Help me publish my book!
Update: There is now an author website!!! Follow my blog, and check out the book page for updates!!! https://brandyange.me/
Hey guys! My name is Brandy. Believe it or not, I started writing in first grade with Frog and Toad fan fiction! I have always loved creating characters and
crafting stories. A few years ago I decided to take the plunge and try writing an entire novel. I thought that taking the leap from short stories to full on novels would be a challenge, but what started as one book turned into a few!
I have loved the writing process, and until now have kept my stories mostly to myself with the exception of a few friends and family members. I am now ready to take my next step, publication!
With your help, I am ready to share my writing with the world! I am planning on self publishing my book this coming May, which means all the marketing and production costs fall on me personally. I am excited about doing the grunt work, but I need help with some of the costs to get this project going!
Starting in January I will start selling pre-orders of the book, so keep an eye out for that announcement on my facebook, instagram, and twitter (@vagabee). Until then, I am starting this fundraiser, to get the ball rolling, and pick up the momentum I need to make one of my biggest dreams a reality!
Here is a brief summary of what the book is about:
Shael gambled and lost when he helped Luc form a mutiny against God. Now, not only are the rest of the Nephilim paying for his mistake, but so is his daughter Achaia. Only difference is, Achaia has no clue why her father has gone missing, who the Nephilim are, or that she's one of them. When Luc finally catches up with Shael and Achaia is left on her own, she has to decide who to trust. Which side will she choose? And which side will choose her?
Thank you so much for your support. Even with all my love for words, they are insuffiecient to express my gratitude. God Bless!
The launch went extremely well! Thank you, to everyone who came out in person and online to support the book release!
The book hasn't even been out a month, and I am already surprised by the response. I am so humbled by the support I have received. Thank you!
I am sorry to everyone who ordered hardcovers, I am working on it. Unfortunately, publishing is expensive, and as you can see if you visit the fundraising page, I haven't raised as much as I needed, so I am having to really save up for all the printing costs, let alone the shipping and such. I will have them to you as soon as I can possibly afford to meet the minimum printing.
Some people have been asking if this fundraising page was still up and active, to which the answer is YES! If you are still wanting to donate, go for it!
Thank you all again! This page will stay up and active, I still have another three or four books to get out there!
Love you guys!
I did a brave and foolish thing last week and totaled up how much it has cost me so far in this publishing process, and we are approaching the $6000 mark.
If anyone feels led to donate to help offset that cost, it would be much appreciated. But even if you don't, I hope you will still show your support by reading the book and leaving an honest review on amazon and/or goodreads.
Thank you for all your love and support guys! It is almost time to start reading!!!!!
All the contracts and paperwork are officially signed and sent in. So we are legal, which is great.
We are printing the paperbacks and preparing the ebooks which will come out first. The hardcovers are all going to be special, limited-edition books with all the beautiful details of the old classics. You don't see books like this often anymore, and I am very excited about them! But, they will take a little longer to design and print, so they will follow along later.
The quotes are in and we are looking at around $3,750.00 BEFORE shipping. So you can see that I was just about spot on with my $4000 goal.
However, I haven't reached my goal. So one more time I am going to say if you've been meaning to donate and haven't, now is the time! God will provide in one way or another, but if you want to be a part of this journey, I would greatly appreciate the support!
I will hopefully be updating you all again soon with an official release date, and maybe even a date for the book launch party! Stay tuned, and if you pray, say a prayer for me as well. This is all very exciting but a little stressful and scary too. Thank you all!
However, I am not financially where I need to be in order to cover all the publishing costs. So this is a friendly reminder that the Go Fund Me is still active if you feel inclined to donate. I am also excited to announce that as another form of fundraising, in which you can actually get something for your money, we are working on t-shirt designs to host a Bonfire Campaign! We have some fun, and funny ideas for those so stay tuned!!!
I talked to Phil last week, and will be getting that up and going as soon as I get rid of this sickness that I've had since camp. For now, thank you so much for your prayers and patience. I hope to have a book for you very soon!
