About

Paradise is the story of "Jeffery" who loses what seems like their entire world and their struggle to find themselves. This story is told through both original poetry and original photography.

The first part of the story documents a feeling of loss and confusion - something I've found to be extremely relatable amongst people my age at some point in their lives, no matter how drastic.

Near the end of the first chapter and beginning of the second, Jeffery is still struggling but is starting to see glimmers of himself again and starts to smile again.

By the end of the story, Jeffery's life is still far from perfect, but he learns how to live a happy life amongst the struggles that he will have to continue to fight through. In what seemed to be his final demise, he is able to find a paradise through both loving himself and others around him.

Paradise is fully written and a few images have been taken, however there is still plenty of work to do. Any funds collected from KickStarter Backers will go towards the costs of publishing, editors, and travel expenses for photography trips/adventures. My goal is to send the manuscript to the printers by the beginning of September.

A small collection of my poems can be found here at https://poets.media/authors/jay-reb or my Instagram @jayreb.poetry

Thank you for taking the time to look through my project and I hope to get a copy of Paradise into your hands soon :)

Risks and challenges

My goal is to have my story published with a certain group of publishers, which may end up pushing the release date depending on their terms and production schedule. However, everything on my end will be completed by the first week of July if funding is received in time!
