Thank You for the Trope Thesaurus Romance Love & What's Next
4 months ago – Sun, Jul 30, 2023 at 09:54:37 AM

Dear #TeamTrope, 

Thank you for supporting my Trope Thesaurus Romance this past winter/spring! All materials were fulfilled by the end of May; if you have any questions about your order, please contact me directly at [email protected] so we can get things sorted. 

Trope Thesaurus Romance (TTR) digital and print is now available on Amazon and D2D; please feel free to share with your storytelling friends. 

Since TTR is out in the big world, will you consider leaving a review on the platform of your choice? Your honest thoughts help others decide if TTR is a book for them. 

I'm working on my new project, Trope Thesaurus Fantasy and Science Fiction, and planning a Kickstarter in late September.  I'm having a great time deep in the tropes of dragons and aliens. It's pretty awesome to consume massive quantities of sword and spaceship stories in the quest for more tropes. 

BTW, if you're curious about my thoughts on the Barbie movie and tropes, check out my youtube channel @tropetalk for my Never Put Barbie in a Box.

Please sign up for my newsletter to learn about my upcoming releases, courses, presentations, and general tropetalk. 

Thanks again for your support!

Take care,

7 months ago – Tue, Apr 25, 2023 at 01:11:06 AM

Dear #TeamTrope,

I've been a busy Trope Loving Lady recently which is good news for you and exciting for me!

1). All print Trope Thesaurus Romance books were shipped out April 19th via media mail to US backers (if you gave me your address via the survey or email:) GIve them 10 days to reach you. I hope you love them! 

2).  I made a short power point about "What's a Himbo?" for everyone here. This was for reaching my first week goal so thank you!

3). Audiobooks are in your bookfunnel accounts for those who backed over the $60 level or who purchased TTR audio books only.  Everyone who backed at the $60 level has a audio copy of Trope Thesaurus as a thank you for supporting my first Kickstarter!

Download the free Bookfunnel app and you can access the audio books for the next 60 days free (download for yourself to keep before then on your device). I have entered your emails that you used with Kickstarter/Backerkit to load them into your bookfunnel account. You won't get an email from bookfunnel but they are there so take a look! If you don't see it lmk. 

4). Workshop replays have been sent out for the Nuts and Bolts workshop. If you didn't get the link please lmk and I'll shoot it over to you.  That link will be avaible to backers at that level for the next month. 

5).  Digital files (1 page PDF, ebooks and audio files and PDF workbook) have been fulfilled. Are you missing something? LMK because Baby I have the goods!

6). Two more workshops coming up in Mid-May, I'll resend the login info to those who backed at those levels. I'm having fun working on those now! 

7). My AuthorWheel buddies have their KS campaign live! Check out their campaign for info on author branding, story building, and the writing life. I pledged!

8). I'm in Crete and heading to Turkey soon! New adventures. My wifi is challenging so I'll get back to you if you contact me but it may take a bit longer than usual. You can always email me at: [email protected]

Thank You for all your support forTrope Thesaurus Romance and my very first Kickstarter! I've been so overwhelmed by your support for a project so dear to me! 

Talk soon,

April 9th Trope Thesaurus Romance Update:
8 months ago – Sun, Apr 09, 2023 at 05:29:03 PM

Dear #TeamTrope, 

Things are moving along delivery-wise! Exciting times! You can reach me at [email protected] anytime but read this update first. 

1). Digital Format for Trope Thesaurus Romance has been sent out to all! It is in a generic format, which will turn into a Kindle format if uploaded to a Kindle device. If you don't see yours in Kickstarter/Backerkit section, please let me know asap. 

2). If you are missing any other digital items such as Trope Thesaurus, Horror Trope Thesaurus and/or TTR Companion Workbook PDF, please let me know. Keep reading for info about audiobooks. 

3). The 2 Hour Nuts and Bolts Workshop is this Saturday April 15th!  The other 2 classes are in May. And yes they will be recorded. Your Zoom login code (for this and any other workshops if applicable ) should be in your Kickstarter/Backerkit section and/or it may be in an email from me. Please let me know if you don't see yours so we can set you up for our first class. 

4). Print books to US backer will ship later this week and early April 17th week. They will go by media mail and take up to 10 days, don't start haunting your letter carrier just yet. I will send an update when I have them all in the mail. 

5). For those receiving audiobook formats, Bookfunnel has the audio copies of Trope Thesaurus Romance and Trope Thesaurus in your library using the email address you used for Kickstarter/Backerkit.  However, Bookfunnel will not email you that your book(s) are in your library. You must use the email address you used with Kickstarter/Backerkit to get your books because that is the email address I have for you. 

That was my version; here is Bookfunnel's:

Your books have been added to your BookFunnel library! To get your books, just log in to the BookFunnel app or using the email address provided earlier (or using your Kickstarter email, however you collected their email for delivery). If you log in and your BookFunnel library is empty, log in to BookFunnel using your other email address to get your books.

Thank you again for your support and patience. I'm excited to get these goodies out to you all.

Hey #TeamTrope, 

The good news is I hope/pray/think the digital files Trope Thesaurus Romance and your orders (except for audio) are hitting your inboxes. 

As I've struggled mightily with the tech end of this process, you are most likely getting 2 copies of Trope Thesaurus Romance. 

Other rewards are coming over the next few days! 

Talk soon,
