Kickstarter: THE LABYRINTH OF FLAME by Courtney Schafer

Courtney Schafer is the author of the very much loved Shattered Sigil Trilogy, and The Labyrinth of Flame is the concluding volume, so if you love this series (or just plain love fantasy), this is the Kickstarter for you! Please visit Courtney’s Kickstarter page and help support this project (funding ends on March 17th) and of course, check out the first two books in the series if you haven’t already.

About Kickstarting The Labyrinth of Flame:

“I loved my characters and world too much to abandon the series as some publishing professionals advised me to do. Nor did I want to leave readers bereft of a conclusion. (I’ve felt that pain myself far too many times!)

Yet I also wanted The Labyrinth of Flame to be as professional in content and design as the first two books in the series. I thought it’d be great to give readers the option of a physical edition that matched the first two in quality and look, so the trilogy would be a nicely matched set. And I emphatically did NOT want any more roadblocks on the way to publication. No more worrying that publisher problems beyond my control would prevent the book from reaching readers’ hands!

That’s why I’m kickstarting The Labyrinth of Flame. I’ve already written the book. I also hired award-winning artist David Palumbo (who did the cover art for the first two novels) and cover designer Martha Wade, and they’ve produced a beautiful cover.

I have excellent professional editors and production folks lined up – and a map artist, as I know many series readers have asked for a map, and I think it’ll be particularly useful for this third novel. The funds raised through this Kickstarter will go toward hiring these talented people and paying for printing, shipping, taxes, and other fees.

With your help, I can bring you a book that’s the absolute best conclusion to Dev and Kiran’s story that I can provide. Even if you’re not able to contribute financially, I’ll be hugely grateful for help in spreading the word about the series and this Kickstarter!”

    I was wondering if I should approach Courtney about doing an SF Signal interview tied to her kickstarter, but you were long since on it already, Kristin. Excellent work. 🙂
