About

Introduction

Up and coming African author Nos Jondi joins the Silver Empire team with his amazing science-fantasy space marine trilogy, SANCTUM! Enjoy a cat-and-mouse game spanning the galactic empire, featuring genetically engineered werewolves and vampires in space!

Blood and Flesh Required.

Rising Star Captain Janet Ruvuma doesn’t know failure. 

Except in capturing Mavurama, the leader of a group of rogue, genetically engineered ex-marines. Every time she springs the trap, he slips through her fingers. Five years of pursuit and still he eludes her. The Emperor is out of patience. Ruvuma has to catch him, dead or alive, or she will taste defeat for the first time.

Mavurama desires only peace and quiet. The Emperor made him and his men what they are. He fought for the Emperor. He won the war for the Emperor. Now he wants to retire. But the Empire won’t allow it, and Mavurama will do whatever it takes to claim his peace. Even escape beyond the edge of the known galaxy.

Ruvuma and Mavurama play a cat and mouse game that stretches across the universe. But Mavurama can’t hide forever. He needs blood, and lots of it, to take with him on his trip into the unknown. Ruvuma can’t let him go. She’ll bring the fury of the empire to bear on him and his soldiers before she lets him disappear.

African Author Nos Jondi bursts onto the speculative fiction scene with his tale of mythic creatures in space, full of colorful characters and wild distant worlds that occupy the furthest reaches of space.

Will Ruvuma conquer her greatest enemy? Or will Mavurama manage to take the suicidal leap into the Dead Space of the universe first? Read BLOOD BROTHERS today to find out!

What you get

You'll get some of the best new military sci-fi novels around. These books  are available  in hardcover, paperback, and ebook formats for your  convenience.

The ebook edition of Blood Brothers is  already complete, and is available for IMMEDIATE access by all backers at the e-book level or higher.  Print editions require some extra cover work, costs to be covered by  this crowdfunding campaign.

The rest of the series is first draft complete, but requires final editing and cover work for both ebook and print versions. We expect all books to ship by October.


Signed books

While we normally offer our books signed at no extra charge, Mr. Jondi resides in Malawi, Africa. Due to the round trip shipping costs required in this case, signed books are available this time around, but at a significant price premium. We apologize for the inconvenience - we don't like it any more than you do. Unfortunately, the Earth is still a big place.

What we need

We're raising money to cover the costs of cover art, printing books, promotional artwork, and to support Mr. Jondi, his wife, and his new twin babies as he finishes these novels and more.


What your pledges support

Your pledges support getting us those covers and promotional artwork, they'll help us promote the books, and - most of all - Mr. Jondi will get paid at his typical royalty rates, which will help ensure more wonderful novels!

About Silver Empire

My wife Morgon and I founded Silver Empire in 2014 to publish the best in up and coming science fiction and fantasy fiction. Since then, our umbrella has grown to include 15  different authors publishing with us. We published 18 novels in 2018, and have nearly 50 novels on the schedule for 2019. We're located in north Alabama, and we're running  this crowd funding campaign because Mr. Jondi's novels are fantastic and deserve to be read!

Risks and challenges

Both of the books listed here are manuscript-complete. All that is required to complete them is cover work and layout. Although there is always risk with any crowdfunding project, Silver Empire has released more than 25 books, and is easily able to complete this work with appropriate funding. Additionally, we have successfully completed and fulfilled two previous Kickstarter projects, and have three others that are being completed - several that are very nearly finished.
In full honesty, however, we have discovered from past Kickstarters that we need a little more time than we had originally been budgeting. That's why we've adjusted for that on this campaign.
