Queen Harebrain Speaks

I've declared myself Queen of Harebrain Plans. I'm really good at coming up with them, awesome at failing them, but this time it's not as crazy as usual--maybe.

After lots of thinking about it and exploring Indiegogo, I decided to post a campaign that might be of some benefit to, if not me, then some others. Here's the lowdown.

I haven't been to KC since high school. This badly cropped
image shows what it might look like if I was there.

What I Need & What You Get

The registration fee for a published author at Romantic Times is $474. In addition to the registration fee, I need money for a place to stay, gas, and a hot meal or two--fuel for the author's soul. 

If you help support me here's what you'll get:

* A personalized 'Thank You' on my blog.

* A personalised 'Thank You' card in the mail.

* A free e-copies of The Treasure Hunter's Lady, The Sky Pirate's Wife, and The Turncoat's Temptress.

* Special autographed artwork from all three books.

* Mention on the Dedication page of the next book.

But wait! There's more!
If I don't reach my goal of $1000, that's okay. I'll donate half the funds to the Ozarks Literacy Council and use the other half for advertising/upgrading my computer system.

But wait! There's even more!

The Impact

I've been writing since I was young, but I had a five year gap of severe writer's block after my dad died in 2003. In 2008, I finally came up with an idea that got me back on track. I joined a writer's group, a couple of online groups, dedicated myself to learning and applying what I know.

There are certain items on the RT agenda I would love to attend to help my knowledge grow including classes on craft, genre, marketing, publishing, and some specialty things like the talks about steampunk and fantasy books.
