On July 25, I published my debut novel Remembrance. I have handled everything myself, from designing the cover, to marketing the book to people around the world! Word of the book spread, and lots of you have become fans of Remembrance, although I really consider every fan to be a friend. Your support of my writing means the world to me! Now I want to travel around the country to speak at schools and meet everyone who has been so supportive of Remembrance. This is where your help comes into play!
I will be visiting over 25 cities in the USA to speak at high schools about Remembrance. The tour will take place from February through April. I'll be driving over 5,000 miles and meeting tons of fans!
Sadly, tours are expensive, which is why I am asking for your help. There are things like gas, hotels, giveaways, food, and more, which is why I am coming to you, my fans, for support!
Here is a list of the cities I'll be visiting while on tour: Atlanta, GA; Nashville, TN; Memphis, TN; Plano, TX; Oklahoma City, OK; Albuquerque, NM; Las Vegas, NV; Laguna Beach, CA; Beverly Hills, CA; Napa Valley, CA; Reno, NV; Salt Lake City, UT; Denver, CO; Omaha, NE; Chicago, IL; Indianapolis, IN; Columbus, OH; Lancaster, PA; Cherry Hill, NJ; Baltimore, MD
What You Get By Backing Me
The fun thing here is that by backing my tour, you will get fun stuff, too! This includes everything from an acknowledgement in my blog, signed books, a mask that resembles the one on the Remembrance cover, to different ways you can hang out with me while on tour! See the different levels on the right sidebar for information on what you can get by backing my tour.
While my goal is $5,000, if I raise more than this amount, all of the extra money will go directly to additional costs on my tour and future writing expenses. I receive all the money as it's given to me.
All prize packs will be sent out and all Skype meetings will be arranged at the end of the campaign. (In April). If you purchased either the Coffee Date or Dinner, email me (email@example.com) so we can arrange plans for when I'm in your city!
