Kickstarter Update #5

(The other four updates can be seen here.)

Hey everybody! My Kickstarter donations finally arrived in my bank account, and I made my first big purchase yesterday: twenty paperback books! That means that if you ordered The Accidental Siren or Lighthouse Nights, you’ll be receiving your reward in about two weeks! If The Brandywine Prophet is part of your reward, you’ll receive your books a couple weeks after that. (The Day I Wore Purple will be shipped separately in a few months, and will not delay anyone’s order!)

Okay, now for the exciting news!

The Accidental Siren
Five weeks after purchasing’s distribution package, it finally looks like The Accidental Siren is about to be Amazon! I talked to them yesterday, and they assured me it would be posted within the week.

When this happens, I’m going to need all the help I can get. So be prepared : )

Lighthouse Nights

(I really need a publicist… these pictures should not be on the internet.)

In about six weeks, this book will be available online with a beautiful (and a little morbid) second edition cover!

The Brandywine Prophet
On Monday night at 6:00PM CST, the last chapter of The Brandywine Prophet will be posted on Wattpad. This is one of the most anticipated events of my life this far. I have approximately 60 dedicated readers, and I’m looking forward to hearing their thoughts on the ending.

Also, the cover is just about ready, thanks to an awesome, original sketch by a talented man named Jacob Zars. It hasn’t been perfected yet, but here’s a sneak peek:

I feel like “Jake Vander Ark’s The Brandywine Prophet” sounds a little pretentious for a self-published author who’s only made $26 bucks… but this book is my opus. (Plus, the design didn’t work with “by Jake Vander Ark,” lol.)

I hope you like it!

The Day I Wore Purple
I scanned through this book for the first time in two years. I won’t lie, it’s pretty bad. Luckily, the storyline is the best of my four books! With a little love (and the most epic ending in the history of books), my first novel is going to shine : )


That’s all for this update! If you have any questions or comments, either write them below, or email me at!

    I could probably spam this with about a million yays, but I’ll just leave it at one. YAY! :D
    And I like the new sketch for Brandywine. :)

            And that’s a good thing. I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we’re happy to support the stories we love. :) I came to Wattpad because I needed new things to read, and I definitely found that with your books. Haha, I’ll probably stalk your website forever now. ;)
