About

Crimson Skies is what happens when you take a typical sword-and-sorcery novel, tell it in a way you could actually imagine speaking, and set it in a time period we wish the 1800s were like, while paradoxically withholding none of the darkness of the era. 

The story follows the crew of the eponymous Crimson Sky, a privateer airship caught in the ceaseless power-struggles around them. Pressed from all sides, they must to reconcile with their own failings and fight against unfavourable odds in the name of forces they do not and cannot fully understand. In the end, they are ultimately forced to decide what is right in a world so broken that they cannot even remember what the right thing is. 

This book represents a dream that I have held since I was five years old now made possible, but at a cost that is prohibitive to me at this moment. Money gathered in this way will go to the production of cover art, the hiring of an editor, and the up-front costs of putting my book in places where it can be seen. 

I can only ask that you would help me make this dream of mine possible, and you have my thanks for your support, regardless of whether or not you choose to donate. 

Risks and challenges

While I can guarantee the book is written as a manuscript, I have limited control over publishing and production. I also have to tell you that this is a YA fantasy novel, so it does not fit all tastes, but I do hope you enjoy it all the same.

    Name a character in the sequel

    There will be many characters in Crimson Skies 2: Electric Boogaloo (actually we're going with A Distant Place for copyright reasons) but if you donate this amount, not only will you get a digital copy and all that jazz, you will also get your very own rando. Feel free to take this opportunity to derail the story as much as possible, though I only guarantee their name will be mentioned once.
