Nolyn Kickstarter: Launches 02/09 @ 12:00 Noon EST


So, as many of you may know, I have a new series coming out! It's called The Rise and Fall and just as Legends of the First Empire shows the First Great War between men and elves and the founding of The Novronian Empire, this series will focus on three important points in the history of Elan that will give you the inside scoop on how the empire rose and eventually fell.  I sometimes call this my "bridge series" because it fits between the Legends of the First Empire and the Riyria tales.

Unlike most series where you follow the same cast of characters from start to finish, these books will span large amounts of time and each book will be self-contained and focus on one or two important characters from history.

  • Book #1 - Nolyn - the son of Nyphron and Persephone
  • Book #2 - Farilane - the historian and author of The Migration of Peoples
  • Book #3 - Esrahaddon - the origin story of the mysterious wizard from the Riyria books
Nolyn will be released through the major retail market on August 3, 2021, but for people who pre-order through the Kickstarter, you'll receive the book 3 or 4 months before everyone else. As for the other books in the series, they will be released at one-year intervals - and each will have its own Kickstarter.

Like all our prior crowd-funding projects, we offer early-bird discounts where several of the most popular reward levels will be discounted by 20%.  Now, in the past, these levels have sold out in mere minutes, even though we increased the number available for each project.  This time, we are doing things a bit differently.  The following reward levels will be open for the first 15 minutes of the campaign (noon to 12:15 PM).  So, you still have to be quick to nab one, but not nearly as fast as in the past.  Here's a list of them:
  • Digital Early Bird - $8 instead of $10 for ebook only
  • Hardcover Early Bird - $28 instead of $35 for ebook AND regular hardcover
  • Rare Early Bird - $60 instead of  $75 for ebook AND limited edition faux leather hardcover
Reward levels vary from $5 to $100 and this chart explains what is in each level:


While we are still working on the final design of the covers, this is what we currently have.  The regular hardcover will have a dust jacket with artwork from the amazing Marc Simonetti. The rare edition will be faux-leather with one or two color foil stamping.

How many copies of the limited edition will there be? I'm not sure. I'm going to print fifty more than are ordered through Kickstarter (to account for possible damaged books or books lost in the mail).  These will NOT be reprinted, they will be numbered and dated, and they won't be sold through retailers (you'll only be able to get them from the Kickstarter or directly from us (for the leftovers).  I suspect there will be less than 500 copies made.  The hardcovers will be printed in quantities of 10,000 - 15,000 copies and there may be multiple printing of them.

Okay, so what is this book about?  Well, here is the copy we've come up with for the back of the book:

After more than five hundred years of stagnation, the heir to the empire is suspicious about his sudden reassignment to active duty on the Goblin Wars’ front lines. His first assignment to rescue an outpost leads to a dead-end canyon deep inside enemy territory. Suspicion turns to dread and then sinks to despair when it’s discovered no such stronghold exists. But whoever went to the trouble of making his death look like a casualty of war didn’t know anything about the Seventh Sikaria Auxiliary Squadron to which he had been assigned. In the depths of an unforgiving jungle, a legend is about to be born, and the world of Elan will never be the same. 

Buying through a Kickstarter puts significantly more of your money into my pocket.  When books are bought through retailers 75% - 80% of the money you pay goes to others (our distribution partners and the retailers).  But you also get things that retailers can't provide such as:

  • Signed physical books.
  • Your name in print (if you so desire) - your name will be listed in the acknowledgment as one of the people who helped bring this project to life.
  • Receiving the story months before the rest of the world.
  • Digital artwork of Marc's illustrations (for screen savers).
There will also be various additional bonuses added as the project goes on, assuming we hit various stretch goals.  In the past, some of the things we've done include:
  • Custom created bookmarks (usually signed)
  • Bonus short stories
  • Behind the scenes insights into the creation process
  • T-shirts, tote bags, and posters
  • Embossed signature pages
Well, I think that's enough for now. Remember to mark your calendar and show up between noon and 12:15 to get an early-bird discount. Here is the link (which will go live) on 02/09.  If you use it now, you can sign up for an email notification in case you forget.  I hope to see you there!

    1. Great. This means I might be able to get one of the Early Bird hardbacks. Missed the last few.

    2. I think doing it this way will make certainly help out as in the past the early birds disappeared so quickly - even though we kept upping their levels.

    3. I feel better than never. I have more energy in bed and I am not ashamed to take off my pants. It is certainly due to getting rid of the stress of having to deal with a small penis. I can screw for 20 or 30 minutes, my penis doesn't get soft and it has grown 5.2 inches more. My penis has grown, so far, up to 8.5 inches in 2 weeks, Having a bigger penis and satisfying your partner is really amazing and appreciative. Finally, I feel pleasure in doing it and I can satisfy the girl I'm with.

  2. I usually order books online from kick starter, so I should get the book 3 to 4 months before everyone else? As a big fan of Michael J. Sullivan, I am already so excited about the rise and fall. I still remember when Age of Swords came out, I had an essay due. I legit took an online argumentative essay help so that I get done with work ASAP and read the book in peace. Already clearing my schedule for the big book!!

  3. Can't wait for the kickstarter to start! I enjoyed almost all your books and the second half of the Legends series was especially spectacular. Looking forward to reading Nolyn.

  17. This is very helpful with no side effect...Before I began Doctor Aziba natural penis enlargement Product I measured 4 Inches in erect length, and 3 inches in erect girth. While flaccid I measured 3.4 Inches long. I began using his product, slightly skeptical I admit, and just 2 weeks later I was very happy with my progress. I measured 7.5 inches erect length and 6.5 inches erect girth, and 5.5 inches flaccid length. I was actually quite shocked at the huge gains I’d had, and continued using the product regularly, sticking to the usage schedule rigorously. After about 2-3 weeks I am 8.2 Inches in erect length and 8.1 Inches in erect girth. I am also 7.2 fnches long while flaccid.

Three days later, it already measured 6.6 inches. I had to do absolutely nothing because it was completely automatic. Six days later, I had gained one more Eight inch. The result: 8.1 inches!

I did not believe him and I keep my faith up hoping that one day I will be cured from this horrible disease. One day I saw a post on the Herpes Virus Blog forum about a herbal doctor called Dr. Kham on how he cures people from diseases with his herbs and I quickly contacted Dr. Kham on his email explained my problem to him and he told me not to worry that he is going to cure me and truly he prepared the cure and sent it to me through UPS and gave me instructions on how to take it. After two weeks of taking the herbal Medication, I went to my doctor for a checkup and my results showed Negative and my doctor told me that there is no trace of herpes in my body and the virus is completely gone from my body. Everybody at the clinic rejoices with me and they all ask for Dr. Kham contact. You can contact Dr. Kham on his email: dr.khamcaregiver@gmail.com or add whats-app +2348159922297  and you can get in touch with him on his website: drkhamherbalhealingcenter.wordpress.com/   or https://drkhamcaregiver.wixsite.com/drkhamcaregiverherba , He also have herbs medicine to cured the following diseases: [eczema], [urethra wart], [chronic problems], [Herpes], [Cancer], [Als], [Hepatitis], [Diabetes], [HPV], [Infertility/PCOS Infections] , [ulcer  ETC......

  24. Will there be an early bird version of "All In?"

    R (Early Bird) is $60
    H (Early Bird) is $28
    But all in is $100

    1. Kinda. While there isn't a A (Early Bird)...what you can do is back at the R(early Bird) $60 and then do a $25 "add-on" for the hardcover - that essentially gets you the same amount of stuff as "all in" but at $85 rather than $100.
