Dear Friends, Family, and those who've stumbled to my site:

I ask your help to donate to an idea that has been in development for the past several years.  My project is at the point where the private process must go public.  

The goal of my kickstarter is two-fold: one resulting in an immediate hard copy of the book Plain of Ghosts, and the other is funding the creation of a book company Moon at Zenith Books.  The first goal is the main focus of this kickstarter.  

Plain of Ghosts is a 8,376 word narrative developed over the past 6 years.  Although concise, Plain of Ghosts is deceptively complex where the language is manipulated to bend meaning, at times sentence by sentence, to hide or reveal context and to establish tone and mood. I now need your help take this book beyond what I am capable of.  Built into the base pledge is:

  • a copy of the book
  • helping to cover the cost of ISBN and copyright fees
  • helping to pay for back stock of copies that will be sent to newspapers/magazines and put into small bookstores to gain future awareness
  • the fees necessary to rent a space for a release party in September

Once the book's projected costs are covered, all additional pledge money will go into the account for Moon at Zenith Books.  This will help upkeep the website and be purposed for marketing and distribution for releasing future projects as well as research and development for building the book company and its featured persons.  Moon at Zenith Books goal is to help those who need support in developing their vision. 

By funding this kickstarter, you offer support to a cause whose aim is help publish ideas that would normally be overlooked by other book companies.

Please review the Moon at Zenith's website linked under the "About me" page to read a fuller description of the book and the company and to hear the preview of Big Ear Tape's sound for Plain of Ghosts.

Thank you for your pledge,

Casey Emmet Buckles

Risks and challenges

This book is completed and awaiting the funds to be printed and shipped.

There may be some explicit scenes people may be uncomfortable with.

Time may be an issue because I am relying on other's to finalize the project. Be aware that shipping time may have to be pushed back because of outside parties, but do not worry, the book, posters, and tapes will be ready for your enjoyment.
