SIDLINGS -- my online novel

$2,000 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 35 people in 54 months

My name is Dee Emm Elms.

I am the writer of a novel called sidligs.

The novel is my attempt to deal with a range of topics that matter deeply to me --
-- transgender advocacy
-- autism
-- how I was abused as a child  
-- my peronal identity

This work is personal and important to me.  I have to get it out there.  

And, right now, I am using a web page to release my novel in serialized format.
sidlings.com

I love releasing the novel this way, as a digital cliffhanger serial, but ULTIMATELY I want to publish the book in its entirety -- as a real novel, both digitally and on paper.

The money I am trying to earn from this campaign will be used to pay the expense of the time taken to write the novel, the costs of the URL, to pay any additional incurred expenses like further illustrations.

I want to tell my story, but I need help in order to get it out there into real hands.  It's not enough that it be just online.  I need to make physical copies.  I need to birth the novel into the real world.

I hope you will help me.  

Ask any questions you like.

And please spread the word.

-- Dee Emm Elms

Love the thread of people feeling good about doing good in the novel. Need more of that in real life.
