At the Start of My Decade

About The Campaign

This Kickstarter Campaign is for raising enough funds to print 500 copies of "My Decade" with a professional book manufacturer.  If the goal is not met, we receive no funds and the books won't be printed in time for the very special March release.

About The Book

What do you want to be remembered for?

At the Start of My Decade is a collection of poems written in 2010, capturing that first year I aspired to be a writer. With dynamic designs by Chhorvy Ly – and featuring poems inspired by my life, Janelle Monae, Jean Grae, Kings of Leon, Tennille, Terius Nash, models on Lookbook.nu and more – it’s literary, a visual and emotional experience that anyone with a dream can relate to.

This first edition will be limited to 495 copies for sale – all professionally printed by a book manufacturer* and personally signed with a thank you. Other perks include a handwritten copy, and a personal reading session in which I’ll explain some of the book’s secrets.

This is My Decade. It’s about Our Dreams to be the best. 

This is written by Me…But it’s about Us.

Will you be a part of it?

    Hey there, big spender. I hope you’re ready to also hear my virtuous voice read My Decade to you in all of its glory and explain some of its secrets - because that’s what you just earned. I’m good for transportation if a NYC Metro Card can get me there. Otherwise, it’s on you.
