Whiteout Novel

Hello there! for the past three years I've been working on a novel that I consider to be my homage to 80s big action-adventure films and the general genre of monster hunting. Whiteout is the story of Nick Ventner, a drunk who makes his living killing creatures that most people don't think exist. The novel follows him and his apprentice James as they pursue their most dangerous foe to date, a yeti. 

When I first started this novel it was as a project for the November Write a Novel Month (NanoWriMo) competition. The challenge was to write a 50,000 word book in 30 days. The story I found in writing Whiteout was so personally exciting to me that I finished in 24 days. 

My goal for Whiteout was to  write a big adventure novel in the vein of Indiana Jones that could help transport myself and others to a world not-so-different from our own, but one where myth and legend come to life. In that regard, I believe I have succeeded. Working on Whiteout had been one of my greatest joys as a writer, and I'm immensely proud of the finished project that Aberrant Literature and I have created.

Speaking of Abberant Literature, they've taken a huge risk in staking so much on a first-time author. Jason Peters, the head of Aberrant Literature has worked with me every step of the way and not only been an amazing collaborator, but a great friend. Working with Aberrant has been the best creative experience I could have hoped for. They truly care about telling unique stories and supporting their authors.

Every penny we raise in this crowdfunding effort will go towards getting Whiteout and Aberrant's names out there. Both of us are new to the business and for this, our first big effort, any amount of help is going to go a long way. Whether it's $10 or $100, just showing your support will help us gain brand awareness, and get this book into stores everywhere.
