What is my book about it?

My book is about 12 issues in America. I wrote the book in two voices; one is a comical character and the other is a more rational, nonbiased character. It is both entertaining and informative. I give explanations and solutions, but leave the decision making up to the readers.


What is the purpose?

My goal in writing this book is to inform people about issues important to all Americans. I consider various topics like the size of America’s military, tax policy and health care system. Then I use simple down to earth language to work through causes, how issues interconnect and possible solutions to make things better.


Why did I write the book?

I wrote this book because too many people in America simply do not care about the world around them. It is easy to tune out when politicians attack each other instead of talking about solutions, but this is our country and we need to be a part of it.

My hope is after reading my book; people will talk about what they read with their friends, family and society as a whole to spur new discussions about America.


What will I do with the money?

I finished the hardest part, writing the first draft. I also paid the most expensive cost by hiring an editor. However, I still need to have the book professionally formatted, pay for a cover design and register an ISBN number for the copyright.


Why do I need the money?

Have you ever read a book with a powerful message and terrible production? Even though the book is engaging people can not look past the typos, poor formatting or terrible pictures. I want people to focus on my message, and be satisfied with the production quality when ordering the book.

I'm asking for the minimum to finish my project. Anything over and above $500 will help me reach more people, so donate today and get a copy of the book before anyone else.
