Help Abby "KickStart" her beautiful novel!!!

I recently had the opportunity to read and review a beautiful novel, Letters in Cardboard Boxes by Abby Slovin.  Not only is Abby releasing her novel in a unique and interesting way, one chapter online each week, she is also funding print publication through Kickstarter.

Anyone pledging $15 will receive a paperback; add another $5 and get it signed.  You can even get a personal tour of New York for the right price :-)!!!  

This is a great way to be a part of the creative process AND help a talented author out!

If you are interested, you can find out more about Abby's project and make your pledges HERE.

  1. What is Kickstarter?

    Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects.
    We believe that:
    • A good idea, communicated well, can spread fast and wide.
    • A large group of people can be a tremendous source of money and encouragement.
    Kickstarter is powered by a unique all-or-nothing funding method where projects must be fully-funded or no money changes hands.
  2. Who can fund their project on Kickstarter?

    Kickstarter is focused on creative projects. We're a great way for artists, filmmakers, musicians, designers, writers, illustrators, explorers, curators, performers, and others to bring their projects, events, and dreams to life.
    The word “project” is just as important as “creative” in defining what works on Kickstarter. A project is something finite with a clear beginning and end. Someone can be held accountable to the framework of a project — a project was either completed or it wasn’t — and there are definable expectations that everyone can agree to. This is imperative for every Kickstarter project.
    We know there are a lot of great projects that fall outside of our scope, but Kickstarter is not a place for soliciting donations to causes, charity projects, or general business expenses.
