About

Howdy from Colorado, 

The Soul of St. Ives  began in written form as a kindle book in 2014. Its second incarnation,  an audiobook, was released in 2018 with the voice talents of Linda Ives-Martin. 

I am Jonathan Christopher Martin-Ives,  and I welcome you to the adventures and journey of Layla St. Ives.  Layla is a lost soul stolen from her mother,  by a greedy man who known as a harvest of sorrow.  He is of a reality where souls are sold for profit and delicacy (yes, food). 

Layla is bought by a freedom fighter who wishes to put an end to the soul-trade.  She gives Layla the chance to avenge herself against Kaanal, scoundrel  who basically murdered her. 

Originally,  The Soul of St. Ives was meant to be a comic,  so now I would like to explore that possibility bringing you along with me.  😊

I have secured  artist,  Chad Blakely who I'm proud to say has done work for the 501st Legion  among other awesomeness. The bulk of what I'm asking for is payment for Chads talent.  The remainder will go towards  printing comics and to help with any shipping cost. 

At some point  I would love to make a movie version of The Soul of St. Ives,  but that of course is another story....  😉

Risks and challenges

My budget is pretty much bare-bones. My focus is on getting my artist taken care of, and bringing Layla's story to life through comics.

I have tried to allow enough time to meet all rewards. In most cases I intend exceed the posted reward times.
