My First Thriller Novel Project
People always call me by my "middle name" which is Nasrul. I come from a middle class family of five. I'm currently studying at a college about 350 km from my house and yes, I'm always homesick. I love writing. Writing is just my life. I can't live without writing. Since my parents are teachers, I was always seen as the smart one in class although let's be honest here, I'm not. However, I can say, my teacher always praises me for my writing. Which makes me happy :P
I'm currently finishing my first ever novel's manuscript. It will be self-pusblished on amazon (kindle publishing). It is not my first self-publishing "book". A few months ago, I self-publshed a short story (around 3000 words long) to get an overview of how kindle publishing works. I advertised my short story on some advertising platform and I find out its too expensive for a poor college student like me to afford. So, I need your help to advertise my first ever novel. It is very important to me because I spent years developing the idea for the novel. The novel is about a girl who lost her dad after a terrible incident. Her life then revolved around her mother, kid and few other person. By donating in this campaign you can help me to advertise my book to help me reach out to the whole world.
For my project to be possible, I need at least $500 dollars. I will use the advertising features in kindle publishing and the rest will go to other affordable advertising platforms. If there is any remainder, I will use it for the part of the book. If it is possible, I would also hire one of my friends design a better cover for my book.
Here is what you will get if you donate:
1) For any amount, I will place your name in the book plus, I will write an appreciation page with your name written in it, thanking you for your contribution
2) For $5, I will send you a thank you card signed with my name ( it will be sent electronically however because I need to safe money sorry :( ).
3) For $10, I will send you a thank you card (by mail, as in real card) signed with my name.
4) For $20, all of the above and I will send you a copy of the book for free and signed with my name.
5) For $50 and above, I will send you a copy for the book for free, plus a free bookmark plus all al the perks stated above.
If I don't reach my goal, the funds will still be used but for a more affordable advertising service
Why you should donate:
I tried to make my novel as original as possible. You won't be disappointed once you bought the book. This novel is very special for me because I really wanted to be a successful writer since I was a kid.
My Risks and Challenges
Writing this book isn't easy. I had to change my plot many times after I reread it again and again because some parts bore even me. I wouldn't say this project is risky but I definitely would be lying if I said so. After self-publishing a short story few months ago, I know that it is not each to convince people to buy your book but I can tell you one thing. Even if I don't get many people to buy my book, I won't ever give up. I will never think that I wasted any time writing my book. To be honest, I'm someone with zero confidence level and yes, I'm a pessimist. I'm not even sure if you are still reading but I would like to thank you if you do. Even if you don't donate or cannot afford to donate, you can still help me out. Simply share the link to my campaign on Facebook, Twitter, etc. OR you can simply tell people about my book which would be very cool. Lastly, thanks for reading.
