African American Female Superhero Launch

Funding Period 
August 10, 2019  - April 20, 2020


I can hardly wait to bring an exciting trilogy of science fiction novels to readers.

After having completed two in the series, the third book is on its way. The series features an African American, female superhero who feels everything, sees what others cannot, and hears the voices of the earth. The character diversifies science fiction as well as creates strong force in Afro futurism.

My mission is to introduce the next, Black female Superhero by using an entertaining trilogy as a platform. 

With supernatural understanding she embraces her role as a warrior for the greater good. Among her weapons are knowledge and timeless wisdom. Her supernatural powers include the ability to time travel, and control physical motion.

I am raising money so that I can recognize my backers with unique, valuable rewards that represents the book series. But I am also generating revenue to employ a first-class, marketing, production, publicity campaign, and publishing team to ensure that the series receives the tools it needs to succeed. 


There is also a budget for book launch and tour, the studio time and production of the literary soundtrack with special sound effects.
 
 
There are several other agencies that need to be secured such as graphic artist, web designer, publicist, finance officer that will keep the production on task. I am looking forward to delivering on one of a kind, rewards and perks. .
