Self Publishing - Editing Funds

$60 of $500 goal

Raised by 3 people in 16 months



Hello everyone, nice to meet you.

I am a writer of epic style, sword and sorcery fantasy stories.  I also have a couple steampunk, horror, and an urban fantasy or two.  I have several completed manuscripts that are in need of a little TLC before I go for publication.  I'm looking at self publishing right now and need betas and a good edit or two.  After the edit, I'll have to buy a couple of ISBNs, comission a cover artist, and pay for both ebook formatting and print book formatting, as well as paying for a couple actual printed copies.

It would probably be easier to raise the money in stages, so I've divided my goals into, what I hope, are realisitic numbers.  The bulk of the money will go to the actual publishing and printing process, which will include the formatting of the final manuscript for ebook and print versions, cover art, and printing.  That's a much larger number than what I'm going for today.  Today, I just want to get the editing done.

The first $1000 will go toward the editing process, so that's my first goal.  The money will be paid to the editors I hire, and will include a number of story edits as well as line edits to avoid typos in the final manuscript.  I have no idea how many times I'll have to send the manuscript back to betas and editors, so I'm hoping $1000 will cover everything.

Got a little help from a friend in Camp NaNo. We now have a Back of Book description.

"For 14-year old Elizabeth, life at Blackstone Castle wasn’t all feasts and dances. As far as she was concerned, it was downright boring, with lessons and noble duties she wanted nothing to do with. Just because her father was the Earl didn’t mean she had to behave like a Lady, did it? Luckily, she found solace in her nightly singing with the wolves.

But when a sinister curse awakens and threatens all she holds dear, Elizabeth jumps at the chance to do whatever it takes to end it. The secret of the curse is well hidden though, burned and buried like the bodies of the dead it had taken before.

Will she find the answers in time to save herself and her family, or will the darkness swallow them all?"

Currently working on a new story for National Novel Writing Month. (Check it out nanowrimo.org ^_^)

Finished first round of edits from first beta reader. Unfortunately, he only got about 1/2 way through. Found two more betas, and am waiting for their feedback.
