Publish the Archangel X Trilogy
The funding collected will be utilized to simultaneously publish all three volumes of the Archangel X Trilogy, the continuing saga begun in the Darkside Trilogy.
The Darkside Trilogy tells the tale of what happens in the United States when it is discovered that African Americans have been secretly living on the backside of the moon since before Neil Armstrong arrived.
These funding from this GoFundMe appeal will pay for the cost of two rounds of editing for all three volumes, book cover art, administrative costs in filing for copyrights, interior layout work, new author photo (damn this gray) and shipping of premiums to those who contribute to this publishing campaign. Each person who contributes to the campaign will have their name appear on an acknowledgement page in each of the three volumes -- unless otherwise indicated.
The last volume of the trilogy is nearly completed. As soon as it is finished, then editing of the three volumes will begin.
Being able to complete the trilogy, publish, and place it on sale as soon as possible in calendar 2018 is going to allow the entire work to be nominated for Hugo and Nebula Science Fiction Awards for 2018.
Once the campaign goal is reached, and the trilogy is published, the top five contributors will received inscribed copies of the complete trilogy. The next ten contributors will receive the entire trilogy in electronic format along with autographed cover art suitable for framing. The rest of the contributors will receive autographed cover art, suitable for framing.
Everyone who helps get this trilogy to print will have my sincerest and eternal thanks for your assistance in making extending my creative universe come true!
The last major writing task for the completed trilogy is naming all the chapters in the three volumes. The rest is the nuts and bolts of copy editing, artwork, and preliminary marketing.
Thanks to all who have contributed so far, your help is deeply appreciated.
Other milestones, I have had another inquiry about optioning the first trilogy in the Darkside Universe for the big or small screen, movie or mini series.
If The Darkside Trilogy is adapted, chances are Archangel-X will most likely follow.
Fingers crossed, I want to thank everyone who helps me get this continuation of Darkside published!
Thank you, in advance...
Now, time for my final go-through before I turn them over to the editor.
Again, thanks to those who have supported the publication of this trilogy, I hope more will see their way to lend their support as well.
