Hello, everybody! My name is Aleese Hughes, and I am an indie author of a Young Adult Fantasy Series! But let's go back a little bit... My entire life, I have struggled with anxiety and depression, and boy, it has been a tough battle! After a lot of trial and error, learning who I am, and LOTS of prayers, I have discovered what my true calling is: to be a mother. Not just to my own daughter and other future children, but to be a nurturing influence for EVERYBODY! I want to inspire the world with my talents and lifestyle and help those who struggle with mental illnesses to know they are not alone in the fight. Yes, I am a stay-at-home mom (which is a divine, wonderful job), and I am also following my dreams by publishing some novels! Writing has always been a huge passion of mine, and I also write my books in ways that I would feel comfortable letting my own kids read someday. The first two out of five in the series I'm working on are out, but I need your help! Why? I will use the money from this Kickstarter to fund my book development. For example, hiring artists, getting better equipment for writing, and even hiring some experienced editors. I want to write a BUNCH of high-quality books for my current and future readers! I appreciate all the help I can get and will also give some pretty great rewards to those donating! Thanks for your support.  

Risks and challenges

Becoming an author (especially a self-published one) has a LOT of risks involved! I may never sell as many books I want to, people may not like what I write... so many things! Creating a Kickstarter is risky, as well. Sometimes it's hard to put yourself out there, especially if your goal isn't met. The failure could be out there for the whole world to see! But I am willing to take these risks, and I am ready to hand out some great rewards!
