 A Fool To Guide You

A Fool To Guide You is the story of a struggling couple who take a weekend trip to the family lake cabin with hopes of re-kindling the flame in their marriage. Their eight year old son, Jacob, oblivious to his father's past, doesn't understand the failure that he sees in their relationship. Jacob simply knew that the trip was supposed to help calm the fighting. At least, Brian and Kristin simply hoped that the cabin was going to be a way to calm the fighting and bring them closer together, but the forces at the cabin have a different plan. Will their love for each other be enough, or will the darkness use Brian's past to tear their marriage apart once and for all?

Where do the funds go? 

I am indie writer, and that means that I am in charge of taking care of everything myself. Everything from cover design, editing, formatting, marking, ISBN numbers, and much more! The funds from this project will cover all of the things that I need to self-publish "A Fool to Guide You" in paperback! 

A lot of people don't know about this whole new market for writers that aren't published by actual publishing companies. Amazon was the first to really open the door for regular people to be able to publish their books digitally for the Kindle. 

As of now, I have a short story collection that's available on Amazon for the Kindle and on Smashwords for most of the other e-readers as well. As I said, the goal of this project is to cover everything I need to publish "A Fool to Guide You" not only digitally, but in paperback this time! 

And I'm asking for all of your help to do that! I'm offering rewards on the right side of this page...So go ahead and take a look! With each dollar you donate, you get some awesome stuff! So please, help me accomplish my goal of publishing this novel!
