2:22 AM – campaign

coverHi guys,

I want to tell you about this new novel I have finished writing. A couple of days ago you were able to read a few excerpts

But I need your help to release the novel. What do I need help for?

The total amount I’m trying to raise is $1,500, but the truth is the actual amount is closer to $1,300 because of PayPal and Indiegogo fees.

Around $4-500 will pay for editing.  And, yes, even if you self-publish, you still need your book to be professionally edited. This is not the internet, this is something you’re asking money for, so you have to offer people a finished product that’s as flawless as possible.

Now comes the tricky part: the money wouldn’t be enough if I wouldn’t be able to design covers and format interiors for e-books and paperbacks. The work I do, that’s at least $500 in the world of freelance graphic designers. At least.

So, yes, I can get a book released, and I also get to use the remaining funds for marketing and promoting, which means paying for ads on relevant websites such as Goodreads, hosting giveaways and contests. I don’t think there’s really a need to go crazy when it comes to spending on marketing and promoting a self-published novel.

That’s pretty much why I need the money, what I need it for, and how I want to proceed.

In return for your contributions you’ll receive e-books, mentions in the book, signed paperbacks, and prints of the cover artwork. And the oh-so-good feeling of having helped us out.

Without your help I wouldn’t be able to release this book, simply because I can’t afford to pay for everything that needs to be done. But with your contributions, I can reach the goal and make sure the best possible version of the novel gets released.

Simply put, I get to do what I love and try to make a living out of it.

And what I love is to be my own kind of superhero and change your worlds, word by word. I might even inspire you to join the team. But for now, it’s up to you to help me get there.4
