On Kickstarter Now: The King-Killing Queen by Shawn Speakman

Hi Everyone,

I hope this finds you well and reading something great!

I have some news to share! Two years ago, I was approached by Skybound Entertainment (The Walking Dead, Invincible) to partner in a new publishing model. It involves launching books on Kickstarter first (ala Brandon Sanderson) and then using that springboard for a later wide-release in bookstores. This involves their various divisions like graphic novels, TV/Film, and gaming as well as book publishing. They wanted my new novel, The King-Killing Queen, to be the book that launches it all in hopes of bringing other like-minded authors on board. I was stunned by that, though I do feel a little bit like a guinea pig. And their graphic novel division liked my universe so much they asked to adapt my prequel short story The Briar-Sword Monk into a full-color graphic novel hardcover that also features my short story as readable prose.

Well, that Kickstarter is NOW LIVE!! Find it HERE!!

Because of what I charge for signed regular SF&F hardcovers here on The Signed Page, I purposefully asked Skybound to offer the regular hardcovers of The King-Killing Queen and The Briar-Sword Monk around those same prices. In short, you can pledge to get just The King-Killing Queen at $30 these first 24 hours of the Kickstarter, or you can pledge to get both The King-Killing Queen and the full-color graphic novel The Briar-Sword Monk for $60 these first 24 hours!

After 24 hours, those Early Bird Specials vanish. So get your pledge in today. And of course, if you want higher-end versions of these books, they are available on the Kickstarter as well. Go take a look and see what we’ve been up to!

Thank you again for your support and love over the years. I really appreciate it!

With Magic,
Shawn Speakman
