WE DID IT!
Thanks to all 92 people who believed in the project and backed it with their hard-earned dollars! Someone said to me last week that the pressure was now on, but I see it differently. For me, the pressure was the fundraising period. Writing is the fun part!
Some of you are asking for more draft chapters and I promise to get a few more up this week. One of the great things about publishing through Inkshares is that I will have the benefit of professional developmental editing (something I wouldn't have been able to afford if I'd self-published) so chapters of the book will likely be very different from what you're reading now.
Again, thanks to all of you for believing in the project and believing in me. Especially my family who came through in ways I would have never imagined.
And, thanks to Joshua for telling me in no uncertain terms to just write the damn book!
Thank you for being one of the first 4 backers to contribute to Wailing Wall! In just over 48 hours, nearly $300 has been raised toward the funding goal and I am overwhelmed by your kindness. Please, keep sharing the Word Slave status updated with your networks so that appeals will reach far and wide. Incentives for new backers will be offered periodically. Stay Tuned!
