Young Jimmy loves his family, especially Harvey his wise old black labrador dog who tells this story with witty humour.
Hello prospective Backers.
With the help of Amazon books I have the opportunity to publish my Book "Jimmy's Chance", However, I am not famous therefore I have to fund the editing as I am word blind, I can not do this without the help of a professional editor.
The book has taken almost five years to get to this final draft, ready for the final push to edit and publish.
My hope is that a young person who recognises themself in this uplifting story, gathers strength and focuses on the future with a real sense of "I can do".
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The challenges faced when trying to publish a book are a continual headache
With this project I am certain all obsticles have been overcome from securing an ISDN number to a marketing strategy and publisher. It really is a case of editing costs are too high for me to take on, on my own.
