Kick Starter

If you would like to assist me my story is here.

When Josephine Marlin woke in a pitch black windowless room, she had no idea that she was in the fight of her life. Her friends fight at her side against the persistent darkness. So why is she betrayed? The world she once knew, the friends she thought she knew, transform around her and are essential for her survival.

This group of friends have become soldiers, The Alternatives. They are the protectors of humanities only hope and leaders of men in the coming War. Do they win the skirmishes of the night and make it to the hospital in time to save Pony? Or is all hope lost, snatched from The Alternatives grasp?

I am seeking a kick-start to be able to purchase the Mac manuscript software, Vellum. Vellum automatically formats, typesets a manuscript for publishing in both Ebook and Paper back formats, with the click of a button. I am almost ready to press that button. I have used Vellum while writing my book, but the license costs around $300AUD with the extra $20 I am seeking, to cover Kick-starters fees.

What is Vellum

I would like to show you what Vellum is and why it is an important tool for my publishing of all of my books into the future.

Vellum adds classic touches like custom drop caps and ornamental flourishes are included in both print and ebook editions. So whether my readers prefer a paperback or a Paperwhite, they will see a beautiful, professionally-formatted book every time.

Vellum gives each book classic touches like custom drop caps and ornamental flourishes are included in both print and ebook editions. So whether my readers prefer a paperback or a Paperwhite, they will see a beautiful, professionally-formatted book every time.

Vellum is used to get the most out of ebooks, it:

Assembles box sets of a series Produces advance copies for early feedback Connects with links to Facebook and Twitter Adds store links and help readers buy your next book Generates ebooks for Kindle, iBooks, Kobo, and more With Vellum’s instant turnaround, I could do it all on schedule.

It has everything I require to ready my manuscripts for print. It formats page numbers, margins, headers, fonts and Line spacing. Setup that can take hours elsewhere, would happen automatically with every book I create. Vellum goes beyond the basics to prevent widows, balance page spreads, and avoid short pages — all automatically. I’d publish a book that looked like it took day

s to create.

Vellum does it in minutes

With Vellum I simply import my manuscript and it builds everything for my book, including a Title Page and Table of Contents. It auto add a Copyright page and backmatter.

I can do that right in Vellum.

I can browse through Vellum’s Book Styles to find the best match for my book. And while I

do, Vellum applies my selection to every chapter (even if I

add new ones).

I can use Vellum’s Preview to see how my ebook will appear on a range of devices, and see how my book will look in print. The Preview updates instantly with every edit. When I’m happy with my book, I am able to generate ebooks and print editions, all at once. Every edition stays in sync, even when I need to make changes.
