Gather around, my friends.
Some of you have followed me through four books, and have already joined in our amazing journey on the final campaign. You can read through the rest of this announcement, or fly low for awhile and relax.
Some of you are waiting, or are unable to pledge because of financial reasons, or perhaps have discovered that your heart doesn't lie in the Silver Isles. I understand all of those things! I thank you for helping me to launch the books, and I wish you the best of fair winds. You're always welcome. If you can't pledge, please consider telling one friend, in person, about the books. Someone you know will love them.
Now . . . If you just haven't pledged yet because . . . (?) I hope that you will before the end of the campaign. Because it's going to be amazing.
If you love the stories, if you've watched Shard grow from an uncertain initiate warrior into who he is today, as I grew from an uncertain debut author into who I am today, I urge you to open your wings and travel the last stretch of open sea with us. I have done my absolute best to build a final campaign that is exciting, flexible, and full of fun.
If you've always wanted a Shard plushie, we have the Shard Clone Army.
We have the final cover art from Jennifer Miller.
We have Sculptures.
We have Gryfon pins.
We have, of course, the chance to complete your first edition collection, signed by Yours Truly.
If you're reading this, you were to first to answer the call.
You were the first to take a chance on me. I will always be grateful, you will always be honored members of the Gryfon Pride. I have such plans for the Silver Isles, for new books, new daring gryfon heroes, the graphic novel, and other top secret Projects. So I hope that you'll continue on with me. Follow on Facebook, Twitter, my shiny new website, and now . . .
. . . the final campaign.
I hope you'll fly with me one last time.
