Indiegogo Campaign = Success!

I have been rendered speechless. I am without speech. But fear not. I may be lost for words but I make up for it with gratitude.

With 3 days to go, we’ve surpassed my funding goal of $1500. To the people who donated to the campaign: you are magnificent. To the people who shared my many crowdfunding-related updates on Twitter and images on Facebook: you, too, are fantastic. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

(Although… there are 3 more days until the campaign ends. Who knows what could happen between now and then?)

The book is expected out in early February. My lovely editor is doing her first round of edits right now. After the second round of edits, it will go to a proofreader. Then I’ll lay it out in two formats- ebook and paperback. Both will be available for purchase on Amazon. I may eventually direct sell some signed paperbacks from the site, we’ll see.

It’s a lot of steps but the end product will be worth it. Right now I’m just itching to start work on the sequel!

There’s no rest for the wicked, as they say.

[edit] The campaign wrapped up on the evening of Wednesday, Sept. 17, surpassing the $1500 goal by $102. Insane. [/edit]

Tomfoolery Press is born!

Is it just me or are there a million and one adult book blogs out there? The genre is supremely popular but doesn’t intrigue me much.

Do you know what does intrigue me though? Humor books. Fiction, non-fiction, satire, romantic comedies, etc. There is always more room in this world for laughter. That’s where Tomfoolery Press comes in.

fox2-1Tomfoolery Press was originally going to be my personal imprint. I had a hard time finding blogs that cater specifically to humor readers and promote comedy writers. So, I decided my imprint should have two uses.

Authors can submit their books to Tomfoolery Press for FREE for promotion or giveaways. We’ll also be doing author interviews and book reviews. Ads will also be sold at a very competitive price, especially while the site is just getting going.

If anyone would like to pitch in and write a few posts on the blog, please let me know. Authors will be paid in ad space on the website.

You can also follow Tomfoolery Press on:

Or you can join the Tomfoolery Press Humor Writers Facebook group to discuss writing, what you’re working on and network with other humor authors.

7 Questions with Jillianne Hamilton

Yesterday I posted an interview with my novel’s main character, Miss Molly Miranda. Today, I’m going to interview someone else: moi.

7 Questions with Molly Miranda

Jill: Molly, thank you very much for your time. We promise to keep this interview away from the authorities.

Molly: No, I think we’re good. Who even said my name really is “Molly Miranda”? :P

Jill: Oh. Good point.

Molly: Can we get on with this? I have a flight to catch.

Jill: Sure thing! First off, why choose this career field?

Molly: I ask myself that all the time. Mostly? It’s the money. The money is good. Fantastic, actually. I get to travel a lot. The actual act of stealing something from someone’s home… it’s such a rush, ya know? If drug addicts turned to theft for a fix, we’d have a lot less of a drug problem.

Jill: But a lot more theft.

Molly: Only if they’re good at it.

Molly Miranda’s Playlist

Molly Miranda is the character in my debut novel, Molly Miranda: Thief for Hire. I know what you’re wondering about this twenty-something professional burglar.

If she had a playlist, what would it be? Well, my friends. It would include the songs below.

Introducing… Molly Miranda!

I’ve been working on an action/comedy chick lit novel since spring of last year and I’m finally ready to unveil it. It will be released in February of next year. Because nothing says romance like a little crime. ;P

Crowdfunding Campaign!

I cannot believe this summer is going so fast. It’s almost August! It’s been an insane month. Lots of wedding-related stuff going on. I got the book back from one beta reader and my second beta is almost finished. But let’s get to the good stuff, shall we?

I am so thrilled to be able to share some news. I’ll be launching a crowdfunding campaign very soon for my debut comedy/action novel. I’m aiming for a February 2015 release. The cover art is finished and I’m in talks with a couple editors. It’s all very exciting!

I can’t wait to be able to talk about the novel I’ve been working on since April of last year. Finishing a novel was something I’ve wanted to do for most of my life. And I finally did it.

Now I need your help to make my book a reality.

I need to raise $1500 so I can get my novel edited and polished. A little under half of that money goes towards fulfilling the perks I have available. Signed paperbacks, bookmarks, temporary tattoos, graphic design work by yours truly and much more!

I want to throw a big THANK YOU out to my fiancé Colby and my friends Colleen and Patti for helping me out with the preparation of the campaign. Their advice has been invaluable to me.

What to Do While Your Book is in Beta

Sometimes, I am not as patient as I’d like to be.

Currently my book is in its preliminary stages of beta. My mom and boyfriend (er, fiancé now – oh, yeah, I got engaged on Tuesday!) currently have my book and are going through it. Then I have a few other people lined up to take a crack at it.

But what does an impatient writer do while their book is in beta? Here are a few suggestions to occupy you (and thus, keep you from climbing the walls).
