Destine Synopsis

Michelle Cross is an average, seventeen year old girl growing up in a small town in New Jersey. Up until her senior year, her life has consisted of a rather unglamorous existence, until a handsome new boy finds her at school. Little by little Michelle’s world is turned upside down. The new boy claims to be the Archangel Gabriel cast from heaven, her best friend falls for the Antichrist, and come to find out Michelle’s mother has seen it coming all along. So instead of being consumed with prom and graduation, Michelle finds herself battling the evils of Hell in her small town. Can Michelle stop the powers of Hell in time? Can love bridge the world between heaven and earth? Michelle and Gabriel find themselves the pawns in a very dangerous game between an ancient power with a mysterious message and Satan himself. Sometimes your Destiny finds you...

Rafflecopter and Kickstarter

Yesterday I posted about all of those sneaky extra costs that add up when you self publish. Today, I'm going to announce a rafflecopter contest and also ramble a bit about Kickstarter.  Bear with me =)


So, when I first realized that authors are using Kickstarter, I got excited. Then, I decided that it's kind of lame for a single person to raise funds for a book. There are big projects going on on Kickstarter, projects with lots of people that can't happen without lots of money. I wroteSemester Aboard without a Kickstarter campaign and, in spite of all those costs I talked about yesterday, I think I've done alright.


But, after a couple of weeks, I couldn't quite get it out of my head. I started thinking about what I could do, not just for me, but for Anchor Group Publishing as well. One of the things I love about AG is that we all help each other. We're like a little family. If one of the AG authors said, Elizabeth, buy a copy of your book and send it to me so I can take it to my library, I totally would. But imagine if I could just buy one of every AG book and do that myself! I want to be able to buy AG swag and give it away. I want to be able to design and buy banner ads for AG's page and for all of my fellow AG authors.


The problem is, that Kickstarter is for solo projects, not businesses. Neither Stacey (AG's owner/pres) nor I can start a campaign for Anchor Group. But I can do one for a single book. So, I did. I also noticed that, while there are a lot of books on Kickstarter, I have never seen any of the authors in my circles post about it. I hope that, if I succeed, AG and I will sort of pioneer the way for other indies.
Without further ado, here's the raffle. I want to note right now that: You do not in any way, shape, or form, have to contribute to Kickstarter to participate in the raffle. I amnot asking you to contribute to the campaign. This rafflecopter is just to help me spread the word and awareness about it. Thank you. a Rafflecopter giveaway
