About this project

After writing and traditionally publishing 12 books, I have decided to release a romantic suspense as an e-book and print on demand. The book has been written, edited, and designed, and is available for sale now on Amazon or as an e-book for the Nook. However, reaching potential readers takes time and money. This funding will help support those efforts, allowing me to spend time on marketing outreach, pay for books to send to reviewers, and arrange appropriate, inexpensive ads, such as sponsoring the "book of the day" on the Kindle forums--while working on my next novel.

    Pledge $50 or more About $50

    Name a character in one of my future books! You can use your name or the name of a friend. Alternately, promote your own book, magazine, game, etc. -- I'll work it into the story. The first three people to pledge will have their name/title worked into my current work in progress. Depending on demand, additional pledges may need to go in future books. If you're using the name of a child, I will work it into my next book for young people.
