Stretch Goal Achieved! Thank you! At $800, every donor will have access to a drm-free download of Corie Weaver's middle grade fantasy novel, Coyote’s Daughter. Keep the adventure going!

Stretch Goal Achieved! Thank you! At $900, every donor will also receive the ebook for Bear's Heart, the sequel to Coyote's Daughter.

When you can’t remember most of your life, you’d better be prepared for anything. The day a talking crow meets her on the way home from school, fourteen-year-old Rosinda is plunged into a forgotten world filled with startling revelations: magic ability flows in her veins, she’s most comfortable with a sword in her hand, and the responsibility for finding a missing prince rests solely with her.

 While dark forces hover in the background and four forgotten war gods from Earth’s past plot to reclaim long-lost power, Rosinda struggles with waves of slowly-returning memories as she searches for clues about her past and the true identity of her family; a search that takes her back and forth between two worlds. In a race against time to recover her memory, find the prince, and rescue her loved ones, Rosinda has only her friend Jerrell and an unusual trio of animals as companions. And as the gods prepare to bring her world to war, Rosinda is unaware that the shadow of betrayal lurks within one whom she trusts the most… 

The Seventh Crow is a 326 page middle grade fantasy adventure novel. 

Author Sherry D. Ramsey has created an amazing world, and we wanted to help bring it further to life with five illustrations of key scene throughout the text.  

This Kickstarter will help cover the fees for the illustrator as well as the additional costs of printing. The illustrations will be in both the paperbacks and the ebooks.

Sherry D. Ramsey is a speculative fiction writer, editor, publisher, creativity addict and self-confessed internet geek. When she's not writing, she makes jewelry, gardens, hones her creative procrastination skills on social media, and consumes far more coffee and chocolate than is likely good for her. 

 Her debut novel, One's Aspect to the Sun, was published by Tyche Books in late 2013 and was awarded the Book Publishers of Alberta "Book of the Year" Award for Speculative Fiction. The sequel, Dark Beneath the Moon, is due out from Tyche in 2015. Her other books include To Unimagined Shores—Collected Stories, and an urban fantasy/mystery novel, The Murder Prophet. With her partners at Third Person Press she has co-edited five anthologies of regional short fiction to date. Her short fiction and poetry have appeared in numerous publications and anthologies in North America and beyond. Every November she disappears into the strange realm of National Novel Writing Month and emerges gasping at the end, clutching something resembling a novel. 

 A member of the Writer’s Federation of Nova Scotia Writer’s Council, Sherry is also a past Vice-President and Secretary-Treasurer of SF Canada, Canada's national association for Speculative Fiction Professionals. 

 You can visit Sherry online at www.sherrydramsey.com, find her on Facebook, and follow her on Twitter @sdramsey.

Risks and challenges

The book is complete, the illustrations are complete - we're pretty much ready to go!

We've published a book through Kickstarter to completion before - we had a couple of minor delays with that project, but all backers received their books, and we've learned a few things to streamline the process.
