Most of you lovely readers had the opportunity to read the very first incarnation of WHAT THE TOWN KNEW as chapters were posted on this blog two years ago. (Yes, that long ago. Time flies when the story ideas keep coming.) With the story finished, it was put on the back burner until now.
Scheduled for release in March 2015, Lizzie needs your help to get her story out. A beautiful cover needs to be paid for, editor to make sure everything is error free, and marketing to help spread the word to libraries and bookstores.
Want a glimpse at what the cover will look like? (You can't see the whole thing until I reach the halfway mark.)
Here you go:

A good dent was made in my goal during the first week, but now we're down to the last 12 days and we're a ways away from making the goal.
Anything you can do, from donating to sharing, helps.
Additionally, if I can make my goal, 5% of my sales for the first 6 months will be donated to help domestic abuse victims. Lizzie's story is just that; a story. As her creator and author, I pulled the strings to make her ending a little less horrible. But, there are so many people, men and women, in the same situation that catapulted Lizzie into action and their stories don't end as well. Having the resources to reach out and help people in domestic abuse situations before they escalate into something there's no turning back from is important to our communities. I'd like to see everyone have the chance to live happy and healthy lives and leave the horror on paper.
