About

I will be writing two pages every day for 6 months starting in August. These pages will become an adult Science Fiction novel. I decided to give you a chance to read the novel as it's being written. If you choose to kick-start my novel and select the $45 reward, then you will receive 14 pages a week through the mail for 6 months. Because I don't want to add to cutting down more trees, the paper, envelopes, and post cards you receive will be made from 100% recycled paper. With the first envelope there will be a short introduction so that you know what kind of world you are about to enter. There will also be a thank you letter from me for backing my project. 

If you become one of the people receiving the pages through the mail, then you will also get access to a private blog where you can share your opinions about the novel as you read it. I might even incorporate some of your suggestions into the final edited version of the book! 

If you decide that reading 14 pages a week isn't for you, then you might want to pre order the book instead. By the time you get your copy it will be the final edited version. 

You can also support my project and get rewarded with a postcard with the cover art on the front. Maybe you or someone you know lives in Boston and will enjoy my version of the sign.

It is the year 2035 and the world has drastically changed since the Apocalypse of  2018. An unknown virus that spread rapidly killed more than half of the world's human population and 100% of all animals. This virus made all of the animal products that were left completely inedible causing some to turn to eating bugs or... cannibalism. In order to maintain some type of stable society, the brilliant but twisted scientist Dr. Samson developed a way to quickly grow human clones to be used as a source of meat. With the president on his side, they created a strict way of life where you are either with them or you will be banished or killed instantly. Not everyone agreed with this way of life. Some saw the eating of clones as no different than eating the originals so they fled from the cities to live their lives as fugitives. It's a hard way of surviving, which puts them in the same land as brutally violent rogues and cannibalistic psychopaths. 

Sadie, the daughter of the world's most famous scientist Dr. Samson and the Governor of Massachusetts Jaden Samson, was raised in the glamorous world of the clone eaters not knowing of a different way of life. Join her as she discovers the dark side of her family's business and makes choices that will change her life forever.

Check out Update #3 to read the first two pages.

This novel has been in my head for the past 7 years and I'd like to finally make it happen. Nothing will inspire me more to start and finish this novel than an audience - people who are willing to take a chance and read the novel as it's being made, or pre order the finished product. The money made from pre orders will go toward me getting the novel edited by a professional and self publishing it. Luckily I have a lot of experience with making book covers for others and as you can see I've already made one that I like. 

I hope that this book makes people think more about what they eat and where their food comes from. I can't wait to see how it turns out and I hope to see it become a movie someday! 

Copyrighted material ISBN-13: 978-1477670941

Thank you to all who back my project. I hope you enjoy what you read and I know I'll enjoy writing it. 

Have an awesome day and 2012! 

Thanks, Chelsi
