Hello, I am Kevin Donoghue and, to my amazement, an Amazon #1 best selling author. I never really expected to be an author, after all I am dyslexic, and further I have friends who are professional writers. I definitely do not have the skills or the ability to deliver several thousand words to a deadline. No, I am storyteller. And I became a storyteller by accident. You see, I am lazy kind of a workaholic, who lives an unconventional lifestyle. About a year ago I was ill and not able to work for a short time and as a result, in my boredom, I was driving everybody nuts. It was during this period that a very good friend suggested that I write down some of the stories, that I am renown for telling, from the time that I spent running around the world looking after Rock and Roll bands. I then started to remembered some of the stories that I used to make up, to entertain my son, an avid fan of Star Wars, LOTR and Mr Potter.  [ Did I mention that I am also a single parent? ]
And well, naturally, one thing led to another, as it where.

What do I want to achieve with Patreon?
I have taken the 5th Worlde Sagas to their first stage under my own steam. I have produced the initial run of 500 paperbacks and these are now going into distribution and marketing. And I have discovered that the independent author has so much more to do after the words have been crafted.

eBooks of Dark Library Series available through Amazon, Barnes Noble and iTunes;
The logical next step is to produce the remaining Forbidden Books of the Dark Library for full distribution though the eBooks system. Two are currently available in Amazon. This will be easily achieve and only require the books to be formatted correctly, yet that still cost a few hundred.

What are The Forbidden Books of The Dark Library?
The Forbidden Books of the Dark Library are series of short story books, which concentrate upon each characters POV and that characters storyline only. Where as the Sagas interwind all the characters and tell the whole story, in a complete worlde POV. You get the idea.

Marketing: General
Small scale Social Media marketing and the continued investment in updating and maintaining the website and the Newletter mailing list facilities. Marketing is another area in which the independent author has to be able to applying his skills after the words have been crafted.

Video Production
I would like to create a series of short videos to help with the marketing of the 5th Worlde Sagas.

Audio Books of the Sagas
The production of the audio version of the book From The Devil We Came is the really big job.
This is a very time consuming project and brings with it a significant expenditure in both Voice-Over costs and Studio production time, and then additional costs in CD Manufacture. Fortunately my knowledge of the music business will make this more easily achievable.

Future Projects

Paperback Volumes of the 5th Worlde Saga books 2 and 3
The second volume [ untitled ] of the Sagas is nearing completion and artwork will need to be compiled before we can begin the production of paperbacks copies [ Autumn 17. ] Volume three will be completed in Summer 18 with a autumn release.
 
Hardback version of The Lost Book of Heroes 
This is a very special project and some way down the line but it is never to early to start planning. I really want to produce a large limited edition hardback, a coffee table type of 'tome,' which I envisage will contain the first three books of the sagas. It will also have character details and description of the worlde, along with maps that folding-out, copies of letters from the charters to each other, and the lyrics to the songs. It will also contain images of the characters and places too. Obviously artists will need to be commissioned, as my artwork skills are limited to basic colouring-in with crayons.

Computer Games
After reading From The Devil We Came, a close friend suggested that the Sagas would make an interesting Action/ Role playing computer game. A kind of cross between Myst and Assassins Creed. It really is something that I had not considered but after the phenomenal success of George RR Martin's Game of Thrones, the genre is definitely much more popular.
Again a project that is very far down the line but it will need investigating... Possibly a three pipe problem.

The 5th Worlde
Here I want to introduce you to the 5th Worlde.

An Introduction to the 5th Worlde

Mans time in each worlde is is brief for he is fragile and when he dies he transmigrates from one worlde to the next. The Jinn are made of smokeless flame, they exist in sprit only and have mystic powers, and the Engel are the envoys and bringers of news. After an Engel has completed its task, it ceases to exist. Some believe they are the sprits of those who are currently transmigrating,

And so, inevitably, we come to the 5th Worlde. Unfortunately, As I am Sure you will learn, there is something is wrong in the 5th Worlde. Quite simply the 5th Worlde is broken. The timelines are converging. They merge and flux and shift and flow. And life has become very different indeed. History... is being Invented.

Synopsis
'The empire stretches across the worlde map, pink ~ like the blotches on a drunkards face.'


A series of dark epic fantasy novels that are set in a distorted alternative worlde of plots, high treason, intrigue, murder, war, torture, magic and true love.

The Sagas are set in the Medieval times of the 100 Years War. The storylines twirl around twelve individual protagonists of differing ages, race, gender and sexual orientation, as they fight to survive in a very brutal worlde.

Templars, Witches, Inquisitors, Wizards, Kings, Fairies, and Murderers ~ clash and plot intrigues.

A young Sir Thomas Henry Valentine Deveroux spies for the empire, under the guise of being one of the great literary minds of the age but he is is having trouble finishing his latest novel. His mother bullies him, his father has disinherited him, and his lover is a known witch and freethinking woman. Then an old Cambridge college acquaintance is murdered and his mentor disappears. And a smuggler finds a body in Camden Lock.

Deveroux struggles with his emotions, whilst his loyalty is torn between the Templars, the empire, and the crown. The cultural laws are introduced, the inquisition is in full swing, and the sadistic Witch-Finder General prosecutes all who fall beneath his grasp. And Deveroux meets a beautiful Chinese girl as chaos erupts around him.

And so, begins the hunt for a lost treasure, the fight for liberty, and the struggle for equality.
