About

Hello!!

Thank you so much for reading this!  For as long as I can remember, I've dreamed about writing a Science Fiction novel. Throughout my life I've had a lot of different jobs. My first paying job was as a worm picker at a worm farm (No fooling! You can look it up, they exist!) I've been a busboy, a waiter, general manager, and a restaurant owner. A library manager and an X-ray Tech, but through it all, I still thought about being a writer. In 2009, I was in a very serious accident and broke my back and neck. The doctor told me that I should have been paralyzed or killed. I decided I needed to DO and not just dream. So now I've finished my book and I would really appreciate your help in making it a reality and help me publish it! Thank you in advance for anything you can do!!

I have always been intrigued by the Loch Ness Monster and how the same creature could be seen for hundreds of years.  I am also a huge Sci-Fi fan (Doctor Who, Star Trek, Star Wars, Red Dwarf, etc.), so when I finally determined to write my book, I wanted to combine my favorite elements.  I spent a lot of time researching the dates and timelines for my story, also the locations.  Most of what I mention in my story is factual; battles, towns, events, ships, locations, etc.  Some of my characters are named after friends and family as thank you's for putting up with me all of these years.  

So, what does an eighteenth-century Scotsman, two opposing alien races, three countries, and four centuries have in common with the Loch Ness Monster?  Pledge your support, read my book, and find out!!!

Thank you!

Slainte Mhath,

Keith D. Graham

Risks and challenges

So the only risk I can see to my project, is not being funded. Once it is, I will get my book printed, the rewards will be mailed out as quickly as I can, and then hopefully I'll sell a few copies!

Now in the chance that my book becomes a New York Times bestseller, I would like Andrew Lincoln from The Walking Dead to play the lead role in the Ron Howard produced blockbuster movie!! :-)
(Hey! I'm allowed to dream, right??)

    Role in my movie!!

    OK this might be crazy, but, my ultimate dream is that the book sells big time and gets picked up for a movie deal! If that happens, I'm going to push hard to get Andrew Lincoln from The Walking Dead to star in the movie. If one person pledges the entire $8000.00 and funds my project, I will get you a small part in my movie, an autographed script from all of the stars in the movie, and introduce you to them! NOW!!! Major Disclaimer!! There is no guarantee that my book will be a movie, no guarantee that I will work with Andrew Lincoln, and no guarantee that I will get you a part in this or any movie, or be in a position to introduce you to Andrew Lincoln (or any celebrity for that matter.) The only guarantee I can truly give you is that you would have spent $8000.00 on a wild chance and that you would have made my dream of publishing my book come true. Sounds like a great deal, right??

    P.S. You will also get an autographed book (or 2), the autographed poster, a HUGE mention!!
