Do you like books?

Of course you do. Everyone likes books. There's some pretty creepy correlations between the invention of the novel and the decline of torture. Novelists pretty much invented empathy and taught people how to feel it. What's not to love?

Despite the high-brow remark above, I write urban fantasy, which for some foggy reason has recently been changed to "supernatural/occult." It's still got vampires and faeries and ghosts in it, so whatever. I write for adults, not teenagers, though some teenagers do like my work. I include sex and violence and my characters swear, so there's that, but I like my stories to have meat to them. I don't like stories about love triangles and maidens longing to be swept away by princes, and I don't write them.

I'm just getting started on this venture and while it's not terribly expensive to do, it does cost some money to print books and also to eat food. Grocery stores like it if you pay them. I have e-books available at all the big online retailers, but I really move books when I can get out to art fairs and meet people. (I'm very nice.) In order to start getting out to more and bigger fairs, I need funds. This is where you come in, and what I will do with the funds you provide me. I will use any funds I acquire to print books, travel to fairs, and pay fair fees. I may use remaining funds for online advertising, but we'll see how that all pans out.

Thank you a million times in advance for any funding you might be able to provide. You're my hero.

I'll post a video to Facebook/Youtube of me singing "The Wind Beneath My Wings." I can actually sing okay. But I won't. I'll need at least ten people to pledge $5 before I'll do this, but everyone will get the reward. If you can call it that.

Goals
$0 of $1,000 per book
There are numerous huge art fairs in the Cities. I want to go to them. I need entry fees and books. Lots of books. A couple hundred should do to start.
