SUCCESS!

Well, what can I say. I am speechless. Three days ago I wouldn’t have imagined that I would be OVERFUNDED early! What?! How does this happen? I’ll tell you how…people like you. I woke up this morning here in India and saw a message from my sister congratulating me. You people have not only made my day and week but possibly my whole year!

I was going to publish this book come hell or high water whether I got the funding or not. It may not have been so pretty or professional but I decided I would do it. Even using up my savings I would have found a way because I believe. This campaign was less about the money and more about the support. All you people encouraged me throughout the years, but you know how some people say things but don’t mean it? Well, that’s not you guys. You have what I value most in this life: Integrity.

You are part of a success story about someone who has a dream, takes a risk and puts them self out there then gets rewarded in spades from their community. I admit, it takes guts to be so vulnerable but in the end, there is no other way. In order to achieve, you must humbly take the risk.

I learned that in order for others to believe in you/your cause, you have to show them the way. YOU must believe in you first! Seems obvious, right? Well it’s a lesson I won’t soon forget.

Well, I thank you all from the bottom of my toes for being such an integral part of my journey. You can’t know just how much this means to me. This has been coming for nearly a decade.

Now when people ask me what I do, I can tell them I am a writer. A real writer! You have all made an honest woman out of me. <3

Grateful for asking.
