About

Since the release of my debut novel “10 Minutes Past Too Late”, I’ve been asked by many fans if I’ve written another book.  I’m so proud to announce that I recently completed the manuscript for my sophomoric novel “The Beautiful Ones.”

I am eager to get my “baby” into the hands of the readers who want them… and here is where Kickstarter and You can help me to continue my dream.

After a writer completes a manuscript they partner with an editor.  That editor takes the manuscript and turns it into a polished product ready for printing.  I have chosen one of the best editors in the business today; Laurie Rosin.  As well as wonderful publishing company that will cover all of my publishing needs.

I have set a goal for Kickstarter that will ensure the completion of my second novel.  This is what the money will go towards:

  • Editing
  • Cover design
  • Publication (e-book and print run)
  • Getting pre-ordered copies in the hands of the pledges
  • Reward Packages

Anything additional will go towards

  • additional rewards
  • an audio book
  • a marketing campaign
  • a mini book tour

Kickstarter funding is an all or nothing concept.  I need to raise my entire goal or I will receive nothing.

I've Done This Before!

My Debut Novel
My Debut Novel

I have done it once already with my debut novel “10 Minutes Past Too Late.”  I have learned all the ins and outs of the self-publishing game.  And I will apply this knowledge so that I can have a well-written, professionally edited, polished project to deliver to readers.

“The Beautiful Ones” was a labor of love for me.My growth as a writer has been simply amazing.  The raw emotion of these characters, transferred into words on the pages, has left me the author…simply in awe.

It pays homage to my hometown Brooklyn, NY and is also reminiscent of my senior year in high school, and the memorable summer after graduation.

When will it be released?

If my goal is met the book will be in your hands the latter part of 2013.

Thank You

To all of you that participate, I am deeply grateful in your confidence in me as a writer.

I am starting my own little movement.If you are one of “The Beautiful Ones,” please support and join me in getting the word about this soon-to-be talked about novel!

Risks and challenges

Since this book is self-published it’s on my time-lime and not at will of a major publishing company. Therefore, I don’t anticipate any risks. The manuscript is already completed, editor and publishing company selected, and my tenacity to get this book into the hands of readers will be relentless. I am determined to get “The Beautiful Ones” published and will turn any unforeseen risks/challenges to an opportunity for success.
