I know that most of you have already purchased your copy (or copies) of The First. Many have already read and reviewed the book.
If you fall into that category, this message is not directly for you. However, you can still help.
The Kickstarter project ends in one week (just seven days!), and we desperately need your assistance. Just a moment of your time. In order to receive any funding, the project goal of $600 MUST be met. It's all or nothing with a crowdfunding project. Those are just the rules of the game. If you are a previous backer from our first Kicktstarter, or if you are not interested in an audiobook, all I ask is that you SHARE this email (or the links contained therein) to anyone you know who might like an audiobook copy. Some of the reward levels are for ebook or signed print copy only, so those are also available for anyone still wanting one of those versions instead.
If you are more of an audiobook person, or if you have a long commute to work or school, you might be interested in checking out the Kickstarter to see if you'd like to fund our project and receive copies of the The First (audiobook, ebook, and/or signed print copies are available as rewards). My husband drives an hour or more each way (with traffic) to work five days a week, and if he isn't listening to a podcast, he usually has an audiobook on hand. It's an entertaining way to pass the time and relieve the stress of driving through traffic. My commute to work isn't long, but I do enjoy audiobooks during road trips. Many people just are not readers, and that's okay. Books and stories can still be enjoyed in audiobook format.
Check out the Kickstarter for the audiobook project. The video earned us a spot as a Kickstarter staff pick (seriously!), so I can promise you that it is very well done. Please help make the project successful by sharing it on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or any other social media. By going to the link, you have the option right on the page to share the project through several options. You can even embed the project video.
Remember, we only have seven days left. If this doesn't get funded, we lose any potential fans that have already funded the project. All I ask is that you take a look and share this with anyone you can.
Thank you so much for sticking with me and supporting my dream!
Lisa M. Green, author of The First
