About this project

My project consists of the creation of a book, start to finish. I will be writing and typesetting it as well as designing, creating artwork for the project and marketing it. 

Funding from this project will go first to materials needed to complete the book. Topping the list is a new laptop because my current machine is unreliable. This has slowed my progress to this point. With a new laptop, my goal is to publish the book on my birthday this summer: August 1. 

The remaining funds will go to marketing. I plan to self-publish. This requires that I buy copies of the completed book to give as rewards to my benefactors, and also to get an affordable price point.

Although this story is personal to me and my family, the stories in this memoir will resonate with many people. Touching on family love and disappointment as it does, as well as dealing with Alzheimer's and Asperger's, the book deserves to be read. The issues it faces are important and timely. By the way, the subtitle, Documented in Time, is intended to suggest two elements of memoir: the urgency to relate the story and the fluid nature of time.
