Good evening to all! How is everyone? I have something a bit different for you all today, this blog is about a kickstarter campaign, a campaign that is close to my heart. It is about a fantasy author helping new author find their voice, and I am really excited about it!
Here is a short link for you to see the campaign
For those not in the know, Brian Rathbone is a best selling author of the World of Godsend series (it’s on my TBR LIST!). I have a lot admiration for him as he is self published, done really well for himself and is now expanding the Godsend universe!
I am a huge fan of kickstarter projects funding fictions projects, as you know I love fantasy literature. I have been involved in three projects so far : Blackguards from Ragnarok Publications, The Death of Dulgath by Michael J Sullivan and Champions Of Aetaltis. These were brilliant campaign and Brian’s looks much the same (+ it has Dragons).
The authors involved are as follows:
Brian Rathbone - Born and raised on a horse farm in southern New Jersey, Brian Rathbone never did quite fit in--still doesn't. If you need someone to take you on an adventure or to tell terrible dragon jokes, Brian is your man. He lives in the mountains of North Carolina with his wife and some very spoiled cats.
I follow Brian on Twitter and he is a great laugh and a real inspiration (questionable dragon jokes though!)
Morgen Rich - Morgen Rich grew up in the southwestern U.S., where the sky reminds humans just how small they really are. She lives mostly in Pennsylvania with her husband and two Great Pyrenees, Bianca and Tahoe. On occasion, she lives in Lincoln, England. Founder of Bookmite Press and a member of the Broad Universe board of directors, Morgen is an active member of the speculative fiction profession. In addition to Ascension, a YA fantasy novel set in co-writer Brian Rathbone's Godsland world, she's also the author of the adult epic science fantasy novels, Incorrigible (2013) and Discordant (2016), both set in her imaginative Shifting Worlds universe. Jack McCarthy - Jack McCarthy was born and raised in Salem, NJ and is a long-time resident of Cleveland, OH. His lifelong path to writing has included: dishwasher, video store clerk, taekwondo instructor, factory assembly worker, telemarketer, casual letter carrier, office temp, door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesman, phone psychic, cashier, gas station manager, flight attendant and software engineer. This combined skill set could belong only to one destined to write fantasy novels.
As you will see, the kickstarter is laid out really well and some excellently priced reward levels, he has a awesome team behind him as well! I would love to see this campaign fund and achieve the hardback release for the books, also the audio release could be funded! As you will the campaign is 60% funded, with 26 days to go, this should fund easily and then the stretch goals will be funded! Have a look and consider after all, magic and dragons are involved!
