HEY LIVEJOURNAL, HEY GUESS WHAT

I have a Kickstarter up for publishing the Jane book!

I would super super super love it if you could help, even just the littlest bit. Most of you know that for a long time the Jane book seemed to be on an endless meandering road to nowhere, and that was not a good thing. Having this Kickstarter, if it gets funded, gives me the means to take control and put the book out there. This is kind of huge.

Donations start at $1 and go up to whatever you want to give, and there are some rewards up that I think are pretty decent.* Probably the best of them: if you have a book that you want edited I am offering to edit an 80,000-word manuscript** for $1,000, which is literally one-quarter of what that would usually cost. I have professional experience in editing books and I am good at it. There are plenty of other rewards as well, all listed on the page. Autographed copies are popular at the moment.

So, yeah. If you can help it will make me squee. A lot. ^.^

*My personal favorite ones are the ones where you can chat online with one of the characters in the book or where I write a bonus short story about the book for you, but thus far those are unpopular because nobody has read the book yet and therefore nobody has any interest in the characters yet. Things I should have predicted.
**Length may be negotiable if your book is longer.

awesome

I'm so pleased to see that it's done so well already. I'm not surprised that autographed copies are popular, especially if most of the backers are your friends. You can give them all really personalised messages because you'll probably know them all! I'm going to repost the info when it gets closer to the deadline to make sure that as many of my friends as possible are getting involved :)
