Your Name in Print


In my next book, I will add a special thanks to my sponsors and list off anyone who contributes. This list will appear in both the digital and paperback versions.


Your name will appear in my next book, in both the digital and paperback version.

That’s right…
For the low, low price of just $100, now you too can achieve immortality by having your name forever etched within a book!

But be warned, this may well turn you into an overnight celebrity. Imagine how your life will change when billions of people rush out to buy a copy and see your name in it? And when the novel goes on to win a Pulitzer… lookout! 

And did I mention this could make you rich? You could have a friend follow you around snapping “informal” shots on her iPhone. When she sells them to the paparazzi, you guys will be rolling in dough!

WOAH! Even better! You could set up a website for all your fans and sell copies of my book, signed by you!!!

Alright alright, I’ll stop.

In all seriousness, I’m just trying to find fun ways to raise some money here. The cost to produce one book will be $2,500. I’ve already tucked away $2,000. That means I’m only $500 away from being able to publish my next book.

All I need to do now is find five people who think it would be fun to see their name in my next book.

Thank you for your support,
Mitty Walters

In the box labeled “Please type name as you wish it to appear”, please type in the name you want me to use *exactly* as you wish it to appear in my book. If you prefer to use a nickname, no problem.

In fact, it doesn’t even have to be your name. If you happen to be buying this spot as a gift for your faithful cat, I will happily thank “Captain Meow Meow” in print for sponsoring my book.

If you’d prefer to remain anonymous, simply type: ANONYMOUS.

In the event you would like to add more than one name for some reason, you will need to ADD TO CART one at a time so that you can specify a different name for each copy.

I don’t mind if you’d like me to thank “Bob & Betty Smith” or “The Jones Family”, etc.

Because I am an “indie” author. 

A while back, I received an offer for Breaking Gravity from a very large publisher. Setting aside the fact that their offer wasn’t exactly spectacular, the main reason I turned them away was that writing is what I do for fun. If I accepted their money, then writing becomes work.

I ended up thanking them respectfully and turning them away politely.

The fact that a real publisher might be interested in my work was quite shocking to me. I decided maybe I should take this story telling thing a bit more seriously, so I started writing again. 

I’m currently in the process of wrapping up two new novels. I expect to have at least one, if not both, ready to hand over to my editor by the end of this summer (2018).

And now I’m having regrets. Turning my back on the conventional route means that all the publishing costs fall on me. Again.

I’ve decided to not to put out the audiobook versions right away, but I will still have to come up with about $5,000 ($2,500 each) before my new novels can be published. The majority of that will go to editing (I’m hoping to go with David Gatewood again), and the remainder will cover production costs (book cover, files for print and ebook version, etc), plus a zillion other little details (listing fees, ISBN fees, etc).

I’ve already squirreled away $2k, so I’m looking to raise another $3k.

Hence the yard sale.

And the “Shop at Amazon” thing. If you click on that link—or any Amazon link on my site—my Amazon Affiliate tag will travel with you. I will earn a little commission on anything you add to your shopping cart after that. It doesn’t change the price or effect you in anyway, just sends a few pennies my way on anything you buy. Might not sound like much, but every penny counts!

Sadly, I don’t have much to offer. I mean, what kind of nut spends $50 on a copy of a book nobody has ever read, signed by some an author nobody has ever heard of?

But as I said above, the cost to publish one novel is $2,500. Since I’ve already tucked away $2,000. So all I need is another $500 and the first of my two books is covered. 

To do that, all I have to do is sell ten signed copies at $50 each.

I’m a firm believer that anything worth doing is worth doing right. For that reason, I make no promises. None whatsoever. 

I’m very sorry about that, but please understand that I consider myself a man of my word and I do not make promises lightly. There are simply too many moving parts for me to give you a firm date with any accuracy.

My personal goal is to get at least one new book out by the end of this summer or early fall (2018).

I am located in the US, within the state of Florida. If the “Ship To” address you specify is in Florida, then I am required to collect a 7% sales tax (6% for the state, 1% for the county). 

If you pay for anything on my website with a credit card or Paypal, your receipt will say MoBetter Productions Inc (MBI).

Not to worry, MBI is my company. I own it.

The primary function of MBI is to collect the income from my day job, that of freelance graphic/web production. In the event my writing ever takes off, I am set up so that any income will also flow through the business.

This sales pitch was inspired by Billy Idol:
