Something is out there.
And the people live in constant fear.
But their biggest threat lies within their own village. Everyone and everything is dying, slowly and without hope of salvation.
In a world where almost nothing is truth and isolation is the purest form of self-deception, the possibility of hope exists only in the heart and mind of a young woman who chooses to follow an unknown path in order to save everyone she knows and loves. Before long, she discovers that her most vital beliefs are based on a deception that will rock the foundation of her entire people. To save them, she must learn to open her heart and sacrifice…everything.
You may think you have heard this story before, but be warned.
I write. Or, at least, I used to write.
Now I teach. And dream of the days when I had time to write.
Here I am, awaiting the cusp of a new day in my life, and there you are.
Yes, there you are. Yes, you. You with the confused look on your face.
This message is for your eyes only: I'm in the process of writing my upcoming debut novel entitled The First, a mythic fantasy story with a fast-paced, first-person narrative.
And when I say "upcoming," I mean just that. As of today, I have approximately 275 pages written. I have a plan, and I've already written a portion of the ending, so I know where I'm going with this. It's nearly done. I am posting a new chapter on my website for free every week until I get closer to releasing the book. The anticipated release is January 2014.
I need your help. I need you to become a part of my publishing team so that I can get this polished, published, and packaged, ready to be shipped to you and others like you. This first print run is crucial to the success of what I hope is at least a small legacy that I can leave.

Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge for this book is in getting the word out. I've already unlocked the door on that, setting up several social media outlets including: Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Google+, LinkedIn, and my own personal blog. My official website is constantly being updated and added to, and I stay consistent with my blog posts. I'm personally keeping all of these avenues updated and relevant. I will be contacting local media and bookstores in the near future. There are several sites online where I can purchase advertising, and I have those on hand if necessary. Every single person who shares information about my book with others is helping to spread the word and, hopefully, get people excited about my book.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
