Enter a modern world full of magic...
In a world where magic is the lifeblood of society and the fantastic is just as accessible as modern technology, finding your soulmate should be as easy as flicking a wand, right? Even with the mass production of a luxury magical device called a Soul Tracker explicitly designed to assist hopeless romantics, the odds are still stifling.
Add to this that one's level of magic is genetically set, and Margerie Krietz's hopes of ever meeting her soul mate are slim to none. Margerie's magic aptitude test scores are abysmal, and as the potential heiress of a rather large and influential magic device business, she finds herself at risk of losing her birthright.
Desperate to boost her grades her senior year, Margerie reaches out to her professor for help -- but when her tutor turns out to be the handsome heir to a competing conglomerate, it becomes apparent that her path to success is more convoluted than ever.
What does the cover look like?
How do I know if I'll like the book?
If you're not sold by the blurb, I also have a preview of the rough draft of chapter one here. This chapter will likely change a bit after professional editing and proofreading, but it'll give you an idea of what you're in for and a taste of the story, which is around 27,000 words in length right now.
What is the Kickstarter Funding?
The final costs to bring this novella to life. With your support, I will be able to cover the editing and printing costs for an approx. 100 book run. Professional editing: Approximately $225 (I've proofread my own work, but having a bit of polish from a professional is always a good idea, and an experienced editor is priceless!) Printing & Production Costs for an approx. 100 book run Total estimated cost: $465. The remaining funds will be used to offset book shipping costs, Kickstarter’s processing fee, and taxes related to the project.
If we reach $750, that will activate a stretch-goal art book companion that will be added to the artist's circle and author's circle reward tiers. (A digital version will be available for any other reward tiers.)
If we reach $1000+, I will shower all of you lovely supporters in gold. Well, sort of-- in addition to the gold embossed bookmarks, all KS edition copies of the book will be upgraded with gold foil, making an exclusive and exquisite edition for backers.
Risks and challenges
The novella is written, and the cover's designed-- my biggest concern will be launching on time, since I'll be in the final stages of editing as this Kickstarter goes live. Sometimes there are editorial delays and things such as formatting takes longer than expected... but the finish line is so close!!!
I'll definitely keep you posted on the book's progress!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
