The Novel

In Jessica Kaye's middle-grade novel Rapunzel, the fabled long-haired girl cuts her hair and leaves her tower to search for her lost prince. Along the way, she finds the life she always wanted—and ends up saving a kingdom in the process.

But what was the prince doing while Rapunzel was rescuing herself? The parallel novel Rapunzel's Prince tells us all about his adventures escaping rebellions and dodging assassins as he searches the world for the girl with impossibly long hair.

The Money

The money will go toward paying for tools for the cover art, hiring an editor, a writer's group subscription, and printing costs.

Stretch Goals!

I would absolutely love to include illustrations in this book... and now that it's funded, let's talk about it!

If we can reach $700, I'll illustrate all the chapter headings.

At $900, I'll include illustrations throughout the story.

Risks and challenges

I've already self-published one novel, so I've done this before. This book is completely outlined, the story all laid out--I just have to finish writing it. To reassure my backers of my commitment, I would update you all weekly of my progress (in word count).
