In honor of the one year anniversary of The Everlasting: Eye of the Wise light novel by Biako, Vic’s Lab, LLC, recently launched a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter.com to release an updated edition with interior art.
The Kickstarter campaign has a goal of $300 and will end on May 1, 2018. Backers of the project can pledge amounts as low as $1, and rewards include an ebook edition for $5, which is lower than it’s $5.99 retail price, and a print edition and four other rewards for $25.
“We want fans of the novel to decide whether they want a new edition of The Everlasting with interior art,” said company founder Chad “Vic” Adams. “We felt that the best way to gauge public interest is to launch a Kickstarter and reward backers for their contribution.”
If funds surpass the goal within a short time-frame, the company plans to add stretch goals. Under consideration are more art, a book trailer, and/or publishing additional volumes in the series.
