Kickstarter Has Been Delayed

Hey everyone,

It’s been a little hectic on my end. Due to things out of my control I haven’t been able to work on my writing or Kickstarter the past month and a half. Thankfully the book trailer for Kickstarter is currently being edited and the final version of Echoes of Nightmares is ready to be sent to an editor as soon as the funds are received. 

So things to do in the near future:

1. Kickstarter for DARK DAYZ: Dawn trilogy – I – Echoes of Nightmares

2. Work on A.N.G.O.N. – Forge of the Body  (A new fantasy novel)

3. Spruce up my novel adaptations of Earthbound and Final Fantasy I (For fun/practice)

So that’ that. I’m hoping to have the Kickstarter up within the next couple weeks! Stay tuned and be sure to spread the word on this blog and the Kickstarter when it’s launched.

Take care,



Dark Dayz: Dawn Saga Book I – Echoes of Nightmares

This is my first post on my new official blog for all the writings of myself, author Jake A. Strife.

My current book project: Echoes of Nightmares is the first book in the Dawn Saga of Dark Dayz.

This is a urban fantasy/YA novel.

When a group of teens gather in a midwestern town, terrifying events occur. Creatures from the depths of the lowest darkness begin appearing wherever they go, along with frightening men and women in dark robes. One thing links these six youths… all of the above wants them dead. Will they learn to put aside their differences in order to survive? Can they fight back and protect their town, or is the evil rooted too deeply within?

In the coming days I will launch a Kickstarter project to self-publish this novel. The Kickstarter campaign will cover everything from professional editing to cover art and beyond.

If you’re interested, take a chance and follow this blog, and delve into the world of Dark Dayz.

Thanks in advance.Image
