I am ABSOLUTELY targeting commercial success! :) I have been building this novel series for over 8 years and I've always believed in it's potential to do well in the marketplace. World Conflicts will be a new fantasy series that will bring its own uniqueness to the fantasy genre.
I managed to created a completely new fantasy universe with an original story. There are no elves, orcs, vampires, werewolves, wizards, witches, dragons, or anything else from traditional fantasy in World Conflicts. I've created the creatures/characters in this fantasy universe to be completely fresh introductions to fantasy. Also, there is "magic" in World Conflicts, but it is a different magic system than we are use to seeing in fantasy.
Of course all of these new introductions doesn't guarantee that my novel will be successful, but I believe it has a real shot at it. At the very least, I have this incredible story/universe that I've created and I want to share it with the world!
Yes, I do plan to self-publish, but I'm doing it through a company that has helped over 500,000 titles get published in the past 14 years. After I obtain the funds, iUniverse will exercise their professional talents to market my book for the maximum commercial success.
