Help me launch my first novel

Switch language to Spanish
Update posted by Alvaro Cubero On May 30, 2019

Today is the last day of the campaign. I would like to thank all people who, in one way or another, helped me get closer to my dream.

I wasn't able to collect all the necessary money for being able to bring 200 copies of the book, but I was able to bring 100, which is good enough for now.

I'm using the rest of the money to promote some ads in Facebook and Amazon, so my novel is known beyond Costa Rica.

Thanks again. Have a happy life. :)

The English version of the novel is live and for sale in Amazon! I have updated the link in the English version of the campaign.

On the other hand, the 100 copies of the Spanish version that I already ordered are on their way. The estimated date of arrival is June 7th. :)

By the morning of today, the campaign had reached US$600 net of funding. With that milestone, I ordered the first 100 copies of the book already! Thanks to everyone who has made this possible. :D

Hello: I made an attempt to request the author copies from Amazon, and I realized they do charge shipping costs, because the weight of the shipment would be too high. So, the US$1,000 would allow me to bring 168 books, approximately. I would still be needing to deduct from that amount the commissions PayPal charges (which has been a different percentage in each donation), the commission GoGetFunding charges (4% of the amount donated) and the commission Banco Nacional will charge (US$11, fixed) to bring the money to my bank account. Let's keep our fingers crossed. :)

¡Ah! Y olvidé agradecer a la gente que ha hecho sus donaciones directamente, lo cual me evita pagar los costos de esta plataforma. No sabía lo altos que eran al principio de la campaña, y creía que no recibiría el dinero a menos que se lograra la meta completa. Sin embargo, ahora comprendo cómo funciona esta plataforma y, si la gente está en Costa Rica, es mejor que me depositen el dinero directamente. :)

Oh! And I forgot to thank the people who have made their donations directly, which spares me the costs of this platform. I didn’t know how high they were at the beginning, and I thought I wouldn’t get the money unless the whole goal was reached. However, I know understand how this platform works, and if people are in Costa Rica, it’s best if they deposit the money directly. :)
