About this project

The Watchers is a dystopian novel meaning (for those without a dictionary) that it takes place in the future in an environment where the earth or humanity or both declined in some fashion. My novel is scifi where the earth is nearly depleted of natural resources and social constructs have changed significantly.  By its dystopian nature it is similar to The Terminator, The Matrix, Mad Max, Dune, Waterworld, and many more. 

Hollywood really loves this kind of movie.  Just Google “Top 100 dystopian movies” and you will be surprised how many you recognize.  A large portion of the money will fund me to go to a Hollywood pitch fest where aspiring and seasoned writers have a chance to present their idea to a panel of 6 producers.  Your generous investments will pay for my transportation from Boston, two nights in a sleazy cheap hotel, and pitch coaching.

The second part of your investment will fund advertising  in three trade magazines for librarians and book wholesalers.  The reach is 70,000 book buying professionals.

The final leg of your generous investment is to pay for a social media campaign company. They are eminently successful at what they do, and their skill goes way beyond whatever the layman would ever hope to accomplish.  

It’s a terrific novel.  It won my publisher’s Editor’s Choice award.   You can read excerpts on Amazon or order the Kindle version for four bucks.  I know you’ll like it.  It’s a good investment and your help will be appreciated on a magnanimous level!!
