Kickstarting the End....

Bradley P. Beaulieu the author of The Lays of Anuskaya series which started with the Winds of Khalakovo a couple years ago from Nigh Shade Books has made the choice to kickstart the final novel in the series Tje Flames of Shadam Khoreh.

At higher levels you can get all the trade versions with consistent cover design or hard covers. He put together a short fiction collection earlier through Kickstarter that I wish I had gotten a chance to support. Thought I'd point your attention this way.
