The Sacrifice novel Kickstarter is now live! Even if you can’t donate right now, I would be forever grateful if you could share with friends and family. Don’t just share the link, but tell them WHY they should click it. This is my attempt to bring more diversity to literature. I just recently finished an author interview where I discussed the importance of diversity in literature, so i’ll link to that blog here once it’s published. If you have a blog or site that you would like to use to help spread the word, I have an official press release that I can send you!
Click here to view the campaign, and please let me tell you why Sacrifice is important.
Today I wanted to update you on the progress of the Sacrifice novel Kickstarter. I know last week was missing a character reveal, and I apologize for not delivering that as planned. I am still not quite satisfied with my concept art for the next character. I’ll spend the evening trying to tweak the digital portrait a bit so I can try to reveal that later this week. Did you miss my recent announcement about the Kickstarter? Don’t know what i’m talking about? Click here and let me tell you why this project is important.
Several people are asking when the Kickstarter will launch, and i’m glad so many people are anticipating the campaign! I’m currently on schedule for a September launch with either the 2nd or the 3rd as my launch date. I have a friend helping with my video for the campaign, and I am blown away by how amazing the intro looks! I can’t wait to share this with you!
Here are some random pieces of concept art that I created to show one of the books settings, as well as showcase the werewolves and mages from Sacrifice. Disclaimer: I am a digital art noob.
Part of Sacrifice takes place in NY’s Catskill Mountains.
Werewolves and mage from Sacrifice.
Thank you for your support, and make sure you check out my Facebook page for even more content on writing and the Sacrifice novel.
This week’s Sacrifice character reveal is Micah Morgan.
Micah had been Kat’s best friend for as long as she could remember, but he died in a tragic car accident almost four years ago. She struggled with the loss, and his name went unspoken—until he started haunting her dreams. Micah’s spirit became linked with a group of mages, and he communicates with Kat through her dreams to warn what the future holds if she can’t stop the supernatural attacks happening across the country.
This week’s Sacrifice character reveal introduces Cash. I love writing his dialogue, and he quickly became one of my favorite supporting characters. Everyone needs a gay best friend, especially the always troubled Katherine Reese.
Cash is a member of Kat’s prestigious Alpha team. He’s a tall, blonde haired, dreamy eyed, martial arts master who loves to watch Xena and sleep with men. He’s the youngest member of the team at only nineteen, but he is the stealth and recon expert. Kat describes Cash as a “white boy ninja” since he moves at an inhuman speed and makes no detectable noise while doing so. Cash hates firearms so when he needs more than just hand to hand combat, he chooses a blade or bow as his weapon.
This week’s Sacrifice character reveal includes art that I created myself. I’m not skilled at creating comic book concept art, so I decided to make digital concept portraits for some of the characters. This gives you an idea of how I picture the characters as I’m writing the story.
Cameron Ryan is the girlfriend that Katherine Reese isn’t supposed to have. She was born in Australia as a mix of Australian and Tibetan, but her parents died when she was just a baby. She was adopted by her uncle who lived in the States, and spent her whole life in New York unaware of the supernatural world. Cameron’s eyes are opened to mystical elements when she learns Kat is a meta-human and rogue werewolves are discovered in her neighborhood—leaving her world forever changed.
