Tales of Ravenore Pledge Manager Opening!
17 days ago – Sun, Jan 15, 2023 at 06:45:37 PM

Hi, Ravenore fans. 

I hope everyone had a great holiday. I just wanted to do a quick update. Backerkit has approved our pledge manager. Some of you may have already been notified by email. Everyone will get the notification within the next 48 hours. 

PLEDGE MANGER: If you are unfamiliar, or new to Kickstarter, the Pledge Manger is where you enter your address for shipping, as well as adding products to your order. If you already purchased add-ons, you will see a credit in your account that allows you spend those credits on either the add-on you opted for or you may choose something else instead. If you purchase something entire new, then you will add the funds to your account as you check out.

If you ordered a T-shirt, you will enter the size here as well. 

PROGRESSION: I received the edit back from the editor. I just about halfway through approval of the her corrections and suggestions. Then I will re-read it over myself and make any last adjustments before sending it to the layout artist.  Once I get that back, it will go to print. So, please fill out the pledge manager as soon as possible, so I have a count on items.

If you haven't gotten in on the Lords of LA, I will be launching issue #2 soon - Order Link

Talk soon, until then magic-up.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from Ravenore
about 1 month ago – Sun, Dec 25, 2022 at 06:18:14 PM

Hello, Ravenore fans,

I just wanted to drop a quick update and wish you and your families an awesome Holiday and Merry Christmas.

I received word back from the editor that everything was moving along. She even went out of her way to tell me that it was well-written and that she was enjoying it.  That's always good to hear. I'm excited to get everyone's feedback.

New pages for Lords of LA are coming in, so I'll be launching that one soon and we are starting to layout a Ravenore D&D 5e to see how much artwork I will need. So far it's sounding good.

Thank You! Campaign Successfully Completed.

Hi, Ravenore Fans.

I want to express my gratitude to all of our supporters. We have successfully brought the first book of the Ravenore Trilogy to life. The book has already been written and half of it has been edited. So, it has to go through the second half of editing and a couple of rounds of proof reading and then it will head to the printer.

In the meantime, please check your pledge and account. Many times bank alerts are triggered due to the Kickstarter charge not being recognized. To ensure your pledge goes through properly, please check your emails and texts to see if you got a notice asking if you made the charge and reply "yes." I've had this happen on my own pledges to other creators in the past. 

What happens next? If you're familiar with my other campaigns, then you're well aware of the next steps, for those of you that this is your first time (Welcome), then this is the procedure. I am currently putting together our Pledge Manager. It should be completed soon. You will receive an email from Backerkit.  You will log-in and it will allow you to enter your delivery address and view your pledge. From there, you can either upgrade your pledge or update it.  You can confirm your add-ons and even purchase additional products that you hadn't during the campaign. The Pledge Manager page will stay open for 30 days to allow people who were waiting for additional funds to receive those funds and apply them.  

If you ordered a T-shirt or one of the four Destiny Aurora novels, the Pledge Manager is where you will choose your size and which book you'd like, respectively.  I will also send out an announcement once the PM goes live. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to message me.  You can also chat with me via Facebook if you'd like through the Destiny Horizons page. www.

Thank you again, for supporting this project.

Only A Few Days Left

Hi, Ravenore Fans,

This campaign has definitely had it's ups and downs. We are still sitting strong and we should see some people come in in the last couple of days. If you haven't shared the link, this would be a good time to do so. I think we can hit at least one stretch goal by the end of the campaign. There are still over 600 people following the campaign that will get reminders in the last 48 hours. 

Below is a map of Ravenore.  No one knows what lies in Mythworld through the Stormveil, since the veil is a magical tempest that wipes your memories. When Threa emerges with various wounds, she finds herself in Direlore, which is based on Medieval Europe.  Jarrick is the Prince of Direlore and a secret romance blooms between them.  Spiretop is based on Feudal Japan where the witty Prince Shiro presides. 

Dyonisis is based on Ancient Greece where Prince Zagan hones his muscular form. He may not be the wisest member of Ravenore royalty, but he has a very clear vision of what makes a hero and tries to excel in that area. Vendara, based on Ancient Egypt, is ruled by Queen Khona, who has imparted her lofty demeanor on her daughter Arabella, who simply comes off as arrogant. Lastly there is Nasarein, based on Norse Viking culture, and populated by energy leeching Vampires. King Stroud, and his odd-mannered daughter, Florane preside here among with whistling gusts and frigid climate. 

In the shadows of the realm is Targath, the home of the Iron Witch, her Gral army, and her spy - a creature made of pure shadow. Here she prepares to invade Ravenore and unite the Five Reigns under her sole rule.

The Clan of Mist. 

Clan of Mist Now on Kickstarter

(A war is brewing on the horizon; choices will have to be made that will bring unexpected allies together, or tear apart clans forever.

Isolated her whole life in a village of fellow sirens, Thessalia finds her world turned upside down after she sets her eyes upon a tall mysterious male who walks into her life while training for her clan’s tournament that would decide her fate. Kage, a crocodile shifter and lowborn, has been trying to redeem his family's name, to pull them out of the mud. Kage finds his next mission will not only change his life, but impact the lives of those around him.)

Thank you all for continued support and I look forward to hearing your reactions to the first book in the Ravenore series.
