Catch My Breath
Make their story happen
Here’s your chance to help bring some of your favourite characters back to life! Sweet Libby Giles from ‘Second Chance Romance’ and cute Brandon Crooker from ‘The Heart of a Wildflower’ were always destined to meet. Now in ‘Catch My Breath’, the two young southerners are grown up and about to be brought together by their mutual magnetic energy.
By pledging, even as little at $1, you will be helping me focus on writing this story for Wattpad. The money goes to me directly (but only if I hit my goal, otherwise nobody is charged). Wattpad and the payment processor take a small transaction fee and everything else goes to me to help fund my ability to write this next story, and provide rewards to my supporters.
I have self-published before and the middle-man ended up taking the majority of what my readers pay for my books. This is a way for readers to pay writers directly (if you choose to of course) and for us to be so much more connected in the process. It also lets me keep my work up on Wattpad!
I know you’ve seen me post the first few chapters of ‘Catch My Breath’, (and I hope you’re loving it so far!) I plan on posting up to chapter 4 during the campaign, but in order to finish the whole thing, I’ll need to reach my funding goal by the deadline. If I don’t make the goal, I won’t get any of the funding and then won’t be able to finish the story after all. (Also in that case, nobody will be charged for their pledges or receive their rewards either.)
So let’s make the goal!
Every pledge received gets some pretty cool rewards including: early access to content, creative input into the storyline, some cool merchandise, the chance to be a character in the story, etc. Remember, every little bit helps, so let’s make this goal together! Thank you so much!
Estimated date of project completion: November 2013
About fan funding
Fan funding is an experiment on Wattpad that allows readers to support their favorite writers in new ways. The experiment will run with a small group of Wattpad writers, where the writers pitch their story projects and fans like you can directly support the project through monetary pledges, in exchange for awesome exclusive rewards.
Help support your favorite writer bring a story you’ve always wanted to see to life! Keep in mind that the raw unedited version of each story will still be made available on Wattpad, as offering free content will always be one of our core values. Find out more about Fan Funding.
