You’ve heard me talk about my book project, Her Lost Year, for months now. (When you work on a book, it kind of takes over your life. And once you start getting close to the finish line, you just want to tell everybody about it!) Thanks for sticking with me.
Throughout the process of writing (for three years!), I have been going back and forth between thinking about indie publishing (self-publishing) and traditional publishing (getting an agent, landing a publishing contract). For now, indie publishing has won out, primarily because I feel a great sense of urgency to get the book released and into the hands of parents, educators, and concerned citizens across the country.
Her Lost Year Kickstarter Campaign
In order to complete this project—and launch a professional-quality book, I need to raise money to pay for services such as copy editing, layout, and cover art. I’ve decided to use the Kickstarter platform for this. Take a look at this video we created to promote the campaign (narrated by my daughter, Rebecka):
Visit our Kickstarter campaign website to learn more and see if you’d like to support us. There are some pretty nifty rewards (including a signed book, of course!), so make sure to check those out. If you’re not in a position to contribute financially at this time, please share the campaign on Twitter or Facebook (or wherever you hang out online!).
Thank you. You rock—a lot!
