NERD!VERSE!

I am one lucky lady. And just in case I ever forget that, I only have to look at the below list of friends and family to remind me. As a lot of you know, I am currently raising funds to self publish my book of nerd poetry called NERD!VERSE. Due to my unique style of poetry, which tends to be a mix of classic verse form and Shel Silverstein rhyme (and strong language), traditional publishers have perpetually decided against printing my book. So, in the spirit of today's crowd-funding trend, I turned to Indiegogo and the generosity of the people I know to help me in my quest for self-publication. So far I have raised more than half of my goal, with more than a month to go.

To those people who have donated and shared my campaign with others, I am humbled by your confidence in me and my writing ability. Thank you so much for your support. <3

Below is a list of people who are helping me make my self-publishing dreams come true. Because so many of these people are talented in their own right, I have tried to include links to their websites whenever applicable. If I do not have a link for you, please message me or leave a comment and I will add it to the list.
