Stormriders

Thousands of years beyond tomorrow, in a hostile and dangerous world, an unlikely alliance – between a young fisherman and a shipwreck survivor with secrets – may be the saving of them both… and of what remains of humanity.

Ben Corley has been alive for twenty years, and they have all been quiet. The island he calls home – one of thousands scattered through the Westerward Main – is a dull backwater near the southern tip of the archipelago, a haven for coastborn refugees, usually overlooked by the governing lords of Westerward. The whole of Ben’s life – growing up in a fishing village with his grandfather, his only family – although not of his choosing, has been simple.

Until the morning he stumbles upon the girl on the beach, nearly drowned and wearing Tider clothing, with strange tattoos on her arms and legs… and no memory of how she washed ashore. Or why.

A sweeping adventure tale of two young strangers, thrown together under the most peculiar of circumstances. With tyrannical politicians and mortal enemies in pursuit, they flee to the edges of the known world, searching for an extraordinary secret that could alter the foundations of their society forever. A secret worth dying for. And for some, worth killing for.

The adventure continues…



Hi, I'm Jen! I write under the pen name Jen Lynn Anderson. Thanks for visiting my Patreon page, and for reading the book jacket blurb of my novel-in-progress, Stormriders

Looking for a speculative YA fiction story about a badass heroine trying to survive in a dangerous and unforgiving future Earth, fighting tyranny and injustice with equally badass people? Also, do you like pirates? If you answered 'Yes' to either of these questions, I think you will enjoy the world of Stormriders, and the journeys of its protagonists, Ben and "Tess."

While I have explored various publication options for this project, including for a time as a series on a digital publishing platform, I am determined to publish Stormriders in a traditional novel format by late 2018. While I am moving forward with the writing aspect of this project and am thrilled at its progress, it is becoming more and more unrealistic for me to complete and independently publish this wonderful story without a little financial help. That, my wonderful Patrons, is where YOU come in!.

All Patreon donations for Stormriders will be used for the following:
-Hiring a professional editor.
-Hiring a professional cover artist (current image is an ebook/working cover design).
-Covering costs of eventual transfer from serial format to traditional novel format.
-Covering costs of physical print publishing.

Thank you for supporting this project, and thank you for supporting indie artists, writers, musicians and other creators!

Goals
$9 of $25 per month
The Editing Fund! A big goal is to hire a professional book editor for the following: plot/substantive editing, copy editing and grammar checks, structure editing and assistance in formatting serialized chapters into a traditional novel, and proofreading.

IF THIS GOAL IS ACHIEVED: I will hire a professional wordsmith to review the manuscript! (The common range of freelance editorial rates can be found here.)
