Tales From a Revolution: New-Jersey
Lars D. H. Hedbor's first novel, The Prize, introduced his readers to his rich and moving storytelling style, as well as his ability to give them a visceral sense of the time and place in which the events of the novel took place.
Now, with his triumphant return to the era of the American Revolution, Hedbor turns to the experience of the Quakers, with a close-up view of the aftermath of Lexington and Concord on the family of a blacksmith in the town of Trenton, New Jersey.
Through wrenching loss and incredible personal change, Robert Harris guides his family through the daily hazards of war, while struggling to find clear guidance from his inner voice on navigating the twin threats of a potential loss of religious freedom under renewed British rule and the violation of his most deeply-held beliefs in non-violence, should he join the resistance.
Brief Candle Press is pleased to bring this new novel to a broader readership, and we're excited to offer you the opportunity to be among the first to see it. We have developed a marketing plan that we believe will enable us to exceed the reach of Hedbor's first novel, and we're building a platform for future success in the rapidly-evolving marketplace of fiction publishing.
With the best available expertise in everything from social media to book cover design, from editing to research, we are dedicated to ensuring that as readers, you have the highest-possible quality story to enjoy, and that you are able to engage meaningfully with our authors and their books in the years to come.
In order to launch into the new paradigm of publishing, we have just a few remaining hard costs that we must cover; funds raised beyond that will go into additional marketing efforts and resources.
Thank you in advance for your support of this exciting new venture!
Risks and challenges
The publishing industry is in a state of amazing - even Revolutionary - change at the moment. Little is certain about its immediate future, never mind its long-term prospects.
That said, the risks in this specific project are quite low - the novel is written, the design work complete, and many of the setup costs already incurred. Barring extraordinary, nationally-catastrophic events, you are assured of receiving your Kickstarter Reward; the risks of ongoing operations lie entirely with Brief Candle.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
