JOIN PROJECT BOOKWORM'S FIRST TITLE

Author: Jillian Plomin

Working Project Title: Legends of Gaeltach

Legends of Gaeltach is a planned four-book series with the first book already in the drafting stage. The first section was released as an NFT on the Cardano blockchain on February 25th, 2022.  


The book is still being written - you can help craft the story as it unfolds.

As each chapter is finished, it will be released as its own NFT, including an Audiobook and Kindle-compatible ebook version embedded in the token. We are releasing no more than 500 of each chapter token.

Audiobook can be played in the Eternl wallet.

Synopsis:

Ryan and Erica are typical high school students—or so they think. They have hobbies and homework and friends, and are generally normal siblings. But one October evening, they find a curious object that rips them from their cozy suburban home into a world of rebels, royals, legends, and swords.

​​

The pair now have to find their way back from the strange land of Aulmagne, but in doing so they ignite chaos and rebellion in the Aulmagnian people, upsetting the tyrannical rule of  Chancellor Ulrich. Will Ryan and Erica ever make it home, or are they trapped in this world forever?

​​

Prologue

When the world was newborn and the sun kissed its face for the first time, a tree grew where its fiery lips had touched. That tree grew, and as it grew its trunk split in twain. In time, the tree began to produce fruit. From the trunk that had grown eastward, a sweet, fleshy, sunset-orange fruit ripened. The western trunk bore a firm, crisp, violet fruit. After the first full turning of the world, the fruits fell.

But before the first orange fruit touched the ground it transformed into a woman, tall and beautiful. At the very same moment a purple fruit fell, changing into a young man, solid and strong. They knew at once that they were sister and brother, and they called themselves Orla and Baz.

Together they gathered the rest of the fruit into their flowing robes. When all the orange and purple fruits were collected, they breathed on them one by one, and as they did so, each fruit became a new creature. Some became men and women like themselves, though not quite as large or beautiful as themselves. And some became animals. Lions, falcons and doves, rabbits, bears, fish of all kinds, wolves, horses, goats, deer, and all manner of insects were given life and named by the twins Baz and Orla.

HOW PROJECT BOOKWORM WORKS

 

HOW TO GET A BOOK

All titles we publish are released in serial format, releasing one chapter per Epoch.


A new chapter "sneak peak" token will be available each Epoch via the Cardano token vending machines (currently DripDropz and vm.AdaSeal.eu).  Read it to decide if you want to mint the next chapter, or not.

To receive the "full chapter" token, send 3 ADA to the proper minting address, above.  You will receive 1.5 ADA back, along with the full chapter.

Each chapter has a different "minting address."

CAN I BRING MY BOOK TO PROJECT BOOKWORM?

Yes!


Project Bookworm is excited to work with new authors.  Using Cardano blockchain technology, we can provide publishing opportunities for as yet unknown writers. We connect interested readers with authors who are wiling to share the intimate process of writing with the community.  

If you are a writer who is interested in joining, contact us.
