Here it is, the middle of December and I’m still undecided if I should try Kickstarter one more time or not.
Comic #7 – You Can’t Save Everyone – is fully done but at this time, I don’t have the money to have it printed. This is why I’m thinking of doing another Kickstarter.
As most of you know, I’ve had 2 failed Kickstarters. One for Tercona comic #3 in 2020 and recently for The Taming Of April.
In 2020 for comic #3 I was asking for $2000 I only got $150 and for The Taming Of April I was asking for $1000 and I only got $400 something.
If I did a Kickstarter again, since the comic is already done, I would only need around $500 or less to get the money to get copies printed.Anything OVER $500 would be extra and it would also help me fund comic #8 too.
I’m really leaning in this direction. I want to give Kickstarter one more try but…I’m scared I’ll fail again!
I made a few memes to get people excited…if I do this. lol
If I did do another Kickstarter I wouldn’t start getting followers until January or February and I probably won’t launch until April or May.
I’ll make a final decision by the end of December. If I did a Kickstarter for comic #7 would you help fund it?
My book The Taming Of April will be published in March of 2023. This is a rated-R romantic comedy novel. Sex ‘talk’ but nothing too over-the-top spicy.
Can a wild girl find true love? Find out in The Taming Of April coming in March of 2023!
I’m slowly looking for ARC readers. In case you’re unaware, an ARC reader is Advanced Review Copy. Generally, I send you an advanced copy of the book and YOU post a review of it on Amazon, GoodReads or where ever else books are sold.
REMEMBER: The book doesn’t come out until March so I need to get a list of a few people now who might want to read this book and leave a review of it before it goes on sale.
My only requirements are: You must be OVER 18 to read this. (As I said, rated R!) and you must have an Amazon or Goodreads account. Or, if you don’t have either, you need to have a good following on social media so if you leave your own personal review on social media I can share your review with others.
If you want to be an ARC reader, send me an email or contact me via social media. I look forward to hearing from you.
As you know, I try to write a newsletter about once a week or once every other week. This week I decided to add something different. A blog. The blog is NOT going to promote my comics or books but instead give YOU some friendly writing advice and tips.
This week’s writing tip…
Know your target audience!
My first 3 Tercona books –
Tercona: Book 1 – Our New Home,
Tercona: Book 2 – Dr. Q & The Banana Gun and
Tercona: Book 3 – Trinity’s Traps
These bookswere targeted toward girls 8 – 12 years old.
My first comic book was published in 2019. It was called Tercona comic #1 – Who is Thea Baymon? It was targeted toward teens but generally, I like to say – all ages. Comics 2 – 6 also target the same age group.
My romantic comedy novel The Taming Of April is targeted toward adults. If it was a movie it would be rated R. Sex “talk” and teasing but defiantly not pornographic or what some people call “spicy”. The Taming Of April is sent to be published in March of 2023.
As you can see, books, comics, and novels can all target different audiences and different age groups. If you want to sell your books to that age group you have to know who your target audience is.
