About this project

With your help, I'm going to reach my goal of $7,750 to cover the costs of printing 255 hardback and paperback copies as well as producing the electronic formats (audiobook, ebook, and videobook) and special rewards for contributors.

"SERIOUSLY, [YOU'RE A] DARK DR. SEUSS"—A reader

Reeling from a devastating breakup, my imagination and heartache takes you from present to past and back to other worlds as an attempt to understand pain, loss, love, life, and the self. THE REMAINING TROUBLE AND OTHER BATTLES features a collection of 27 puzzling and Kafkaesque poems. I employ several techniques to convey emotion by using a stream-of-consciousness form. A lot of these poems were inspired by many things (pop culture, music, etc.), but also contemporary poets and authors, like Robert Hass, Louise Glück, Langston Hughes, John Hollander, Franz Kafka, Virginia Woolf, and others. Also, there are seamonsters.

THEY CALL ME CLEVER, BUT MY NAME IS TREAVOR

Howdy, I'm Treavor “Sounds Like Trevor" Wagoner. I have a BA in Creative Writing from the University of North Texas. I design human experiences for apps and websites, and with your help, I’m going to do that with books. I’m also a musician and explorer.

As a writer and editor, I’ve been featured as a contributor of poetry in the North Texas Review and as a correspondent for Pegasus News and the Waco Tribune-Herald.

As a designer, I’ve created 4-star apps and sites for NBC's TODAY Show, AT&T, and countless others.

As a musician, I’ve performed at Microsoft, Six Flags Over Texas, Texas Motor Speedway, and a few weddings.

As an explorer, I’ve visited all 50 states (and Washington, D.C.) of the United States of America, 3 continents, and 7 countries so far. I’ve lived in Dallas, Austin, Seattle; I frequent San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland, and Miami.

Having done all of these things, I have plenty of exciting stories to tell. The Remaining Trouble and Other Battles is really just the beginning of my journey as a writer.

Risks and challenges

The only issue that might arise is getting the items to you by September 2016. I'm creating all the items myself and will be prepared to hound the printers and suppliers to be on time with delivery. Otherwise, I'm confident and determined. If I have any issue with anything, I'll be sure to update you.

Thanks for your support and patience!
