The Dream Truck is Towed Again

I know the answer to the following question is Attention....Attention.....YAY Attention. But. Why does one brag about things that are unbrag worthy?.....constantly. My old piece of crap truck is dead again. My inspection is tomorrow.....in no way will it pass. My livestock is out wandering the neighborhood.....again. (Still) I only shower every 3-4 days. I keep my house at a balmy 50* in the winter and sometimes the dog water freezes. Maybe it's just me but I have a vehicle that passes inspection and actually runs. I keep my house cool in the summer and warm in the winter....I will be comfortable! I shower Everyday.....and sometimes if I get scuzzy, I may shower twice in one day.....although....if something goes awry I don't get hung up about it. If I don't want "strangers on the internet" talking about my personal business I don't tell them about it! Except I've now just told Everyone about my showering tendencies.....I'll brace myself for the backlash....

  1. I didn't read a post on it, so she's bragging about it on either Facebook or Twitter. Let the mooching for more money commence.

    I am grateful I live in this amazing town. My truck wouldn't start or take a jump in Cambridge at the Hardware store. Not only did the manager let me use the store phone to call my mechanic for a tow truck (big plus of using a rotary phone - I memorized numbers) but also gave me and my dog a ride home to my house.
    This is the month my inspection was due, and the appointment to get the truck inspected was tomorrow at 8AM. Figures.

    1. I know that hardware store too, and they do have polite employees. But if that happened to me, I wouldn't brag about it. Once again, Jenna Woginrich is not-so-subtly asking for financial assistance.

    2. I don't know of any shop that books appointments for routine inspections. You just drive it in, and they're done in a few minutes. Or is the inspection due by the end of the month, & she just realized she only has a few days left to accomplish the task?

      Delete
    3. The shop we use for inspections will do appointments. Helpful when juggling the farm, 2 kids and the job that pays for it all

  3. How exactly has that truck enriched her life? Oh that's right, after not taking care of the last truck, she somehow convinced her fans she would take care of this. I stopped counting at x4 times in her first 6 months of ownership, that this truck proved it was and is a piece of crap. Funded solely by the very people who bought it for her. Oh they are so good to her, by funding for her a piece of crap. After having bailed this truck out time and again, she's back to where she was with the last truck she didn't take care of. Right before her fans funded this truck through Kiva loans, her other truck was not road safe and its inspection was right around the corner.

    So, before this loan is even paid off for this truck, currently it isn't running and its inspection is right around the corner. Coincidence or is it wash, rinse and repeat again.

    Anyone up for another Kiva loan, or maybe another Kickstarter? How about Gofundme for a vintage hipster truck used for snowplowing, hasn't been run in 5 years with zero maintenance records kept, just needs a new tire. Cheap asking price, and I can buy it sight unseen. Can anyone help me out? I need it for the farm and also so that I can still belong to the secret club in Cambridge only known to those who drive vintage hipster trucks.

  5. Don't see an FB post about her dead truck. Must have taken it down. Maybe she didn't get the response she was looking for.

    Here's an idea...regular maintenance.

    My truck is 10, has 178,000+ hard miles of pulling livestock trailers up and down the state and its still running like a champ. But then I take care of my truck so it can take care of me.

    Pretty sad when you consider she rarely drives more than 20 miles.

    2. Unless her fans are going to pay for it, she will not get regular maintenance. No, she will wait til it breaks down and then she can post a sob story and watch the donations roll in. She has this down to a science.

      JFW should not have to pay for mundane repairs! Her money should go to Rag and Bone jeans, highlights, gel nail polish, vinyl records and movies, dontcha know.

    3. Same anon 9:54

      My truck is an '05 w/190K on it. Still working like a dog. Blows my mind how she just tossed her paid-for Dakota aside. Her Ford cost her 2K and has been in the shop so many times I've lost count. And yet the Dakota was beyond help? Huh.

      Delete
    4. She's probably put less than a 1000 miles on it in a year and likely her fans have donated well over $2000 in repairs. It cost $2000, added together that would have more than made road legal and ready the Dakota. She just wanted to feel like a cool kid. Another dream gone awry because she refuses to pay for her own expenses, her own dreams, and her own wants and desires. I want, I beg, I get. She deals with the realities of repairs, payments, maintenance and such the same way- I want, I beg,I get.

      I grow veggies, besides working 40 hours a week at a day job. I'm off today through next Wednesday because I had surgery on my foot. I drive a 2006 Saturn and haul all my veggies around in it. Saturn, at least around here, one of the worst vehicles ever made. Yet, I have a little over 100,000 miles and I've maintained it to the letter. I cannot afford another one and no one around here is handing out new or old ones. I have way too much pride and strong back in me to ever sit on the internet and beg for a vintage muscle car to continue hauling my vegetables around in. Quite honestly it's the wrong thing to do and I think a good many people know it. They just can't help themselves from doling out the loot to support someone else's fantasy life.

  6. Excerpt from the new dark horse book full of jumbled platitudes and odd sentences that make no sense. The only thing that comes to mind...

  9. I tried to read the dark horse thing last night and I didn't get it. I thought it was just late. I read it....most of it....this morning. Yeah....I still don't get it. Additionally, every time she talks about sex I unconsciously utter ewwwww. Just please stop!

    2. Do I hear hoof beats? I do believe they're the first harbinger of an upcoming funds-finding mission about to commence.

      Leave it to her to be so blind that she has no idea - or adores slapping her fans in their dumb faces with this move - how inappropriate the timing of this newest begathon-about-to-be is. As in: Birchthorn.

      Never read any of the BT early stuff, but this was such icky JW that I had to stop after the first paragraph or two. So overwrought and self-consciously dramatic I felt slightly nauseous and leapt off her soiled page (how CA in general feels to me).

      Delete
    3. Why are her Birchthorn backers not holding her feet to the fire? That is the $64,000 question. She has zero motivation to finish it. She has just walked off with $15,000 and except for a few people, not a peep from the others.

      Delete
    4. Honestly, she just takes the cake. Her moves are, among other things, straight out of the double-down family of a/h obnoxious, hey, ya don't like it - well f/u - family of political tactics that drive people nuts. See ya and up the ante.

      Anyone pissed that my fans handed over the down payment for CA (or at least a huge part of it), think I should fund my own damn farm? Well, if you're already agape over my chutzpah, watch me quit my job shortly after arrival and put you guys on the hook to worry after my mortgage, keep the lights on, animals bought & vetted, teeth fixed, liquor bought, vinyl collected, and the wolves from the door, yada yada guys...and you bet yer poodle paws I'll keep it up for every damn one of my busting my buns (not! gotcha!) on the "side of this mountain".

      Annoyed I begged for a loan to buy a crappy hipster truck for the purpose of bragging about my coolness, still, 2 entire years later? Well, I'll be needing another real soon, guys, so better start searching for your credit cards.

      Birchthorn robbery? You ain't seen nothing yet. There is no bottom of the gall barrel on my scrappy farm so keep saving your dollars, lil woofin' antlers. Tee hee. I do believe I rock.

    5. At least one of the commenters looked like a new follower. I don't recognize either one of the names. It's pretty easy to remember who her regular amen charlies are, seeing as comments are crickets or at most 2-5 for posts that used to get 25-30. Should she be growing followers and growing her brand and growing funders instead of losing them?

  11. If her eating habits are as she posts (coffee, fiber bar, who knows what until dinner, then a meal at night) she is sending her body into starvation mode. What that means is the body is not only nutritionally deficient, but also hoarding fat.

    And that will occur whether you are sitting all day watching videos or if you are truly active.

    Replies
    1. And, her eating habits really don't make sense when you reflect on the miles she says she runs. Her body would be screaming for calories.

      But, as always what she says never adds up.

      Delete
    2. She sounds like she's developing an eating disorder. Notice how she cherishes feeling hungry? That's a red flag. She wrote a long post about her day last weekend and it was a pretty busy day--- she didn't eat anything but a Fiber One bar and coffee until she finally had her one meal of the day at night. She got dizzy while she was out running and wondered why. Hmmmm, maybe because her gas tank was empty?

      She writes: "That is why you skip a few meals and ride hungry."

      WTF? No. Don't skip any meals. Treat yourself with respect and feed yourself WELL.

      She's barely lost 20 pounds after all this insane exercising she's been doing for months combined with what sounds like a starvation diet. I dunno, I think she's either full of shit or has an absolutely glacial metabolism. She claims this is all about fitness but if you can run a few hours, do yoga, go swimming and whatever else you are plenty fit. Leads me to believe this is really about appearance.

  13. If that tripe was the first page of her manuscript, I'd have picked it up and put it right back down. It was awful.

    I've ridden horses. I did not find myself shaking my head and thinking, "she nailed that description." Instead I was re-reading, trying to follow a weird and broken train of thought.

    And it is super-ballsy of her to be parading her new manuscript around on her blog when there's been no mention of where Birchthorn is. The last update was 3 months ago, well long enough for layout and cover to be complete and the book to have been delivered at least in e-book format.

    But, fiction is hard, yo.

    Much easier to wax melodic about the sexual high of riding a draft pony.

    1. good point. I have to wonder if her Birchthorn donors left a long time ago out of disgust and that's why we aren't seeing an uprising? Or maybe she's just not letting those comments go through? Either way she is a P.O.S. for posting about another book when Birchthorn hasn't seen the light of day.

      Delete
    2. I agree 100%. Even if all other things were just fine and all that was the matter was Birchthorn being way late, and no updates about it, it is a real shi**y, incomprehensible, irresponsible, rub it in your face, rude a**hole move. Some of these backers paid 100, 1000 dollars. Understandably those that really know her that backed likely sent the $ knowing it was just a begathon. Maybe they thought, just maybe an e-book would come out of it. Others who don't know her at all probably felt sorry for her, because publishers won't publish it. Hence, to them she would never make a living writing books again. I think this is fairly close to the truth if we are talking legitimate writer. She did after all make quite a living off the scam Birchthorn. She is probably preparing the ground work for the next one. She never discussed rewrites which is where I think the book is. If it was just cover art that she was creating that would have been done a long time ago. If it was formatting, well my goodness, my not computer savvy friend learned how to format for e-book release on Amazon in less than a week. It's not the formatting. If she is paying someone else to illustrate, she needs to run some sort of scam to pay for it. There's no amen charlie defense for this type of behavior. She has outright lied to over a couple hundred backers, and if they think just because they cannot hear people complaining that it's alright, they're online scammers too.

  14. The interesting thing to me is that, unless her book becomes a NYT best seller or she does another gofundme for another 15k - - there isn't a lot of money to be made in writing another book. I guess the $ is better than nothing, but I doubt it will give her the financial security she needs.

    1. Book writing may be more about ego than money. She has said many times that she doesn't make much, even with the advance, which she has to cover before she makes another dime. She may have never sold out her advance.

      She could self-pub, but that doesn't pay right away and she's too lazy to market her own stuff. We've seen that before. She doesn't do a book tour because she can't leave or pay the travel expenses.

      Ya know what marketers say about blinking in the dark...you're the only one that knows whats going on. You can't market in a vacuum.

  15. Oh dear Lord... from that excerpt... just as she printed it.

    "This is how never ending feels. Do no confuse it sex, chemical reactions, or other thieves. Those are great things, but slight of hand dealing you experiences of the present. The pull is the real work of Forever. "

    She is a writer? WTF... terrible sentence structures, no proofreading apparently... All to sound hip and trendy, ugh!!!! I ride as well, and farm and all that stuff, and anyone that publishes that crap just has to be dumb as rocks, it's so so so so so so.... purple prose to the max!!!!

  16. It's never a good sign when you have your mechanic's number memorized. She's had this truck barely a year and it's been in and out of the shop ever since. When you consider how little she must drive, it makes it even more incredible. She could have fixed the Dakota up better than new with the money she's dumped into this old wreck.

    Jenna Woginrich: Still waiting to hear what is wrong with the truck. No wheels here. Between the new tires, repaired window, and now the starter not working it may be an extra $1000+ in repairs this month. Wish me luck.

    3. Oh wow. I didn't see that. Guess it doesn't surprise me. My guess is that the donations are drying up slowly as people wise up to her bullshit so she has to beat people over the head with her monetary needs now. Before she could just hint at trouble and she had so many moronic fans that they would donate ad nauseam. Now she probably has to be far more direct because her remaining fans might not be getting her "desperate" (desperate because she really, really does not want to have to get a job) need and they have to have it spelled out for them.

    4. For the naysayers and non believers that may be tuning in -what does JW need to prepare for winter.

      Well, in the winter her waterers freeze so she needs to go out x1 a day and crack the ice.

      Merlin stands in a makeshift carport.

      The pigs sit in a snowbank and she hurls a hay bale at them.

      The goats stand and sleep in 2 ft of shit because she doesn't muck she just piles clean hay on top of dirty hay.

      Feed is hay. It's not like she is out there with a tractor and feed mixer grinding feed.

      Fencing is the same as always-not animal proof and nothing is done different come winter.

      So, what is she really saying when she makes the call for winter prep- hay (something she buys year round)& wood that is chopped and delivered (something she could do herself or with clan for free). That's it folks! I've been reading her blog for 4 winters and it amounts to nothing more than that. Newbies get drawn in and readily empty their pockets thinking they are helping to winterize things and make CAF safe in the NY brutal winter. Instead, JW is safe and sound while she sits day after day inside her house sipping coffee and overdosing on WOW and Reddit and a sh*t ton of movies and premium channel tv.

      If she needs to ready her farm, as real farmers do, she needs to get out and find a job. CAF is her responsibility. It's her name on the bank note, and her taking credit for it's survival, and it's her dream not yours. Anything that important is worth working a 9-5 job for. As it stands if she doesn't and you send $ the pigs will still sit in a snow bank and Merlin will still stand outside all winter long under a car port. No amount of money you can send will winterize CAF, it will just pay a mortgage she cannot afford and allow her to have a 4 month vacation (time to write a new book hint hint).

  20. She is just astounding. As usual, she writes about her woes and says "wish me luck" when what she really means is send me your hard earned-money you suckers. Because I don't want to get a job see? That is NOT part of this gal's scrappy dream. So get your ass in the office or whatever and work your long hours and after that, send me some money. Because this snowflake wants to play on Twitter, swim in the river, order Rag and Bone jeans, and get my hair highlighted. I'm special don't ya know? Far more special than everyone else and definitely too hip and scrappy to have a day job. That's just not me man... send my special ass some money now.

  21. Is she seriously trumpeting that horrible post as a possible book? Not only is it completely awful and nonsensical, she actually has the gall to talk about writing a book when she hasn't produced the ones that her fans coughed up $15,000 for. Her "updates" as to the production of Birchthorn are a joke. Geez Jenna, do you have no integrity at all? Actually I can already answer that.

  22. I just read her dark horse post and all I have to say is WTF? It doesn't even make sense and it just looks like she yanked out a thesaurus and smashed a bunch of descriptive words together for the sake of sounding deep. It pains me to say this, but she actually can write decently on occasion. This is definitely not one of those occasions. That post was just awful.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yes, the dark horse excerpt is pure gibberish--I can't believe that's what she's shopping around. I also agree that it has plenty of eating disorder red flags; she really sounds unhinged in it. I'm sure she posted it so she could include in her book proposal that her fans gave her X number of likes and Y encouraging comments. In fact, she got hardly any reaction for it, because it's so off-putting and puzzling. I saw that she posted it a second time on Facebook, in the hope that she might get more reaction; still mostly crickets. Jenna, crazy drivel makes people uncomfortable.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I tried to read the dark horse excerpt, and couldn't get half-way. She really needs an editor. I know she hates criticism, but there are times when you have to let go of the things you think are most precious in your writing. Usually, when a student or beginning writer thinks they've spilled their blood and guts on a page, it's really terrible writing. Beginners think that expressing emotion is like throwing a tantrum, just toss it all out there and make a big mess, the best writers use restraint in expressing those things, and edit and rewrite, sometimes getting a single page written well can take hours, weeks, years. She has no attention to detail. That's why I think she's a terrible writer.

    As far as the riding goes, I've never heard of anyone leaning forward to canter, nor do you lean around a curve, you'd throw your horse's balance off. She's either doing a terrible job describing riding, or she's a crappy rider.

    1. Maybe she's really riding a motorcycle but spinning it into riding a horse. I know I lean forward on a motorcycle and around curves you kind of lean with the driver. On a horse you do neither.

      She isn't feeling any of it, and no emotion is showing in her writing. If she feels anything she cannot express it. It's not genuine. What takes the place of genuine is gibberish. Her words, just like her life are missing one thing- authenticity.

      I saw a video of her once with Patty's horse- she's a crappy rider. Poor Merlin :(

  27. To our favorite non-poodle, "farmer" extraordinaire:
    How is that cool older POS truck working out for you? So hip, so vintage, so edgey! Luckily, you should have plenty of $$$ to waste on repairing it from stealing $15,000 via a book kick-starter, contest prize money and the many "fundraisers" for the "farm" prior to that. Then there's the money you have taken from good hearted people for goods/services promised and never delivered.
    Only you would waste money on a home land line telephone when you could spend the exact amount for a cell phone that you can use anywhere. Only you would pour money into a POS truck rather than a newer vehicle that will require less repairs. Only you would keep and feed livestock when you can't afford to feed yourself. Only you would shovel animal crap in designer jeans.
    And only you will end up with a federal criminal charge for not paying the correct amount of income taxes.
    A few of us have been communicating via email sharing information and documentation regarding your failure to pay taxes on your income, (**cough** **cough** **donations**), and recently placed a conference call to report you.
    You made a huge mistake when you scammed a relative of a top attorney on the east coast.

    Do I have your attention yet, Scumbag?

    While you will be buried in attorney
    fees, us "poodles" will have free representation for however long needed.
    It may have taken us a while but your victims have finally turned the tables on you. You could have stopped while you were ahead but your never-ending greed became your downfall.

    4. Concerning donations- if you have a donate button on your website and you never ever say anything about it- the government may see that donate button as a "gift" button. You are offering nothing in return- not good writing or bad writing, not more posts or lack of posts, certainly not donate to receive things. Gift- no tax. If you put up a donate button and link it to your postings, your content, your expertise, your giving something then you are getting paid for a service when the donate button is clicked = income.

      No one knows her exact income, she probably doesn't either. PayPal might know most of her income due to funds received through the donate button. Any correspondence, receipt or donation given for a service provided by JW, including her blog is income. Any amount not provided to the IRS is evasion. They'll figure out the rest, believe me.

    5. "But if you are interested in contributing to the work you read here, you certainly can. Some of you have fired me to create illustrations or logos. Others who are more local depend on this farm for food. But for those of you who do not wish to buy a picture, commission a logo, or are too far away to pick up a share of pork - I will occasionally post encouraging you to contribute if you feel the writing deserves to be compensated. If you don't feel it does, do not contribute."

      Contibution, compensate, donate= income. If any part of her PayPal donations have not been reported to the IRS=tax evasion.

      Fortunately as an accountant studying tax law I am an expert.

      It goes without saying, I chuckled a bit when I read the words-" some of you that have fired me" Slip of the tongue? I'm assuming she meant hired although I think a lot more have fired her this hear. I've saved a screen shot of this before it goes -poof!

  28. Hound Doggy - Can you start a new thread called Them's Beggin' Words or something like that where we can comment on subtle and not so subtle begathons? Thanks!

  29. This is an excerpt from a comment on here that I just loved and I think needs to be repeated:

    "If she needs to ready her farm, as real farmers do, she needs to get out and find a job. CAF is her responsibility. It's her name on the bank note, and her taking credit for it's survival, and it's her dream not yours. Anything that important is worth working a 9-5 job for"

    Exactly, anyone that gives this woman money so she can sit on her butt instead of getting a job to take care of herself is a special kind of idiot.

  30. How can she compare herself to NPR?!!! She is NOT NPR! They are a worthwhile organization providing education and quality entertainment to millions. She is just a glorified beggar.

  31. Love the comment on the CAF post "The Pull" from Jo Solo "Wow. One of your worst." Bwahahaha! That writing attempt was truly crappy.
    Snowflake must be rehearsing a snappy comeback if she allowed that comment to go through. Snowflake needs to blow off some steam and get a few atta girls from her followers.

  32. I wrote it, and it was a sarcastic comeback to the other comment. I'd be very surprised, though, if she allows it to stay.

  33. The new dark horse excerpt received one like on Twitter and zero on FB.

    Her latest FB post about olives and mushrooms received 15 likes and 59 comments.

    It's plain as day that piece sucks and most people don't like it. Good luck publishing it!

  34. I noticed the same thing as of now 2 likes on facebook 1 on twitter and 5 comments on the blog. Can you hear the crickets? I couldnt even read it kept nodding off.

  35. "My horse saved me" stories and movies and all are like a dime a dozen. Saved her from what? Drinking? Begging? Being a lazyass?

    Oh yes, some deep dark secret about her scary deep dark thoughts... really, the title is about HER and her dark secrets and how she changed so much with the love of this old pony and her heathen ancestors and celebrity worship and all that jazz. Oh yeah and running 126 miles a day and never tasting sugar for a year, oh no, wait that was 14 hours... still, the struggles, the torment, the trials and challenges of the ONLY unmarried 30 something woman living in the middle of Upper Lower South Slobobia, who is a feminist, you know, but can't seem to do a freaking thing on her own without men bailing her out. (shesh...)

    I can hardly wait for all the copycat books... Like Dark Dog... and Dark Goat and my favorite... Dark Hamster....

  36. okay i just tried to read it again. doesnt make much sense and it doesnt evoke any emotion i know she was trying for and the strange analogy of the blood in the middle really made no sense to me but just made me slightly nauseated the mental image I kept getting was blood shloshing back and forth not some hero on a horse kicking ass and taking names. nope just slightly sick to my stomach.

  37. Anyone else notice that there is no comment section available for her begging post? She seriously has balls asking for money year after year after year. You'd think that after all of these months and years of begging she would figure it out that she is quite obviously not capable of owning a farm. She absolutely can not figure out how to make enough money to get her house heated and her animals fed thru the winter. What a damn fool

    1. See you are just reading it wrong. She isn't begging, she's offering her services! You are PAYING for the privilege of her artwork, graphics, writing and all that. You know, because it's such good content, and worthy... because you know, she is the ONLY heathen-homestead-graphic-artist-fangirl-writer-blogger on the net.

      A very, very, special snowflake. And we need to support her.

  38. There is a quiet movement, slightly off the radar right now, but several bloggers are blogging about it. For instance on Reformation Acres blog the post- 30 skills to build while you are homestead dreaming. I read an article this past week about how even if you live in an apartment, which I do, you can call yourself a homesteader. You can of course call yourself that only if you are fairly self sufficient. Special Snowflake cannot call herself a homesteader, because the very definition of homesteader excludes her. Anyways, I guess even an apartment dweller like myself can feel like a homesteader as long as I am fairly self sufficient, which I am. So for all those dreamers out there, stop please stop dreaming of the some days. Get busy right now. You don't need a farm and you don't need to live vicariously through someone else's experience. This week I am learning how to bake bread. I am in my 50's and still learning and I love it. I already provide a lot of my own vegetables, salsa and through a barter my eggs, meat and milk. Bartering is considered to be a very resourceful way to being self sufficient. If you don't want to can or cannot can or can't afford the equipment -blanch and freeze some veggies. Grow your own herbs. Cheese and yogurt are so easy to make. It took me two tries at each and now I save so much money. There are a lot of blogs out there to satisfy those that cannot and will not ever be able to afford a homestead. Reformation Acres is one of my favorites. The Elliott Homestead is another and they just bought their first farm. I hope this comment helps some that have followed such a train wreck for years find their way to their homesteading dream.

    1. It's the same for people wanting to build a remote cabin. You can start by not using your heat and air cond. Only use candle light or battery lights. Basicly camping in your home or apt. To work all day and then trying to live in a "camping" type off grid situation just takes a huge toll on you physically and emotionally. As it has on Jenna . Thats why you need Family and True Friends to tell you that you have Lost your Mind and you are Failing Miserably. Get your head out of your butt and start Living again. Or you can just Beg for $$$ and not listen to anyone.

  39. Snowflake needs to read this article (and many more). She could definitely learn something, although she has made up her mind she knows everything. Anyway, I thought it was an interesting article about animal behavior.

    Birchthorn is in pre-publication now, the edited manuscript is being reviewed chapter by chapter and then once it is done being reviewed it will go to the publishing house I am hiring to print it. I am not giving a date of shipping until I know from the publisher the estimated times.. There's still formatting, layout, ISBN/library of congress applications, etc. I am going to be using a small publisher, who will have the ebook ready to go first, I think. Again - not sure, it's all one step at a time.

    This book, Dark Horse, is just an unsold manuscript right now. I am writing it because it's a passion project, but it isn't contracted. If I sold it tomorrow and a team of 50 people was working on it, it wouldn't come out before Birchthorn.

    1. Again, dumb move.

      You format and upload the file to CreateSpace. They print on demand and provide an ISBN.

      You format and upload a file for Kindle, and files to other booksellers for ebook.

      THEN! You provide a gift card in the amount of the the cost (that you set) and allow your backers to download ebook or paperback.

      You'd need to find a vanity printer to do a very small run of hardbacks, but let's face it, you don't need a ton of those anyway, since you wan't sell many. Most of your ongoing sales are going to come from ebooks and the occasional paperback.

      Going through CreateSpace, though, means that you don't have boxes of unsold books sitting around your house. Your diehard fans that want a paperback can get one, but you don't have to ship them.

      Ebooks live on Amazon's/B&N/Kobo's cloud and people can buy at will. Bonus! On Amazon, because you have a paperback available through CreateSpace, it shows that you save $X buying the ebook!

      Having this done at a vanity/subsidy publisher, (which I assume she is using, since if she had shopped this story and it was picked up she would have been crowing from the rooftops) costs and arm and a leg (see last line).

      Found this:

      A vanity or subsidy publisher charges a fee to produce a book, or requires the author to buy something as a condition of publication (finished books, editing, publicity, or other services). There’s a wide variety of models for vanity/subsidy publishing, from companies that do little more than produce a print run that’s shipped to the author, to companies that provide a menu of design, editing, distribution, and marketing services in addition to print and digital book production. Costs for vanity/subsidy publishing can rise into the high five-figure range.

      So, where is she getting the money to publish the physical books? Where will she store the extras? We all know that $15k from the Kickstarter is long gone... So, will we see another beg-a-thon to raise money to get Birchthorn done? What will be the excuse then?

    2. There are companies like Blurb that allow you to print books on demand in a variety of formats, complete with dust jackets. And you can even order them one at a time (joys of digital printing). However, the price per book is quite high (about $18-$40 depending on the number of pages, quality of the stock, size, etc.

      So yes, she will need to come up with a fair bit of cash to pay for the physical copies of the book. And I'm sure all the money she received originally is long gone.

  41. If she is looking at how many comments she is getting on her recent stuff she must be FREAKING out. In the old days she would get lots and lots of go jenna you are the best let me give you my money. For a "Famous" writer nobody is freaking listening anymore. She can ask for all the money in the world but its not going to help if nobody is reading. Maybe she has finally called wolf one too many times....

    The Pull which I am sure she thinks is one of her best works makes no sense and is written in a style that approaches the un-readable.

    1 like on Twitter 3 on Facebook and 7 comments on the blog.

    Home Fires 3 likes on Twitter (dont see it on Facebook) and exactly ZERO comments on the blog and that was 24 hours ago. And if there arent any comments that means nobody hit the donate button. Nobody donates to Jenna without drawing attention to the fact hoping that she notices them.

    Little miss snowflake better wake up soon I think the gravy train has ended. And last time I noticed not many grown ups want a cartoon picture unless it was drawn by their kids or grand kids and certainly not willing to pay for one. If drawing cartoon is her new business plan.....uh oh.
