Day 13 of 30 Days of Lists is My Causes. There are a few things I’m passionate about: my family, Great Apes (chimpanzees in particular), and pets (specifically Chihuahuas and Pitbulls). I’m going to focus this post on my son Logan since he’s doing something really big!
Did you know that my son Logan is a published author? Yep. He sure is! At the end of 2012/beginning of 2013 he wrote three full length novels called The Trifectus Series. They are Beginnings, Homecoming, and Revelations. I am beyond proud of him!
Yesterday he was accepted by Kickstarter! This is a big deal. Currently, the Trifectus series is available only through the Amazon Kindle Marketplace. Logan wants to use the money from his Kickstarter campaign to:
Distribute the books in a paperback format. He’s going to use Amazon’s Createspace service to make all three books into a paperback format ready for sale and distribution through Amazon. This will allow him to take the next step and propel the series into a whole new direction. With this plan though, come fees. He has it broken thusly, but are not limited to:
- Three ISBNs for each book. A printed version ISBN, an Amazon Kindle version ISBN, and an ePUB ISBN for other distribution.
- Transforming my existing covers into covers for Createspace.
- Possible re-editing of book one. A different person did book one than did books two and three, and I would like the editor of the final two to go through the first book and make any necessary changes before creating the paperback.
- Advertisement of the series. I have been doing extensive advertising, but there are sites with paid promotion and sponsorship opportunities that could get my books and series out to a greater audience. Anything leftover after the above mentioned needs and paying for rewards would go straight into advertising.
Here’s a super cute picture of Logan from my wedding:We would greatly appreciate it if you would share this post and/or Logan’s Kickstarter page with your group of friends!
