Question: Have you ever wanted to be an "insider"? Given the opportunity to be involved in the next big thing from the ground up? Here's your chance.
It's been my absolute pleasure to work with the Speculative Fiction author (and founding member of SpecFicNZ) Ripley Patton on her novel, a Young Adult Paranormal Thriller: "Ghost Hand".
Ripley is part of what I think of as the new generation of self-publishing authors. Authors who are pros, they've been published and yes, they have agents. They're also aware publishing is changing, and that self-publishing is now a viable option for both getting your product to market and making a living from it.
I can't show you the cover sans paper wrapper yet as Ripley is currently engaged in the next step of journey - and that's fund raising. There's more to producing a book, even self-producing, than commissioning an awesome cover. So Ripley has unleashed her step-by-step plan for editing and promotion through the crowd-funding website Kickstarter where Ripley offers cool stuff in exchange for your patronage Check out Ripley's Kickstarter HERE.
Ghost Hand is a stand-alone novel, but there are plans for more to create a trilogy. Here's a 'back of the book' type blurb:
