I don't know how to do this and really not comfortable asking for help, but I can't do this financially on my own. I'm asking for help for my book, "Behind the dark walls". I am able to purchase the first 100 copies of my book but beyond that I can't do it right now. I hope you can help even if it's just a dollar or two.

I wrote this book in hopes to help people in need, people with struggles. To give you an idea of who I wrote this book for, here is what is said inside my book...

"This is for the young man who struggles with his emotions inside. This is for the college student who needs to stay focused on her future. This is for the therapist who needs to reach out to those in need. This is for the young man who needs to make positive changes. This is for the child who is terrified of her father's behavior. This is for the mother who left her children. This is for the teacher who teaches Health and Language Arts. This is for a parent who constantly worries about her daughter. This is for the grandparent who worries about his grandchildren. This is for the sister that never gives up on her brother. This is for the homeless man on C Street. This is for a case manager in a rehabilitation center. This is for the high school student who needs prevention. This is for the woman who was beat and doesn't know where to turn to. This is for all those in need to be reached out and touched."

In just a few more days my book will be in the hands of many people; both familiar and strange faces, but it doesn't stop me from distributing/marketing my book. I have hopes that my book will help many people of many races, not just our Native people. I wrote this book not for myself. I didn't write it for attention, or to make a quick buck, or to get celebrity status. None of that is important to me. The important thing is that I make a difference in someone's life. That is the whole intention of my writing. Just trying to make a difference. If you'd like to help, you can click on this page and donate. If not that's okay too. You can help by sharing this page.
