Maylie and the Maze by M.L. Tarpley

Hi Everyone,

I am so excited to share this book with you! It’s coming out this fall! One of the cool opportunities with this book is that you can play a role in helping it get published! It’s a wonderful way to help support an author and get some awesome cool stuff as well. Check out all the information below. 🙂 Happy Reading! Becca

About the Book

Ten-year-old Maylie Montes’s dream is to become an author, but she has a problem. She can’t finish a story. Not a single one.

Her second problem is Camden, her annoying twin brother, who is determined to ruin their summer traveling through Europe with their famous photographer aunt and spunky grandma.

The first stop is England where a castle and maze, a new British friend, and a lot of weird words await Maylie—but the first item on her itinerary is to learn how to write, so she can finally finish a story. However, this goal may land her a one-way ticket home after her writing targets her brother in a spooky story involving a nighttime maze full of monsters. And Camden has his own plans, leaving Maylie to wonder if her imagination has actually become a reality.

What is Kickstarter? And why use it?

If you’re new to Kickstarter, it’s an online platform to crowd fund a project, invention, or in this case, a book. It’s a way to help creators of the projects obtain funding so they can release their product/book.

In my case, the funding will go toward paying the amazing artist for the illustrations and to fulfill your special packages and other publishing expenses.

So to back a project you ta-Mlke a look at all the special packages of exclusive items or experiences being offered and you pledge funds to back a package.

The unique thing is you’re not charged for the order just yet. Only if the project reaches its minimum funding goal are you charged and are set to actually receive your purchase.

It’s an all or nothing thing, which is exciting and a bit frightening, so I definitely need your help to meet my goal and have Maylie’s story truly come to life! –THANK YOU a million!!  M.L.Tarpley
