For the past three years, I've been writing and editing my first book, Passionate Soccer Love. This Kickstarter is to fund the final printing expenses and the book tour to promote the book. Here's what people are saying about my book:
“Tanya Keith has been traveling to U.S. soccer games since 1993, including seven World Cups, and her highly readable book is a revealing (and fun) window into the adventurous life of a hardcore U.S. fan and her family. The growth of U.S. supporter culture is one of the great stories in American sports, and Keith has been there to see it all. I couldn’t put this book down.” -Grant Wahl, Sports Illustrated, Fox Sports
"Passionate Soccer Love: A Memoir of 20 Years Supporting US Soccer chronicles the travels of Tanya Keith through seven World Cups and beyond. Her stories are funny, entertaining, and will enthrall readers with her perseverance, passion, and dreams. Experience the history and camaraderie of American Soccer supporter culture as you get to know her soccer family. Through tales of soccer adventure, Ms. Keith shows how her contagious passion has paved the way for her dreams to become reality and how following your passion can bring balance between love and life, business and family." -Renee Murphy
This campaign will fund my self publishing expenses, help create the website to promote the book, and will serve as the initial funding to spread the word about my book events around the US this summer.
Risks and challenges
There are very few challenges to printing the book. The editing and design are finished, I just need to get it through production. The challenges of doing my book tour will be in the scheduling and completing the tour after the many thrills and hopefully few chills of the World Cup this summer, but I'm excited to meet soccer fans and share my book!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
