About

Dark Princess: The Second Novel!

Project 2020-08-09 07:28:00 +1200

In 2002, I began writing a fictional story about people, culture, swords, ships and faith. It took 11 years before I was, thanks to my incredible family and friends, able to self-publish the novel "To Hold the Moon". After that 2013 release, and a truly awesome time of being able to share my fantastical vision with others, I began writing the follow-up story - entitled "Dark Princess" ...and its now ready to go! Now I want to again give friends and family a chance to share in that journey by supporting this novel.

In the days of the Empire, one man, the Captan Praed, led a brave crew across the unconquered Black Sea to the shadowy world of Mænon and he became the first to hold the moon. Now, he returns to find a crazed Emperor who will stop at nothing to see the Captan fall, an unjust war, and danger at every turn. Is Mænon the only safe haven for him and his renegade crew? Or must he travel into the greater beyond, unknowingly into the realm of the Dark Princess?

At 390-pages, the book and artwork are now complete and are going through a final quality check. The printing is ready to go and on October the 16th, we'll be ready to make the call. All we need now is you! Even by reading this you are supporting this work and I thank you for being awesome. You rule! especially you...

Ngā mihi!

With a day and half to go, we've hit our mark! That means that come 5pm on Monday the project to fund the Dark Princess novel, the sequel to 2013's To Hold the Moon, will go through successfully. A monstrous thank you to you all for your tautoko-support for this project - I am blown away!

I hope you have a great weekend and we'll talk on Monday no doubt!

Four Weeks To Go! We're On Target!

22/09/2020 at 8:47 PM

Kia Ora tātou!

We've got a smidge under four weeks left on this one and we're already off to a great start! Thanks immeasurably to the first seven supporters - I'm blown away! - and here's to many more!

If there's anyone you'd know who'd be interested in this story, post the link to the Pledge on your social media. Can we knock the target off? I think so!

Stay awesome y'all!

It Begins!!

04/09/2020 at 11:02 AM

And we're live...!

...and we're finally back to try and raise the funds to print book two of the Boy Prophet series: Dark Princess! After getting started earlier in the year, but having to delay due to that thing that's going around, we're ready to roll again.

And WE NEED YOU! If you're keen to be involved, we'd love to have your financial support in getting this book published. Pledge to get a copy or, if you don't have book one "To Hold the Moon", pledge a bit more to get both of them.

More updates to follow. Stay awesome!
