The Synarchy Series – A Science Fiction Series Written by Crystal Storm

Shocking yet hopeful, the Synarchy Series slowly unravels the tightly laced reality we’ve created for ourselves. Blending the metaphysical with conspiracy, fact with fiction, author Crystal Storm exposes a world that will force you to rethink everything you believe. The knowledge within provokes the question: do you really want to know?

A lifetime ago, mob boss Stefano Vasco Terenzio saw one way to ensure his family betrayed an  unbeatable enemy – walking into a bullet. A generation later, what started with one man’s ego determines the fate of the whole word. For centuries The Brotherhood and their Gods, the Anunnaki, hid in plain sight. For centuries they lied, sacrificed man by the thousands, manipulated humanity into their service, and they will stop at nothing to keep their control of planet Earth. As the clock ticks closer to the winter solstice, the day Earth must be freed or remain enslaved forever, secrets emerge which challenge the core of everything you think you believe. A team of scientists must make sense out of the fantastical, and the tenuous link holding together the one family that can free humankind to save itself, shatters.

Campaign Goal: $1,200

Are you ready to immerse yourself in this scifi universe, with all the bells and whistles that are only available through a crowdfunding campaign? I hope so. Here we go.

I opted to be an indie author because I knew I brought the same level of professionalism and quality to my novels as any traditional publishing house. And, I wanted complete control over the creative process from start to finish so I can bring it directly to wonderful people like you.

With Operation Synarchy crowdfunding initiative, I’m offering special, limited editions for all the wonderful book geeks and supportive fans out there. The more we hit our stretch goals, the more I will bring this universe to life – not just on paper, but through art, audio drama, and one day soon, you’ll watch The Synarchy Series on your TV screen.

By the way, every backer’s name will be included in the back of Synarchy Book 3! (est. Fall 2020)

The very first goals of Operation Synarchy is admittedly modest- get both books in print. Because of your support, you have the opportunity receive limited, special edition hardcover copies that will never be sold elsewhere. These are true collectors editions. Even the eBooks offered during Operation Synarchy are collectors editions. These are only offered for a limited time. January 3rd, 2020 is the cut off date. So tell your friends before time runs out![/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”10583″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]

The Terenzio Family Brought to Visual Life

I’m very excited about this goal. The three main characters of the Synarchy Series: Vasco, Simone and Lucien, will be brought to portrait life in full color. Every single backer no matter the level of your pledge will receive their own digital copy AND a very special dossier with information on the triplets never shared before.

If you’ve ordered the Special Edition Hardcover copy of Synarchy these will be added to the back of the book![/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”10585″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]

Super Scifi – The Galactic Federation

There is a scene in The Ascension where you meet the Galactic Federation. This is a group of six alien races hold a very important meeting regarding planet Earth. These meeting takes place on a spaceship, or as we call them in Synarchy, Interdimensional Traveling Vessels. Once we hit this goal, I will have artwork commissioned to bring that scene and all six races to life. Every single pledge will get a copy of this scene, which will include all the races, and the interdimensional traveling vessel.

If you’ve ordered the Special Edition Hardcover copy of Synarchy these will be added to the back of the book![/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”10586″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]

The Synarchy Series Acted in your Ears

If you’re an audiobook lover, we’re going to take it one step farther. Once we hit this goal I will hire voice actors to produce a high quality audiobook of the Synarchy Series. Each character will be uniquely voiced and the series will include custom music and sound effects!

Every pledge receives a thank you and their name read at the end of the audio drama. Once the list of voice actors is assembled you can request which actor reads your name![/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”10587″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]

Risks and challenges

One of the risks any creative person runs into is late delivery. As a backer, there is nothing more annoying than backing a project, then waiting to receive your product. Both novels are 100% finished. In fact, regular eBooks go on sale December 21st, 2019.

As soon as the campaign ends, I have the books printed, sign them, and mail them out to backers. The Book 1 audiobook will be finished recording this month. The Book 2 Audiobook begins production January and will finished by the end of the month. I don’t anticipate any delays in printing provided we reach our first goal.

Why Not Kickstarter?

There’s a very easy to answer to that question. Number one, I’m a web designer and the page you see here is pretty similar to the page you get with Kickstarter. Number two, Kickstarter takes 10% of your money, and that’s 10% I could use to back the project. When you can get rid of middle men, get rid of middle men!

What if the project doesn’t reach it’s goal?

Then unfortunately I wait longer to go wide (sell my books in print). If we don’t reach our goal, everyone who ordered hardcover editions of the Synarchy Series will receive their money back. Digital copies will be delivered as is. I think we’ll reach our goals and I’ll be update this page daily with our progress!

What if I can’t afford the pledge tiers? Can I still make a donation towards the project?

Yes! Visit This Page to make any donation amount you’d like. Make sure to leave me a note in the comments to let me know this donation is towards Operation Synarchy and I’ll make sure you get a shout-out with everyone else in book 3.

Can I pledge multiple times for any tier?

For example if you wanted to buy the Digital Packs or Special Edition HCs for more than one member of your family you can do that. Follow these instructions.
