Cyberwar is coming to bookstores this fall, in e-book and hardcover.
In an interesting twist on traditional publishers versus authors self-publishing on crowdfunding platforms, like Kickstarter, Pentian brings the books they deem worthy of publication to their own online crowdfunding forum where investors choose which books are worth getting behind in exchange for a portion of the book’s royalties for three years.
Pentian tests the market for the book, and when the market is proven, the pre-production cost to make the book is realized, as was the case with author R.J. Huneke’s book.
The fan base and the investors walk away from the experience thrilled.
One lucky fan of Cyberwar purchased the right to be a recurring villain in what will be the Cyberwar series.
Read the description:
The ultimate reward for the ultimate backer. Become a part of history by having your name become a recurring character in the Cyberwar series! If you want to be a part of the ongoing lore and the Cyber society at large, become a character that will live on in the Cyberwar series, despite the mayhem that ensues. You will also receive ten copies of the book along with 14.29% of the royalties generated over the next three years.
R.J. Huneke will be on hand at the Javit’s Center in New York City to sign posters, give away t-shirts and bookmarks and signed copies of the eagerly awaited novel. Head down October 9-12 at the New York Comic Con convention Rune Works Productions / Pentian Publishing Booth # 1061.
