About

Young, Drunk, and Chased

$3,212

21

My story Young, Drunk, and Chased is a memoir about my life as an alcoholic and what God did to change my life and take these cravings of alcohol away. My marriage was hurting, I was going to lose my daughter, and I was slowly killing myself until God came by and saved me. This story goes through all of those days as well as gives advice to parents and addicts. I also give analogies of addiction and different ways in which God uses the weakest moments we have to help others. I am self publishing because many publishers do not want a memoir at this time, and it gives me the freedom to reach the audience I want to reach. I am not concerned about making money from my book, but I am concerned about saving lives. If I can get this story out to just one struggling alcoholic or addict who is open to help, then I believe it could change their whole outlook on things. I also believe it could help lead people to Christ. Any help is greatly appreciated! If I can get $3,500 or more then I can get a bigger publishing package with greater marketing, but $2,500 will get my foot in the door.

Risks and challenges

The challenges for this project were going through everything I had to in order to be able to write this story. Plus, as I said, publishers at this moment do not want to publish a memoir even if it will help thousands and maybe save lives.
