IWSG – Kickstarter

IWSG badgeI’ve been neglecting this the last few months and I apologize. I’ve been very busy with my Kickstarter campaign. I am doing everything I can for that to be successful, but out of 15 days since my Kickstarter started, I have $139. Assuming I need $50 a day in order to meet my goal, I am $561 behind.

I am really scared I won’t make my goal. I hate it because I am working so hard on it, and I felt that the amount was so small. Perhaps I should have set it for releasing 1 book rather than 5, but even then, I wouldn’t even be close.

This is very important to me and all I want is the chance to be an author and earning income so I can try to have a somewhat normal life. I will still try to release books if I fail and I’ve made good connections with other writers and bloggers. I am happy for the experience of it, and I continue to work hard because I have a little bit of hope that some miracle will come around and give me a chance for my dream.

Please check out my Kickstarter and share it on your favorite social media site.

Kickstarter Update — Daygar Legacy Titles + Supplements

daygar legacy coming soonNot exactly big news, but important none-the-less. I have mapped out the names of my first five novels. These are subject to change, but help me know the direction I am going and makes it a bit more real. This whole thing is real for me, but with writing, things can always become more real when you are first starting out.

I won’t be listing what they are about, as these novels will be between 30 – 100 pages, and won’t have a lot of lot of description that wouldn’t ruin the story for you. However, based on some of the titles, you will be able to gleam some story off of it.

Guest Blog: How are my Vampires Different on David Lee Summer site

intellectual selfie png colourFor the next two months, I will be doing a series of guest blog posts to help market my Kickstarter campaign. The first post is featured on David Lee Summer’s site, talking about the vampires of the Daygar Legacy series. These days everyone has a vampire tale that is either immediately loved or hated simply because it is a Vampire tale. My goal is to try to do something different that still feels familiar. Go check out the article.

Interview – David Lee Summers

DLS-Author-Photo-pngI had the privilege to interview David Lee Summers. I met him at Phoenix Comicon and asked for his help in promoting my Kickstarter and since then have emailed each other several times. He is one of many writers I respect and look up to, hoping to one day match his level of success.

David has broke the mold of traditional writers by writing outside his genre and being quite successful at it. He is known for his Vampire tales and is currently doing a Steampunk western-era story. Join me in welcoming David and hearing the great advice he has to offer.
