True Colors and The Wrath of Brotherhood Ordering

I'm proud to announce the imminent release of the second book of my award-winning Brethren of the Spanish Main series, TRUE COLORS! 

It has been a long time coming as most of you know.  I beg patience while the last changes are made and the design process commences.

As you can see, I've already started with a commissioned image for the book cover, and great design layout.  But printing hardcovers costs money.  Funds generated here will help recover the design costs, pay for the print run, and generate marketing materials for displays and events.  I set a lofty goal, but supporters will receive the goods listed on this campaign whether that goal is met or not (which is why I'm using GoFundMe).  You know I'll be doing this either way, but if you support this project now, you'll get a good price, first dibs, and other potential bundled deals with other products.

Printing alone takes 5 weeks after all the files are done and proofed.  I'm getting more of a top-notch line edit than I anticipated, and keep in mind that this book is currently about 30% longer than The Wrath of Brotherhood.  Not only will you get a great product, but you can't beat the pricing offered here.

My intention is to offer shipping through this program, but The Source Comics and Games in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota has offered to run an event for me when the book finally comes out.  If you prefer it at that time, you can come by the event and pick up the copy you order here, or we can arrange other in-person delivery if you feel like saving me the shipping cost.

I'm not sending out eBooks through this campaign--those will be available through the relevant eBook distributors (Kindle, Nook, etc) at the time of release.

I'm mostly targeting this to my existing fans and contacts, so I'm not doing a video or glitzy campaign, but if you're unfamiliar with my work, I suggest checking out The Wrath of Brotherhood on Amazon, or visiting my website at www.ozgurksahin.com.  There are several interviews recorded there under "Buried Treasures," as well as links to all my book and fan sites.
