Welly Chelle Needs You!
Project 2013-05-22 02:09:52 +1200
I’m Rochelle Elliot, known on the interwebs as WellyChelle.
I have a diploma in Creative Writing from Whitireia, and have had success with a number of short stories, including winning the 2012 Cambridge Autumn Short Story competition, being published in Her Business magazine, and having a story accepted by Radio New Zealand.
I’m getting ready to self-publish my first novel, Lighthouse Love, and I’m looking for two things.
Firstly, I want to get the word out there that Lighthouse Love is on it’s way!
Secondly, I am hoping to raise funds to help cover some of the costs of self-publishing.
Ebook conversion, publishing and distribution will cost around $200.00, getting my manuscript professionally edited up to $800.00 and an Ebook Cover design around $600.00.
If you can spare a little to help me on my way to publication, I would be very, very grateful, and will kiss and hug you, and do a happy dance in your honour - but that's not all.
Check out the great rewards on offer;
you can get yourself a WellyChelle shout-out on Facebook and Twitter, a copy of one of my short stories, and check this out -
On Saturday 6th July 2013, there will be a Pop-up Lamington Lounge where you can come and eat delicious lamingtons and meet like minded WellyChelle groupies!
There will be a fabulous raffle, where the winner will take home a free copy of Lighthouse Love (when it is published,) a hat and scarf knitted by Welly-Mammy-Milne (that's my mum!), a beautiful tea cup and a selection of my favourite biscuits!
One lucky person even gets to name a character in Lighthouse Love, but you'll need to get in quick!
Thank you so much for your time and support,
Love WellyChelle xxx
17 days to go!

WE'VE REACHED THE TARGET LOVELY PEOPLE!
I can't tell you how much it means to me that you are all so willing to invest in me, so that I can make this publication dream come true!
Knowing that I have a wee WellyChelle cheer squad behind me makes me more determined than ever; and so excited to get you all reading Lighthouse Love as soon as possible!
Pledge WellyChelle still has 23 days to run, so if you haven't pledged yet, don't worry - there is still time!
The $600 raised so far will cover Ebook conversion and some of the costs of book cover design, which is wonderful and magical and more fabulous than I can tell you!
If you still want to pledge, please know that all funds raised over the target will go directly towards the remaining cost of cover design and professional editing.
Thank you all SO MUCH!!!
A flying start!

What a brilliant start to this WellyChelle adventure. I am overwhelmed at the wonderful people who are pledging to help me make my book publishing dream a reality.
I will steal John Campbell's words, and tell you all how marvelous and tremendous you are!
Only $200 to go and I'll reach my funding target!
On the rewards front, here is a photo of the beautiful tea cup you could win in the WellyChelle raffle:
So keep pledging people! It's the perfect inside activity while the weather is so chilly.
