About

Dust jacket, first draft.
Dust jacket, first draft.

"If Faust were a 21st century metal-minded former punk with too much libido and a major attitude problem, this would be her story."

Quantum Demonology began as a serialized novel on a blog. 

When I discovered it three years ago, I knew that one day I'd see it on bookshelves. I loved the book; I had no idea that I'd be the one to publish it. When I asked Sheila if she'd let me do it, without any frills, without an advance, and only the hope of book sales for income, I was astonished that she said "yes".

Since the journey began, we've revised the book, hired a type-setter, and hired a talented artist to do the dust-jacket (You can see one of the early drafts above). 

 The funds we raise here will do a variety of things, including: pay for the dust jacket art, typesetting, author portrait (for dust-jacket), graphic design for promotional images, licensing, copyright fees, Author event, airfare from Denmark to Austin for book launch, and most of all: printing the book!

We're going to press the day after Thanksgiving, and the book will hit bookstore shelves, and Amazon, before Christmas.

EVERYONE who contributes, whether one-dollar or five-hundred, will see their name printed in the book-- I'll have a demo of what this will look like soon!!!

Faust for a new generation.

 "Yes to the Barcode" is our ad/awareness campaign-- the barcode is just the book's isbn, but I loved the idea of playing on the notion of the Mark of the Beast from the book of Revelation. So provocative! This novel is Faust for a new generation--it pushes boundaries, addresses big ideas, and demonstrates a world that is foreign, yet tantalizingly fascinating to many of us.

Say yes!

Risks and challenges

Publishing a book is a big process, and it works because of the creative collaboration of many individuals. So far, we've been really lucky. We're making it work!

There's trademark & copyright licensing stuff we have to do (for the book itself, and permissions for use of copyrighted material), and a boat-load of other details we're working out as we go along.

It's crunch time! The book will be published. You can be a part of it.
