    Short Story: For a $1 pledge, you'll receive a digital copy of the "Radiance" ebook when it is released. The ebook contains the 3000 word short story, plus the poem "Frozen Petals." The poem is written in-character from the perspective of "Manifestation's" protagonist, Gabriella Palladino, and it was inspired by events in the novel that are directly related to the events in the short story "Radiance." The ebook also contains a preview chapter of "Manifestation," which is planned for release in 2014.

    Pledge $25 or more About $25

    Choose Your Own Adventure: For a $25 pledge, you'll receive the short story, poem, novel preview, special thanks credit, and poetry collection, plus I will ghostwrite a short story based on criteria you provide. The short story will be from 2000-3000 words, and will follow guidelines you provide me for the plot, characters, themes, and genre. You can provide a simple request (such as "I want a story about a dragon") or a more detailed request and outline (such as giving me a description of the character you want to see, what kind of magic powers they might develop, and what sort of adventure you want them to go on). It's up to you whether you want me to follow a specific outline or if you want me to use creative freedom in sculpting the story. When the story is complete, I'll email it to you in MS Word format, and you will own all the rights to it, meaning you can post it on your blog, publish it yourself, sell it, or anything you want. You'll also be able to choose whether to credit me as the author or publish it under your own name, and if you choose the latter I will guarantee nondisclosure, meaning I will never reveal the details of the story to anyone else or tell anyone that I wrote it for you.
