Indiegogo steps in where Kickstarter would not!  

You Guys Did It!

Indiegogo has accepted an identical fundraising campaign to publish 15 Minutes!

Thank you Indiegogo for taking a chance on me after Kickstarter rejected my novel for being too controversial!

This is the power of people using their voice and writing letters. This is What This Book Is About! Thank you to everyone who publicly voiced their opinion on this matter!

If you want to see 15 Minutes published as an actual novel: Please click this link and donate... even the smallest amount helps!


We now have just 60 days to collect this money. It is all or nothing funding. If we do not meet the $8,000 goal to publish the novel, Indiegogo will return all of your money.




Make this happen: By the people... for the people.

Awesome news!

I just got home from a coast-to-coast plane trip (you know how that goes) so I'm going to bed but I'll signal boost this tomorrow when I can give it my full attention (and not too tired to type my CC#, lol).

Thank you so much! And thank you for encouraging me the other day.

I was about to give up.

I really... really... hope this works and we get the funding!

Oh how I hope.

You're welcome, I was just throwing out brainstorming options so you wouldn't think Kickstarter was your only chance. I felt they made it pretty clear they had certain inflexible constrictions so you needed to pursue other avenues.

I'm not a huge interwebs presence by any means but I will try to get this out as best as I can, good luck!

I'll donate after you post the last chapter. I think a lot of people will but they want to know how it ends first. Everyone who reads this should donate at least a dollar. (I'll donate $10 as that is what I would have paid to read any book of this length.) I think too many people take the time and effort that goes into writing fanfics, or any story, for granted. People..if you are given an opportunity to give back then you should!

Hey! Thank you so much for reading this story! And $10 is an awesome amount and there is a gift package on there for $10 as well, just select the package. If the project is funded (otherwise your money will be returned). You will get what is in the package too :)

And I'm not asking to be paid for writing a fanfic, I would never do that. Just several people on tumblr have said "why don't you change the names and publish this?" and the answer is because no mainstream publisher would take a book this long about a subject this.... off. But I would like to publish and see if there are enough readers who want physical copies of the story out there who would help me and donate.

Every penny will go towards publishing the book. On Tumblr there is a long list of what things are being bought with the money as well. And again, if we don't reach the full amount in the remaining 54 days... all money will be returned by indiegogo to the donors. I will receive nothing.

That way you don't risk giving money to a stranger who will just take it and leave not knowing if there was even enough to bring about the desired result.

That you would think this story is worth 10 dollars is amazing to me, and I am so flattered. Thank you.

Thank you so much for helping out.

I hope you like the final chapter. It is up now.
