About this project
I decided to write The Aquaguardians when I noticed I couldn't find another book which showed us how we as a people could accomplish anything. I wanted to read that story. That story which held us in such an incredible position, being born in a country with such freedoms as we have. I see people everyday who just allow things to happen to them, without ever taking a stand, without raising a voice, without even raising an eyebrow. I wanted to write the story which let everyone know that they are important, that sometimes we should take a stand and be proud, be heard, and be strong. And I have that in The Aquaguardians.
Dr. Calvin Thomas is an intelligent man. The problem is that when he felt betrayed, he lost his way -- and his mind. Unfortunately, he is also arrogant, selfish and powerful. Powerful men step aside for him. So, when he decides to do harm, a large group of people decide to follow him, leaving those who have no resources on the outside, trying to survive and allowing him to reign.
This is the story of those people who were left behind in a world destroyed. This is the story of the few who refused to lie down and let death control them. This is the story of those who refused not to be heard.
I have written other books, but they have never felt as urgent as this one. I have put the others on the back burner until this one is out. I am submitting this work to all those who are looking for the chance to leave this problem filled land behind for a while and come join me in a land far, far away, and to help me to write this book and to give it the extra care it needs in order to make it successful. Unfortunately, I find myself in the position of not being able to put all of my time into it to finish. That is why I am bringing this project to the attention of the Kickstarter family.
This is why I am seeking your attention in making this dream a reality and it is also why I can’t wait to share this work with all of you.
My goal is to raise $25,000. It will be spent on self-publishing 4,000 hard cover copies and 4,000 soft cover copies of the book. 100 of the hard cover copies will have different covers (a little surprise for some who have helped to push this work forward). It will also be used to pay for advertising, editing, publicity, layout, fulfillment, illustrations and all other incidentals. The book has 5 different characters who touch each others' lives in unique ways, to both bring Cal to power and to kickoff his downfall. I want this story to be told the way it was meant to be told. Description is a big thing with me and one of the biggest highlights of the book. Most of my work will be done from the Rocky Mountain area. The research is finished on the east coast. The remainder of the funds will be used to buy the time I need to finish writing the book.and to create audio books.
I have met many amazing people on this journey, people who have spent the better parts of their lives studying water pollutants. They are all behind this book 100% and have contributed where their expertise was needed. They are all anxious to see it finished. Some have donated their time and talents to seeing it work. Some of you will meet them in the newsletter and others may meet them in person. I can’t wait.
If you believe, as I do, that this book will help many begin to take better notice of our abilities in life, and to rediscover the joy of losing ourselves in the written word, then I implore you to help by pledging your support and take part in the world of The Aquaguardians. With your pledge you will receive many fracking wonderful rewards. I am sure you agree. You will find the exchanges on the Kickstarter website. And, thank you, in advance.
Some of the exchanges that are offered are beer steins with the name of one of the main meeting places during the exudus and a picture of the bar on it. Others are pens, tees, bookmarks, chapters I've removed for editing purposes, and many other goodies.
I hope you enjoy this process with me. And wait 'til you meet Kurt...
