HELP A SISTER OUT?
Hey all! Medieval Romances is graciously allowing me to use this forum to tell you about a unique Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign I’ve created titled, “The White Wolf Prophecy Project.”
Simply put, I want to incorporate beautiful and vivid illustrations like this into my full-length epic medieval action-adventure romance novel, and thus create a sort of hybrid version of a graphic novel. It is my vision and goal to visually bring to life the character and action in the story for the enhanced entertainment and enjoyment of the reader.
And to that purpose I want to commission the talented young artist who created the stunning cover art above which I commissioned for book two in The White Wolf Prophecy series called, “The Wolf and The Lily.”
All the details about the campaign, the artist, me, and the book series can be found at Kickstarter.com by its project title or by clicking on this link:
(You will also see a short video on there which is meant to be amusing yet at the same time show you one reason why I created this project campaign.)
In addition, expanded chapter excerpts and other material dealing with this two-book series can be explored at www.readexcerpts.com to give potential backers a good feel for the book’s storylines and its characters.
Crowd-funding sites like Kickstarter are a valuable tool for artists in all fields—but at the same time, it is hard to grab the attention of potential backers because there are literally hundreds of worthy projects to support. “The White Wolf Prophecy Project” has only been up about a week or so and it has already rapidly sunk beneath the waves of new daily projects. And, unfortunately, I don’t have a huge network of family and friends to tap into for funding support…which is why I am hoping for the generosity of those strangers reading this blog who might find merit in my project…and even spread the word about it through email, Twitter, Facebook, etc.
So that is why I have come to you for help in reaching my minimum goal amount. Even a pledge of $5.00 is appreciated, and no monies are collected unless the minimum goal amount is reached by the time the project period ends on June 8.
Please take a few minutes when you can find time to check out the links posted in this message to explore the project, watch the video, and perhaps even read some of the chapter excerpts. (Note: some new bonus Rewards will be added soon for those who contribute $100 or more.)
Help this “sistah” out…and I will do my best to be there for you if and when you or someone you know also create a project for one of the primary crowd-funding sites. Just let me know! Thank you. P. J. Rainis ( aka author R. L. Whittaker, www.rlwhittaker.com)
