Here we are. Ten days in. How much NaNoWriMo words have I written this month?
Yup. None. But All is not lost!
I have not been idle. I have been working hard getting Lost Hope ready for a 1st Edition release. That just means that I will do my best to get the book edited and such myself then relaunch the crowd funding with some minor adjustments to the rewards offered.
When that is complete I will be able to send out to an editor using the funds from the CF as well as any profits made from sales. That ensures a better book for second edition AND makes a collector item for those who purchase it as a 1st Edition!
Everyone says as long as you have a great story that doesn’t read like it was written by a third grader, you can be successful as an indie writer.
Well, I am about to test that later this week. Thank you everyone for your continued support!
That being said, I have decided to put the crowd funding campaign for Lost Hope on hold until further notice.
I want this book to be worth your time and money. In order to do that, I have to make sure it is truly ready to send out into the hands of an editor.
After much thought and speaking with a few people about it. (My husband and a couple readers who have opinions I value) I chose to withdraw my crowd fund.
Pubslush, the platform I chose to use for the crowd fund, has been more than awesome in helping me make sure that I have everything exactly as I want it.
From changing the time limit on the project from 60 days to 30, and now allowing me to stop the funding process without having to delete the entire project to do it. They have sent me emails making sure I am prepared as well as encouraging me as I head out on a new adventure with my novel and my dreams of publication and success.
I strongly encourage any writer to check out Pubslush. It is a BOOKS ONLY Crowd Funding platform. Think Kickstarter for your novel, short story, children’s book, Photo album etc.
