Fortune Cookie is my first novel. This book will be released under my own independent publishing company, 7th Sign Publishing. I have previously released three poetry books, Blurred Vision (2011), Hindsight 20/20 (2013) and Honesty Box (2014). I am extremely excited to now explore the fiction genre of writing. I started writing this book in January of 2014 and completed it in December of that same year. Since then, I have been working feverishly to perfect the story, add depth to character developments, conceptualize the cover artwork with my graphic designer, secure the book launch release celebration venue and anything I can do to make this your new favorite novel!! 

The official release date for Fortune Cookie is November 21, 2015. However, as a backer for this project, you will receive it FIRST, before the general public!! If Fortune Cookie is marketed correctly, it not only means a successful release for my first novel (YEAH!!!) but more exposure for 7th Sign Publishing to help other authors bring their dreams to life!

Where Is Your Money Going?

I'm so glad you asked. Fortune Cookie is fully funded from a printing and publishing perspective. Your pledges will help cover two of the most important components of a successful book: Marketing and Advertising. Why are these two things so important? Exceptional marketing and advertising can be the difference between a great book only a few people know about and a great book the whole world knows about. But effective marketing and advertising does not come without a price. 

I’m also using this Kickstarter as a creative means for pre orders for the book. Why not be a part of history and receive an exclusive, limited edition version of Fortune Cookie and merchandising that will ONLY be offered here? I’ll never have another first novel again and I want to share this launch experience with YOU! You can even have your name written in the book. How cool is that?!

Who Is Cookie?

Contrary to its title, Fortune Cookie is not about making the most amazing fortune cookies you have ever tasted. Although I actually do love fortune cookies, this book is the story of a woman named Cookie. Candice “Cookie” Brighton is a young, beautiful, sexy and accomplished woman who’s at the top of her game. Cookie knows what she wants and knows even better how to get it. She has proven to be successful in corporate America, but she has not exactly had the same victories when it comes to men. She is quick to dismiss any man that does not live up to her standards.

But there is something lying underneath the surface that Cookie has been hiding for years. Now that secret is slowly creeping its way out into the light, against her own will. She’s tough on the exterior, but there’s more than meets the eye to this hard cookie. For so long, Cookie could not be cracked and now the world may see her crumble. 

Risks and challenges

With the exception of the alternate ending, this book is FINISHED! I also have all of the funding needed from a publishing aspect. But publishing this book will only be half the battle. With the help of your pledges, I’ll be able to alleviate much of the strain and expenses for promotional strategies to properly market Fortune Cookie.
