A Kingdom in Peril...
After closing the rift between Earth and Galadir, Seth Alkirk disappears, leaving the world of Galadir in a troubled state. The remnants of the Findoor army, led by Malia, flee into the west after the dark wizard Grian usurps the throne of her kingdom.
Grian is the most dangerous threat the people of Galadir have ever faced. To the west, he invades a neighboring kingdom with a massive army of undead. Narshuks to the south are dying of a disease unleashed by Grian. Wizards to the east struggle against his wraiths to hold on to their stronghold and the libraries within.
When Seth reappears, everyone turns to him for salvation. With the weight of an entire world yet again on his shoulders, Seth hatches a plan to show Galadir that they can fight for themselves.
Seth doesn't know his evil nemesis has finally found what he's been looking for. As Grian prepares for his final assault on the east to capture what he seeks, all of Galadir confronts him, brought together by a mysterious force. But is it enough? Alliances will be broken, new friendships made, old ones rekindled, and nobody will ever be the same. The battle for Galadir has begun.
The Epic Conclusion to The Time Weaver Chronicles
My name is Thomas A. Knight, and I'm an independent fantasy author. I've been writing novels for almost three years, and writing for fantasy games and campaigns for over twenty. I've published two novels, and this campaign will help fund the editing, publishing and advertising of the third and final novel in The Time Weaver Chronicles.
The launches for my books in the past have been low-key and somewhat quiet because I'm independant, and lack the funding and impact that the big publishers have. For me, getting some funding to help with the launch of my third book will make all the difference in the world.
It's my hope, that with some carefully selected advertising, and the right people helping me out, I can launch my third book onto the bestseller lists, and maybe even take my first two books with it!
What people are saying about The Time Weaver Chronicles...
“I absolutely love The Time Weaver Chronicles. The story is so fascinating, well written, and while it has a lot of fantasy elements that I know and love, it also has new and unique elements that make it even more interesting.” - Megan Monell, Love, Literature, Art, and Reason
"I was caught up in this book from the moment I started reading it. It was so full of action, adventure, magic, mystery, evil, and a twist of romance that I couldn't help but keep reading." - Angela, Angels are Kids and Furkids
“It starts good. I enjoyed it a lot. And as you read on, it gets better. And better.” - Will Knight, Bibliophilia, Please
“Thomas A. Knight's, The Time Weaver is epic in every way. The world building is stunning and detailed, full of scary creatures, monumental landscapes and wonderful characters.” - Sallie Lundy-Frommer, Author, Yesterday's Daughter
What I Need & What You Get
$5,000 is a big goal, right? Not really. Advertising is expensive, especially the kind that will get my books noticed. That's where the bulk of my funding will go.
I'm offering some exclusive items as incentives too! Desktop wallpapers designed by my very talented wife, eBooks, paperbacks, and even hardcovers of all three books. Also, don't miss out on the chance to pick up a beautiful poster-sized print of the map for my world, Galadir.
But hey, what's a campaign without a little fun?
Magic in my world is separated into eight elements: fire, water, earth, air, life, death, time and shadow. Pick one of these, grab the perk for your element, and see which one is the strongest at the end of the campaign. Every person in the winning element will receive a special gift from me: a full-color, custom designed bookmark that matches your element. This will be the only time this particular bookmark will be available, so drum up support for your element, and grab a piece of history.
But wait, there's more!
If I reach my goal, in order to show my appreciation, the single person who brings the most people to my campaign through referrals will receive a $250 Amazon Gift card as a thank you gift.
Even if I don't reach my goal, every penny will count. I'll stretch every dollar to its limit in order to reach my goals for this launch. I'm very excited about it, and feel that this is my best book yet.
Books have always had a cultural significance to our world, and fantasy books are no different. Tolkein, Donaldson, Martin, Sanderson, and so many other wonderful authors have taken people into their worlds and enriched their lives with exciting adventures, vivid landscapes, and unique characters. By supporting me and my books, you'll be helping to bring a new world, and new adventures to people everywhere.
My past book launches have landed both of my books on Amazon Bestseller lists. The Time Weaver has been on the Epic Fantasy and Science Fiction Adventure lists a number of times, and Legacy has made it onto the Science Fiction Time Travel bestseller list. With an advertising budget this time, I plan on hitting more than just the Amazon bestseller lists.
Of course, it's not all about me. I have always supported the non-profit charity, Reglue, with a portion of my royalties, and my third book will be no different. $0.50 from every eBook, and $1.00 from every paperback sold are donated to Reglue to help offset their operating costs. By getting the word out, and reaching a broader audience with my launch, I can sell more, and give more to this very worthy cause.

Most perks will ship when the campaign is complete or when the items are ready, with the following exceptions:
- Copies of Reprisal will be shipped when editing is complete. (Est. December, 2013.)
- Hard-cover copies of all books will be shipped when they are ready. (Est. December, 2013.)
- If you select a perk that includes a physical copy of Reprisal, I will ship all of your perks together to save on shipping costs. If you want your stuff sooner, you'll have to help me out with the extra shipping cost.
- I have worked the cost of shipping into the price of the perk. I'm not asking for extra money for international shipping, but it's appreciated. Shipping is expensive.
