About

A story about a young girl named Cosmo who travels across the galaxy solving mysteries!

Story Summary

Cosmic Callisto Caprica, or Cosmo for short, is having the night of her life. On the same evening that she receives her junior detective's license, Cosmo is assigned to her first case. For her first case Cosmo will travel to the luxury space station The Titian to investigate a robbery. The luxurious rings of Saturn have been stolen! The owner of the rings, Princess Rhea, a Martian of royal decent, desperately needs her rings back. Cosmo will have to follow all of the clues in order to solve her first case.

Cost

Why am I asking for $3,000 dollars? I'll tell you why. $2,000 will go towards purchasing a publishing package from Lulu.com. This package will provide me many different things, but the most important items in this package are the ISBN Assignment number and copyright registration. The remaining $1000 will cover the cost of editing, art and e-book formatting.

Risks and challenges

I love to write. It's something that I have done since I could hold a pencil. However I'm new to to the world of publishing. Is it possible that I could make a mistake? Yes. Is it possible that I could beat the odds and produce a beautiful novella? That's possible as well.
