About this project

HAPPY iFAMILY...
I'm Lisa. Meet Maggie (my iPod Touch), Homer (iPod Classic), and Bart (iPod nano).

When I first received my iPod touch, I was overwhelmed by what it could do. For a while, I just did the usual: played games, looked up restaurants to eat at, use the google map to find a chiropractor, etc.

Then I realized how much time I wasted just commuting (bus, subway, train...) and decided to use that iPod for something far more productive: Writing a book.

MY iPROJECT

At 50,000 words, that small goal has become a reality. If you want to read the small blog I keep as the process goes along, please visit http://theipodx.blogspot.com.

Now I strive to publish this book. If you decide to back this project, here is what your money will go towards:

- A photographer for the front/back jacket
- Proofreading, binding, cover designing and publishing services (done by a POD company such as iUniverse or Wheatmark).
- Promotional work (sending advance copies to be reviewed, readings in bookstores, contacting independent and mainstream bookstores to convince them to carry the book).

WHAT iWRITE ABOUT

"Bricked" is a novella starring a twenty-year old college student in New York. As she struggles to pay for tuition, keep up with her schoolwork and deal with a love triangle, a darkness surfacing in her mind threatens to harden and take it all away. Will she graduate, or will the brick in her mind take over?
