Exaulta Kickstarter Campaign

     Ok, I have some very exciting news to share with you guys. I am going to be launching a campaign to help me raise funding to finish and publish Exaulta. This campaign is going to be hosted over on kickstarter.com. That's right I'm taking steps to get my book out there! Finally!
     I'm also including The Vengeance of Verona, A Guardian Novella and Slipped, A Novella in this campaign. So if I succeed in this campaign, you'll be getting two novellas and one full novel from me. How exciting is that!?!?!
     By supporting me in this campaign you will not only be helping me make these works available to the world, but you have the opportunity to get some awesome signed stuff from me. I cannot wait to launch this campaign. I was going to start it today, but I have to wait for my bank account to be verified first and that could take about a week. So in the mean time. I thought I would let you guys in on the project and let you know how very excited I am to finally have a chance to get my books in your hands.

UPDATE: The campaign has LAUNCHED! Check out the campaign here!

What is Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is a website where artists can go to get funding for their projects. Anyone with an idea can start a campaign. There you will find game creators, writers, filmmakers, sculptors, and all that good stuff.
How does it work?
It's simple. I've set my goal for $5,000 and I have 45 days to reach the goal. If you want to help me get published, than you can choose to make a pledge of any dollar amount that you wish. If I reach or pass my goal by the 45 day marker, than I receive my funding and set to work on completing my project. If I don't reach the goal, than nothing happens. No one loses any money and I don't get my funding.
Rewards?
While hosting Kickstarter campaigns one has to have rewards that can be offered to pledgers. For example: Right now I have a reward set for $25. If you pledged $25, you get a an ebook copy of THE VENGEANCE OF VERONA, A Guardian Novella. Plus you get everything featured in the reward levels before it. Do you need to select a reward? No, you can just donate money to support my project.

Thank you:

  1.  With Exaulta I am going to submit to agents and see what happens. If it doesn't get picked up than I will self publish. This campaign is to help pay for all of that, plus to help pay for self publishing my novellas.

  4. Well done! I was wondering why you're planning to self-publish rather than go the traditional route though?

  5. Good stuff, I wish you all the best. :) Do you read a lot of self-published stuff? I've been reading a little myself and the lack of quality control in some cases really bothers me.

  10. I have read some self published and some indie, but it's gotta be well written before I'll pick it up. I made that mistake with Switched. Plus a lot of self pubbed books are only in ebook form and I don't have an ereader, so that makes it tough. I'll be posting my first chapter to Exaulta in the next day or two. So you'll be able to read it and see if it's your thing or not.

Then she heard it; the thudding of swift moving, heavy paws. She tapped the reins against Charming’s neck. He spun on his heel as Belle drew one of her revolvers... Find out what happens next in THE BEAST: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Z5LOJVA
