Nobody's perfect for everyone, but everybody's perfect for someone. As the cliche goes, "Don't judge a book by its cover."
The Perfect Girl Drinks Root Beer, by Tim Cody
William--brash, wannabe lady charmer, tragically British--is absolutely convinced that his perfect girl (whoever or wherever she may be) is absolutely enamored with root beer. And as the newest part-time employee of The Soda Shoppe, what better way to find her?
Girl after girl seems to disprove his theory: Robin, Alison, Harper, their imperfections all but glaring... But as the cliche goes, "Don't judge a book by its cover."
Nobody's perfect for everyone, but everybody's perfect for someone.
A cast of nearly a dozen characters is about to live the most important two weeks of their lives.
This is a work in progress. You can find some more information about this particular project on my website: http://www.timcodywrites.com. I will begin writing in a few days, and I will try to update my blog on a weekly or fortnightly basis outlining my progress.
Where you come in:
I don't need much, just about $200 so I can acquire the rights to reprint lyrics from Leonard Cohen's song "Hallelujah." Verses of the song will bridge the overarching narrative of one chapter, to create a written montage effect. Any extra funds raised will be put toward paying my cover artist and editor for once--they will appreciate your donations as much as I will!
Beyond acquiring the rights and finally paying the talented people who help make my books possible, additional funds will be used to purchase advertising space (most likely on GoodReads) once the book is published.
One final note:
As stated above, this book is a work in progress. I'm planning on having it completely finished and published by October 2012 at the latest, which is when rewards will be sent out.
Thank you in advance to anyone who donates!
