Lines in the Gravel (and 52 Other Re-Told Childhood Tales) may serve as a blueprint for passing down family values to succeeding generations through the stories we tell...and re-tell. This is my family, and these are our stories and our values, but the practice of values storying is transferable to any other family, team, non-profit, school, business, or other organization.
Risks and challenges
In setting my goals and self-imposed deadlines, I have attempted to leave enough margin for circumstances out of my control and a small enough margin to provide the impetus to finish "on time." I have done months of research on self-publishing, but I am still a first-timer. There may be parts of the process that I underestimate.
If unexpected difficulties and subsequent delays occur, I will update through my Family:Story:Legacy blog and Facebook writer page. (Even if every step of the process goes smoothly, I will be updating in both places, along with my Insider Emails.)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Kindle (exclusively for 90 days) and then other electronic formats.
Paperback, simultaneous with e-book release with success of Kickstarter campaign.
Audiobook, by popular request -- timing TBA.
Not necessarily, but it certainly changes the timing of the release of the paper copy. If the project is not funded, I will not be able to print an order of books to have on hand for signings and speaking engagements. I would still go forward with a Kindle release and a (more expensive) pay-per-copy release of the paperback edition. Initial e-book sales will determine what I will be able to afford from that point forward. All that to say that it would be a great thing for this project to be fully funded!!!
