What's it all about!
My name is John Mierau. ENEMY LINES is a near-future adventure novel. It's built on mystery, danger, a touch of humor, and exciting characters you will root for... but they won't always win.
Now I want to make it available in ebook and Print. I created this IndieGoGo campaign to fund editing & cover illustration.
UPDATE: [Dec. 28,2011]
Every funder, big and small, is proving they believe in ENEMY LINES & putting their money where their mouth is. If this campaign is fully funded...
ALL funders will be included in a random draw for a Kindle Fire & all my ebooks!
(shipping extra outside USA!)
Like all authors, I'm worth exactly what you think I am...so I've made one of my most popular novellas, HARLAN'S WAKE, a *free* download on Smashwords, iBooks & Kindle. Please check out my work. I hope you'll want more, & help me write more by supporting this project.
I'm an Indie author. That means that in three years, I've never made an advance on a novel. I WANT YOU to by my publisher. My Patron... and a HAPPY READER.
What's ENEMY LINES about? Well now, that would be telling! In short, it's a near-future adventure about conspiracies, spies and aliens-where the lines aren't as clear as you think. I don't want to spoil it by saying more, but if you like hints, you can check out the Book Trailer, or the transmedia campaign I put together with some of the top audiobook and podcast fiction voice around: 'ENEMY LINES: Transmissions'.
Here's where *you* come in!
I'm an independant artist. I've never had an advance, a publicity budget or an editorial staff. I do everything myself or I have to find someone who can help.
To me, IndieGoGo feels like the best way to reach out to my readers to fund what I'm creating *for* them. I don't believe I need a publisher to commission beautiful covers and pay for editng and printing costs. That just drives up the cost for you, and the profits for another company.
What ENEMY LINES Needs & What You Get:
So what do you get? You crowd-source the release of ENEMY LINES, book 1, and you get me working, creating new words for you.
...but that's not all you get! Read on for the perks!
