It’s finally time to get this train going!!!
This Saturday I’m launching my Kickstarter Campaign to fund editing and publishing book 1 of THE SHADOWS: Fire’s Hope. It will last until the end of the first week in September, and I’ve got a lot of big plans for this coming month!
I’ve handed my book over to my betas to finish the self-edit, then I have to implement those changes, by September when I need $2,000 for a professional edit. In the mean time I’m going to be spreading the word like crazy! So I need your help! Writing is my life and THE SHADOWS is very near and dear to me. If 200 people give $10, or if everyone gave $25 it would only take 80 pledges to fund me enough for editing. But I’ve got more than just a copy of Fire’s Hope for you, I have a whole lineup of goodies for people who are willing to give more, including exclusive prints and artwork!
Everyone who donates will receive a signed copy of TS:Fire’s Hope, and if you donate $25 or more, prepare for the author to dump all her love on you!
So What Happens after the Kickstarter?
In September I am going to send off my manuscript to editors at Lulu.com. I estimate this last editing process will take 2-3 months and then it’s a matter of uploading the file, and hitting the publish button on Lulu. THE SHADOWS: Fire’s Hope will be published before Christmas! As soon as it’s published I will order all the rewards and package them up to send out to everyone who donates!
Kickstarter is an all or nothing program. When you donate, it will not immediately charge you until the end of the campaign, and if I don’t get completely funded, you won’t be charged anything. I plan to launch the campaign Saturday, July 22!
I’m getting so excited for my books to finally be in print and this is the first big step to getting my writing published that I’ve been waiting for since 2010! Are you ready? Let’s do this!
