About


"While White Men Sleep," is part one in a three part series.  The next book in the series, "While Civilians Sleep," is half-written and I will publish it in late 2020.  I will publish the final book, "While the World Sleeps," in 2021.     

Want to read the first three chapters of "While White Men Sleep?"  Click here for the .pdf.  Ready to support my project?  Check out the sidebar to your right.   I'm grateful for your help!   

"While White Men Sleep" is written by Alderin Ordell.  It is his third novel. His other two novels are "The Ghosts of Stonewall" and "Forever Me."  Alderin also blogs regularly on his website: http://www.alderinwrites.com/ 

 Alderin lives Portland, Oregon with his family.   Alderin grew up in a small-minded small town and every day he works hard to outgrow those roots. 

 I am looking to raise $1000 to cover the formatting and ebook publishing costs for "While White Men Sleep."  I've already spent over $3500 of my own money on this project so you can tell that I am very invested in it.  I just need a little help to get over the final financial hurdle.  Thanks for your time!      

I have set up several levels where you can show your support.  You can purchase the e-book in advance, you can purchase the hard cover in advance, you can purchase a deluxe ebook or hardcover that comes with cool swag including a bookmark and t-shirt!  You can even become a premium sponsor and get a character named after you in the second novel in this series titled, "While Civilians Sleep."  

"While White Men Sleep" is a labor of love and Alderin is almost there!  Alderin plans to publish the e-book in June and the paperback by November and he is also already busy writing, "While Civilians Sleep."

Please, help Alderin get "While White Men Sleep," published!

Risks and challenges

There aren't any risks in backing my project. If I don't raise the money to publish this novel through Kickstarter, I will raise it some other way. I have been working on this novel for three years and one way or another it will get done. However, I would really appreciate your support! This also gives you the opportunity to get an advanced copy and swag that the general public will not be able to get. So, please, help me out. Thank you so much!

The name you choose has to have author's approval first! I'm open to most ideas but the name can't be silly, derogatory, offensive, etc.
