About this project

The process of writing and publishing a book is both rewarding and difficult. Once you get it published, reaching your audience is especially trying. Check Out Time was published on July 13, 2012, and my sales have been less than satisfactory. For a little-known author, marketing is the hardest part of the job-- especially if you're a full-time student working two part-time jobs to make ends-meet.

If my project is funded, I will:

Conduct a $300 book tour through Partners In Crime Virtual Book Tours.

Left over funds will be applied to other online book tour companies, such as: 

Innovative Online Book Tours

The Virtual Book Tour Cafe

Reading Addiction Blog Tours

So far, my marketing efforts have been minimal due to lack of funds. My main goal for this project is to increase my exposure and reach a wider audience.

Enjoy a good whodunit? Then you will love Check Out Time!

Back cover blurb:

Naomi Vogler blames herself for her mother's tragic death, continually reliving the accident in her nightmares. When she reconnects with her estranged father, he invites her to live with him in a little town called Witchfire. A simple job stocking shelves overnight at a local grocery store seems a perfect distraction. But when the manager of the store is found dead in the boiler room, Naomi's boring job becomes something much more complicated. No matter how she looks at it, one thing is certain: retail is murder.
