If you are one of those who has purchased a copy of Ghosts in the Yew, you likely have a tale to go with it. Accosted by the author with a smile, a handshake, and a 600-page monster, perhaps at a convention, online, or on a random street corner in Chicago or New York—you met Blake Hausladen and were convinced to give his debut novel a try. He spoke of magic, murder, and statecraft. He told you of horses, and maps, and perhaps teased you with an excerpt.
If you are a fan of fantasies with daring escapes, sword-wielding heroes, and the intrigues of statecraft, magic, and murder, you will be interested to know that Book Two of the Vesteal Series, Native Silver, is due to be released in early 2014, and we here at Rook Creek Books would love for you to read it.
What we are asking you to fund is not the endeavor of writing, cartography, or even editing. These components of this labor of love are accounted for. What you are funding is the creative endeavor of publishing. You are allowing us to reduce production costs, to add color maps, and maintain the same production quality you have come to expect from Rook Creek Books.
Your support of Rook Creek today means as much to us as five hard-fought hardcover hand-sales, and will hurry this a fantastic book into your hungry hands.
