For 30 days only, preorder my next book through Kickstarter

UPDATE: The campaign is funded in full! I am stunned. It only took 5 days, I have the very coolest fans and friends on the planet! You can still preorder the book if you like, via Kickstarter. All additional funds at this point will go towards editing and cover design fees. **BIG HUGS** to all of you!

The very best part of being an indie writer is the direct connection with readers and fans. You aren't all a bunch of anonymous numbers, showing up in a royalties statement; you're individuals who've sent me emails, tweets, and left reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. You've taken my novel, Someone Else's Fairytale, which was produced on a shoestring budget, to the top 200 ebooks on Amazon and it is thanks to you that I could travel to the Nebula Awards and see my friend and former instructor, Connie Willis, made a Grand Master. That's an event that will never happen again. It's thanks to you that I'm able to take my family home to New Mexico this year so my boys can meet their cousins face to face and see their home country. My youngest has never even been to the United States. I've said it before, but let me say it again, thank you for supporting my work.

I've got another novel that is just about ready for show time, and while I will make it available to anyone who wants to read it via Wattpad and by giving out review copies, I'd also like to invite those of you who want to lend a hand to help me get a Kirkus Indie review. Kirkus is one of the most well respected names in book reviews, and in order to afford their services, I've set up a campaign on Kickstarter.

Through this campaign, you can preorder a special edition of the book, made exclusively for Kickstarter backers. I'm eager to introduce you to a new cast of characters who live in the fictitious town of Pelican Bluffs, on the northern California coast. Here's the book trailer I made:
