About this project

Eternal Rising is not your average vampiric tale tailored for high school teens! Written with the young adult/adult readers in mind it is quite the opposite. With so many twists and turns Book One in The Saga of Auriyanna Delmar  you on a journey into the modern world of the vampire while remaining deeply rooted in Ancient Egyptian mythology. Eternal Rising boasts an ever thickening plot laden with suspense, romance, an avant-garde take on Vampirism and if you are looking for a novel based on your typical vampire lore, look elsewhere. 

Eternal Rising will keep readers on edge until the very last page only to leave them wanting more!

On September 28th, 2012 I restarted a journey I had embarked on four years ago. This journey was one I was always truly passionate about seeing through but my I let my busy schedule get in the way. That was then however and this is now! Moving on from the first two chapters I had already written at that time, the first book quickly began to take form and it was not long that I found my self staring at a 120,000 word manuscript. I am beyond elated to see that I have a completed novel on my hands (my first) and so much so that the push to move forward is undeniable (I have already started book two). Regardless of my drive to keep writing, I need to get Eternal Rising out there first! So now comes the most challenging and expensive part of editing, re-editing and publishing my masterpiece. The 1500  followers I have on Facebook, many friends and family are waiting with baited breath but this book wasn't just written for them but for anyone who enjoys the Vampire Genre around the world! My ultimate goal is to see this first book in print by March 2013, at least Print On Demand through my website and on eBook. The bookstore shelves are the ultimate goal. I can't do this without your support however so help me get the ball rolling and back my publishing project today!

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you already pledged the $30 amount (or plan to) with the signed, paperback copy of Eternal Rising you will also receive the exclusive teaser you won't see anywhere else, from book two (yet to be named as the title is no longer going to be Eternal Odyssey)! Someone already pledged it and I wanted to add that but cannot! If you have any questions please send me a message. Thanks!

Risks and challenges

Publishing can not only be expensive but a daunting task! There is so much to the process from PR to agents, editing/re-editing, to getting ISBN Numbers, selling on Amazon.com, getting the book in stores in the United States and having it translated for distribution in different countries around the world. The editing process alone can take longer than expected but most of the obstacles that I would indeed face have to do with funding. With people backing this project that will definitely make everything fall into place more smoothly!

Being the determined and hardworking individual that I am, there is nothing that I cannot accomplish. I will get it done. I face obstacles head on and with my "never give up" attitude so I can assure you that this book is coming out once the funding is in. My determination and passion for this novel series drives me and the release of Book One: Eternal Rising!

One big obstacle I foresee would be reaching my publishing date. Originally I wanted to publish March 1st, 2013 but after the funding gets in it takes up to 14 days to get it and editing can take 16-22 days. My target date is March 31st. I would like to offer Eternal Rising on eBook on Amazon.com as soon as possible and Print On Demand sites through my website www.CynthiaLee.org so that I can make Eternal Rising available to my supporters and new readers asap! I will still be working on submission to the Writer's Coffee Shop but at least it will be available while I wait to hear what they think! I will also be going to Bookstores and working on PR with the company who has just now put out my press release to the media.

At the end of the day, nothing is for certain and everything in the publishing world is a risk but it is one that I am physically, emotionally and financially willing to take because I believe in this novel and the series to follow it! I know that you won't be disappointed.
