Our Kickstarter Has Begun!

Greetings Seekers!

First of all, a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported us thus far, and has patiently awaited the debut of our first novel. We appreciate all the input, the words of encouragement, and laughter you have infused into the writing process. You helped us adhere to our own motto: By your compass stay true! So again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Secondly, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our Kickstarter! Turns out that self-publishing a book (while highly rewarding) isn’t free, and we aren’t independently wealthy. Therefore, we are asking for your help to bring Trials of the Innermost into the world as the glittering gem of reading pleasure that it constitutes. If we can achieve our funding goal of $2,500, then we will be able to successfully print, publish, and market our book.

Please understand–we are aware that not everyone is in a position to provide financial backing. If you are unable to pledge at this time, please consider sharing our project with your friends, family, and anyone who enjoys a great read. We appreciate your support no matter what form it takes 🙂

If you are in a position to contribute, we will of course accept pledges in any amount. However, we are also offering rewards for pledges starting at the price of a latte at Starbucks–yup, all you need to pledge is $5 to be eligible for a reward. The more you pledge, the more cool swag and digital items you get at the Kickstarter’s conclusion. Oh, and did we mention that most of those items will be limited-edition, launch-exclusive merch?

On that note, we want to address a couple logistical things. First, if your pledge amount qualifies you for any reward(s), our goal is to have your item(s) shipped or delivered to you within two weeks following the Kickstarter’s end. The Kickstarter will run for 30 days beginning today, so you should receive all your awesomeness by the end of May. And don’t worry, you won’t be charged for shipping–we built that into our rewards.

Second, we want everyone to know that EVERY dollar we raise is going toward getting our book into the world and making it visible. Extensive calculations and research determined the amount we need (you should see the spreadsheet) and how we will use it–every penny will serve a purpose.

Finally, and most excitingly, at the end of the Kickstarter we will also be announcing the RELEASE DATE for our book! We would love to tell you now, but in the words of River Song: “Spoilers.” That being said, let’s just say that Trials of the Innermost should be on your summer reading list 😉

That’s it for now! Thank you in advance to anyone who pledges to the Kickstarter, and thank you again to ALL of our Seekers! If any of you have questions about the Kickstarter or anything else, please reach out to us at inquiries@jonathanandkristina.com.

By your compass stay true.
