Rob Wells is branching out into Indie publishing with his forthcoming novel Airships of Camelot! I think this is a great thing — as the industry changes, I think many professional authors will have fingers in various kinds of publishing and writing pies.
I’ve read this book, and I love it. It’s a post-apocalyptic helium-punk retelling of the rise of young Arthur to kinghood, complete with mech warriors and airships. It’s in that plot- and character-driven space that is often labeled and sold as YA, but finds lots of adult readers, too.
So I welcome Rob to career in multiple markets, and I invite you to go check out the Indiegogo page. I’ve contributed, and I invite you to pitch in, too.
