So It's coming down to the wire!
First off, I want to thank everyone whose backed the project thus far. I really appreciate the early support.
Also, check out the new video at the bottom of the page. This is the second trailer for the book.
And lastly, I wrote this on facebook, but if you missed it, I thought I'd share the note to all my Kickstarter backers.
Thank you, thank you, you're far too kind" - Jay Z
In 2009, as many of you already know, I decided to embark on the long journey to become a writer. I know, I know, way to choose the hardest profession in the world, right? But for better or worse, this is one of those dreams I'm in for the long haul. So here I am at it again, my second novel, A Life Told From The Cloud, which I am determined to bring to the world no matter what.
If you haven't seen the facebook flood, I have put this book on Kickstarter--A website for artists and entrepreneurs to crowd fund their projects.
With a week left, I'm definitely cutting it close. If anything about the project or the art of chasing a dream resonates with you, I'd love for you to share the link, like the facebook fan page, donate a dollar, whatever you can to raise attention to the project. If you want to buy the book, that would be even better.
If you're from UCSB, it'll bring you back. If you are on facebook, it will make you want to go back to the beginning. If you are from Planet Earth, it will make you cry like that last breakup where you downed a bottle of Two-Buck Chuck and watched The Vow.
And seriously, if you donate a dollar and you need that dollar back to buy two tacos at Jack N The Box at 3:00 a.m., I will Pay Pal or Western Union that bad boy right back to you. I just need more backers to rank higher on Kickstarter! So thanks again to all the friends and family who always got my back and throw up Facebook likes when I continue to put out projects.
