Today I am doing something extraordinary.
I am asking for help to finance my dream; and that is to be a recognized author. To do so I need financial backing from family, friends and people who want to share my dream or simply believes in reaching out.
This is not easy for me - it almost feels like begging, but I know there is no other way to accomplish this.
My dream started when I was young. Reading books, exploring the world through its pages I discovered exciting things and beautiful places. Reading has equipped me to accomplish more, to reach for the unthinkable and be daring. That is the same characteristics I portray in my book characters. Think outside the box, be free to explore, overcome your fears and take the leap of love. We all need love and romance in our lives, correct.
Books are in many ways the backbone of our nature and society. Through the ink we leave footprints behind in a book: a legacy for those with the same tenacity to dream and learn. It empowers us to get out of our comfort zone and be the person we were meant to be.
Over the last couple of years - since 2010, I have authored several books (15) and 4 is self-published and available in Kindle. It was only in 2018 that I could hold my very own printed book in my hand. A feeling which still surpasses anything else.
I can go national and signed a distribution contract with a reputable company in South Africa to do so. But the printing cost is on me. The reason for this fundraising event.
My official Biography talks about a person so different than me above this line, but I have added it for your perusal.
