The world may not have been destroyed, but that doesn't mean the trouble is over...
After her best friend is pulled into the supernatural underworld, Branwyn isn’t about to sit on the sidelines. Unfortunately, Branwyn is decidedly mortal, and in the supernatural underworld, humans are weak and helpless, no better than toys, tools and prey. But she isn’t having any of that. Branwyn wants to face the world on her own terms, mortal or not.
When she strikes a bargain with an imprisoned faerie, Branwyn thinks she’s found the solution. He’ll teach her magic and she’ll use that magic on his behalf. It’s a great deal, until she discovers what the faeries really want from her: there’s a door that only she can open…

We're already planning ahead and swinging for the fences with this one. Chrysoula has limbered up her writing arm, and we're offering some crazy-awesome escalator rewards...
UNLOCKED - $500: Swag!
At $500 in pledges, everyone who backs for $20 or more will get a Bag O' Swag relating to the novel. No telling what's in it, but we promise it will be neat!
UNLOCKED - $750: Hello, Cupcake
At $750, we'll release Severin's Evil Cupcake Recipe to the wild (that is, to all backers).
UNLOCKED - $1,000: Severin Art
At $1,000, we'll commission a portrait of Severin. All backers at the $20 and up level will get a digital copy of the portrait, while backers at $75 and up will get a glossy print!
UNLOCKED: $1,500 Preview Chapter
We've already made the first two chapters of the book available for everyone to preview, but if we make $1,500 in preorders, we'll add a third preview chapter, available to backers only! Check the Updates for a sneak peek.
UNLOCKED: $2,000: Tasty Cupcake
At $2,000, anyone who backs for $25 and up will get Severin's Evil Cupcake Recipe, plus a Cupcake Kit! The basic kit will go out to $25 and $35 backers, while backers at the $45 level and up will get the full cupcake experience - recipe, cupcake liners, and homemade cupcake mix!
But wait...there's more!
You keep the funding flowing, Chrysoula will keep the words flowing! She's prepared to write a LOT of stories in the Senyaza world over the course of the next two years, which you can unlock!
How many stories? Well...that all depends on you!
Chrysoula is ready and willing to write a whole mess of short stories, novelettes, novellas, and even a whole brand-new novel. It all depends on how interested all of YOU are in getting more stories!
At certain funding levels, stories will unlock. For some, everyone will get a new story; for others, it'll just be people at the $45 and up levels. No matter what, if you back for $45 or more, you will get all unlocked stories.
We can tell you that there's the potential for 8 short stories, 3 novelettes, 2 novellas, and a novel...maybe even more, if we really go crazy with this!
And this is IN ADDITION to all the other stretch goals! Phew!

Risks and challenges
While there are risks in every project, we've already addressed most of them here! We're experienced book publishers, specializing in fantastika, and we're ready to bring this book to the world.
The manuscript is done, edited, and typeset; the cover art is in; the book is queued for production and WILL launch in November 2013 - we're just looking for pre-launch interest and a way to help pay for the initial printing costs.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
