Cover A Reveal!
The Story of Hard Bank Left
HBL started off as a small RP
between my then-boyfriend/now-husband over text messaging. After a
while, it just sat there, the potential of it eating away at me. One
day, last June, I came back to it and began writing again. That small RP
turned into a rich and diverse story about fighting for freedom and
preserving your humanity. It's a story of betrayal and secrets and
hidden agendas. A story of love and hope and standing up for what's
right. Above all, it's a story about family.
have connections with published authors, editors, artists, and printing
organizations to help me get this book in print. I also own a book store
where the book will be available for purchase. The only hang up is
actually getting the book through the final steps of the publishing
process to get it into your hands. Here's the break down of where your
money will be going:
$400 - Cover Design
$3500 - Editing/Creative Consolting
$1100 - ISBN and Printing of books
$2000 - Rewards
$1000 - Featured Artists
$1000 - Making a kick-awesome book trailer to draw in readers
$1000 - Meeting you at Conventions
WANT MORE THAN ONE REWARD? : Simply pick one reward by clicking
on it, but pledge the amount of money totaling whatever rewards you
want. After the campaign ends, we'll send a message to you confirming
that you got more than one item.
Risks and challenges
The difficulties I can easily see us facing is that it takes me longer to edit than I originally anticipate. The actual printing process itself is very fluid, it's the pre-production where we meet snags. For instance, writing in those who have selected that particular reward, may take some doing.
It may also be that my editor takes longer on the editing process due to her having a baby (seriously people, this could happen) in which case I will need to take the time to find and work with another editor.
Once we get funded, I may run into the problem of putting together the rewards consuming a lot of my time. I may also get distracted with running my book store. Chances are, delays will happen, they always do on a project of this scale. But rest assured, you will be justly rewarded for your due diligence.
If (and most certainly when) these challenges arise, I intent to enlist the help of family, friends, and my local community to help me get back on track and get this book, as well as the paraphernalia, into your hands as quickly as we can.
