Book Club Levels – Tatia’s Tattoo Crowdfunding | by Linda Brendle

stop-human-traffickingHuman trafficking is one of the three largest illegal industries in the world – experts disagree on whether it is second or third. Over a million children each year fall victim to traffickers.

Tatia’s Tattoo is a Christian novel that tells the story of sex trafficking in small-town America. Raising awareness of this issue could be the first step in solving it. It is my belief that Tatia’s story can play a large part of taking that first step.

You can be involved in Tatia’s story by pledging financial support to help cover the costs of development and copy editing, typesetting, proof reading, and cover design. Proceeds will also cover the miscellaneous costs involved in setting up the ebook, acquiring the ISBN and Library of Congress numbers, and so forth, as well as the printing costs for the books supporters will receive as rewards. None of the funds from the campaign are released to the author at any time.

There are six different levels of support, each with a minimum dollar amount and a corresponding reward. My last two posts have explained the details of the first four levels. This post is about Levels 5 and 6 – the Book Club Levels.

Book-clubbannerSilver Book Club – Level 5: Silver Book Clubs are small groups of book lovers who love to meet to discuss books they have read. The reward for this level includes five autographed paperback copies of Tatia’s Tattoo with 5 custom bookmarks, 5 custom tote bags, 5 chances to win a $25 Amazon gift certificate, and the names of your book club and club members on a list of supporters in the book. The minimum contribution for this level is $125.

Gold Book Club – Level 6: Gold Book Clubs are larger groups of Bibliophiles who love to meet to discuss books they have read. Contributors at this level will receive ten autographed paperback copies of Tatia’s Tattoo, 10 custom bookmarks, 10 custom tote bags, a personal or video appearance by the author (depending on location), 10 chances to win a $30 Amazon gift certificate, and the names of your book club and club members on a list of supporters in the book. The minimum contribution for all of this is $275.

Here are several easy ways to see what all the excitement is about:

Nightwalk for Hope Rained Out | by Linda Brendle

NightwalkSlavery was abolished in the United States in 1865, but did you know that, according to a story released by KLTV on August 24, 2013, that a form of slavery called human trafficking is a growing problem – not in Africa or Asia or New York, but in East Texas. Human trafficking is defined as “the illegal movement of people, typically for the purposes of forced labor or commercial sexual exploitation.” Traffickers often target at risk young people, sometimes twelve-years-old and younger, in order to sell their bodies for cash. A Tyler expert was quoted by KLTV as saying that, in Smith County, 33% of girls and 17% of boys will be sexually abused, some of them at the hand of traffickers, before the age of eighteen. (more…)
