Publishing Project for Jimmetta Carpenter

My name is Jimmetta Carpenter and I am a writer, a freelance editor, and the creator and editor of the online magazine, Write 2 Be Magazine  as well as my Write 2 Be personal blog site.  I have been writing in one way or another since I was ten years old and have come close several times to getting an agent and being traditionally published but have decided that I don’t want to sit around and wait anymore for someone to say yes to my dream. I am starting this campaign to begin completing the journey of self-publishing my first three books in 2020 as well as producing my magazine in print to distribute to local libraries and subscribers.  My goal is $10,000 and here is the breakdown of where the money will be going:  

The editing of three novels will be a total of $2,500 (discounted rate)
Book Cover Design Artist for $1,000 (discounted rate)
The Printing of an initial run and review copies for $1000
The Rental of my writing office space for $1000
Marketing and Promotional Materials for $2,000
First print run of print Magazine copies $2,500 

I will randomly select five people from those who donate to gift a personalized gift box to that will include a copy of each book and also other promotional materials (bookmarks, a T-shirt, a tote bag, and a pen) that will aid the book in its promotion.  I would be so grateful for any small amount that you can donate.  
Here is a description of the first book that is set to be published:   

The Diary: Succession of Lies 

What if you discovered that the sins of your mother’s past will forever haunt your future and that finding out the secrets that she took to her grave with her would turn the lives of the people she left behind upside down? 

To the rest of the world Corynn Hayes was a brilliant writer and entrepreneur but to Karlee Jones she was not only her mother but her best friend.  Until her unexpected death Karlee thought that she knew everything there was to know about her mother.  However, after receiving her mother’s diary as a final gift to her, she soon realizes the depth of the secrets that she kept from her and just how devastating her lies would end up being.        

The Diary: Succession of Lies is a tale of the trials of love, lust, loss, and redemption from two generations of women.  While the mistress has been vilified throughout literature as a harlot and a home wrecker, The Diary is a new take on the role that a mistress plays and is a compelling and thought- provoking read that goes into truthful and oftentimes painful depth as to why a mistress stays, of whether love is present in taboo relationships, and questions whether love is enough to endure the consequences that come along with it. 

Please help me fulfill this dream!
