The book centers around the Vanguard race. This race has dominated space for millions of years. They eventually help another race almost as old as they are evolve to a super power. This eventually leads to both sides going to war. The vanguard and the haronnen fight a brutal and long war that consumes all of known space. Once allies, these two duke it out for supremacy.
This story is important to me because when I was 11, I lost a good friend. His death caused me to become depressed and over the course of 10 years I had crawled into a dark place and wasn’t able to escape. I began creating this story a couple years after my friend died and I used it to escape this reality and enter a reality where I felt no pain. This story helped me get through some tough times and I am finally ready to let people know about it. I think it is a great story and I am dying to tell it. Currently, I am preparing to begin writing the book in the next couple weeks. I’ve spent a lot of time preparing back stories and bios on my blog as a way to help me organize. (www.RomesBlog.net). But, I need a lot of artwork to help finish the book once I complete it. I need concept designs, book cover design, and a few general designs to help bring the story to life.
What I’m looking for
I’m in need of cash to help fund my book. Currently, I am in college and unemployed and it is hard to scrap cash together to fund my book. When I manage to get cash, I have to use it for gas, bills, or repairs on my car. The money I gain from this campaign will go strictly to getting concept art done for the book. My goal is to have the book published and ready by summer but I don’t want to publish the book without artwork. Pictures can help tell a story and having pictures in the book will help me paint the picture I see in my head.
If I can raise the $500, I’ll be able to get some concept art done.
I can’t offer much, but I hope the rewards I have listed will be good enough. If the book gains more attention maybe donations on my site will help me give out better rewards later to those who helped me now. This book means a lot to me, I really want to see it get published and hopefully become a success. It would be a dream come true if my book could take off and I could make it my career.
