The generosity of friends, family, blogger buddies, and others has been overwhelming. Like tears in my eyes kind of overwhelming.
As of 1:55 pm Pacific Time today, I am $575 away from my goal.
If you’ve been intending to donate, but have been waylaid by work commitments, financial crunches, or were trapped under something heavy (though I sincerely hope that wasn’t the case), there’s still time. I’ll continue taking PayPal donations through the weekend.
Rather than rehash everything, here are some links where you can get the details:
- My original post about going to Galax VA to research my novel
- FAQ about my novel and the crowdfunding project
- An excerpt from the current draft of The Girl from Galax (PDF file)

A few things to note:
- For those who donate $25, I have 3 more CDs to give away. These CDs are an unofficial soundtrack to The Girl from Galax as they are tunes that motivate and inspire my writing.
- PayPal accepts MasterCard, Visa, AmEx, and Discover, so you don’t have to set up a special account with them in order to donate.
- If you prefer to send a check, please email me for my mailing address.
Again, my heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported this project. Your donations, Facebook posts, tweets and retweets, and other promotional efforts mean so much to me.
