“Lynx, I’m talking about breaking and entering! This is not a big job, this is–” I gulped. “Illegal. And I can’t ask you to do that. I need to ask you instead to…take action if I don’t come back in a certain time.” His face clouded with disappointment. “You don’t think I can do it?” I snorted. “Of course you can do it. And it would be better for me if you did it because I can’t use spells to get the doors unlocked!” He considered this, along with the plate of food I put in front of him. “If you can’t use spells, who you gonna get to open the door?” “I’m going to have to figure out a way to open it without spells.” He took a bite of food and tried to talk around it. “So why you ain’t going to ask me?”

Not One Stinkin’ Dime

I decided to try an experiment. What would happen, I wondered, if I set-up a crowdfunding appeal on either Kickstarter or Indiegogo? I had written a post, Kickstart Your Indie Projecton Indies Unlimited in favor of Kickstarter, and my fellow IU writer Rich Meyer had written one, Mendicancy – The First Refuge of The Modern Indie, critiquing the idea of independent authors asking for money to fund their book costs. What better way to prove my point that people are happy to fund novels, and to gain visibility for my book at the same time, than to put together a crowdfunding campaign?
