Hello my name is Roxanne and I am a 23 year old (wannabe) author, I have always wanted to be a writer and have finally found my chance. I cannot go the usual route of working my way up in the industry as I am wheelchair bound (I'd love to even be a coffee girl in a related industry but willing as I am people don't like cold coffee after waiting for the elevator to get back up to them!). I have entered many competitions and been published 14 times in collections but I want to have my own book and to feel like a normal member of society (including making my own income and paying my taxes) and for that I need your help. I need the money to get some proffesional reviews and run some local charity events (sponsored by me as an author) to raise awarness for my work while giving back to society. Advertising is my main issue, I really appreciate each penny because it is another step towards a future (out of institutions) and to follow my dream. The reviews are about £500 each and although selling on Amazon is my main aim there is something satisfying about holding a book, a few printed editions would also let me sell in local shops and keep up tradition Thank you so much and please do not worry if you can't afford to give, sharing the word is helpful enough.
