Acknowledgments Barb is way too old to play the submit a manuscript, wait months for a rejection letter, submit to another publisher, wait for another rejection game, a game that can go on for years. She decided to self-publish. That, of course, meant raising funds. She learned about Kickstarter crowdfunding and decided to give it a try. Denise agreed to try crowd-funding. So many wonderful Backers responded that we met our goal five days early!
More coming soon!
