The sequel to #1 best-selling Ghost Story and Paranormal Romance on Amazon, When They Come Calling by author Sarah Fleming Mountford.

A strange illness ravages the countryside while Dr. Anna Roberts struggles to recover from her own near-death experience.    

She's in love with three-thousand-year-old ghost, Jedediah, but his alliance with a Council of ancient spirits frightens her. Can his allegiance be trusted?  

Haunted by her dreams and driven by her calling, Anna is torn between the worlds of the living and the dead. Is she a healer or an executioner? Will Anna be able to protect those she loves from her nightmares when they come true?

 Atthis Arts, LLC is the proud publisher of the Anna's Nightmare series.

We are an independent publisher that follows the Partnership Publishing model. Unlike traditional publishers, Atthis Arts strives to keep as much of the creative control in our author’s hands to produce the story that the author wants to tell while still providing professional and peer feedback to ensure a quality story. Our model uses crowdfunding to market and pre-sell titles in order to raise the funds necessary to produce a quality book.

Want extra copies? We think they make great gifts. Just add the following amounts to your pledge, we will collect all of the details later:

  • Add $17 plus shipping (see below) for each additional paperback copy (either book)
  • Add $60 plus shipping for each additional When They Come True limited edition hardcover copy.
  • Add $100 plus shipping for each additional Combined Hardcover edition.
  • Add-ons do not include additional e-books or hardcover acknowledgements.
  • Shipping (per book): $5 US, $18 Canada, $25 International
  • New: Audio-book edition of When They Come Calling, add $10 to your e-book, paperback, or paperback bundle pledge (already included in higher pledge levels at no additional cost), see 3 Nov update for details.

The base funding goal will cover our costs to produce the e-book and print editions, but we'd really love to turn Anna's Nightmare series into audio-books!

If we reach $5000, we will produce an audio-book edition of When They Come True. 

For this stretch goal, we'll add:

  • New reward level: Audio-book edition (will include the corresponding e-book)
  • All rewards at the $60 and higher levels will include the audio-book edition. 

The base funding will allow us to produce a professional book. There are three areas that the minimum funding will go towards to ensure we create a quality product::  

  • Paper/Printing/Binding -- Known simply as PPB in the publishing business, this is the physical construction of the printed books. 
  • Editing -- We use multiple external editors to provide developmental, line, and copy editing to ensure this exciting story becomes a well-produced book. 
  • Author Royalty -- As a partnership publisher, we believe in compensating authors fairly for their hard work.  

Risks and challenges

The good news is that we already have a great story.

Delays in editing, cover design, or events in the author’s personal life would be the most common risks to potentially delaying the completion of this project. Because of our printing methods, risks due to physical production of the books after the manuscript is ready is very small.
