Stark- The Podcast Episode 3

And there you have it, folks! Stark is finished.

Just a quick three episodes that I hope you liked. I had released these, even though I hadn’t planned to, in order to drum up interest in the Kickstarter campaign for Rash. But, unfortunately with less than 24 hours left, I don’t think Rash will be funded.

What does this mean? Honestly, I don’t know. I doubt I’ll let the series die, but if I can’t get crowdfunding then it will be a good couple years before I’ll be able to afford to publish it. Thems the breaks.

I’ll be writing a blog post about the process, from launch to failure, soon. That will have a few more thoughts on teh subject.

Until then please enjoy the last episode of Stark!

Stark- The Podcast Episode 3- The End

Stark- The Podcast

Hey, Y’all!

Here is my latest podcast project, Stark. Stark is actually the audio version of my Kickstarter backed Stark- An Illustrated Novella. Stark is for ereaders only and takes advantage of the new tech like the Kindle Fire, iPad and Nook Color that can show full color illustrations within ebooks. The project was fully funded and released earlier in the year.

But, now it is time for the sequel to Stark, Rash. I have a Kickstarter campaign up here Rash- An Illustrated Novella Go check it out and throw a couple dollars its way. There are some cool rewards. I know you may be thinking that why should you back it if it will be released as a free podcast at some point? Well, that’s because it won’t. If this project doesn’t get backed then it will die on the vine. Unfortunately, I do not have time/resources to chase the dead (I will chase and kill the undead, but that’s a different story). Back Rash so that this series can continue and not just be a pet project sitting on my hard drive.

We have until August 2nd, people! Back Rash and get your reward!

Thank you and I hope you enjoy Stark.

Cheers!

Where The Party At?

No Friday Night Drabble Party? Not tonight!

It’s Friday the 13th so I’m going to totally mess with your schedule! MESS WITH IT!

Instead of the Party I want to talk about Rash. No, not a rash, but Rash- An Illustrated Novella. This is my latest Kickstarter campaign and it can be found here Rash- An Illustrated Novella

This is the sequel to Stark- An Illustrated Novella (available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble). The Stark campaign was a great success and I am hoping Rash will be too.

And that’s where I need your help. Since Rash is a Kickstarter campaign it has to be fully funded or all funds are lost. One dollar short and it’s game over. I really love this series (there will be a third) and would hate for it to die. And that’s a simple fact: if it doesn’t get funded then it doesn’t get printed. Not being a full time writer, my funds are extremely limited when it comes to publishing. Funds I do have set aside for editing, cover, etc will be going to Metal and Ash, the third book in the Apex Trilogy. That is numero uno on the publishing list.

Why should you back Rash? (I said back rash) What I am trying to create here is more than just an illustrated novella. I am really hoping this style takes off so more writers and artists can work together. An illustrated novella gives the writer a chance to use their full prose and the artist a chance to illustrate a story without having to create an entire graphic novel or comic book. If I can make this series a success then it benefits all! (I’m a giver that way)

So do your part to help shape the future of literature and art. Go back Rash- An Illustrated Novella right now. For just $5 you can feed a hungry writer and starving artist.

Cheers!
