The Becoming Continues ... A Book That Leads You Back to You
A tale that explores resisting and ultimately surrendering to who you truly are, so that you can live the life you are here to live.
In 2016, with the help and support of many people (maybe even you!), I successfully funded my first Kickstarter to bring my first book into the world—Becoming Enough: A Heroine’s Journey to the Already Perfect Self. It has already touched the lives of hundreds of people in a very meaningful way.
And as it says at the end of that book, “This becoming is the beginning, not the end.”
Many of us long to feel satisfied, to feel empowered, to do something that matters. We spend years and years searching for the answer. At the same time, we spend years and years running away from, fighting against, or trying to control the very thing that contains the answer: who we truly are.
That is why this next book in the Becoming series is yearning to come through me and into the world.
For the past four years, I’ve been committed to revealing and expressing more of who I truly am and, from this place, writing and creating content to inspire others to do the same. That’s equated to 1 book, more than 75 articles, over 8 hours’ worth of video content, and nearly 50 hours’ worth of podcasts.
I believe we are each here to create and give of our gifts in only the way we can. And when we forget who we truly are, we are unable to do this. It has become crystal clear to me that my gift is to inspire as many people as possible to reveal and express more of who they truly are, which is why this project is so important.
Having one book under my belt, I know what it takes to bring a book into the world and the investment it requires, and I am committed to doing it, but I can’t do it alone.
With your support, I am ready and able to complete this second book and reach for the stars, having an even greater impact in the world!
In order for this book to have the sort of reach and impact it deserves, I have the opportunity to hire an incredible publicist, John Masiulionis from Empowered Publicity, who is ready to support me with creating a book tour starting with a launch in Buffalo, NY this September and further speaking opportunities throughout the United States.
In addition to hiring the support to publicize and promote me and the book, the money raised through this project will make it possible for me to hire additional support to bring a book into the world and have the book designed and edited, the imprint logo created, all rewards to be fulfilled, and the book published and ready for distribution in both paperback and Kindle—for you and thousands of others to read and enjoy! All this will quickly add up to about $15,000.
This book is already nearly a year into the making. I have a detailed concept and outline, and am currently in the real “work” phase of the creation process—the writing phase, with more than 20,000 words currently drafted, and showing up to my computer daily to bring this book to life.
After having the experience of writing a book in six months’ time—and remembering the importance of having a deadline to move towards—my intention is to have the book written and published by September 24 of this year, which means I am at the point where the financial support is a necessary next step.
Given this is an all-or-nothing campaign, every dollar matters. Even $11 will make a huge impact. I operate from an abundance consciousness and know that I am already supported and all that I need is already there for me. I simply need to tap into it and live from that knowing. The same is true for all of us.
As I like to say, “we don’t manifest what we want, we manifest who we are” and, after many years of devotion and exploration, I have started to remember who I am—and I desire more than anything else for others to have this experience.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting this project and doing your part to make a difference in our world.

Risks and challenges
After having one book under my belt and out in the world, I sense that the main challenge is ensuring I launch this book appropriately and have the publicity and promotional support to go with it, which is why this time around I am raising enough money to afford a publicist to arrange book tours and speaking opportunities.
If I don’t reach my goal, I will not receive any amount of what is pledged, and I risk not reaching and inspiring others to be more of who they truly are.
It is through your contribution and support that I will reach my goal and, in partnership with you, ensure this book has the reach and impact it deserves.
With your support, I plan to face this challenge by working with my publicist to promote and market my book with a book launch tour starting in Buffalo, NY. Equally, I plan to partner with you, my supporters, to help me spread the word and get more copies sold once the book is published. A book can only serve and inspire others if it is made known and read.
