600 For McKenzie

Total Preorders:
601 / 600

(Updated 9/10/23)

For those who may not know, McKenzie Catron suffers from a neurodegenerative disease. Over the years, this disease has stolen her body functions and will only continue to get worse. Lately, it’s been progressing at a much faster and more aggressive pace. She’s developed lesions in her brain, tremors and weakness in her arms and hands, constant migraines, stroke-like episodes, problems disgesting, and blood sugar instability.

All this is in addition to already being wheelchair-bound by her heart, recently losing her gallbladder, and having a hysterectomy. This girl is only in her early twenties and has suffered far more than most of us will face in a lifetime…😢

We know it’s tough to hear, but Micheline and McKenzie have had candid conversations about death together. God willing she’ll live a long life, but with both of us being chronically ill, we’ve been forced to face the prospect, often. 

Our hearts ache for the struggles McKenzie is facing… A Goblin of the Glade is something she has poured her absolute heart and soul into, but now marketing her book for herself is practically impossible.

Lucky for her, she has US, her Whimsical family behind her!

This is why we need YOU! McKenzie’s dream goal was to reach 600 preorders for Goblin prior to release day (November 28, 2023). And we really want to make her DREAM a reality. This is a feat, never accomplished by Whimsical before, but I can’t think of a more fitting first time than with our first author, the one who made Whimsical evolve from me publishing my own books, into helping other authors’ dreams of publishing their own books come true.

How can You help?

We are offering incentives for SHARING and PREORDERING this book’s preorder campaign! Preordering is amazing, but we understand, not everyone is financially able to do so.

But sharing helps so much more than you may even realize. Everyone has unique social circles, so by sharing, you may be introducing someone new to the Whimsical family! Literally EVERY share counts!

Everyone who shares any of the posts linked below OR shares any info about the book’s release will be entered to win a paperback ARC (Advanced Reader’s Copy) of A Goblin of the Glade.

Since all preorders count toward the 600 goal, including the Kindle format, we’ve discounted the Kindle version of A Daughter of the Trolls to 99 cents until we reach our goal! This way you can read the first before the second!

PLEASE help us make McKenzie’s dream a reality! Her condition has significantly worsened over the past month and she is so heartbroken that she can’t take part in this launch campaign. When I tell you she has worked SO HARD on this book… it was truly a labor of love.

Please please PLEASE my Whimsies, help us make this book release a DREAM COME TRUE for McKenzie. It’s easy to get caught up in everyday life but just a few moments of your time could make a world of difference to a smart, beautiful, talented author.
