THE PROJECT

'On My Way Home' is my first self publishing novel project. This 'GoFundMe' campagne is used for all the needed funds for publishing, distributing and promoting the book. As I am travelling the world as a Karma Yogi, your support is crucial in making this dream come true.


THE STORY

In a time of global awakening a young girl, Marina, and a mysterious man called Tiger, meet by coincidence far away from home. Both on their way to a new haven they try to make ends meet and look for the best that life has to offer. Soon, as in most affairs, their expectations clash and they break up. As Marina leaves Tiger, she is inspired to collect his notes and is determined to write down his story as he would have told it.

The story of Tiger and his encounters is a turbulent tale of a sensitive man trying to understand the world, taking part in every aspect of it and looking to push it to a better state of being. He is being chased by a strange series of coincidences that challenge him to purify his mind to its full potential.

In the setting of some of the most beautiful places of the planet, our world is being dissected and its true nature revealed. The reader gets the choice: read the book as Tigers roller-coaster ride into awareness or as Marinas testimony of being tested on unconditional love.

'On my way home' is a story travelling around the world by the voice of people out there, their deepest insights and contradicting opinions. As the search for values and finding balance are key issues for our generation, reading 'On my way home' is a poetic plunge into self exploration.


THE WRITER

Christoffel Hendrickx was born and raised in  the north of  Belgium. He studied English, literature and theatre at the University of Antwerp and received recognition as a poet, dj and art director. He broadened his practice of musical collaboration and theatre projects 
to the public space by aligning with activism, centered around sustainability,  civil disobedience and social values. Struggling with addiction and alienation he emigrated to New Zealand where he started a path of natural living, meditation and yoga. This first novel expresses views on the global shift and shares his deepest travel experiences. His spiritual transformation is fictionalised for literary purposes in 'On my way home'.

After all the ups and downs of 2018 including cancer, lots of moving house and failed relationships, I am finally back to working on On my way home. May there be no more set-backs and writer blocks and then hopefully I will finish this sooner rather than later. I am sorry to keep you fans and readers waiting, life has been making me drink lots of lemonade. I'll be chopping lemons now all summer in Belgium hoping to use this time to finish the project. To give a final boost to the project you are still able to pre-order the book through the crowdfunding channel with a 50$ donation.

Hi supporters and future readers,

This is my final call for support!

If you still wanted to help me or pre-order the book, NOW is the time to do it. I will finish the first draft by the end of the year and the book will be published hopefully by my birthday in March 2018.

I will close my Australian account and then can't receive anymore donations. Once the book is officially in circulation those who did not donate 50$ (30 euros) will have a chance of buying the book online in the first stage and in stores world wide in a later stage.

I only need another 1500 dollar to have all expenses for pre production, production and post production covered. This includes printing, distribution, copies for the large donators, a promotional website, press contacts, online sales processing, ...

That which I didn't receive in donations I will put in myself. After production I will receive 25% of all royalties so hopefully this can slowly start my career as a published writer.

Eternal gratitude for all your patience and support,

Kind Regards,

Atmapriya (Christoffel Hendrickx)

Dear future readers!

My book is getting close to being done (written over 200 pages so far). Proofreaders are looking at the first manuscript and I am in the final editing phase.

To make the independent book production for 'On my way home' financially viable I still need to gather 1585$ (1000euro's) To clarify what this money will do:

Author Volume Discounts / ISBN Assignment / Online Worldwide Distribution / Cover Design / Personalized Back Cover/Interior Book Design and Page Layout/ Image Insertion/Text Treatments -10/ Free BookStubs – 15* / Free Paperback Copies – 50*/ Free Hardcover Copies – 10*/ E-book Formatting and Distribution/ Complimentary Author Copy/ Sold on Amazon.com, Barnes&Noble.com, etc./ Personalized Balboa Press/ Bookstore Detail Page/ Included in Balboa Press Catalog/ Barnes & Noble “Read Instantly”/ Amazon “Look Inside” and Google Preview/ U.S. Copyright Registration/ Library of Congress Control Number/ Promotional Materials – 300/ Booksellers Return/ Program – 1 year/ Author Website Setup – Premier/ Book Buyers Preview/ Social Media Setup Guide/ Editorial Assessment/ Press Release - Web-Optimized Edition/ Book Signing Kit/ Index Service (up to 1,000 words)/ Cover Copy Polish/ Premium Book Video

All this beautiful work will help me to start a profession as a writer, which has been my dream my whole life. Suddenly 1585$ doesn't seem that much anymore...right?

In return you get my sincere gratitude and every donator of 50$ or more gets a free hard copy of the book send to them.

I will share more details about the book release as soon as the whole pre-production is finished.

Eternal gratitude,

Christoffel Hendrickx

Love is what we are; we don't get it from somebody, we can't give it to anybody, we can't fall in it or fall out of it. Love is our true Being. — Krishna Das Because I believe in the power of unexpected encounters, and I believe that difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations! But remember… Unfinished situations will return one day to be picked-up again To complete the circle And to continue More Freely So keep on spreading love, light, warmth, and peace in everything you do Atmapriya! Wishing you a happy journey… on your way home! _/_
