ENGLISH AND CHINESE VERSION.

Hi!,you probably wondering why your reading this right now. And this is not a coincidence, you are here because you been guided with your angel. You are part of 1% percent of people that has a beautiful soul, who’s ready to help those people in need, like me.

My name is kyle, I’m currently base in hong kong and this is my short story why I need your help, about this life changing project that I’m about to venture.

I have this dream, and i’m here to make it happen with your support.

Like what Mr. Stan Lee once said, who created the famous super hero, spider man. “If you have an idea, that you genuinely think is good. Don’t let some idiot talk you out of it”.

And I will tell you right now!,I do have!. And its start with a book that I just wrote recently. It’s my second book, that I finished writing in just 2 months. And I’m excited to share it with you and to everyone else in here.

That’s why for the upcoming month of July,2023 to be exact. In Wanchai exhibition hall, is one of the biggest book fair held in Hong kong. And with your help,I can finally launched my first ever debut sci fi-fantasy novel book.

You might be a little surprise, to finds out that this man who always go to the gym at night, actually love writing. And yes I do.

This writing obsession of mine, was started on the month of January back in 2017. Since that day I learned a lot, from writing my first ever novel book project, that has a word count of about three hundred thousand. Yes, it was a big story. If I remember it right,I didn’t stop writing just to finish it’s entire story, for one and half year. Every single day, on my free time with a coffee on my side. Yet still self editing it until now, about 6 Years. Hopefully I can publish it too in near future.

Working on with something for a long time with no results, will start giving you uncertain feelings. One day, would you believe that this evil self doubt hits me. Poisoning my brain. You know that kind of feeling?, asking your self if this things gonna work?. Do I can earn money with it?. Can I pay all my bills with this?. What if no one likes it?. This negativity keep coming, feed me up until in my lowest point. For all the time and effort that I put,I felt like it’s just going to be waste. That moment I’m not sure if i continue it anymore.

I am very positive person, but that energy starts fading, writing on and off. Creativity had gone. And those days that pandemic strike, it’s like another sharp knife stab my back, that I need to deal with also, as this financial problem hits up.

But with the help of my family and friends, who never doubt on me. I finally build my courage to get back up again and continue. And this beautiful community who surrounded me with love and support. I want to say thank you for all of that.

To make this dream book come to reality, i will need your help for this specific expenses. As it will involves different people and local companies to make this book on it’s very best version of it.

From its professional editing, for the cover art, for its English to Chinese translations and other few more. I will just indicate at the lower part section for more details.

CHINESE VERSION


你好!你可能想知道點解你會閱讀這篇文章。這並不是巧合,你在這裡是因為你被你的天使所指引。你是 1% 裡面擁有美麗靈魂的其中一位,他們願意幫助那些有需要的人,我就係其中一個。

我的名字叫凱爾(Kyle),現在居住於香港,以下文章講述點解我需要你的幫助,以及關於我將會冒險進行這個項目去改變我現在的生活。

我這個夢想,希望有你的支持而實現。

李史丹先生創造了著名的超級英雄蜘蛛俠。 他曾經講過 “如果你有一個夢想,你認為是最好的,不要讓一些白痴說服你放棄 ”。

夢想!我有!我剛剛用了兩個月時間寫完一本書。係我人生第二本完成的作品。好高興可以與你和其他人一齊分享。

有你的幫助!我希望在2023年7月香港灣仔會展舉辦的書展節,係香港其中一

個最大的書展中,推出我的第一本奇幻小說。

你可能會覺得奇怪,一個每晚都去健身的男人,竟然會喜歡寫作!冇錯,我喜歡!

由2017 年 1 月開始我沉迷於寫作,我第一次寫小說,大約 50 萬字。一個很長故事。如果我沒記錯,因為要完成整個故事,我冇一日停止過寫作,每一日,當我有空閒時間,有杯咖啡陪伴就開始寫,整整一年半,直到現在仍然編輯中。希望不久將來有機會發佈。

長時間堅持做一件事但未知結果,你會開始有唔肯定的感覺。突然某一日,你會相信這種邪惡的自我懷疑感覺,它不斷毒害我的大腦,你知道這種感覺嗎?你會問自己寫書是否可行?可以賺錢嗎?可以足夠我的生活費嗎?冇人喜歡點算?當消極的情緒不斷湧現跌至低點。我開始懷疑我所投入的時間和精神只是浪費。我唔肯定是否應該繼續寫作。

但我係一個非常積極的人,雖然正能量開始逐漸減退,我仍然斷斷續續地寫作。但創造力消失了,加上病毒傳播日子的糾纏多時,就好似有一把鋒利的刀插入我背上。在這艱難的時期,我須要面對與解決財務的困難。

在家人和相信我的朋友幫助下。我鼓起勇氣重新站起來繼續向前走。多謝大家一直用愛支持我。感激你們所做的一切。

讓整個新書出版項目發揮最大的潛實力。當我能夠達到第一個目標金額。如果有足夠的錢,我便可以解鎖第二個項目了。這是星體卡組,每組有一百種不同類型的卡。

-第二個項目-

標題:限量版的星體卡組

目前情況[鎖定]

需要解鎖的金額 $130,000.00

問題 - 這是什麼卡?

回答- 這種紙卡類似你哋經常見到的啤牌,可以供玩樂或收藏。

問題 - 這張卡有什麼用?

回答 - 所有卡與這本書本身的故事有關。

問題 - 這些卡的設計是什麼?

回答 - 每張卡由香港藝術家特別設計。另類藝術設計由我專門負責。

問題 - 如何制定限量?

回答 - 每張卡右下角都有一個特定的編號。

如果你對我的第二個項目還有其他問題,請與我聯絡。我很高興回答。

最後但並非最不重要的一點。如果這次籌款活動超出我的預期。達到我夢寐以求的目標金額,我將推出這個項目的第三部份一,創建應用程式(iOS 和 Android 應用程式)

- 第三個項目 -

標題:”星體預知” 應用程式

目前情況[鎖定]

需要解鎖的金額 $ 不適用的

這個應用程式與第二個項目星體卡相似。以書中故事為基礎。我們可以用不同的角度去睇。我的意思是在我們不斷發展的新技術幫助下。可透過應用程式體驗 AR(擴增實境)。這帶來了引人入勝的角色、特效、配件、迷你遊戲和其他更多涉及書籍本身故事的內容。

這種技術並不新鮮,您可能已經從其他應用程式中看到或體驗過。例如臉書(Facebook)、即時電報(instagram)或色布拉(snapchat)。

大家都知道建置一個新的應用程式是相當昂貴。但係有你和其他人的幫助下,我相信我地可以做到。

這刻我感謝上帝讓你抽出時間閱讀這篇文章,請把我的小故事分享和轉傳給你的朋友和家人對我們達成目標會有很大的幫助。我先感謝你們。最後,我知道我們的上帝是唯一可以主裁所有事物,我把一切都交給他。再次感謝你,願我們全能的上帝保佑你和你的家人成為好的撒瑪利亞人。

同我一樣有夢想的人,我希望我的小故事能夠激勵你。我原諒自己過去的拖延,現在接受了現實。並準備重新開始。如果我能做到,你也可以!

我真的很高興能夠將這本書交到你的手中,並期待新書能得到大家的讚賞。

上帝保佑大家!謝謝!
