The Dying Times is finished, but author Brian Kittrell is seeking critical support for the novel in the form of Kickstarter pledges. By offering unique rewards available only during the course of the 35-day pledge project, the author is attempting to gain support from enthusiasts around the world to help launch the project and fund advertising and publishing costs.
Everyone is taking notice of the popularity of the reinvigorated genre. The release of Resident Evil: Afterlife brought with it a $273 million dollar gain for the series, and AMC’s new original series The Walking Dead snagged a personal record for AMC to the tune of 5.3 million viewers for the pilot on Halloween, 2010, with a total viewer count of around 11 million fans viewing all airings of the episode on the premier night.
“I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: zombies are hot!” says Brian Kittrell, author of the debut novel The Dying Times. “The genre is finally seeing some real, quality love from some real players, and it’s about time.”
“The rewards offered by projects of this type must have real value for the supporters,” says Kittrell. “Many rewards offered by projects such as this are usually hard to come by or impossible to find after the project has been concluded.”
