About this project

To get this series up and running I need a kickstart! The money will be used for self publishing and advertisement costs, as well as the sustainability of the author. The book itself is already completed, with the second one in the works. Be a part of the process! And receive special signed copies as a result of your donation.

After The Dark is my child, my debut novel, and self publishing feels like the right way to go. I plan on pouring my soul into this series, and know that it will be well received. The money from Kickstarter will fuel my handmade project by providing, professional editors, hiring the use of public printing processes, and all the rest that goes into book making.

For those who read. This is a story in a world outside of reality; but close enough to be felt. Here's the synopsis:

Darkness can make sane men go mad. But it is the light that frightens Eflin. Elfin kind have hidden underground for thousands of years. Never daring to venture into the light.

In Haven, light means death. The world is filled with monsters bred to kill Elfin, and the Elfin have no defense. Long underground, they have forgotten magic, forgotten what it means to breathe fresh air.

Pil Persins longed to see the outside. The Exidite of his mound were his one chance out, away from the poverty of his broken town. Exidite can go outside, even if only during the night, Exidite can breathe fresh air.

Becoming an Exidite will change everything for his family. Becoming an Exidite will change everything...

Pil is finally outside breathing fresh night air. But on his first Exidite mission, he returns to find his whole squadron dead. His Captains last words are to warn of a traitor. Pil finds out very soon that the outside world is just as cold as the underground. Elfin can die, Elfin can kill, and Elfin can betray.

Risks and challenges

The risks for me are: lack of financial resources, and lack of positive response for the product. The risk for you is at a minimum of one dollar, for five chapters.
