This has been an exciting journey, and I’m thrilled at last to share this story with the world. If you enjoy the novel, please consider leaving a review on Amazon, which helps immensely in increasing the book’s visibility!
The Kickstarter campaign for my novel Turn Over the Moon concluded this morning, with a total of $2,187 raised, twice our original goal! Thank you to everyone who contributed. I’m incredibly grateful to see this level of support.
Because we reached the $2,000 stretch goal, all the backers will be listed in the book. I have to make the changes to the files, and then the novel will be ready for its publishing debut. All backers will receive their copies and other rewards during November. We’ll keep everyone up to date.
Now that we’ve hit our first funding goal for in the Kickstarter for Turn Over the Moon, I can announce our first stretch goal: If we reach $1,500, backers will receive a free novella sequel to the novel next year, before it becomes available to the public.
This novella, which I’m currently developing, is part of the future publishing strategy for Ahn-Tarqa. The next novel I have planned doesn’t feature Belde or any of the other characters from Turn Over the Moon; it takes place on the other side of the continent in Najael (see the map above) and begins a parallel series to “The Saga of the Sorrowless” called “The Sorrow War.” The novella will let readers check in with Belde and her adventures during the gap between the novels in The Saga of the Sorrowless.
I can’t share anything more at this point except that the first Sorrow War novel is also underway with its story extensively planned out. I wish I could tell you the title of the novel and the novella, but final titles tend to come late in writing for me. (Turn Over the Moon had the working title of “Belde Novel” during the first draft.)
I’m thrilled to announce that the Kickstarter campaign for Turn Over the Moon has reached its initial funding goal of $1,000—after only seven days! This is better than I could’ve hoped for, and I’m thankful to all of our backers for supporting us and our efforts to get my novel to the widest audience.
The Kickstarter will now receive funding on October 31 when the campaign ends, but we’re not done yet. Tomorrow, we’ll announce exciting new rewards as we aim toward reaching our stretch goals. The additional money we raise will go toward promotion for the book after it’s published.
Thanks again to our backers, and please keep spreading the word.
