Wonderful news! Thanks to you, to all my friends and family and fans out there who supported this campaign, the book "Masa: Stories of a Lone Soldier" is officially funded! In just 10 days, we raised $3,000 dollars. I want to stop for a moment and thank you from the bottom of my heart. None of this could have been possible without you. I am grateful beyond words.

Now, we have 18 days left to raise money. Remember, $3000 dollars is not the limit. It is a great start. Please send the link to your friends and family! For $25, you can pre-order an autographed copy of the book today! Let's raise another thousand, two thousand, so that we may publish more books. Again, I thank you and look forward to sending each of you a copy of the book. 

Look for your names in the acknowledgments!
