Sponsorship for NaNoWriMo


For the month of November I am asking for sponsorship while I write for NaNoWriMo 2011. This fundraising will go to inspire 300,000 potential writers\authors. It also helps the Office of Letters and Lights continue to do charity work for classrooms and children around the globe.

I don’t ask much but whatever you may be able to sponsor me for will be very much appreciated.

Fallen


Fallen is now in it’s final and third draft. I aim on releasing this book as an e-pub for kindle and kobo e-readers. I will also be releasing a PDF format for those of you who prefer electronic books on your computer. The release date will likely be January 2012.

Here’s a sneak peak at the cover:

Synopsis:

When Kara, a green eyed and red haired college vixen, runs into a handsome but mysterious man little did she know both love and chaos would ensue in the seedy under belly of New Orleans City streets. She finds herself and her group of college friends in a dangerous battle with an ancient Egyptian demon goddess named Sekhmet who has possessed Kara’s new Louisiana born beau, Chance. As the feline demon begins to dwindle their group down one person at a time, feeding on their souls, a battle ensues that could mean life and death for all of them. Love may not be enough to conquer all in this epic battle of demon versus mortal.

Meanwhile, Kara’s new boyfriend, Chance with his soft Southern Creole drawl and dual colored eyes, finds himself embroiled with passion for the young college beauty while the demon traps him deeper into her web of desire to feed. As their love grows for each other, Chance’s secret life becomes a force to reckon with when the demon starts destroying those around him out of a jealous rage. When his darker half rips apart Kara’s friends it forces him to face the truth of his dual life in order to save the ones he loves and cares about. With their help Chance takes his shot in the dark to rid himself of the demon that has been riding on the cowboy’s back even if that means he must sacrifice his own life and the love of his woman.

álainn e-pub


What is álainn? (pronounced aw-lin). It is Irish Gaelic for the word beautiful. As in beautiful e-pub services. I strive for perfection when I create, a perfection that comes nothing short of beautiful and unique. At álainn I also strive for affordable services for everyone. It’s one thing to strive for publication or becoming a published author but it’s another to be all that and busting the bank accounts at the same time.

I’m a mother of a rather large brood of five children. I know what it’s like to have to figure out how to do things like book trailers, manuscript editing, desktop publishing and typography settings. Formating your manuscript can be daunting let alone file extensions like .mobi or .epub or even PDF conversions. I was trained to do these things and now I want to share my skill set with my fellow authors published or not.

You, the aspiring author, should be able to be free to just write and not have to worry about covers and trailers or anything else but writing. Let me help you accomplish what you came here for. To write, to succeed and to show off the unique styles of your writing with beautiful covers, trailers, banners for your websites and much more. Let me help you get to the publishing world with artwork and documentation that puts you ahead of all the rest and gets you noticed faster!

Drop álainn e-pub a line and see where beautiful comes from!
