About

Invest in a novel that is so fiery, it will blow up the New York Times Best Sellers list!  The first five donors contributing at the Benefactor level will be able to name a character in the story.

I'm a psychologist with 34+ years of experience, particularly with male abuse survivors.  The books in this series are my homage to those men in hopes to encourage them to keep striving for genuine, loving relationships, no matter their SOGIE status.  The novels follow the lives Desmond "Deetz" Mac Innes and Angus Reese, as a childhood crush twists into a passionate romance, into a marriage, thus continuing and enhancing a century old dynasty. I covered the costs of the first book, The Roswell Discrepancy: a human romance in three parts

but I believe a more robust marketing strategy will improve the success of the second story, Project Iceworm: a human marriage in three parts.  For a sample of my writing, check out the electronic reading of a chapter from The Roswell Discrepancy below:

 I am looking for funds to support three components: 

  • Mirador Publishing Package which costs $1000. This includes professional editing, cover page, posting on Amazon, and release date marketing.
  • Marketing Campaign at a cost of $2500, which includes an ad in "Between the Lines" (local LGBTQA1 newspaper), an ad in the UK edition of Attitude magazine (LGBTQA1 newspaper in the UK, where the story takes place), and two 3-month long social media promotion, pre- and post publishing. 
  • Professional audio narrator to publish an audiobook version of the book which will cost $1500.

The Benefits of Supporting the Campaign

Your generosity is deeply appreciated.  Please consider donating at one of the following levels.  All contributing persons will receive a monthly update on my progress in completing the story, as well as exclusive snippets from the book.

• Contributor: $10 or more • Giver: $25 or more • Sponsor: $75 or more • Patron: $100 or more • Benefactor: $150 or more

Risks and challenges

Possibility: I don't finish writing the book before the projected submission date (April 15, 2018) or other delays prevent the optimal publishing date of June 2018 (Pride month).
YOUR INSURANCE: all donors will receive weekly updates to follow my progress across the remaining writing, publishing, and marketing process; questions or suggestions (or encouragement???) can be sent to my blog page, http://deetzmacinnes.blogspot.com/

Possibility: I die or become severely debilitated such that the novel is not completed, published, or completed marketing.
YOUR INSURANCE: in such an instance, the monies are returned to you minus a percentage covering any legitimate expenditures connected to the goals outlined above; a spreadsheet showing expenses and balances will be sent with the weekly update.
