Hi, and welcome to my fundraising page!

I'm Laura Roberts, an indie author, editor and publisher. I run the online literary magazine Black Heart, as well as the micro-press Buttontapper Press. I'm based in San Diego, but publish for readers all over the world. My current project is a book called San Diego from A to Z, which you can read in snippets on my blog as I write it throughout the month of April. I'll also be writing a special book on the day of the Blazing Laptops Write-a-Thon, tentatively titled Blazing Laptops: How to Write an Entire Book, Make New Friends, and Experience A Writing Community in Just One Day.

Why contribute to San Diego Writers Ink? Because they help support San Diego's literary community with great classes, event, an affordable annual conference, and lots more.

PLUS, if you kick in at least $5 to my campaign, you'll get some cool swag!

Here's what you could get, in return for your donation:

  • $5: Get your name in the acknowledgements section of the book. Every dollar counts, as does every donor. Thank you!
  • $10: Your name in the acknowledgements, plus a digital copy of my Blazing Laptops book - to see what literary madness your donation has encouraged.
  • $15: All of the above, plus a digital copy of my book Confessions of a 3-Day Novelist: How to Write an Entire Book in Just 72 Hours.
  • $25: All of the above, plus a personalized handwritten postcard from me (sent after the event ends).
  • $50: All of the above, plus a digital copy of my forthcoming book, San Diego from A to Z.
  • $100: All of the above, plus free digital copies of every book I've already written.
  • $500: All of the above PLUS free digital copies of everything else I ever write!

If you love reading, writing, San Diego - or all of the above! - I encourage you to support this fundraising campaign to help give back to the writing community here in San Diego.

Thanks for reading, and thanks for your support!

All participants must either be sponsored for the minimum of $150 or pay that amount themselves in order to be a part of the experience.  

The writers in the Write-a-Thon get free breakfast and lunch, plus the fun of the day itself--including chair yoga, a lunch talk by a published author, special activities, etc.  Incentives and prizes are given for people who raise the most money for SDWI.
