A small group of Watchers once lived near the shore of southern Korea. Through their ability in martial arts, aided by a magic stone, they were invincible.

They came in pairs. The Gadeu, or guard, had supernatural ability in martial arts and eternal life so long as he wore the stone. With him always was Bohoja, his protector, who could shapeshift into an animal.

Together, they brought justice to the world around them—so long as they never let personal desires dictate their actions.

There’s was a life of service.

Within a decade of the gold rush in California, fortune seekers traveled deeper in the “Golden Mountain” searching for more. What they found instead was a source for the rare stone. Deep in Idaho Territory, the star garnet shines on its own—but only if a Gadeu activates it.

Counterfeit shifters have discovered a way to harness the stone. Now, with the power of eternal life and shape-shifting…

one man will use a legend to change the tides of the civil war and the world

one man will discover the price of sacrifice to keep power over others

and a woman will become what she sought to destroy.

Dance of the Crane Series

The story is completed and this will be the second series I've published. My previous novels have done well, I just have bigger dreams for this series and I need your help.

The funds will help me cover the costs of copy editing, book cover design, promotional materials and marketing for all three books.

#1 -- Stone of Asylum (March 2017)

#2 -- The Reckoner's Blade (May 2017)

#3 -- Heiress of Coeur d'Alene (July 2017)

 

 

Risks and challenges

There is not a risk of me completing the series, as I have already done that.

I have also followed through with publishing before, so there are not really risks there. Sometimes there are unforeseen delays in the editing and proofing process but I believe I have provided sufficient time for the publishing dates.

I have also built in extra time to mail the rewards so I don't foresee any delays in packaging, signing, or shipping.
