Sequel to Viscountess, a Novel by Taversia.
As the heroine "Bern" weaves between two separate worlds, she must face the injustices of systemic oppression and abuse in its evilest forms, ensuring her place among the Castle in the Sky.
There are many words which best describe Bern - enduring, commanding, even *dominating*—all traits inherent to her genetic (perhaps, astrological) makeup. It is through this design she is able to harness the power of a magical key, with hope of fulfilling her destiny delivering the earth of its scourge... but first, she must escape the confines of her family's insane asylum.
Primary Project Goal:
The publishing and distribution of Countess, sequel to Viscountess - a novel by Model, Author, and Artist, Taversia - to be published by Holon, a next-generation Publishing Company and creative collective. Our unique collaboration on this - and many of our publishing projects - enables us to minimize costs and maximize efficiency.
Secondary Project Goals: We're here to make a creative collective of awesome artists, writers, dancers, actors, scholars, and entrepreneurs - like you.
At the time these rewards are being released, and we are all celebrating the new novel Countess, Holon will be celebrating three years in business. We would like to invite all of you to a special event in Bloomington, Indiana, at the release of this outstanding book, if this project's funding is successful.
You're not simply buying a book - you're participating in something much larger. Be a part of a growing creative community.
Stretch Goals: $4,000 +
Completion of Viscountess + Countess "Short Movie" book trailers.
$4,500 + Help Taversia finance her costume costs for the cover of the third book!
$5,000 + Help fund extended promotions and distribution of Countess, Viscountess - as well as the publication of the third book.
We will also make hardcover editions of both Viscountess and Countess!!!
Risks and challenges
Shipping has always been a pain in our butt when working with limited budgets - we don't anticipate any problems, but we know that shipping costs will impact the amount of money we will be able to invest in not only the stretch goals, but also in the promotions and advertising of Countess.
For Taversia's sake - we hope that we can break into our stretch goals. The project budget here primarily covers the cost of creating an outstanding product. We will promote that product with the best of our abilities, but we will need to come up with additional funding to actually advertise and distribute that product properly, in the way that a traditional publisher might. Help us break those goals, so that we may make the legacy of this series as epic as possible.
