“Wings of the Black Eagle” Sponsorship Opportunities

By on October 17, 2016

Hello, and thank you for taking time to learn more about my new project.

After months of researching, outlining, and creating a proposal that will find traction in the market, I am really excited to only be days away from launching my new book, WINGS OF THE BLACK EAGLE.

Wings of the Black Eagle is a thriller featuring former CIA operative turned private investigator, Andrew Stone. He has to prevent World War Three by solving the bombing of an airliner – that happened in 1933. There’s a secret society at the root of the impending disaster and Stone has to go undercover to stop them terrorising the world. Stone, however, has a big problem – he had to leave the CIA after being diagnosed with PTSD, so going deep undercover is the last thing he wants to do. The exciting part, for me, is that the 1933 storyline is based on a real event – the first ever recorded act of terrorism against a commercial airliner. And it’s still unsolved.

You’re important to me and I wanted to let you know about my plans for launch. I have put up my preorder page, you can check it out at

I am already several days into the campaign to raise 250 preorders, and need your help to boost the numbers.

Why is this important?

Well, I have always self-published in eBook format. This time I’m trying something completely different. If I reach 250 preorders the book will not only be published in paperback, but it will be pitched to almost 50 publishers. This is something I cannot do alone. It requires 250 preorders for that to happen.

I hope you will consider taking advantage of one of the options available. Individual sponsorships range from $20-$100 and rewards include special mention of your support in the book, progress updates, and an invitation to the virtual book launch. Another thing to consider is that it’s risk free. If I don’t achieve the 250 preorder minimum your money is refunded 100%. The downside is that the book won’t go to print.

If you are in the position to be a potential corporate supporter, another big part of the campaign is creating momentum by securing corporate sponsorships. Corporate sponsorships range from $500-$5000 and rewards include special mention of your company in the book, exclusive video updates, one-on-one, live video chats about the book and the history of the Boeing 247 story, and on-site speaking opportunities as part of the book launch.

In either case, here’s how you can preorder:

  1. Go to the preorder page:
  2. Select a preorder support level you are most comfortable with (remember, a corporate sponsorship helps create momentum for the project in a big way)
  3. Share the link with friends, family and colleagues via word of mouth, social media, etc.

Thank you so much for all of your help and support. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it. With your help you will be getting my new book in your hands and the hands of others. Thank you for telling the world!

All the best,
