Dethroned is the first in a series of Fantasy adventure novels. This project is to gather some funding for marketing and production. After a lot of consideration I’ve decided to go through a self-publishing agency to retain my rights to the book. The funding people provide will primarily go toward marketing costs, things like reviews and advertisements. However some of it will go toward production cost, things like proper formatting of the book (since it’s just a word document at the moment) and a nice cover. I’ve decided to pay for a cover design simply because despite my best efforts in Photoshop I cannot create a professional looking image on my own. The novel itself is completed and just waiting on formatting and a cover to be put out into production.
The novel follows Analysse, a young woman who stumbles into another world she later finds out to be the world of her birth. Under the guidance of her strangely knowledgeable best friend she and her friends must now prepare to face a dark and powerful man that is actively seeking to destroy her. Aside from the challenges of living in a new and strange world she struggles to understand her role in these events. Why does this man want to see her dead? Why will her friend tell her so little about both of their pasts? What are these strange new powers she is developing and how can she hope to control them?
I’d love to go more in depth with my summary of the story but seeing as the rewards include a copy of it I’d like to maintain most of the twists and turns. However if you want to know a bit more before investing please feel free to email me, I may take up to a day to reply simply because of time zones as I am based in the UK. The rewards I’ve included are my first attempt at crowdfunding, if you have any rewards you’d like to see please let me know I would be more than happy to include them if I can. I did not include any shipping costs on the rewards because if I get funded I would like to take that cost on myself as an extra thank you for participating and funding my project. The shipping costs won’t be taken out of the funding money nor will you ever be asked for it, it’s something I will take out of my own pocket.
I think that just about sums up the project. However if you have any questions or concerns please, please contact me, I am more than happy to talk to anyone about the project. Thank you for considering funding me!
