Tatia’s Tattoo – Quote – Sorrow | by Linda Brendle

Human 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 was one of those children.

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:

Tatia’s Tattoo Crowdfunding Levels 3 and 4 | by Linda Brendle

bibliophile-07The crowdfunding campaign to publish Tatia’s Tattoo went live on Thursday. On Friday I posted some details about the first two levels of six. Here is a description of Levels 3 and 4.

The third level is the Book Lovers Level. It is for those who love the experience of snuggling into a comfortable spot with a freshly printed book in hand. The reward for Book Lovers includes an autographed paperback copy of Tatia’s Tattoo with a custom bookmark, one chance to win a $10 Amazon gift certificate, and your name on a list of supporters in the book. The minimum contribution for this level is $20.

Level 4 is for Bibliophiles, those who love books so much they need a way to carry the stack of books they are currently reading anywhere they go. Their reward is an autographed paperback copy of Tatia’s Tattoo with a custom bookmark, a custom tote bag, one chance to win a $20 Amazon gift certificate, and your name on a list of supporters in the book. The Level 4 minimum is $27.

On Friday, a friend asked me about the minimum amounts on each level. He wondered if he could contribute more than the minimum on a certain level. The answer is “Yes.” To contribute an amount not listed, go to the bottom of the page and fill in the space labeled “Choose your amount.”

Tatia’s Tattoo Crowdfunding Campaign Is Now Live! | by Linda Brendle

ShameHuman 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.

Today I have launched a crowdfunding campaign aimed at gathering support to meet the costs of publishing Tatia’s Tattoo, 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.

You can be involved by pledging financial support to help cover the costs of development Cover coming soonand 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.

There are six different levels of support, each with a minimum dollar amount and a corresponding reward. The Friends Level has a minimum of $5, and the reward is my undying gratitude and a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift certificate. The Gold Book Club Level has a minimum of $275 and the reward includes ten print copies of Tatia’s Tattoo, ten custom bookmarks, ten custom tote bags, a personal or video appearance by the author (depending on location), ten chances to win a $30 Amazon gift certificate, and an acknowledgement of your book club and members in the book. In between the two levels, there are four others that increase from the lowest to the highest. The dollar amounts shown are suggested minimums, but if you feel as strongly about this project as I do, you are free to increase any of the dollar amounts.

The campaign is set up to accept all major credit cards. All funds collected, with the exception of processing fees charged by the credit card companies, are applied to publishing costs. In the event we collect more than the initial costs, excess funds will be held and applied to the printing costs of future sales. In the unlikely event the project is cancelled, all contributions will be refunded except for the processing fees. No cash is ever released to the author.

The actual publication process will take three to four months after the end of the campaign. During the process, I am planning a cover reveal, a book video trailer, an author video/Facebook Live event, and anything else that sounds like fun. If all goes as planned, the books and other rewards will be available by late summer. I am also working on a booklet outlining other ways you can help fight human trafficking. The final product will be posted on the Internet in a PDF format, and the link will be available in the book.

I hope you will join me in this project. Simply click this link, click the “Contribute” button, and choose your level of support and reward. Together I believe we can make a difference.

Blessings,
