About this project

The Lore of Algoron is a series of books based on a text based role playing game called Dark and Shattered Lands. There are many stories in the world of Algoron, these are three of them:

The Price of Honor is the story of a shamed Minotaur who must restore his families honor in the only way available to him, as a spy in the only unnamed house of the empire of Ganth.

The Price of Dignity follows the rise of Algoron's first goblin nation and it's revolt against their Dwarven masters and ultimately its arrival on the world stage.

The Price of Love is a favorite tale still told throughout Algoron about a copper dragon and his unusual ward, an orphaned elven girl.

The third book is still being written but will be completed by the end of the year. Next month, should we succeed in gathering our funding, we will go on an aggressive ad campaign to try and get these books in the houses and libraries of our readership. This will include Google and Facebook Ads, printed fliers/mailers, printed copies for book conventions, booth rentals for book/fantasy conventions and various other expenses associated with these.

I have not been able to raise this money on my own, so anything you can do to help me realize my dream will be extremely appreciated.

Risks and challenges

I am well into the third book now (1 and 2 are completed and in the editing process) and am confident it will be completed by the end of November, at which point my editor will get it and we can make the final changes at some point in December. However, as it is in life, I cannot know the future. Life has a way of waylaying the best made plans, so the risk is there of a delayed release date.
