Three Weeks Left in The Flames of Shadam Khoreh Kickstarter

By  |  2 Comments

The Kickstarter for The Flames of Shadam Khoreh launched a little over a week ago. I ran it for only 28 days, and we’re now under the three week mark. 20 days remain, and I’m hoping we can meet several more stretch goals.

The first stretch goal, a free copy of my short story collection, Lest Our Passage Be Forgotten & Other Stories, has already been met, and we’re well on our way to the second. At $7,500 I’m going to commission three pieces of art for the trilogy, one to be included in each book. And if we reach $10,000, I’m going to commission three more (for a total of six). Those who have read The Winds of Khalakovo or The Straits of Galahesh will know that I broke up each book into two parts, so what I’ll do if we hit that third stretch goal is include one illustration for each “Part” in the three books.

In fact, I’m so confident we’ll reach the first artwork stretch goal, I’ve already started working with the artist on the first piece, this one an illustration of the dance between Nikandr and Atiana early on in The Winds of Khalakovo.

Also, as a small thank you to all of my backers, I’m continuing to give away my favorite recipes as part of the Kickstarter. When you join, you’ll get updates, each $1,000 the project reaches, with either a personal recipe or one of my favorites from other chefs.

I’m eager to see how the rest of the Kickstarter goes. Please, even if the project isn’t for you, I’d very much appreciate you spreading the word. Thanks so much.

    Congrats on how well the kickstarter is doing! I can’t wait to get my set of hardcovers for all three books.

    As one of the lucky few who got to review an advanced copy of Flames of Shadam Khoreh, I can honestly say people are in for a treat. It’s clearly the best of the three.

    If anyone’s interested, they can read my review of FLAMES on here:

    Looking forward to hitting the third stretch goal!

    And Brad, I do believe you are three recipes behind again. lol. Not a bad problem to have!
