Eann's Kickstarter!
 
Well she hasn't posted here in awhile so I figured I should since I've seen her most recent posts. She's got a new book she's trying to fund. Here's the kickstarter link for those who may be interested: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...d-the-railroad

Yayyyy! I'm so happy for her. And now that it's successful looks like even more are flooding in. That's a huge accomplishment to get that kind of backing for a book to start.

It's so cool we live in a world with kickstarters in the like to make books happen. 30 years ago it's major publisher or you're out of luck!

Yes, it's a good achievement to get the book published this way.

Lauri and Deborah's pledges have boosted the Kickstarter for THE SHELL GAME up to 44% of goal, 52 backers and $2,202 with 7 days left in the campaign! You rock, ladies! Thank you so much!

Katrina just pledged the second highest pledge in the Kickstarter campaign for THE SHELL GAME so far! Thanks to her, the campaign is now at 43% of goal with 50 backers, $2,182 out of the $5000 we need and just one short week to go! Just a reminder that when the campaign funds (she says optimistically) the person who pledges highest first will be able to choose one of the collaborative hardbacks I wrote with Anne McCaffrey with not only my signature but a color bookplate Anne signed when she was last in this area. I never wanted to ask Anne to stress her arthritic hands by signing my copies, but my friend Lea Day, who was Anne's PA for her last few trips to the States, had one she generously donated to the campaign.
For some reason I like helping with PR :blush: And helping Eann get back here.
