A Kickstarter Project for Readers of YA

Okay, we all love to read, but don't we all really love the feel of a book in our hands? Its one of the very small downsides to being an Indie author. Making your book into a paperback, a high quality, people would want it paperback, can be costly.

My good friend Elise Stokes has written 2 fantastic YA novels and is now turning them into paperbacks for her those who don't have e-readers. But, she needs a little help.

Step in Kickstarter! For a small donation, you (and yes I've already donated!) can help Elise get her books into the holy grail of being bound, and for that, you get some cool prizes for as little as a $5!

Here's a little about Elise and Cassidy Jones-

"Elise Stokes is a gifted writer who delivers all of my favorite middle school and high school mystery novels and T.V. shows rolled into one and repackaged with a sleek, modern story line and unique thrilling characters." --Stephanie Laymon, Five Alarm Book Reviews

Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula
"Fourteen-year-old Cassidy Jones wakes up the morning after a minor accident in the laboratory of a world-renowned geneticist to discover that her body has undergone some bizarre physical changes. Her senses, strength, and speed have been radically enhanced.

After exploring her newfound abilities, Cassidy learns that the geneticist, Professor Serena Phillips, is missing and that foul play is suspected. Terrified that her physical changes and Professor Phillips' disappearance are somehow connected, Cassidy decides to keep her strange transformation a secret. That is, until she meets the professor's brilliant and mysterious fifteen-year-old son, Emery. . . "

Cassidy Jones and the Vulcan's Gift

Two months after being infected with a strange retrovirus, Cassidy Jones continues to live a double life while she struggles to master her newly gained superpowers. High school has become the only normal thing left in her life--except for tall, dark, and handsome Emery Phillips, who shadows her every move, making sure she doesn't reveal her secret. Then an overnight sleepover at Catamount Mountain Zoo takes a menacing turn, putting everything at risk. 

So, please take the time to at least go and check it out, I think this is a worthy project and I hope you do to!
