I love to write. And back in the dark recesses of my mind, I have a desire to write a book someday. It probably won't be a novel (I think I may have ADD; I get distracted and have no idea how to keep the plot going to completion). I'd be more likely to create a book of short stories, or maybe, if I'm feeling particularly artsy-fartsy, a book of poetry.
There's no way I'd ever have the courage to write a memoir, even though I spill my guts plenty here on my blog.
But I have a friend who has that courage. She's finished her manuscript, and it's on her editor's desk.
All she needs is a little bit of $$ help to get it published through Amazon's CreateSpace.
My blogging friend, Becky Lewellen Povich, writes at beckypovich.blogspot.com (funny how the name matches, huh?). Becky's funny, quirky and extremely kind. When I went to my first writers' conference she was so welcoming to me. And she agreed to come and speak at one of our writers' group meetings and shared what she's learned on her journey to become an up-and-coming author.
She has the writing "chops" to have her book be a bestseller (I know - she let me read a couple of chapters, and it's good stuff).
Becky has created a Kickstarter page to ask for funding to make her publishing dreams a reality.
Never heard of Kickstarter?
