About

I'm Talia Jager, the author of 8 published eBooks, co-author of 3 books, and a contributor in 3 anthologies. I'm asking for your support to put my YA books into print. The books are written and have been selling well for a couple of years. Now I'm starting to get emails and messages from schools, fans, and even parents asking for a paperback copy.

This is where your pledge comes in. To get my books into print takes ISBN numbers, an editor, formatter, and cover artist. I'd also have my cover artist design bookmarks and have some awesome swag made up for rewards. Once the books are in print, I would like to order a bunch to donate to schools, teachers, and hospitals. I take pride in my work. It takes more than typing words and uploading. I want my books to look professional so that when you read them, you want more.

What kind of books do I write?
Two kinds. YA dramas that touch on the tougher issues in life. For example: Damaged: Natalie's Story is about dating violence, Teagan's Story: Her Battle With Epilepsy is about a teen with epilepsy, If I Die Young is about a teen who needs a heart transplant, and Lost and Found is about a teen in the foster care system who has suffered abuse and addiction problems. Readers who have gone through these problems or know someone who has write in to thank me.

I also write YA fantasy because we all know that our minds need to escape reality sometimes. Secret Bloodline is my own take on vampires and The Gifted Teens Series is a trilogy - so far - and fans love it. It's about a group of teens who have powers and fight demons.

Who are my books for?
Although they are categorized as YA, they are for anyone who has ever been a teen, anyone who has ever suffered, anyone who has ever been in love, anyone who has ever just wanted to escape their own lives.
I get reviews from young and old commenting on how much they love my books. Nobody is ever too old to read YA.

Are my books any good?
I think I'm a little biased to answer this, so see for yourself. The first book in the Gifted Teens series is The Ultimate Sacrifice and is free on Amazon, iTunes, and Smashwords.

Risks and challenges

My biggest challenge is the timetable to get my books in print. These books are written and selling. I'd like to get them all in print within six months. I already have an editor, formatter, and cover artist. The risks would be that they won't have enough time in their schedule to do all eight books within six months.
