About this project

'Chosen' is the second book of The Rebecca Ashley Mystery Series. You can find the first book 'Twist' at http://www.amazon.com/TWIST-Rebecca-Ashley-Mystery-Ashely/dp/0989975118/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1383341440&sr=1-1&keywords=twist+adrienne+reiter

I will be printing 'Chosen' the same way I printed 'Twist'. Through Creatspace. It will be available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

'Chosen' continues to follow unlikely sleuth, artist Rebecca Ashley, through another mystery set in the criminal underworld of the San Francisco Bay Area. Only this time, instead of art and artifact smuggling, Rebecca finds herself wading through the murky history of con artists, thieves and grifters who were all once the leaders of some of Northern California's most notorious cults.  

This project is ready to move forward as soon as I receive funding. I have lined up a professional cover artist to design 'Chosen's cover, a graphic artist to format according to the printers specifications and a professional line and content editor. 

I still owe money to my editor for her work on 'Twist' and although she is in no hurry to collect I would like to pay her before asking her to start on the next project of 'Chosen'. I've calculated $4,010 to be the magic number to get 'Chosen' out into the hands of readers. I would like to see it in it's final stages by Christmas.

Risks and challenges

Self publishing is a lot of work. You have to be your own marketing team, publishing company and give your product the final approval. As you can see from my first book 'TWIST' I've been tried by, tested by and survived the self publishing meat grinder.

The biggest obstacle I face during the writing process is writers block. I've already completed the first draft of 'Chosen' making writers block a non issue.

Once the final product is on my editor's desk the biggest risk is her being unable to get to it due to some unforeseen catastrophe. That would put a delay on 'Chosen's publication but I do have BETA readers on call in case such a tragedy arises.
