I am Chimezie Kingsley Irobiko, a former teacher in China and now freelance writer working from my home in Nigeria. I own a news blog (www.meziesblog) where I share information online.
Recently, I recently completed my first novel "Angels with Broken Wings," which is still unpublished for lack of funds even though it has been accepted by Macauley Publishers, UK. The book is set in China, and it highlights the directional role of teachers and parents in matters relating to relationships and sex.
Having spent over 8 years working as a teacher in the Asian country, I found that sex education is considered a "debased subject" to be included in school curricula notwithstanding the negative consequences on young adults. I also feel there's need to support the LGBTQ community and integrate them into the society without prejudice, considering that one's sexual orientation is an act of nature - no matter how "repulsive" or strange they appear to us.
In summary, the novel clamors for a change of attitude from governments, school, religious institutions, parents and the general public. "Love Knows No Gender" is the theme of this highly educative novel.
I have received a contract agreement from the London-based publisher but with a request that I pay a total of £4,500 as my share of the publishing cost, considering that I am a first-timer in the literary world. However, a sequel to the novel is about 90 percent-complete.
In appreciation for this help from GoGetFunding Users, I'll engage in academic lectures aimed at sensitizing young people and parents on the importance of sex education, dangers of premarital sex and the need to accommodate one another's differences.
*3-time installment payment is allowed but the total amount is expected to be completed by 30 September 2018.
I'm so grateful for the help. God bless you all.
