About

$1,590

I'm taking my writing career in an additional direction and coming to you to help me make it a reality.

Writing under the pen name of Meg Chambers, I am on a quest to branch out from the cozy and soft-boiled mystery novels I usually write to produce a series of fun and sexy romance novellas.

The first novella in the series is RUNNING WILDE, which is in the final editing phase, with its release planned for April 2015. The second novella has a working title of WILDE WOMEN and is expected to be released in late fall 2015.

Synopsis of RUNNING WILDE: Two years after she and her husband of almost thirty years split, fifty-year-old Winnie Wilde is finally divorced and ready to rediscover the woman buried inside her. Little did she know her journey would begin in the arms of Ben Church, a contractor nearly half her age with the right tools to unleash Winnie’s potential.

Synopsis of WILDE WOMEN: On a visit to her widowed mother in Florida, Winnie discovers that the apple didn’t fall far from the tree when it comes to the Wilde women.

Series overview: At the moment, I have plot outlines for up to six Winnie Wilde novellas and plan on releasing them about every six months. They will be available only on Amazon through the Kindle format. If the series is popular, down the road I may consider bundling three novellas together in a print edition.

The $1,000 pledge goal is the bare bones I anticipate needing to cover the cost of launching RUNNING WILDE, including a professional cover, editing and proofreading, bookmarks, etc. Any funds remaining or raised in excess of $1,000 will be used toward WILDE WOMEN and future books in the series.

Risks and challenges

I anticipate no setbacks or fulfillment issues with the launch of this new series. The first novella is almost in final form and the second will be started in spring 2015. With nearly twenty novels already under my belt, I am very experienced with managing deadlines and book promotion.
