About this project

The Project:

I'm an indie author of the ebook, THE FAIRY TALE TRAP. I love this book and I want to make it a quality paperback that you can actually hold in your hands. 

I need a kickstart to cover the costs of editing, cover design, etc... so THE FAIRY TALE TRAP can reach a wider audience (including my own mother, who doesn't read ebooks).

About the Book:

A beautiful girl falls in love with a beast. Ivy’s heard the story before, but now it’s a reality.
Ivy has always been afraid of mirrors, but she never knew why. Then one of them sucks her into the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast.

She’s been pulled from her home and talks to pixies now. So what? That’s no big deal for a military brat. Ivy’s used to adapting. All she wants is to find her way home.

But when she tries to escape, Ivy breaks the wrong spell. Now Beast is not so gentle-on-the-inside, Beauty is falling for the wrong prince, and Ivy is no closer to figuring out how to get through the enchanted forest that traps her.

With magic mirrors, dancing fairies, a sadistic pixie, and other random fairy tale twists, Ivy doesn’t know what’s safe or who to trust. Can she escape the fairy tale trap?

You can read sample chapters of THE FAIRY TALE TRAP here.

See THE FAIRY TALE TRAP Amazon page.

Rollover Points:


First, if the campaign is a success, you get the rewards promised in the sidebar. That's a given. But...

    If the campaign breaks $5,000, I'll write a short story for all patrons subscribing at $10 or more.  

If the campaign breaks $6,000, I'll write Ivy into a second book and all patrons subscribing at $30 or more will get a copy of the ebook, when it's complete. This is my way of saying thank you for your generosity.
