So most of you know by now that I have written a horror novella called Fat Trapped. Also I have made the decision to self publish it so I started a Kick Starter campaign at the beginning of October to help with the funding. Well, at the end of October I did not reach my goal of 750.00 that was needed to fund my project. So I have been getting the question “What Now?” from a lot of people. The answer is simply put, “I Don’t Know”.
Trust me folks that is not the answer I want to give you all but it is the only one I have right now. If all goes right I plan on still publishing the book myself and if I can’t get it in to paperback form I am fairly positive that I can get it into E-Book form. I really want to get the book in an audio form too because I love audio books myself so that will be something I will look more into.
Like I said though as of now the above may not happen at all. It depends on how next year goes for me and if I am able to do all this myself.
I am in the editing/rewriting stage as of now with Fat Trapped and am hoping I can have it done by the end of December or January. I truly love the story and think it brings something different to the horror community. While I was writing the story I found myself falling in love with the characters including the Blankenship family. I have more plans for the characters from Fat Trapped (well at least the ones that survived) to be continued in another book as well as a third making it a trilogy.
The Kick Starter campaign taught me one thing. I have amazing & supportive people that surround me even if they don’t like horror, they still supported me and the book. Truly an amazing thing I experienced and I’d like to thank each of you for your support!
Also I would like to thank a good friend of mine, HorrO at http://horrosgoryreviews.blogspot.com/ for all the support he gave me and the book. He does amazing horror reviews of TV & Movies so I urge you to check him out on twitter: @horrosreviews

Again, I am blown away by the support you all continue to give me, thank you from the body of my horror heart! I promise one day Fat Trapped will see the light of day just when & how are the answers I cannot give. Once I know, I promise, you guys will know!
