Why start up the Tails of Ae'tann by crowdfunding?
The concept of the Tails of Ae'tann was brought to the World via a Kickstarter project in mid-2016.We felt that this was an ideal way where we could both launch the Ae’tann universe and immediately foster a community of fans. To have such a community is important for us, as we want to engage with the community, for some advice and feedback on our future plans.
It also allows us to have full control of the creative process, timing, and freedom to develop the characters and story in the best way possible in support of those future plans.
Why illustrated editions?
Stories in the Ae’tann universe were always meant to be shared both in word and pictures. We have always felt that for our stories, this will help raise the enjoyment level of the readers. The art is divided into cinematic spreads and individual illustrations. At present, the spreads and individual illustrations are, in total, close to a hundred separate pictures.
Are there e-books planned?
Yes! We will be posting links on where you can get the ebooks in our SHOP shortly.
Who is the author Jeren Jordin Oliver?
Someone who really hopes that you like the Tails of Ae’tann! Jeren is hard at work on the next two Tails of Ae’tann projects, an anthology of short stories and collected art set in the Ae’tann universe, and the next book in the continuing adventures of Red, Olive and Ollie. It should be said that the name is a pseudonym. Jeren would rather the story be the focus, not the author. Both Jeren and the Five-A Alliance sincerely hope that you enjoy this story that they never expected, but felt compelled, to develop and write.

Can I use the art from your website?
It’s very sweet that you would think it’s nice enough that you would want to do so, but do read the TERMS AND CONDITIONS section of the site. The rights to the art and writing, in fact, all the works from the Ae’tann universe, are licensed from The Five-A Alliance Limited.
