Hey guys. I'm working on releasing my first novel Souladonis very soon. Souladonis is a young adult fantasy series that has an entire MMORPG world built behind it. The problem is paying for the copyright, ISBN numbers, cover art, etc. I'm wondering if anyone has already had to deal with all of that and how it was done? I'm thinking of doing a crowdfunding campaign on Rockethub any suggestions, anecdotes, and/or ideas?

As a matter of interest, I've put the book description below. Feel free to skip that part.

Experience the wonder of a unique fantasy series featuring its own MMORPG world.


Six years have passed since Souladonis left Winterspring Academy in pursuit of a cure for the petrification curse. During his travels he has vastly improved his magic and martial arts abilities, yet nowhere has he found a cure for petrification. Eventually, his travels take him to Belle Forest in Âme Kingdom where he meets a pushy village girl named Katherine. Together they try to solve her village’s goblin problem. Yet when things go horribly wrong, he throws himself in harm’s way for her sake. Filled with gratitude, Katherine volunteers to follow him as his servant for one month. Thus, they set off together to experience more adventure than either of them could have ever dreamed.

The Souladonis Novel Features:
· An emotionally vulnerable hero with whom the average person can identify.
· A strong heroine who often outshines the hero.
· The budding romance of two shy people.
· Thrilling fast-paced battles of magic and martial arts written in vivid detail.
· Extreme moments of joy and sorrow that will make your heart both cringe and sing in elation.
· The witty sense of humor of a protagonist who doesn’t take himself too seriously.
· An established MMORPG world boasting nearly 500 magic spells in 13 Magic Disciplines, a myriad of distinct mage classes, a world map with an index of nations, a complete list of magical affixes, craft materials, and all of the essential elements that compose an MMORPG video game.
· A Killer Clown death mage who contributes to one of the most intense yet awkwardly funny scenes ever written.

There's a resource that's published every year, maybe you've seen it: The Writer's Market. I always thought you submitted to publishing companies or found an editor then they took care of all that. There's a Poet's Market too I believe, for other writers reading this. Congrats on your first novel. Always wanted to write a book myself.

Hey thanks for the resource head's up. If you go the traditional route, then yes you have to find an agent to help you connect with a publishing company and they'll hook you up with an editor. However, they do little by way of marketing your book. There are many cons with the traditional route. I personally think they outweigh the pros, so I'm going the self-publishing route. Of course the problem with that is that you have to do EVERYTHING yourself. I'm good at writing, but what does an INFJ know about mass marketing and building large scale social networks? Not much. Not for me at least.
