About this project

I began the Fovean Chronicles in the early 1980's as a project in college. I've picked it up and put it down a dozen times between then and now.

The push to get published began with a major rewrite of the story in 2008. In 2010, I was picked up by Sky Warrior publishing, and the stories are now being made available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Smashbooks.

I need to finish the series, which means I need to set everything else aside that I'm doing and get down to it.

That will take me about 1/2 a year, and I'll need some money to pay my bills in the interrim. That's what I'm asking for.  This will put to bed a project that I've been committed to for 22 years, from conception, through rewrites, to the end.

Meanwhile, it's a unique opportunity for you, as a reader, either to be a part of it or, as w fellow author, to get your work critiqued by someone who has very recently been published, and who isn't going to waste your time speculating as to what everyone is looking for now.

Eleven thousand people have followed the Fovean Chronicles at different times.  It receives great reviews across the Internet.  The ending is going to leave you with your mouth open.

I appreciate any help you can send me.

Risks and challenges

Right now, my major risk is that what I do normally, programming, has never been hotter. I could just keep working and make about $100k in the same period of time. As well, as I'm not programming, I'm becoming more out of date. Six months is forever in the world of IT. This will give me a breather as I get back up onto my feet.

In the mean time, the clock is ticking. I have a publisher wanting to release, and for a very brief time I have a world class artist doing my covers. While I have his ($10,000) bill covered, it takes up all of my funds. I could very easily end up with covers and no books!

    You can outline a character, and I'll include him/her in the final novel. You won't get any royalties, but you'll get a mention in the story credits as the developer of that character.

    I reserve the right to make the character fit into the story.
