Hey, Everybody!

Just got the completely fantastic news that on Friday night, March 13th, I’ll be showcasing my Kickstarter project, “The Codex Lacrimae ⎪An Epic Fantasy by A.J. Carlisle” (http://kck.st/1KRP10j) in a live presentation at the Denver “Off Center at the Jones Theater!” I’m still in shock and overwhelmed surprise, but with only 9 working days left until the event, I wanted to let you know asap!

So, if you’re in Denver next Friday (or know of anyone interested in patronizing the arts and an epic fantasy writer), please buy a ticket and spread the word! Phone number is 303-893-4100 http://www.denvercenter.org/shows/specific-series/Get?Id=378bd977-cdec-68a4-921b-ff0e004d5814

A little background:  I’m now just a bit over two weeks into a Kickstarter project to fund the line-editing and publishing costs of my epic fantasy trilogy, “The Codex Lacrimae.” (Details can be found at the link here: http://kck.st/1KRP10j

The Off Center at the Jones Theatre http://denvercenter.org/about-us/off-center-at-the-jones has been in operation for about four years, and is a part of the Denver Center for Performing Arts (http://denvercenter.org). The Off Center venue is devoted to theatrical testing of new ideas and experiences that enhance traditional DCPA programs.

Last week, Charlie Miller, one of the curators of Off Center, liked what he saw on my Kickstarter page while he looked at the over 65 “live” Colorado Kickstarter projects. After sending an official invitation to participate, he gave me a call on Friday and let me know that the “Kick-Off Cabaret” event will feature 8 projects, and that The Codex Lacrimae is the only work of fiction or literature! I was blown away and so appreciative of Charlie’s invitation.

Check it out: My Project was a Kickstarter “Staff Pick” and “New & Notable Selection” for February 2015!

As you can imagine, this is an amazing opportunity for me to get the word out about my epic fantasy novel, and I especially appreciate the fact that the invitation from the DCPA came shortly after my project was chosen as a “Kickstarter Staff Pic.” I’m honored to participate as a local creator in the Denver area, and thank Charlie Miller and the powers-that-be at the Off Center for selecting me.

The event takes place @ The Jones at the corner of Speer and Arapahoe. Bar @ 7:30pm | Show @ 8pm. KICK-OFF CABARET is presented by Off-Center, the theatrical testing center for the Denver Center of the Performing Arts. Off-Center’s shows are less traditional, less formal, and a little OFF.

So, again, if you’re in Denver next Friday (or know of anyone interested in patronizing the arts and an epic fantasy writer), please buy a ticket and spread the word! Phone number is 303-893-4100 http://www.denvercenter.org/shows/specific-series/Get?Id=378bd977-cdec-68a4-921b-ff0e004d5814

Thanks for taking the time to visit, and why don’t you go take a look at my Kickstarter site for The Codex Lacrimae? Pledges and rewards start at only $10, and I’m really proud of the story … be part of a new kind of epic fantasy! http://kck.st/1KRP10j

This novel is a work of passion that’s been 25+ years in the making, and I’d deeply appreciate your support in helping make my publishing dream a reality!

All my best,

A.J.
