How do you like my Rogue Cloud Genie? I grabbed this shot on my iPhone while riding my bicycle home from work one day. At the time, I knew I would use the pic somewhere. Now, months later, I see the perfect marriage of picture and text – at least from my somewhat warped perspective.
We, the Rogues Gallery Writers are a writing mastermind group that meets every week so that we may impact our world in some Roguish manner. We’ve written memoirs, poetry, short stories, long stories, literary fiction, murder mysteries, romantic pieces, violent pieces, yes – sexual pieces. Up until now, though, we have not all contributed to the same story.
The Method Writers has been a journey into writing Nirvana. We are four writers dedicated to a project, all contributing our unique skills and incredible insights into a novel for you, the reader, to enjoy. We’ve put a ton of effort into creating something not only readable, but intriguing and enjoyable.
The genie is here to oversee our Kickstarter.com project. We decided to give this book a proper launch but found we have no finances with which to take on this grand and noble task. So we looked to Kickstarter to help us out. And the genie. We cannot leave out the genie…
Kickstarter is a site that helps fund projects like ours. I don’t know if you realize this or not, but it takes a little money to get a book started off properly where it has a chance to be breathed into the public consciousness. At Kickstarter, people like you go there to look at projects and then pledge some financial assistance to said project.
You DO get something in return. We don’t let you walk away empty handed. When you go out to Kickstarter and pledge some assistance to our project (The Method Writers), you will receive a reward. For every level of donation to our project, there is a corresponding reward related to the project for those who pledge.
Just ‘liking’ our project does not really help all that much other than moral support. What we need is for everyone who likes what we are doing to commit to pledging something. Heck, we have 23 different rewards for the varying amounts of pledges. Pledge one dollar (c’mon, you can do that!) you will receive a bookmark with the cover of the book on it. For $30, get a copy of the book hot off the presses! Want the book autographed by all four authors? C’mon! You can spring for $20 more!
Remember, these pledges are to help us get the book printed AND a level of marketing and promotion. Check us out by clicking on this link: The Method Writers. Keep in mind, the Rogue Genie is watching over us (and you!) to help this project get life and fly. We really do need your help. Go out and claim your reward by pledging to our project. Watch the video and read about what is involved in this project and we believe you will feel great about helping out!
