Seventh Star Press would like to thank everyone who supported the Rayden Valkyrie TV Pilot Kickstarter Campaign. After 42 days, we crossed the goal line with just 2 hours to go! A dramatic finish but a wonderful outcome! We look forward to bringing you a great TV pilot and introducing a wonderful, inspiring heroine for the screen!
With exclusive memorabilia, credits, and events and experiences offered in the reward levels, we have a great new campaign to support the creation of a TV Pilot based upon the character Rayden Valkyrie from Stephen ZImmer's novel Heart of a Lion. Yesterday, the first concept art piece of Rayden Valkyrie for the project was unveiled, from artist Jerome Sayers. This project represents a new area of activity for Seventh Star Press as well, entering the realms of original television and movie content! See the intro video and get involved in making this project happen! Just follow this link:
