to regale you with dreams in the darkness of night
."- The Fable-Maker

Hello Wanderers! My name is Alexander LeBlanc and I am an up-and-coming author that is not only trying to get a fresh, new book published, but also trying to start a new series for the literary world to enjoy known as "Tales of Ascaria". A fantasy anthology series that share the various stories that take place within the world.


One of the main reasons I am on Patreon is because I am looking to help build a community of Wanderers to explore this new world and share the stories to all who hold the spirit of wonder within themselves. Though I am willing to throw everything I have into getting this off the ground, I also have plans and story outlines for the upcoming books in both the series and other works in mind, which means that joining the Wanderer community will lead you to more paths and stories out in the worlds. After all, a well made road is not the only path to take.

What am I trying to publish?

Now let's get down to business, to collect...THE FUNDS! ( I apologize for the poorly executed Mulan reference.) Any and all amounts of your support for this project are ALL GOING TOWARD THE PUBLICATION  of these books. "Tales of the Forest", "Tales of Ascaria" , and any other story that is waiting to be told. After all, Ascaria is a huge place with its own history and people undergoing their own adventures and stories. The plan is to use an accredited self-publishing company named Dorrance to help with the publication, advertising, and distribution of my books and send them out into the world. Finally, that is where you come in. Your contributions will help me not only bring this book to life but more so in the near future. For there is another story that is already in the works with more planned afterward. So no, it will not be a one and done situation.

Why should you care?
Because you will be part of a start-up community of Wanderers who will be the first to join in on the adventure of exploring a new land. This isn't Middle- Earth, Narnia, Westeros, or Hogwarts; but a land that is a place of it's own. You may notice some things are familiar, but be wary. Second looks often surpass the first glance. And when joining the community of Wanderers, you gain excess to the rewards and exclusive newsletter group which will let you see upcoming news, plans for the future, and get first look peaks at upcoming stories. This will also allow you to be kept in the loop about any discounts and deals that could be made for book or merchandise.

Okay, now let me get real here and not try to sell you anything but  tell a truth about me... I am completely new at ALL OF THIS! Yes, I know, a young, graduated, stud out in the world trying to make a name for himself on the Internet and he is saying he is new to something!? What is wrong with the guy? Well I figured that you deserve the truth. Though I have nothing to show for it now, my plans if this series can take off as I hope it would will include discounts, websites, and merchandise shops for the book and whatever series come from them. 

At the top of this section I started with the word "wanderer". A Wanderer to me is someone who admits that they may not always have a destination in mind or a journey trek planned out; but they do have a dream. And when that dream is all they have, they will not rest until they make it a reality. So I invite you all to join me on this journey and wander through the exotic land of Ascaria as we witness the many stories and adventures that can be seen in this world. Just like many of the great stories made in the fantasy world and in our own real world; it was all started with one simple step.

Alright so at this point; it's obvious you are seriously supporting this project. So not only will you have a letter of gratitude sent to you; but also an invitation to let yourself join a community known as The Wanderers. There you will have newsletters emailed to you with updates and hear the first hand news about upcoming changes, books, and other happenings. What will they be? No idea..let's wander around and find out.

So a donation like this deserves a sneak peak to the squeal of  the start up story, "Tales of the Forest." The sequel "Tales of Ascaria; the Wanderer's Walk"; just so that you know what is awaiting down the road. It will be a page long preview; but it will give you an idea of what you can expect and see that there is potential for a coherent and exciting series.

Wow...if you can actually and willingly plan to support the project at THIS level; you are possibly a bit to generous for your own good. At this tier and in addition to getting everything offered in the other tiers; you get to be made into a proactive and major character within one of the Tale stories. Yes; in collaboration with me and yourself we will create your character and either have that person as the or one of the main characters. After all; with all the effort you are putting into the creation of this series you deserve a role in the story as well. It MAY be similar to how the companions work in Doctor who; but the details can be discussed later.
Goals
$0 of $200 per month
So there is a specific reason for this number. My plan is to use a self publishing company called Dorrence to help get this book properly edited, publicized, and distributed to the world. I have researched them and they are legit and real thanks to the Better Business Bureau and their research. Now there is a plan that charges about $200 a month  instead of paying a full $3,900 to get the book publish.

I will like to take this time to point out I am using  A SELF- PUBLISHING COMPANY; it is a company that is going to do the majority of the work. ( They have phone numbers, I have been in contact with one of their workers via phone call and email, and have been around for over 100 years with a list of successful authors. I think it is safe to say they are a real company.) 

So this is not exactly a milestone, more like a starting point. If I can raise atleast 200 a month from this Patreon; then I can not only pay off Dorrence within a year to get my book published and a series started. As I said I do plan to help contribute to this with my own job.
