"Elizabeth Donald is a writer fond of things that go chomp in the night," or so I usually begin my bio. My novels include vampires, zombies, aliens, evil teddy bears, ghosts and the occasional homicidal human. I am a three-time winner of the Darrell Award, a Prism nominee and have received critical acclaim for my work in speculative fiction. With five books on the shelf and several more ebooks published over the last ten years, I have a number of new projects on their way in the small press - but that isn't why I'm seeking your support.
In October, I will be required to take a one-week furlough from my day job as a newspaper reporter... With the constraints of life as a reporter, I simply have not been able to travel farther than about five hours from my home near St. Louis... But time off work isn't so much of an issue when you're on furlough. So I'm planning an ambitious book tour, taking me halfway across the nation and back again. I want to spend my furlough speaking and signing in the places I've never been able to go, meeting the readers who've asked me to appear for years.
In addition, a new novella is in the works! Gethsemene is a unique work that will be released to backers of this tour months before its popular release. This project will help fund that release, with a projected launch in December.
How far will I get? That depends on you!
In addition, you get to follow along with me! I'll be Tweeting, blogging and posting photos across my journey, tagged #furloughtour. I'm looking forward to seeing things I've never seen, meeting new people and sharing everything I see with all of you. It's going to be a great adventure!
So earn the ability to say you funded a horror book tour and visit Elizabeth K Donald's Kickstarter link today - only a few days left!!!
