The Obsidian Spindle Saga is live!
4 months ago – Fri, Jun 04, 2021 at 10:21:38 PM

Hi!

Just wanted to drop you a quick note and let you know that my new project, The Obsidian Spindle Saga is live on Kickstarter right now!

Kickstarter link

Fairy tales are real.

Rose Briar is a diabetic college student without insurance.

She’s been scraping by through a combination of maxing out credit cards and relying upon the kindness of strangers.

Unfortunately, she’s spent every dollar at her disposal. There’s no money left to buy her life-saving insulin.

Without her medication, Rose falls into a diabetic coma. She tumbles into a deep slumber and wakes up in a fantastical place called the Dream Realm, where fairy tales and legends of old are still very much alive.

She has one chance to wake up.

She must trek across the world, visit the most powerful object in the land, the Obsidian Spindle, and entreat with the fates; the only beings powerful enough to send her soul back to Earth.

But evil forces don’t want her to leave.

They will stop at nothing to capture her and make sure she never goes home again.

Now, with the help of her half-gorgon girlfriend and a mysterious red rider, Rose must race across the land fighting dragons, monsters, and the forces of the Wicked Witch, Nimue, in order to reach the Obsidian Spindle before her body dies on Earth and she’s trapped in the Dream Realm forever.

Will she be able to wake up? Can she survive? That is the genesis of the Obsidian Spindle Saga (TOSS), and the first book The Sleeping Beauty.

This is my most ambitious project ever, and represents the last three years of my creative effort. Every moment I wasn't working on The Godsverse Chronicles or Ichabod Jones was spent inside this universe.

For backing this series early, everybody who backs the campaign by Saturday night gets some amazing digital books, absolutely free, and included in your pledge.

All backers who pledge by Saturday (even for $1) get Lady Serra and the Draconian by Cat Banks, School for Dragons by Amy Wolf, Seeking the Salamander by Matt Harry and Stranger: Academy for Peculiars by Isadora Brown, absolutely free!

Kickstarter link

I am so super excited for this series. I spent the last three years building up the universe and writing these books. I can't wait to share it with you.

Hope to see you again behind the backer wall.

Just a couple days left on the Ichabod Jones volume 3 campaign
7 months ago – Tue, Mar 23, 2021 at 10:51:09 AM

Hi!

Just a quick reminder there's only a few days left on our current campaign for Ichabod Jones: Monster Hunter volume 3.

Kickstarter link

There are a ton of really cool things about this campaign. First, I've opened up being drawn into the book for ALL tiers as a $150 add-on, so if you are a digital backer you can get in on the getting drawn in action for the first time.

Additionally, we're sitting about $700 from unlocking our big goal, which is a book plate signed by Renzo and me, which would be the first time he's done a big signing of Ichabod, or any book, for international audiences.

Plus, we have original art available for the first time. Renzo is opening his archive of original penciled and inked pages, and we're making them available for the first time at the $100, $150, and $200 pledge levels, along with as an add-on for all backers.

I also found a treasure trove of old Gherkin Boy and How NOT to Invade Earth original art which I'm making available through a $25 or $15 add-on during the campaign. I didn't even know I still had this last November when I ran that campaign, so this is the first time I'm able to make them available to you.

Long story short, there are a ton of really cool reasons to get involved with the campaign right now in the final days...and I haven't even talked about the book yet :)

Hope to see you behind the backer wall.
