Ahii: 2012 Apocalypse?
October 1, 2011, New York City, NY – What really lies before us after the chaos settles? What happens after the worse you expected comes to pass? Ahii will see, and so should you. Go on kickstarter. com and search Ahii 2.0 and pledge!
SPREAD THE WORD!
I need $10,000 because I plan on redoing and selling my fantasy novel, Ahii: Another story about a girl..., through Ebooks and advertising to get the attention of commercial publishers so I can make a name for myself in the literary world. I have worked for 3 years on my book from concept to production to marketing and finally promotion with no real success. This truly is my last hope in ever starting my career and making my dreams come true. I know one cannot rely on chance or luck to make dreams come to fruition, so that's why I've tried every step of the way with my own two hands to make this happen, even when I was alone with a disability and no one was there to help. Now I'm asking you the public to please help me continue my journey. It would be a true shame if it ended here. Even if you pledge a $1, that $1 would go towards a chapter in my life that for once could have a happy ending. Thank you.
In terms of how I will use the money
To help with added sales I intend to distribute physical copies via street vending as well as donations to public libraries. I want Ahii to be a foothold for my venture into the entertainment and literary field.
Mission: To grow a viable and large enough platform (audience) for Ahii to establish sales and eventual publication by a major publisher. The start up money used will create profit that will generate money in the long term.
I intend on paying popular bloggers and vloggers to feature my book as well as buy up ad-space in magazines and popular websites to expose my book to thousands of the key target audience.
Some of the money will go to the hiring of artists to help do the artwork for the book as well as the unique rewards. I want to commission unknown artists because I feel certain artists are being ignored and set aside due to the involvement of business and fame in the art world. New comers just don't get the much needed exposure to make a living for themselves through their desired art form.
I believe in my story and I believe in my plan to succeed. I just need the money to start the path to the rest of my career in writing.
My product is already in softcover and ebook format as well as an android app. When I redo the book it would be mainly for the inclusion of the artwork and the development of the graphic novel.
