:blobcatpeek: hello

I'm trying to achieve a lifelong dream of publishing a novel and I would really appreciate your help!

The family business is raising the dead; Ree has other ambitions. She’s going to resurrect the ancient magic of shapeshifting, but might doom her necromantic hometown in the process.

BOOKS & BONE is a librarians-and-necromancy fantasy with warmth and weirdness.

Thanks so much to everyone who has supported so far. πŸ’™

@vicorva Love the idea and the premise. Just backed you on Kickstarter to get you up to the Β£600 mark. You're getting really close! Good luck! Can't wait to read it.

@vicorva scratch that. I either can't do math or misread something. You're not quite to Β£600, but that's OK. Still: good luck!

@paco Thank you so much! :blobaww: Sometimes kickstarter shows the numbers oddly, so that might account for the confusion. :)

So far it's going really well -- only 5 days in. But I'm very nervous that I won't reach the mark, so getting messages like this really cheers me up.

@vicorva I went 46 years before I ever wrote my first bit of fiction. So I admire how quickly you got around to it. ;) (I write a ton of non-fiction, tech stuff all day long). More near-future sci-fi than anything. You can read it if you like.

@paco I've downloaded your ebook! I'll have a read tomorrow when I have a bit more time. :)

@vicorva Also: I just finished my second reading of the sample first chapter. If the rest of the book is as good, this will be a really enjoyable book. Looking forward to it!

@paco :blobaww: Thank you! This is so kind of you to say. Fingers-crossed it will fund -- and it will not disappoint! πŸ˜…

@vicorva This sounds like Lirael and looks really interesting.

@alice This is so lovelyt of you to say! It's actually very inspired by Lirael, which had a big effect on me as a teen. The difference being, the necromancers are not the bad guys. Or ... they're the protagonists, anyway.

@vicorva Oh my goddess me too! I loved that book and wrote a few things inspired by the Old Kingdom myself. I hope this gets funded <3

@vicorva backed it, because it looks fantastic and I've been digging your microfiction toots πŸ’€ 🐱 πŸ§™

@twangdarkly eek! :blobaww: Thank you for backing and also for this huge compliment!

@vicorva I discovered your feed because of a boost and enjoyed reading your micro-fiction. I backed your kickstarter and am excited to read your book when it comes out! Thanks for posting! πŸ“– πŸ˜„

@squerk Oh thank you! This is such a lovely message to recieve. I'm glad you enjoy my writing, I will definitely be doing a lot more of it. :D
