About

Awakenings Excerpt

I started this novel with a simple premise, “How would it change your life if you had an extraordinary ability? How would you test your new ability? Are you the only one or are there others?”

What would you do if one day, by sheer force of will, you blew a hole in your living room wall that was large enough to walk through? That single act starts Josh on a journey of discovery that leads him to find the love of his life or more aptly, the love of his life to find him, the opportunity to take down a major criminal organization, if he can stay alive long enough to find them, and a healthy dose of self reflection because when you're a hammer, everything looks like a nail. In the end his ability not only forever changes his life, but the lives of everyone he touches. 

I need your help to turn my draft into a professional, published novel. I need the funding to cover publishing costs, hiring an editor, and an artist for the cover design.

This novel will be available on in digital format and in a limited edition trade paperback.

Risks and challenges

The risk is minimal. A draft of the book is written and has been personally revised several times. I am currently working with an editor to produce a professional product.

The purpose of the project is to help fund the editing and publishing costs and once those are accomplished the book will be published.
