So I’ve been looking at Kickstarter’s web site. I see some successful campaigns that I would not have expected and I see some unsuccessful ones that I can understand why they didn’t make it.

I’m undecided. My needs, I believe would be much less than what some asked for. I really can’t decide if this is for me or not.

I looked at the successful ones. I looked at fiction funding. I did not see any historical fiction at all. None that I was aware of anyway.

I have a friend who got funded for a non-fiction book. Anyone know anyone that had been funded by using Kickstarter?

I’m curious about the good and bad of it, if you have any advice for me.

I think it is a good thing. I think it has helped a number of people get their projects going. But is it for me? Hmm.

What do you think?


Let me give you this by way of description.

My novel is an interracial love story set at the end of the Civil War. It is character driven. It is a romance but also involves thoughts and images of war. It brings out the difficulty blacks had during this time period. For instance the Black Codes, miscegenation, the KKK, some politics, a character that passes for white.

Tell me what you think.

Hello. I am the author of the Historical Fiction novel called Mamie Garrison. It is a tale of slavery, abolition, romance and history, set in the years just prior to the Civil War. It is available on Kindle for .99 and also in paperback. Mamie Garrison has a dual storyline. The present day story involves Bella and Andrew finding Mamie's journals. Their story includes romance and paranormal aspects. Mamie's story follows her adventures as an abolitionist through her journals. There are some mysteries as well as an unusual background in Mamie's life. I have completed book two in my series. Colin Garrison, Book 2 of The Garrisons is available at Please see my Colin Garrison page under the menu option for a small sample of this new book. The third and final book in the series, Emily Garrison is now available. Please see above for link. I am 62 with one adult child and one grandchild. I have always enjoyed the written word and have been a voracious reader from my early youth. I am inspired by many authors in the historical fiction genre. I am also a lover of Russian literature, particularly Tolstoy and Dostoevsky. I find great inspiration for creating characters by looking at the ones these two authors have created. There is such a depth to them. I have written for most of my life in one form or another. I have dabbled in poetry and songwriting, and have more started novels than finished ones. In my free time, I like reading, history and travel. I am interested in genealogy and working on my family tree. I live in St Louis.
