Jackpot Bloom is finished and sits at the printers waiting to be bailed out of jail.

A successful kickstarter campaign will allow us to order a run of 600 copies to be made available for direct sale. Not only will the book be sold through online entities like Lulu, Amazon and Barnes & Noble, but I will personally be hocking them at shows, conventions, websites, social media and independant retailers (several have already committed to carry the book, with more on the way).

Risks and challenges

The challenges of selling any book is that there is an incredible amount of competition. There are many other books seeking the attention of readers in nearly every genre.

JACKPOT BLOOM seeks to reach a group of book-buyers who have not been offered nearly enough options. I'm talking about "Tennis Parents." They number in the Gazillions, and every one of them would love to give a cool book about tennis to their little swingers. The trick is getting the book in front of them.
