I have a couple of exciting Narrow Roadupdates to share with you! First, The Narrow Road has been reviewed by The Dove Foundation Review Board and is now recommended family entertainment by The Dove Foundation! Here’s the review: http://www.dove.org/review/10277-the-narrow-road-a-pilgrims-progress-novel/. The mission of the Dove Foundation is “To encourage and promote the creation, production, distributionand consumption of wholesome family entertainment.” You can learn more about the Dove Foundation here: http://www.dove.org/
Second, The Narrow Road novel is now available for sale to the public in Hardcover and Paperback editions, with eBooks to follow in the near future! Currently for sale on Lulu.com, the novel will soon be available to purchase through most major online book retailers, like Amazon.com and BN.com. Here are links to the current sales pages:
Thank you so much for your continued support! If you’ve read and enjoyed The Narrow Road, please consider taking the time to rate and review the novel on Lulu.com. If you haven’t enjoyed the novel, please don’t feel obligated.
Thanks to our Kickstarter campaign and support surrounding it, we’ve already sold more than 200 copies of the novel. Please spread the word and share the product links to help us sell even more books in order help us make The Narrow Road movie a reality.
In 30-days we raised a grand total of $16,132 (108% of our goal) from 120 backers, our campaign was shared over 1,500 times on Facebook and even more on Twitter, and our campaign video was viewed over 1,000 times. We couldn’t have done this without each and every one of you, and we won’t forget that.
Thank you so much for your support during Launch Week! Because of YOUR help, as of today we’ve raised almost $5,800, close to 40% of our goal, our project video has been viewed 650 times, and our Kickstarter page has been shared almost 1,000 times on Facebook. There’s no way we could do this without all of you and your willingness to share in the success of this novel (and someday hopefully, the movie). We won’t forget that.
Thank you so much if you’ve backed the project or shared it with your networks. If you’re new to the project or haven’t yet pledged support or shared our page, please consider doing so. With your help, we’re looking forward to an even stronger second week.
Due to creative differences between the Narrow Road novel co-author/publisher and the Narrow Road creative team, the novel release will be delayed while Erik Yeager (screenwriter and producer) completes writing work on the novel alone and seeks out a new publishing deal. We apologize for the delay as we seek to release the best possible product, and expect only a slight delay with an estimated completion date of early-mid December.
Thank you for your patience and continued support.
The Narrow Road team is thrilled to announce that Chris Witt, editor of the 2010 Academy Award-nominated short film, Kavi, has agreed to terms to join the Narrow Road team as Editor!
Chris is an acclaimed motion picture editor residing in Los Angeles, California. His exceptional work has been recognized with many awards and nominations worldwide, which includes Kavi (2009), a short film about modern slavery that earned Chris and the Kavi team a 2010 Academy Award Nomination. Other noteworthy projects include the short film, The Butterfly Circus (2009), an Internet sensation co-starring our own Doug Jones and the recipient of the 2010 Clint Eastwood Filmmaker Award, and many other awards that you can read about on Chris’ website.
We’re very excited to have Chris on our team and feel confident that his involvement will help to further demonstrate the merits of a film that can attract such acclaimed talent.
