Top 5 US Fiction Kickstarters Of All Time

So, the Age of Legend Kickstarter, continues to go well. Our thanks go out to all the people joining the fun. We have 11 days left, and so far it has made the Top 5 of all time when looking at the number of backers for  US-based fiction projects.

It's currently sitting snuggly at #4, right between two of my other Kickstarters. Likewise, when we look at most-funded. It's doing well, too. It's currently #6, and the likelihood that it'll push out #5 (my project The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter. Is pretty good. Whether it can get more backers, is another story. We're still 324 backers behind that, and that's a lot of people to make up in the remaining time. Still, even if it doesn't we have absolutely nothing to complain about.  Just a reminder. Those who back the Kickstarter get:

  • The ability to read the book 3 months early.
  • Having their name in print as a backer of the project
  • A Minna and Suri short story
  • Screensavers of Marc Simonetti's artwork for their phone, tablet and computer
  • Custom-designed bookmarks
  • Many other bonus perks.
Oh, and the contest to guess the final funding amount will end when March 12th does. The one who guesses closest will win a 1,000-piece puzzle of Magda.

It's one of a kind! (Or I should say 2 of a kind, as we're getting one of the puzzles for ourselves.

    That Magda portrait/puzzle is still an awesome piece of work and so very beautiful, she's more majestic than my mind even allowed!

  4. Hey Michael, just finished Age of War, great job! Looking forward to the next installment. I haven't read the Riryia works yet, but it's on my list now!

  5. @Greg Orion - you will not be disappointed. The Riyria Revelations and Chronicles and other related novels are terrific. I'd suggest just going ahead and buying them all because as soon as you finish one you'll want to get started on the next and so forth!

    Sounds like you need a dose of Royce and Hadrian. I love all their books but i must say that the Riyria Revelations has one of the best endings to any series EVAH. I read a lot (8-10 books a week). And while the books are not perfect (none are) man, they are FUN. And Royce and Hadrian are terrific characters. The first series ties up so well, it still shocks me. I believe this is because Michael J Sullivan says he writes the series out in its entirety first, so all the clues are there, all the breadcrumbs are spread in advance.

    I recommend the series frequently and no one has ever come back and said they disliked it.
