Hank Quense announces a Kickstarter Campaign

 Our friend, Hank Quense (of Faux News Network fame) has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to publish his next novel, Moxies Decision. Why?  Hank says he has two reasons: because the world needs more parody stories and books are expensive to publish.

The Kickstarter Campaign will run from May 1 to May 31. Here is the link to the web page: http://kck.st/1GMJESP.  You can support the Kickstarter Campaign by making a contribution or by spreading the word about Campaign and sharing the Kickstarter link.


The campaign offers a variety of rewards for contributors.  There are ebooks, print books, ebook packages, print book packages.  There is also a unique series of rewards involve one-on-one lectures covering fiction writing self-publishing and book marketing topics.  All these lectures can be provided via Skype video calls or other means.  Another reward offers short story critiques.


Moxies Decision is the second book involving the title character, Princess Moxie.  The first is called Moxies Problem. 

You dont have to read Moxies Problem to enjoy Moxies Decision.  Both books are standalone stories.

Here is a brief synopsis of Moxies character arc. 

Moxie is an obnoxious teenage princess who has never been outside her fathers castle until the beginning of the Moxies Problem novel.  She quickly learns that life outside is dramatically and dangerously different from life inside the castle.  Moxie also learns that she hasnt been trained to do anything with her life.  She realizes she has to get a life and after a bit of reflection, she decides to become the queen after her father dies.  But Moxie has no inkling of how to rule.  She realizes she has to learn how to become independent and to gain self-confidence.

That is where Moxies Problem ends and the new book picks up.  Moxies Decision will continue her adventure to become strong enough and decisive enough to rule a kingdom.  This second book is the conclusion of Moxies journey from an obnoxious teenage princess to an independent, decisive young woman.

Both novels are set against a backdrop of Camelot.  But its not the traditional Camelot.  This Camelot is in a parallel universe.

    1. Parallel universes allow me to get away with almost anything, no matter how implausible

  6. "But Moxie has no inkling of how to rule." That's okay. The world is full of gov't leaders who have no inkling of how to rule and they seem to be doing fine and get re-elected every year. Don't worry, Moxie - ruling is a piece of cake! ;)
