Funding for the print release of my first book!

     Angela Dawson has been raised in the captivity of a government Facility for as long as she can remember. Though she is able to manipulate elements, The Facility quickly developed a means of preventing her from using her abilities outside of testing, after her first failed escape attempt as a child.

     Now almost eighteen years old, Angie seems to have surrendered to her life of testing, poking, and prodding within the thirty-floor underground prison. That is, until a suspicious young psychologist is hired to crack open her deepest darkest secret; the locations of the five others like herself, to whom she is connected in her dreams.

     Faced with decisions of who to trust, who to love, who to kill, and whether to have pancakes or waffles for breakfast, Angela's transformation into an adult (and into a human being) is far more extraordinary than she could have ever imagined within the suffocating walls that raised her.

STRETCH GOAL!!!
Seeing as how the project has already exceed its goal, with 21 days left on the clock, I've added a stretch goal of $350.
Reaching this goal will enable me to have additional books printed, as well as enable it for expanded distribution to large chain book stores, and libraries!
If the goal is reached, I will release an awesome book trailer!
Thank you all so much for your support!

The Energy Room is a Young Adult novel in the Scifi/Fantasy genre. It is my debut novel, and I plan to have three books total in the series. I've already started writing the sequel.
I started a Kickstarter project to fund the editing and formatting of the finished book. Though that project was not successful, I have a completed book that I am very proud of!
I have already released the ebook through Kindle, and the book is formatted and ready for paperback publishing.
It will be a 5x8 paperback, with a total of 270 pages.
The book will be available through Amazon, but I am starting this project in order to fund some printing for local distribution.
If the goal of $200 is exceeded, I will be using that money for extra distribution and marketing. It would also go towards paying my lovely editor.
Stretch goals may be added in the future :)

Thanks for taking a gander, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

I believe the biggest challenge in writing a book is actually writing the book. I've already done this, and I have a finished book that I am extremely happy with, and proud of.
Since I am self-publishing, I am eliminating a lot of the risk that is involved when trying to find a literary agent and publisher.
Unless I am eaten by a tornado, or a giant spider, there is very little risk involved. If this project is successfully funded, there should be no issues in having the book printed and distributed, and the rewards sent out :)
