The Tyranny of Aquarius by Sorelliena

I married a 'broken hearted Aquarius' for nearly ten years. I had to leave him because he was so broken about himself that he put menta...

Hello, everyone. I'm 35, living with my elderly parents. I am a newly published author with Rebel Ink Press . I've been writing all my life and to have my first book published this is a blessing. I need that blessing to go further if I want my full dream to come true.

I'm needing your help in getting my book out there outside of the internet. I have to do book signings, promotions at conventions, and go to unique locations to promote it. What I have in mind will help me in the long run.

The thing is, I'm employed, but I'm having trouble getting art students to help pay for what I need and it's most certainly not enough to go by. I do work in retail, but hours are being seriously cut. Other than that, I'm living with my parents on their fixed income and I don't want to ask them for help with my book promoting. I want to do this on my own, but I have hardly anything in my account to show for it. This worries me greatly.

To promote the book effectively, I'll need the following:
Maintain my Website
Business Cards
Roll Up Banner Poster
Table Poster
Book/Writer/SciFi/Fantasy Conventions for 2016
Hotel
Original Artwork Prints
New Kids On The Block Cruise (2016, see explaination below)

Here's the reason for the NKOTB cruise -
The series of novels (4 total, I'm currently working on book 2) is a hinted patch work of my love for the band.  A woven tale of what NKOTB did for me psychologically to keep me alive while I was bullied in school, harsh family life and an abusive marriage. I'm honoring them by writing them into a myth. If I can just get to them, share with them what I've done, I can take the next step in my dream coming true. (The NKOTB Cruise is NOT the dream, it is only a stoppoing point for promoting the books and Myth)

My first novel in the collection: Soul's Little Lie is out on ebook for Part 1 and Part 2 right now. Part 3 comes out April 10th.  The paperback should be out by May. The Editor & Chief of Rebel Ink Press told me I would have a whole box full to sell out there in the world. I can sell anything and I want to prove to myself I can do this on my own.

You can donate any amount you want. Donating a lower amount than $50, I will send you a hand written thank you note and with praise on my website and author Facebook page.

Donating $50 gets you free Ebook copy of my novel

Donating $100 gets you a signed paperback

Donating $200 gets you a signed paperback and signed book cover print

Donating $500 gets you a signed paperback, signed book cover print , signed print of original illustrated artwork of your choice (Soul's Little Lie Concept Cover   or Dramatic Scene Concept ) and free Ebook copy

With your help my dreams can come true that much sooner.

I can't stand it any more!  I hope George gets the next novel out soon so everyone knows the dark secret I've been keeping all these years.  It's killing me.  BTW, thanks for faving me, Lyanna Stark, from the A Song of Ice and Fire series.
