Sounds interesting. What do you know about the main character(s) so far? Are they fighting the system as a whole or just escaping to some safe-haven no one knew existed?

It starts out in a "safe haven" but part of the- the closest word I could use is "tension"- is that this safe haven is not necessarily unique, and definitely not unknown. It's paid for by the government (the sponsoring of special scientific and farming projects). The need for global balance and food supply is so apparent that any form of dissent is culturally irrelevant, at the start, even in the circles of the "rebels", at best a tired joke. But there are secrets. A character drops off the map, a computer software physicist (something new), and when she's found...that's as far as I can say. But it will be a long series I think. Mirroring like a show on Netflix or something.

@Free Jones that's amazing! How are you publishing it? I did my first book through Amazon, but I don't wanna go that route for my next (which is fiction/ fantasy). I'm so excited for you! If I buy I copy will you sign it for me?

ye of course ill give you a signed copy! I'm interested as to why you feel that way about amazon because I was thinking of this publisher, lulu publishing, which is like the exact same thing and they sell on amazon, I just want to buy the isbn # myself. Ethically I despise amazon, but I also have a gmail account and use sidewalks and get overwhelmed drawing the line with corporations so to speak. There's this really cool book store in Olympia called Last Word that has a print shop in the back and sells their books on Etsy. Maybe something like that. Whats the name of your book I've been waiting to read it!!!!

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$150.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $150.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
