For a pledge of $15 or more, you will get monthly email updates on the novel's progress and an exclusive PDF copy of my upcoming e-book "Unsolicited Advice: Essays from the Trenches of Parenting" where I opine, reflect and share my experience on a variety of parenting topics, from toddler discipline to potty training, sleep training, parenting teenagers and much more. 9 children and 20 years have gone into the lessons shared in this e-book.
Pledges of $30 will earn you all previous rewards plus access to a monthly podcast where I will put my own story through The Story Grid methodology and discuss its influence on my story's development and quality.
All previous rewards plus an invitation to participate series of bi-monthly Google Hangouts where we will discuss the issues at play in the novel. Medicine, ethics, law, we will not run out of topics to dig into. Hangouts will be scheduled after my kids are in bed EST.
For a pledge of $100, I will come to talk to a group of your choosing, on a topic of your choosing. Parenting? Biomedical ethics? Family finances? Marriage? Work/family balance? The writing process? What will it be?! I can drive myself anywhere in the Ottawa (ON) area, otherwise, backers will cover the cost of travel and accommodations. Reward to be scheduled after March 2017.
Make an appearance in Chance: A Novel under your own name (or not)! Since Chance threads on difficult topics, I will take the time to discuss your role and the value you bring to the story to make sure it adequately represents who you are and what you believe in. I will keep you updated on the progress of the novel and you will receive a signed printed copy of the book once it is published, along with my eternal gratitude.
