About this project

Hi, I'm Merrell Michael, author of several novels published on the Kindle, which can be found here. http://merrellmichael.blogspot.com/. I'm trying to make the leap from e-book to print, and I need your help.

I've written in several genres, but the one thing I constantly find myself drawn back to is military fiction based on my own experiences in the Marines, overseas. Video Game Crusader is one such work. Here is a link to the first two chapter:

And here is the book on amazon:

Video Game Crusader is the story of seventeen year old James Conner, whose only experience with war is from playing Call of Duty, until he enlists. From there he is dragged into the darkest part of the battle for Fallujah, in Iraq.

Its also the story of the many people fighting around him, both American and Iraqi. I believe I have written an important work, that deserves to see the light of day in print. Help me bring this about!

Risks and challenges

Its a challenge to make the leap from digital to print in publishing. This Kickstarter project will help me make that possible.
