About this project
Hi. I'm David Melia (Pro Free Hugger)
Hey I am David. I started giving away free hugs in 2007 when I first came into contact with a free hugger. This book shares some of my free hugging experiences, thoughts on free hugs and the free hugging lifestyle that I have just begun to experience in my free hugging career. I hope you pick up a copy and learn how the simple act of a hug has the potential to change the world and what my plans are for future projects!!
I am currently in the final editing stages of my book. I am going to try and have it done and published by May of 2013 if this campaign is successful.
Ten Reasons why you want to read my book.

Risks and challenges
- A big challenge for me is going to be getting permissions for using quotes that I have in the book. I am currently looking at a service to help me get permission for the quotes that I have and if I don't get permission I will have to rework parts of my manuscript which will just take a little more time.
- One of my biggest challenges is making sure I transmit all of the information about my free hugging experiences in a well thought manner that is understandable to someone that doesn't know me. I have a couple of editors to help me make sure the book is clear and gets what I want to say, said.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
