OUR CAUSE IS NOT JUST BECAUSE! THIS IS US....

 A first time author and five time father. I experience daily the uniqueness and similarity to millions of families across the globe. My goal is to share our most precious commodity of the human soul, hope. I was never much for school or education and never went past the 10th grade. Since in my mind there was no place for it in my future. I like countless other little boys and girls learn growing up in a surrounding that was saturated in hopelessness that would be my future too by design. No talent + no education = no hope. The math was simple, but also wrong! because I was fortunate to discover that each of us has a talent so each of us has a chance. That talent and chance came in the the form of a book I had to read in the 5th grade called the The Pearl written by John Steinback. The Pearl is the first book that I can recall reading that had no pictures. which was how I discovered my talent, my imagination. Through my imagination I could explore, learn, rise, laugh, and vision. Vision somewhere else, something else, and sometime else was the pre-cursor for hope because it meant that there was more than just the inner city blues that would play for me. Even though I had been swept under the rug I did not have to stay there and that taste of hope lit a fire that is the fire in the hearts and minds of my readers I wish to spark. I like writing for children in particular because often they do not have the tools to deal with some of the harsh challenges they are faced with growing up as you will see when reading my book that I aim to take scary and confusing situations and diffuse them with calm and humor for both parent and child. Although I am not an award winning author with a dozen books and mega publisher in my back pocket what I do have is the ability to overcome, to laugh, to vision, to love, to hope, and share! What I have is this community and if you have read thus far I have you and you have me because part if not all of my story resonates in you! so we are kindred and you are the hope in my story by default because my writings are the gunpowder but it is your backing that is the life spark. This is our book, and when we succeed in our goal we will seek to help others by donating books to libraries and schools all over. I think Jyn Erso in Star Wars said it best "rebellions are built on hope" lol, enjoy!

Risks and challenges

Our greatest challenge is the audience for publishing on this platform is not the same scale as say a tech related area that means our backers must really see , feel, believe and want to be a part of our movement to build a brand centered on the growth of the family as a unit since there are not as many publishing backers for our category . Our next challenge will be getting the price of printing and distribution of our books at a better price point so we can distribute our work over a wider area, but we believe we will have better leveraging power with the greater volume of prints we can purchase.
