Help A Writer's Dream Come True! Please Pledge & Spread the Word!
In 11 days, my Kickstarter project to self-publish my first novel, S.O.L.A.D.™: Soldiers of Light Against Darkness™, will end.
I hope and believe it will end SUCCESSFULLY, even when it doesn’t appear that it will.
I’ve had many, many people ask me what I’m going to do if the Kickstarter project doesn’t reach its goal.
It’s a question that is asked every time I have started a Kickstarter project and it appeared they would fail.
Even though they didn’t reach their monetary goal, the first two Kickstarter projects succeeded in 1.) allowing people to know about my upcoming best-selling novel 2.) spreading the word about the novel and 3.) increasing my faith.
All of these things have been important to ensure S.O.L.A.D’s SUCCESS, but nothing more than having faith. It’s the reason why I haven’t given up on my dream.
You see, in my mind and heart, S.O.L.A.D.™ is already a best-selling novel series that people can’t get enough of. I’m using the profits to help others reach their dreams and creating programs that help the world.
I’m just walking through the vision God put in my heart to get to the reality that He has promised me!
Yes, things in life discourage me, especially when I look at how far the pledged amount is from the goal.
But, I won’t give up. Whatever the next step is, if the Kickstarter goal is not reached, I’m prepared to work hard and do my part to get to the “Promised Land” God has for me.
I just want to thank everyone who has pledged, who has spread the word, who has sent me words of encouragement, who has rooted for me and who has (and continue to) pray for me and my efforts.
With your support, the road to my destiny has been easier to travel. I hope and pray that in the future, I can do the same for you.
There are 11 days left before the Kickstarter project ends, so if you have pledge, PLEASE PLEDGE NOW & SPREAD THE WORD! http://kck.st/HzzmEt
If you have pledged, please continue to spread the word as much as you can. If you can pledge a little more, please do! Every bit helps.
Thank you so much for being “Soldiers of Light Against Darkness™”!

I just wanted to share with you the amazing day I had yesterday concerning my Kickstarter project to publish my novel, S.O.L.A.D.™: Soldiers of Light Against Darkness™.
Almost $1,100 in pledges were made in less than 24 hours!
(Dancing my happy dance!)
A total of $1,075 was pledged by four people in a 24-hour period, bringing the total amount pledged to $1,561 (which is 15 percent of the goal met)!
I am absolutely overwhelmed right now with joy after seeing people backing me up and supporting my dream and helping this project become a SUCCESS!
We all need each other in this life and I really need you all right now!
There’s only 15 days left before the project ends and $8,439 still needs to be pledged in order for this project to be SUCCESSFUL!
So, tell your friends, family members, co-workers, church members and everyone you meet about this project and asked them to pledge!
And if you haven’t pledged, what are you waiting for? LOL! DO IT NOW! (click this link to pledge http://kck.st/HzzmEt and copy and paste it to everyone you know and on every social site)
This is the closest I have ever been in reaching my goal to publish S.O.L.A.D.™: Soldiers of Light Against Darkness™ and I owe thanks to God and you all for pledging and supporting my dream!
I can’t thank you all enough and I can’t wait to be able to help you all in reaching your dreams!
My heart is happy, my faith is renewed and I can’t wait to see the Kickstarter project pledges hit the $10,000 mark!
Thank you so much and keep spreading the word!

There are only 18 days left before my Kickstarter project ends.
Please, don’t let this dream die! This is my third time trying to raise funds to publish this novel. It’s a great story and you’ll love the characters, themes and messages in it.
But I really NEED YOUR HELP! Please pledge NOW! I really can’t do this on my own.
Please search your hearts. If you have ever had a dream that you knew would be successful if you only had help, you would understand how I feel.
I’ve seen some Kickstarter projects get over $2 million in less than a week’s time to fund a video game (that hadn’t even been created when the project started).
But, I’m not asking for that. I’m asking for people who believe in helping people reach their dreams to help me reach mine so I can help others reach theirs. If you can’t give, I understand that also. But, if you know someone who can, please share this with them.
My novel is complete and it’s ready to be published!
And I’m asking you to spread the word. If you can, please post a link to the project at least twice a day on your social media pages. Tell your co-workers, family members and everyone you come in contact with about this project.
There are future dreamers and current dreamers out there who are watching this project and waiting for it to succeed so that they can step forward and work towards their dreams.
I know this because that’s how I decided to use Kickstarter, from watching others get help to get their dreams funded.
You can read the novel synopsis, check out the first two chapters of the novel, and watch the first “S.O.L.A.D.™ Origins” short animated film (which features characters from the novel and shows you what life is like for them before the novel begins. You can watch that film at http://tinyurl.com/77u8dba
I also wanted to tell you that I’m scheduled to do two interviews in the coming weeks to discuss my novel and my Kickstarter project.
The first interview will be on Community Feedback with host Richard Donnell at 9 a.m. this Sunday. It will air live and I will try to record it for those who are in Jackson, Tennessee.
Mr. Donnell has been nice enough to let me come back on his show and I’m thankful for that.
The second interview will be on Black Writers Space http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blackwritersspace at 7p.m. (CST) on Thursday, May 31. This show is hosted by Tiffany Green a.k.a Ms. Mocha and I thank her for this wonderful opportunity. If you can’t listen to it, it will be available after the show ends.
So, there’s are many things going on and there’s still time to be a part of this AMAZING Kickstarter project!
With your pledge and support, this novel can and will be a SUCCESS!
Thanks for everything you are doing, continue to spread the word, and make sure you pledge!
