Borderline: A Book Series
Borderline: stepping over the invisible transformation between seasons.
The Borderline is a four book series (one for every season) and a collection of prose essays about memory, time, change, and wonder. The progression of time and seasons change us. The weather shifts, the light lessens, the colors transform. We move through their motions and remember places we’ve been. The Borderline is the reminder of progression, the vortex that can transform us. The Borderline is stepping across the old and the new.
Why I wrote Borderline...
I write because I’m curious about the world around me and writing helps me understand things a little better. For me, the scariest thing to discuss and decipher is the progression of time. Borderline gave me the space to be afraid of it, write feverishly about it, and while not understanding it completely - come to peace with it. I hope Borderline gives you what it has given me: a place to hold memories and fears, the capacity for wonder, and the understanding that time gives and takes, gives and takes. And the roundness of that time, is a gift.
Borderline is a 4-edition journey through what moves us. The idea came to me while exploring the wilderness, the earth that has held me so long -- enticing the idea that exploration and movement will always be our closest confidant. I mulled for a long time how best to describe what progression has meant to me and decided to separate it into four themes: memory, time, change, and wonder. I also wanted to give the book in small, loving doses (because these are deep things to discuss) so Borderline will be released in four volumes (Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter) throughout the year.
I hope you find the entire Borderline series close to your heart. It is all of mine. Order the entire series now for $50. Or, order each book separately for $15 each:
- Volume 1: Spring | Memory
- Volume 2: Summer | Time
- Volume 3: Fall | Change
- Volume 4: Winter | Wonder
How the books will work:
Pre-order the series here now and receive each edition throughout 2019 (May, July, October, December). Each volume will be released with their season throughout the year and $50 is a special price for the bundle.
The goal is to have the audience experience the book in tandem to the seasons and enjoy what Borderline gives you throughout the entire year.

Risks and challenges
So far, the book has been written, edited and ready for print. The challenge I, as an author, face - is getting the word out there and creating the physical book for your hands. It's expensive and it takes time. I so much appreciate your help in funding this project so the book can come to physical life. It's a vulnerable expedition but worth every step of the journey.
This book is being created by Wise Ink Creative Publishing in Minnesota, who believe in game-changers and passion projects. You can see their other projects here: http://www.wiseinkpub.com/.
The funds generated here will be used to cover the cost of creating the book itself (materials, editing, marketing consultation etc).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
