Kickstarter, June 2014 – Funding Unsuccessful



This campaign expired unsuccessfully this afternoon. The ride has been (mostly) wonderful, and I’m glad I took this step. You can still stick around to find out what happens to Josiah Turn – he’s in it for the long haul.


Only about 68 hours remain on this Kickstarter campaign. But I spent too much of my life quitting to give up now. There’s still time for you to preorder my book and help me accomplish my goals. There’s still time to offer your money to support freelance editors, small printers, and independent filmmakers. There’s still time. What are you waiting for?

Initial Post:

Kickstarter is all or nothing, so if you can pledge even $1, please do so before the funding period ends. Your support – even reading this page – means everything to me!

My thanks goes out to the following people for their help, support, and collaboration to date:

My family, especially my mother, who is my biggest supporter, and my friends

Sheradee Hurst for making me look better in pictures

Audrey Dodgen for turning my pathetic attempt at a Kickstarter video into something pretty amazing

Chuck Sambuchino and Red 14 Films for allowing me to connect their names to this campaign

The local book club that beta read my novel for May 2014

Author and blogger Brooks Benjamin for sharing my campaign with his own adoring fans

Author and blogger S.M. Johnston for pulling me out of Pitch Madness slush, giving me the X-Men line, and sharing my campaign from Australia

Every single person who reads this page, views the campaign, or otherwise supports the idea of creativity or me
