I fear, deeply, for the future of books. Not only books; but captivating reading material in general and there ability to manifest fantastic worlds and dangerous adventures with oddball characters with even weirder pasts and motivations. Yes, our books have gone digital and at first I hated the idea, but reading is reading and the act itself still stimulates the mind. I am still in love with ink and paper, the smell of a new book blends well with the whiff of a strong cup of coffee and sound of a gentle summer rain as it tap...tap...taps on the window.
I am making it my life's mission to keep books alive, and I plan on doing so by writing some of the best reading material. Unfortunately, to do I require funding as the only way I am able to self publish; is to pay an institute to put my hard work into hard cover and then into bookshops and libraries. I can not muster the funds myself, although I am trying, but as this is quite an expensive endeavor (to get my work printer and published) I require the assistance of book lovers everywhere to stand with me and help my bring my work to fruition.
