INCURSION: Faeblade

INCURSION: Faeblade

INCURSION: Faeblade is the second book in the Knight's Bane Trilogy. 

In the first book, INCURSION: Knightmare, we are introduced to Team Knightmare, a secret government team recruited to hunt monsters and hide their activity from the normal world. INCURSION: Knightmare saw the team on their first training mission, a simple cleanup of a small nest of new vampires. That mission turned out to be something worse. 

In this new book, the Section 28 team is up against an enemy of a different kind. A popular fae-only nightclub is attacked, all the fae present are slaughtered, and Section 28 is blamed. It is up to Team Knightmare, with the help of a new recruit and an observer from across the ocean, to prove that humanity is innocent before the fae declare war.

There is a fae war brewing, and humanity is stuck in the middle. Can Team Knightmare save humanity from the fae?

What will happen with the funding?

There are three major reasons I'm asking for the funding:

  • Print Books - I'm using this project to fund the purchase of an initial print run of the books, both softcover, and hardcover.
  • Marketing Materials - I'll be designing and producing marketing materials (such as flyers and bookmarks) as well as purchasing internet ads to promote the new book.
  • Grand Rapids Comic-Con - I've been accepted to Artist Alley at GR Comic-Con this year (October 21-23, 2016) and will be using the funding to purchase supplies and peripheral materials for the show, plus extra books and promotional items.

Who is Bryan Donihue / Section 28 Publishing?

I am an author and a study in contrasts. I have been a youth pastor, a police officer, a retail sales manager, and a security officer. I have worked on computers for small and large companies, worked in fast food, and been a vault manager for an armored car service. I currently own, or co-own, four businesses, and am a volunteer ministry team leader in my local church. As an author, I have published both fiction and non-fiction and am working on a roleplaying game for 2017. 

Section 28 Publishing is the publishing company I started specifically to publish my own fiction, as well as an upcoming roleplaying game based on the same world. It is also the company I work under as an author and author consultant.

Risks and challenges

There are always Risks when creating a project, However I am do my best to mitigate those Risks.

1. This is not my first crowdfund. I've been a backer for years on Kickstarter. While this is my first project on Kickstarter, I ran a successful funding campaign on Indiegogo last year. Even though there were delays in editing, everyone did get their product.

2. Editing: The book is going to editing just after this Kickstarter goes live. I will do my very best to make the deadlines, and I have taken specific steps to do so.

3. The Book: This is not my first book. The cover is mostly laid out as this drops, all the marketing has begun, and I know exactly what it takes to produce e-book, softcover, and hardcover through my suppliers.

3. The Suppliers: I've used all my suppliers before - and the biggest one is Amazon. I know their tech specs and requirements and currently use their services to produce my other books. I do not anticipate any real problems here.

4. The Unknown: Barring some horrific freak accident, this campaign will finish, backers will receive their rewards, and I will spend a lot of time signing books. My goal is to get you the rewards on time.
