About this project

Editors are expensive!

The Project:

IMPERFECT is a novel I've been writing and refining, on and off, for about two years. I've done a few re-writes, I'm planning another soon, and then will need to hire someone to help proofread it. For a novel as long as mine (almost 450 pages), this can cost anywhere from $500 for a simple proofread to $4000 for a full line-edit.

The more I make on this Kickstarter project, the better I can get the novel, but if I only meet my target, I can still get a significant head start in making IMPERFECT perfect. You can help make it happen!

Promo Art (as mentioned in the rewards):

These are the four pieces of art you can choose from, depending on which reward you pick. Some of them are nearly finished, others I may be doing some major improvements on (I'll update this page as I do so, so no worries about being surprised!):

First--Hardback Dust-Jacket Art ("Hall of Badakor"):

Second--Map of Samai Ehno ("Samai Ehno"):

Third--Fly By Poster ("The Claymore"):

Fourth--Paperback cover art ("Battle Worn," currently being improved):

    Everything from the $115 award, PLUS I'll draw you as a character from the world of Atanoah! You can choose what variety, whether a Lower Knight, a Keizra (their moral enemies), or any variety of ruffians and scoundrels. I'll do a sketch and a full ink and color. I'll send you the signed, original pencil sketch as well as a few prints of the final work. PLUS the drawing will appear in the back of a definitive hardcover edition (not one of the reward copies, unfortunately). I may even use the character in one of my upcoming graphic novel projects. (I think the "includes shipping" goes without saying for this one)
