There are so many Kickstarter campaigns out there. Some probably won’t get funded, while others show potential. Camp Myth is one that falls into the potential success category, as Chris Lewis Carter hopes to make his collaborative young adult novel a reality.
Have you ever wanted to ride a Pegasus? Fish for a Kraken? How about tame a pet Phoenix, or play chess with a Sphinx?
Each year, mythic children of all ages and races are invited to attend Camp Myth, a special summer camp built to teach them about the cultures and dangers of the Unseen World.
But for Felix, a young Fae with a knack for getting into trouble, it means little more than a chance to break free from his overprotective parents and enjoy a few weeks without responsibilities. That is, until a series of mysterious events turn camp life upside-down, and he accidentally stumbles upon a sinister plot to enslave all myth-kind.
Together with his cabin-mates, Argee – the planet’s dorkiest Cyclops, and Kit – an orphaned Kitsune unable to control her shape-shifting powers, Felix will meet strange new friends, earn amazing merit badges, and maybe, just maybe…
Survive until the closing ceremony!
As always, there are a number of rewards for this project, including complementary copies, and even featuring you as the main character in the story.
The concept and story hook is really interesting, especially when the backers can choose from eight races, and help move the story to the epic conclusion.
I wonder if Orem Rivendorn could make an appearance in the book as one of the counselors?
It’s certainly worth checking out!
