I've written six books in total, though most of them have been (this is hard to say) garbage. That's the thing about writing though. It takes a lot of work to develop your skills high enough to produce professional quality work. I've arrived... but the funding hasn't.

I want to do this correctly, but independently. I'm going this route as I want to maintain complete control over the process myself, allowing me to keep the story how I want it, not how a committee thinks it should be. This also opens up a lot of different options to play with, which includes an audio book. All funds collected will go to publishing in both paperback and hardback, as well as much needed copy editing. Any funds collected over what is needed will be put into making the audio book a better production.

Endospore is a fantasy novel full of unique characters and plot twists that are not obvious from the first paragraph. It's primarily the story of Alan Mustang, a young man trying to find his place in a world that has been all but eviscerated. He lives in Midgard, the once scientific hub of planet Ildor. When the Divine Finger came and destroyed the world in the Cataclysm, only Midgard survived. The surface is now an uninhabitable wasteland, and society is regressing back to an unenlightened age as the population dwindles.

Alan is quickly swept up into the hidden underworld of Midgard, where a religious cult plans the dismantling of society, and a rebel army fights against the Governor. Alan finds it hard to discern friend from foe, but when he discovers the secrets behind the Cataclysm and the Divine Finger, it becomes a race against the clock to save humanity from itself. I know, right? So once again, I want to welcome you into my world. Please join me and help make this a reality.
