With the help of a wonderfully supportive community, which started with my intimate circle and stretched out to encompass caring people I have never seen or met, my team and I raised $3715 ($3440 visible on the website site) in 60 days exclusively through an indigogo.com fundraising campaign. The moneys raised are enough to fund the project’s immediate needs including: the 18 illustrations, ISBN#, copyright registration, bar code, layout, design, and the cost of a small initial print run.

Over the next few weeks, I will apply for grants and begin approaching organizations to cover the cost of marketing and distribution. Our goal is to raise an additional $2285 to meet our $6000 goal. Please DONATE by clicking on the button below to help move this project forward. Any help you are able to provide would be GREATLY appreciated. Just as with the Indiegogo campaign, I will offer the following mementos as tokens of my appreciation for your gift.

    I would love, love to purchase the book. I viewed the indiegogo site but did not see an option that would allow me to purchase a book. Thanks

      Dear Loretta,
      Thank you so much for your post. I look forward to sharing the book with you. The Indiegogo campaign allowed me to raise the funds needed to bring the book to press. Last Friday, I purchased the beautiful illustrations from artist Cosmo Whyte and am in the process of getting the book laid out an designed. “Preview” copies of the book in advance of their official debut date should be ready in early September. I will make sure to alert you as soon as they are ready.

      Again, thank you for your interest and your support.

      All the best,
      Renee

    Is there anyway to get a copy of that excerpt that Stephanie Robinson read on TJMS last week?

    Renee –
    I am organizing a breast cancer event that will be on September 30. I would be interested in talking with you about possibly being at the event with either copies of the book or the excerpt. The event will be at NC State University in Raleigh. Please contact me if you think you might be interested and we can discuss the event and details.
