Kickstarter Launch Date Set!



Okay, the Kickstarter project is approved! So I'll launch it tomorrow.  Here are some specifics on the project:

  • Project launch:  Thursday, October 5th at 12:00 noon EDT
  • Project end: Thursday, October 26, 2017 at 8:30 p.m. EDT
  • Find a link for the project by searching "Winter's Daughter" in Kickstarter after the launch, or come back here at noon for a link.
  • Backers will be able to read the book on December 5th, a full 6 months before the retail release!
  • We are raising money for a print run to produce: rare editions (faux leather bound books in a slipcase), limited editions (linen hardcover with a custom cover), regular hardcovers, and trade paperbacks. If the Kickstarter doesn't fund, the book will still be released, it just won't have any hardcover editions.
  • We will be able to offer audio versions of the book. They will be distributed through download codes redeemed at Audible.com. If you don't have and Audible account, you can start one for free, and your book will still be available even after you leave Audible.com.
  • If you want both a physical book AND an audio version, choose the appropriate paper level, and then add $10 to your pledge. You can then "assign" that $10 to an audiobook edition after the Kickstarter has ended.
  • If you want both a physical book AND an ebook, just pick any paper level, the ebook is already included for all people with physical books.
  • Last time we did the shipping ourselves (which turned into a nightmare), this time we are going to use a fulfillment processor so the shipping should go much more smoothly.
  • There are a number of reward levels which have limited quantities (the rare and limited edition copies), and some early-bird specials (20% discount off of popular reward levels but only for the first 50 backers). 
That last bullet is why we are (a) pre-announcing the Kickstarter, and (b) launching at a particular day and time. This will allow everyone to have an equal chance at the limited quantity items.

Backer Levels range from $8 (for an early-bird digital only version to $125, for the rare editions) In order for  you to plan what level you will be backing at, Robin has put together this handy little table. Click here, or on the table to see a high-resolution version which is easier to read.


Once again, it's Robin who has done all the heavy lifting for the Kickstarter. My contribution was (a) writing the book and (b) recording a video. I hope you are excited as I am about the launch of this Kickstarter. I'm hoping it will be a huge success.

  1. I am jazzed that there is another book in this series. I will be waiting for the link tomorrow so I can get in early.

    I have listened to all of the books on Audible. I think I may be in love with Tim -- I'm sure I love his voice. I am transported by these books -- they came into my life at just the right moment.

  5. Awesome news! :) Loving the series! Hope that this one and also the other remaining books get translated to German quickly, and then narrated by David Nathan again, he's doing an excellent job at that!
