Making a fuss about Tatia’s Tattoo | by Linda Brendle

Cover coming soonOn March 23, I launched a crowdfunding campaign to help cover the costs of publishing my first novel. Tatia’s Tattoo is a literary Christian tale of child sex trafficking in small-town America.

The response from those who have read the manuscript has been very enthusiastic, but the response to the crowdfunding campaign – not so much. With less than two weeks left until the push for pre-orders and contributions in exchange for ebooks, print copies, and other rewards ends, I asked a more experienced friend for advice. He just completed his fourth crowdfunding effort with over 500 participants and over 100% of his goal. He generously shared many suggestions, but this is the heart of what he had to say:

My first bit of advice is – make a nuisance of yourself. We Brits really don’t like to make a fuss but you have to I’m afraid.

Most Texans don’t mind making a fuss, but I’m uncomfortable with it myself. However, I am passionate about this project, and my hope is that it will raise awareness of the problem as well as presenting some ways in which people can be involved in the solution. For that reason, I plan to stir up as much of a commotion as I can the next few days in order to fund the cost of development and copy edits, cover and interior design, typesetting, proofreading, setting up the ebook conversion, and other miscellaneous production costs.

If you would like to know more about Tatia’s Tattoo, visit my Crowdscribed book page  to read a brief synopsis of the story. Under the mock up of the book cover, you will see “Download a sample.” This is a link to the preface and first two chapters. If you would like to review the levels of support and reward, click the green “Contribute” button.

If you have any questions, email me at lindabrendle@yahoo.com, and I would be happy to answer them. I hope you will join me in this project. Together I believe we can make a difference.

Blessings,

Linda

Tatia’s Tattoo Quote – Forgive Me | by Linda Brendle

Forgive me

Tatia’s Tattoo is the story of sex trafficking in small-town America. As a successful D.C. lawyer, Tatia’s mission in life was to destroy the trade. She knew where to find it. She’d been there.

This novel exposes a problem that most of us think happens only in another world. Tatia’s Tattoo will be released later this summer.

This week I need 18 more preorders to help justify production. Ebooks are $10; autographed print copies are $20. goo.gl/ZAMRjl

Together I believe we can make a difference!
