About

The goal is to raise funds for the first issue of this exciting graphic novel series. This first issue sets the stage for a fantastic adventure with a variety of amazing characters. If we can meet this goal we can then have the first issue ready for print, at the latest, by May of 2014. If support goes well we could even push for March or April of 2014. It is our hope to gain momentum after this first issue is released and continue the series to its end.  

The Clock Maker’s Legacy is a steampunk fantasy adventure set in a unique universe rich with history. The story beings with a naïve intellectual named Byron Taubes. He is part of a team that discovers a centuries old clock piece that is in actuality the heart of an ancient powerful weapon. This weapon, the Evisceration Apparatus, defeated an old enemy at the cost of scarring the majority of the land. Byron is determined to uncover the truth of the past, and seeks out a man named Corban Hunt. 

Corban is constantly running away from his past. He was once a Captain in the Crystal City Airfleet and has since gone into hiding. He also happens to be a direct descendant of the original Clock Maker, the brilliant mind that created the clock piece. Given Byron’s extensive research he believes Corban to be important in uncovering the remaining pieces of the weapon. 

Other factions such as the League of Purity, the Museum of Antiquities of the Lost Age, and the Crystal City Airfleet want this powerful weapon. The race is on, and Byron and Corban set out to capture all the pieces before they fall into the wrong hands. Along the way they find a colorful assortment of enemies and friends that help and hinder their success. Comedy, action, drama, and development of characters you truly care about happens while enjoying a lavish universe filled with a wonder that only the steampunk genre can create.

Recently did an interview for DJ Grandpa's Crib. Great podcast show that helps a lot of people get the word out. It was a pleasure being interviewed for the show, and there are other great projects being discussed on this episode as well. I'm third in the line up talking about The Clock Maker's Legacy. Check it out, and by all means spread the word. http://bedrockcommunications.blogspot.com/2013/11/dj-grandpas-crib-patriot.html

http://kickingitforward.org Also, Kicking-It-Forward.I fully support "Kicking-It-Forward"! Kicking it forward is basically an agreement, saying, I'll help other Kick Starters if this project gets fully funded. I already love what kickstarter stands for and love helping people have a real chance at seeing their work come to life.


Risks and challenges

Deadlines are always a concern with any project. Sometimes you run into a few obstacles along the way, and for every problem that may arise there is ALWAYS a solution. It has been a long journey to get to this point with The Clock Maker's Legacy, and Katie Gamb (illustrator), and I have been working on this for nearly two years now. We've been doing everything within our power to get this project done, and we are eager and excited to get it out there for people to enjoy. We both know time management, we both know what it means to take care of customers, and we are DEDICATED to providing outstanding service in conjunction with what we believe to be an outstanding product: The Clock Maker's Legacy.
