Hi.

I'm Christine Merrill award winning romance novelist and author of a lot of books (seriously. Like twenty-something. I've lost count). 

But there's one book I haven't written. That's the sequel to my best reviewed book, NEED TO KNOW.  A lot of you have asked for it. And I've promised. Repeatedly. Every year.

I lied. It's still not done.

I keep getting paid to write other things. Contracted work makes it hard to make time for the side hustle, even when I really, really want to do it. So, I'm still writing. Just  not the book that some of you want to read. And right now, I'm experiencing a bit of a cash shortfall... (Actually, it's more of a nuclear meltdown. But, for dignity's sake, let's not go into it.)

Anyway, this shortfall means that the self-publishing budget from my writing income is going to boring things like food, mortgage, and utilities. It also means that the time in my 2017 schedule for self-publishing projects without guaranteed income might be spent saying "Welcome Walmart shoppers!" instead of writing more books. 

This is where you come in.

If you would consider funding the sequel to NEED TO KNOW, aka WET WORK, I would be eternally grateful.

I'll also be eternally guilty. I was raised by children of the Depression. I hate getting something for nothing. The more money you give, the more guilty I'll be. And the faster I'll write to give you what you want. Because this would be making a contract directly with readers. And generally, when there is a contract and advance, I am pretty reliable about turning out a finished book.

In short, I need you, gentle readers, to make me stay awake nights, worrying about getting this book finished. We'll all feel better when it's done. Really.

This is a short term Patreon, done as soon as this book is finished, or December 31, 2017, whichever comes first.  There may be other books, and other asks. But first things first.
