Last week, I wrote a blog post about taking the first step towards writing my novel.
Now the manuscript is with my editor, I have taking a further step to launch a crowd funding page on Indiegogo. http://igg.me/at/twistedinapositiveway
The novel, Twisted in a Positive Way is an inspirational story which takes us into the life of a beautiful young girl, Adaugo growing up in one of the most notorious neighbourhoods in Lagos, Nigeria.
It tells the story of different stages of her life and her constant and endless struggle to reconcile popular belief systems with her own personal convictions. She does this with the help and guidance of a character called her inner being.
It also has an element of romance mixed with spirituality which would leave the reader with the courage to look beyond present circumstances in the pursuit of his or her dreams.
I have set the following achievable milestones in the run up to the publishing date of 23 September 2015;
End of June 2015 – Complete manuscript (done)
Mid-August 2015 – Complete proof-reading, editing and formatting
Early September 2015 – Procure and customise perks
Mid-September 2015 – Printing and production of paperback copies complete
22 September 2015 – Ship! Ship! Ship!
My goal is for everyone interested to place pre-orders in form of taking perks on the crowd funding website. This would help generate publicity for the book prior to its official release date.
