I am raising funds for:

$500.00 Cover Design
$500.00 Interior Layout
$1,000.00 Copy Editing
$600.00 First Printing
$500.00 Marketing: ISBN, Copyright, Barcode, etc.
$360.00 Misc

TOTAL Cost is: $3,460.00

The first draft is already completed and is 42,300 words. After final editing and revisions, I expect to finish at 43,500. That will make the finished product about 220 pages.

There are times in our lives when we recognize that we need to re-group to move ahead, when we need to embark on a journey. Maybe we find ourselves in bondage on some level; or maybe we feel called to step out of our familiar existence and to move into uncharted waters; or maybe we are simply moving into a new facet of life.

The question is this: How do we prepare for the journey so that we make it to the destination? The answer lies in knowing how to travel, what to expect, and what to do once you get there.

Tentative Chapter Titles:

  • Contemplating the Journey
  • Getting Ready to Go
  • The Attitudes that Build Our Heart
  • The Attitudes that Guide our Heart
  • Develop Your Plan
  • The Hardest Part is Leaving
  • Focusing on the Journey
  • I Can See the Promised Land

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge is raising the funds to be able to publish the book. A copy Editor is very important. Right now the raw manuscript stands at over 42,300 words in six chapters. I have a team of beta-readers and will add a few more soon. I am currently on my first edit of the raw manuscript based largely on responses from my beta-readers. Once the project is funded I will submit the first edit to my copy editor.
