of bringing this story into existence.
Imagine if
you’d been there when Suzanne Collins was writing The Hunger Games or Stephanie Meyer was writing Twilight. When George RR Martin was
penning Game of Thrones. You might
have lived the story through advance copies and maybe a conversation or two.
When you join me on BREATH, you can receive advance copies, artwork,
photographs, and short, BREATH-inspired love stories that only a handful of
readers will ever lay eyes on. You will receive regular updates from me about
how BREATH is coming to life.

get to travel with Nif and Sherin during their adventures, but you’ll also be
present alongside the past and future archeologists who are driven to solve the
puzzle of their existence.

BREATH an amazing, immersive, world-building experience, the novel will need
original art work, award-winning editorial direction and design, plus vintage
photography from some of the greatest archeological expeditions the world has
ever known.
And you
can help make that happen, and get some fantastic rewards, too. Not only swag

book of BREATH artwork and photography, and even personal story consulting worth
hundreds of dollars.

soul-stirring. A poetry of words and pictures that doesn’t merely introduce
them to a story, but draws them into a whole world of passion, adventure and
intrigue with characters who come to feel like family.

things you’ll grab and save if you ever have to run out of your burning house
