About this project

Blackness. The man, who will not know he is Kade Christopher Truth for some time, raises himself on one elbow. He is on the street, what started the day as a street. There were others. Others moving slowly around him. He wonders if he has been drugged. “Hey,” he cries, “Where am I?” He looks down and what he sees cannot be fact. Protruding from his shoulder is a shard of metal, approximately a foot and a half long. Horrified, he realizes it has come far less than that from permanently separating his neck from his torso. Shaking, he pulls at the metal on his way to standing, and it reluctantly leaves. This seems to take weeks. Again, he tries: “Where am I?” Then: “What’s happening?” He is yelling to be heard over the collage of sirens and screams. The strain of talking so loudly is too much for his taxed body, and he finds himself, again, on the freezing concrete. Is it freezing, or is he in shock? It no longer matters. Kade is back in the blissful, midnight darkness. Perhaps he will rest there for a bit.

LIBERTY IS GONE, BUT TRUTH REMAINS. The Truth Saga tells of Kade Truth's super-powered battle against the growing forces of evil.

The Truth Saga is my baby.  I have nurtured the ideas behind it for a decade and it's so awesome and rewarding to see it spread it's wings with Forging Truth.  (No pun intended, to be sure.)  Later this month, I will be doing a blog tour with 20+ stops on to promote the series.  I'll also be doing a few giveaways along the way.

With your help, I'd like to put Corrupting Truth, the second volume in The Truth Saga, on the map, as well.  Here's a little more about what I'm hoping to accomplish.

Primary Project Goal:  My goal is to grow momentum and a larger following for my current novel, Forging Truth, as well as for The Truth Saga as a whole.  I will be able to spread the word, gauge the interest in and reception of my characters, and get real-time feedback from the Kickstarter community.

Secondary Project Goal:  It is also my goal to utilize funds gained through my Kickstarter campaign to pay for any expenses related to the set up and promotion of The Truth Saga.  Some of the potential expenses include book cover design, supplemental material layout and design, advertisement and promotions, fees, leasing space at conventions, travel to conventions, purchasing both author and review copies, and maybe I'll grab some Taco Bell with what's left over.
