As a Jersey Shore resident, I have experienced the destruction that Hurricane Sandy has brought to communities. I have also seen how hard organizations such as the American Red Cross are working to keep people safe, warm, and fed as we move into the colder months.
If you’re able, please consider helping with a small donation to the Red Cross here: http://www.redcross.org/hurricane-sandy or please visit this link at NBCNews.com for a list of other ways to help: http://rockcenter.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/11/01/14861838-hurricane-sandy-how-you-can-help?lite
New Jersey and New York are so thankful to everyone around the country and the world who have helped in any way.
For those who have been following the publishing of my debut novel, To Breathe Free, I wanted to share my latest Kickstarter update. It thanks my supporters for allowing me more time and outlines what I’m working on with my manuscript.
I welcome you to read the update here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tobreathefree/to-breathe-free-the-first-great-american-e-novel/posts/328207
Thank you everyone! Our Kickstarter project succeeded today.
Thank you for believing in my Grandfather’s dreams and my own dreams.
I want to first thank you all for reading these updates on my novel’s Kickstarter project and thank you for your support. We just hit a major milestone of 50 backers and now are at 64% of our goal (or $1,284). However, only 3 days remain to achieve the last 36% of our goal.
If you haven’t pledged, please consider doing so to show your support for Lyved and the journey to fulfill my late Grandfather’s literary dreams.
$1 is the lowest pledge level but helps greatly in getting closer to our goal.
$4 is the next pledge level and allows you to receive a copy of To Breathe Free is your choice digital format (epub or mobi).
$8 allows you to receive a copy, as well as a copy for one friend.
$25 allows you to receive 2 copies of To Breathe Free—1 in epub and 1 in mobi—, a copy for a friend, AND you will also receive a limited edition greeting card print of To Breathe Free’s cover art on the front and on the back a handwritten thank you, my signature, and the date.
And lastly for a pledge of $500, you will bring our project to almost 90% of its goal and in return you will receive: 2 copies for yourself, 1 copy for up to 25 family members/friends, a limited edition greeting card print as described above, AND the only printed manuscript of To Breathe Free that I will be using to make handwritten revisions on. Since To Breathe Free is striving to be the first “Great American e-Novel” and will not be available in printed format—now or in the future—this will be a VERY RARE document to own.
