The jinx

5 Apr

The Indiegogo page for Roll Up the Rim, my upcoming independently published book, is currently malfunctioning. It is not doing the one essential thing it is set up to do: accept contributions to the campaign.

I’ve been working for weeks to get all the pieces in place to make this campaign work. Two and a half days in, almost 90% of the funding was in place. Then, yesterday, against every superstitious instinct in my body, I contacted the editor I’ve hired to tell her I would probably be sending her the manuscript soon. I contacted the printer and told them it looked like the project we had discussed might just come together. I even contacted Ben Brush, the graphic designer, and Steven Berry, the video artist, and told them to send me bills, I’d probably be paying them soon.

On one hand, I know that the universe is not run by jinxes. I don’t really think that letting a little optimism squeak through yesterday is what caused Paypal to malfunction.

On the other hand, if I had it to do over again, I definitely would not write those emails.

I’ll post when things get rectified.
