About this project
Be there when the ogre dung hits the fan in part two of this fast-paced, ship-worthy fantasy series.
I never intended PRINCESS OF THORNS to be a stand alone novel. There are so many horrible wonderful exciting awful things getting ready to happen to our heroes and heroines--ogres coming from across the Winter Sea to take back the city, an evil father plotting to kill the lone son to escape his curse, a sister trying to free her brothers from their feathers, while finding true love along the way...
And of course ROMANCE and FIGHTING and MAGIC and some unexpected twists and turns. Basically, I am so into Aurora and Niklaas and I would love to write you another story about their continuing adventures. I hope we can make that happen together!
WHY NOT SELL THE SEQUEL TO A PUBLISHER?
To be blunt, my sales have not been strong enough for a traditional publisher to take a chance on a sequel. But where they need to sell tens of thousands of books to consider a book a success, with self-publishing, I only need about 1000 excited readers to give this project the go ahead. I simply want to cover my expenses writing books I love for excited readers like you.
LET'S TALK MONEY: Why 10,500 you ask? 5% will go to cover the Kickstarter funding fee, then 2-3 thousand will go to cover editorial expenses and cover design. The remaining 7 thousand will be enough to cover mortgage, groceries, and gas for my family during the three months it will take me to write the book. This number is still less than half of what I was paid to write PRINCESS for my former publisher. But I'm not trying get rich. I just want to be able to finish this story, a story I love, and continue to write Young Adult stories for you.
WHY $10 FOR AN EBOOK WOMAN?: I won't be charging $10 for the ebook when it releases. I believe that's too high a price for a digital book. But $10 is the sweet spot at which I think we'll have a chance of hitting this goal together so I can put the sequel into my publishing schedule for 2015. I hope the bonuses included in the $10 package will help you feel like you're getting your money's worth, but as BONUS, if we exceed our goal and make it to $15,000.00, every $10 donor will also receive a free download of the first four installments in the newly revised Megan Berry Zombie Settler series, which will be re-releasing as a serial romance in 2015 ($6 value).
What happens if this doesn't fund?
Then there will be no sequel or new books and I will concentrate on re-publishing my backlist.
Risks and challenges
Completing a novel is never easy, even if you've done it many times before. But I've been a full time writer for nearly a decade under various pen names. In the past year, I've self-published ten romance novels under yet ANOTHER pen name, all of which have sold well and have been well-received by reviewers.
I'm well-qualified and have a team of editors, copy-editors, proofers, and cover designers in place to make sure the finished product is professionally presented.
I'm not guaranteeing you'll like the final product--I'll be serving the story, not any particular set of reviewers--but it will be a complete story, delivered on time (barring my untimely demise), and presented in a professional manner. And there will be kissing in it. Lots of kissing. And also fighting. And magic. And new bad guys. And more kissing.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
