Sharing is caring, and when it comes to books, and getting stories out there if all for that. Perhaps this will interest the intrepid reader. YA is a genre that is really popular these days so for all those with a feeling of curiosity, check out the post and link here and discover a new story waiting for its platform to be told on.


For many, many people, the GoFundMe campaign site is familiar only as a site which helps collect funds for scholars, people who need operations, children who are suffering from some disease which is costly to treat, or homeless people who need shelter.  Some of the requests are even done in memoriam of some person or group of people, to help their survivors out in a time of grief and need.  All of these more than worthy causes deserve your attention and a contribution, however small it might be.  But it can also be uplifting to donate to the beginning of a creative enterprise which will bring interest, encouragement, and joy to the minds of young adults who encounter it, and to this end I am asking for your donation, however small, to the campaign organized by a friend of mine, John Rattenbury, for the novel now operating under the working…

Though I can’t discuss publication arrangements and in fact don’t know much about them at this point, I can tell you that I believe this book will reach a readership on both sides of the pond, so it shouldn’t be hard to get, once published. If the title should change, I’ll be in touch to let you and your readers know. Thanks again!
