And the more views we can get on this blog, the better... As I mentioned above, I have had about 9200 page views in the 99 post history of my meager hobby blog. If we reach 10,000 page views before the clock has run out on my Kickstarter (ends May 1st) than I will post an exclusive coupon code on this blog that gets you, the reader, a free download of my latest novella, The Prince of Luster and Decay! Prince is an individual story of fantasy warfare set 10 years before the novel takes place and it introduces a couple minor characters from Tarnish. And if we can drum up about 800 page views to this blog in under a month, you'll all get access to this 100-page novella for free! So spread the word, my friends, spread the word!

Post 100: Kickstarter Active!
POST 100: This is the 100th post on Brink's Chaos Theory! And what better way to celebrate this landmark than with my first novel ready for publishing! But I am also at about 9200 page views on this blog and I have another celebration in mind, discussed at the end of this important news bulletin...
At long last, I have launched my Tarnish Kickstarter!
Tarnish is a fantasy novel about a 16 year old, small-town kid who ventures out into the greater world to save his hometown and become a hero like his father. There’s sword play, swamp monsters, a gang of thieves, some romance and betrayal, and lots of fun!
Kickstarter is a website dedicated to helping artists, writers, film makers, musicians and more get their creative projects funded and off the ground. I’m specifically hoping to hire a professional editor and fantasy painter for the cover, as well as get some printing and marketing done. In return, I’ve set up some rewards that donors will receive once the book is finished. You (or they) can contribute as little as a dollar (cuz every dollar counts) or as much as that little angel on your shoulder will allow!

I was going to try and describe what Kickstarter is all about but they obviously do a better job than I do. Please check them out, check out my K.S. project Tarnish, and most importantly, spread the word! If you enjoy fantasy epics, underdog stories, or just want to be a part of the novel's future (and mine), just check out the site. And whether you wish to donate or not, please pass this along via email, Facebook, chatting at the hair salon, to the your coworkers, shipmates, fellow patrons in the bar, wherever! The more people we can reach and make aware, the more who may wish to join us in bringing this novel to life!
I THANK YOU for your time, consideration, and/or generosity in these maters.
J. D. Brink
