My dream of being a bestselling author is just a paperback away.

Books are essential to our everyday life.

For bookworms, it is important to hold a physical book in their hands instead of reading it on an electronic device. I know, as a book reviewer I oblige authors and read in the various formats available on my laptop. It is easier and quicker, but it is not the same. A book is authentic. It fits perfectly into your life; you can sit anywhere and enjoy the feel and smell of it while turning the page.
Since 2012, when my first book, A Pirate’s Wife was published I had this dream to hold my own book in my hands, but it never realized. No matter how much I tried to find a permanent position or tried to save it stayed a dream.

Then, in August of this year (2019) I had the opportunity to distribute my books through a well-known distributor in my country, South Africa. And they not only opened the doors for me but to every client, I brought in. I was excited and apprehensive at the same time when I plunged ahead. In faith, I signed the contract and proclaimed this my year to see it happen.
Since then I could print a few books of each but like with everything else you need to sell quantities to really make money from it. Since this is my only source of income, I am moving ahead to get the ball rolling. My clients are already in the network while I sit on the sidelines wishing, I could print my books. This is where my quest for fundraising comes in.

I started with the fundraising in October 2019 but since it didnt reach the required amount, I decided to extend it without a deadline until the target has been reached, including my new book's distribution costs as well.

This is a learning curve for me. To get out of your box and think differently is a whole new experience, especially when you don't like to talk about yourself. But circumstances forced me to do this, even if I don't like it. I definitely learn to be more open and out there, marketing myself. A big step in an even bigger world when there is so much competition.
