We admit it--the whole idea of doing crowdfunding sounded impossible. It's tough enough finding readers and selling books. But we figured it was worth a try for The Clear Blue Line. So we started a Pubslush campaign.
The author, Al Sprague, is one of Panama's best-loved artists.
The cover alone--with one of Al's paintings, and Al Pranke's (AMP13) design--is worth the price of the book.
More than that, after a lifetime of painting and teaching art,
Al Sprague has taken up fiction in his 70s. And we're always eager to help new talent.
So we made it easy to participate with levels starting at $5.00. We have beach bags with the cover on them at higher levels. And at the highest levels, we're offering a block print by Al that usually sells between $100 -$200.
Crowdfunding isn't for everyone. But we've already raised some funds. With 18 days left, we may even reach our goal. 10% of all donations will go to support literacy. And everyone who participates gets a great summer read.
We'd love it if you'd join us. You can sign up here.
And you can see more of Al Sprague's art here.
Advance review for The Clear Blue Line
“For a rollicking good time, tag along with Jack Savage and his fearless, hard-drinking spearfishing buddies, whose language is saltier than the sea in which they dive. Ferocious tiger sharks, cut-throat pirates, and the beautiful women they love provide danger at every turn. Al Sprague serves up all the action, romance, and escapist adventure anyone could ask for!”
