You Should Be Past 10k Words By Now
You should be past 10 thousand words by now, NaNo-ers, but if you are not, do not dismay. We are less than a third of the way through the month and weekends are glorious! For instance, due to a colleague's uterus expelling life (healthy, 7lbs, 11oz) early, I am behind my quota by 1,295 words, so I am off to a writer's meetup to eat Panera and clack on my keyboard furiously.
We hit the 30% mark yesterday with a generous pledge from Pieranna. At this rate we need to collect less than $180 a day in pledges to make our goal. Keep clicking those share buttons and spreading the word!
We have some great packages available to help you make the best indie book possible. Yesterday we had a Matter Deep mind-meld and decided that anyone claiming the CREATIVE CRITIQUE would not just get the feedback of Kyle Strickland, but other members of our Matter Deep team. We want to give you as much useful feedback as possible for a generous pledge of $500. We have one of those packages left.
We also have 2/3 PERSONAL ADVISING sessions left. For that reward tier, we'll schedule a Google+ Hangout between you and three of our authors so that you can ask questions, practice your elevator pitch, and get clarifications on what we write in the book. If course, you could just use it to hang out and talk about nerd stuff with us for an hour. That's cool, too.
Already have a project ready to go? We have 5/10 of the SIGNAL BOOST package left. We'll tweet a link to your project (no porn, politics, or religion) to our followers. Combined, we have over $30k followers. That's quite a signal boost!
Finally, we have cover design services from Carly Strickland. You can pledge at one level to get a DIGITAL DESIGN (suitable for uploading eBooks) or a little higher to get a full-wrap PRINT DESIGN. Photographic, text, or illustration—Carly does it all.
These are all examples of her work. You can see how talented she is! If you or someone you know is ready to take that step of purchasing cover art, consider backing this project to get The Indie Guide to Indie Publishing, a contributing author credit, and sweet cover art at a really great price.
