Writer's Fund for Stacy N. Elliott

My name is Stacy Elliott .  I am a writer and have been actively pursuing writing for the last 10 years.  In my time, I have published numerous articles , blogs , and podcasts  at my own personal expense with no compensation.

Many writers will tell you that it is difficult to get paid for your works, and that you have to pay your dues before you begin to see any royalties.  After 10 years, I full heartily agree.  Along this journey, I have learned that a writer needs a job to pay for their basic needs and all the tools that are essential in getting their name out into the world so that publisher’s are more apt to pick up their books.

To be a successful writer requires pen, paper, technology, editors, printers, agents, traveling and a marketing platform that consists of advertising, photography, videography and websites.  As much as we would like to consider ourselves an all around creative mind, we sometimes lack in areas outside the actual art of writing.  Therefore, paying for the above mentioned talents becomes a necessity we often cannot afford on our incomes.

I am asking you for donations to fund my writing journey.  I have a book I am submitting for publication this year that will require more marketing funds than I have.  It will take time before a publisher agrees to pick up my book, but I want to utilize that time wisely by getting my name out to the public and gearing them up for the debut.  By doing so, it proves to the publisher that I am committed to selling my works above and beyond what they currently offer to their authors.

I have high and lofty dreams that I plan to see to fruition.  My repertoire includes two books already written; one ready for submission and one ready for editing.  I am currently writing a five book series and working on book two, and I am dabbling with seven other books as a scene comes to mind.  In addition, I have 17 more book ideas I would love to brainstorm and write.  Ultimately, I plan to retire from my current employment and write books for the rest of my life.  How soon this will occur will depend on how well I can sell my books on a professional platform.

Would you help support this artist in her dreams to become a successfully published author?
