About this project

In the last 18 months, Sordelet Ink has grown from publishing e-books to print and even a DVD documentary (in association with Cinema Video). Now we are branching out even further into audiobooks! But to rent the studio and hire the talent and producers, we need capital! Help us in the creation of the final component of getting these books to our audience through Audible.com and other audiobook distributors. 

We're starting with David Blixt's award-winning Star-Cross'd series - The Master Of Verona, Voice Of The Falconer, Fortune's Fool, and the latest installment, The Prince's Doom. If we surpass our goal, we can also add the first two novels of the Colossus series, Stone & Steel and The Four Emperors. 

We've been so fortunate in our friends, and we believe in these stories - named Editor's Choice by the Historical Novel Society, and praised by such literary luminaries as Sharon Kay Penman, CW Gortner, Helen Hollick, Michelle Moran, and MJ Rose. In the modern world, audiobooks are a vital component of any publishing company, opening up these thrilling works of historical fiction to a whole new audience. Please consider helping us share our work with listeners all over the world! 

"For anyone who has yet to read David's novels, you are about to hit the literary lottery. Yes, he's that good." - Sharon Kay Penman, The Sunne In Splendour

"David Blixt is a master of historical fiction. Dramatic, vivid, superbly researched, this series captures Renaissance Italy in all its heady glamour and lethal intrigue." - C.W. Gortner, The Tudor Conspiracy

"This is one of the most exciting, and satisfying, reads that I have immersed myself in for a long time. David Blixt is a gem of a writer." - Helen Hollick, The Pendragon Trilogy

Risks and challenges

Though the stories we tell are grand and magnificent, in life we're a very small company - there's just two of us making all this happen. But we believe in these stories so deeply, we want to share them with as many people as possible. To do that, we need the support of our friends. Thank you.
