So here's the deal: I'm working on book two of my fantasy series, Champion of Light. It's a lot of fun, but to get the reach (the world) I want with these books, I'm going to need help from people like you. It's going to be around 45-50 thousand words in total and I'm already 15,000 words in.
I'm not just in the business of entertaining people with my writing, I have a message I want everyone to see. A message about hope, and love, and acceptance... and the struggles we all face.
Fantasy might not be your cup of tea and I understand that, but I really need your help to keep this dream alive.
This is just one of many books I plan to write, and money or no money, I'm going to write them. It's that simple. But I need to eat eventually, and invest in advertising and editing and all the other little costs no one tells you about when they suggest you become an indie author.
Risks and challenges
I'm going to be super real with this. Writing is hard.
When you're writing fantasy as an unknown indie author, it's even harder. I love what I do and I want to keep doing it and I want the world to see what I have to say.
To do that, I really need help from people like you. Every little bit helps. Publishing the book itself is easy. I sit down next to my wife every day and open up my laptop and get to work.
The problems come around dinner time when we try to figure out what we can eat that night with no money. Writing is hard.
Before writing fantasy, I wrote erotica under the pen name Olivia Noble, and hit the NYT bestseller list with my boxset of Club Luxe books 1-4. Why don't I just do that again? Because I hated using my writing to sell cheap thrills.
Why am I mentioning it? Because I want you, my backers, to know that not only can I do this, I've done it before.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
