Book signing update.

Hi everyone.  For those who have just come across the page and don't know me my name is Caper Brown and I'm raising funds to get my book published. 

I assume you might be wondering what kind of book?  On April 19th, 1990 my younger bvrother and I were burned in a gasoline explosion.  Me-severely.  This is my story of what life was like for me those years just after my burns. 

Many people really have no clue the hardships a burn survivor faces every day.  The difficulty and pain doesn't end after Ia burn survivor leaves the hospital.  We face a lifetime of difficuties and lest we forget we are reminded every time we see our scars or look in a mirror.

I've procrastinated and taken too long to get my story out there and I need to get it published not just for me but so other's can read my story while they still can.  For example my  grandma won't be around forever as much as I hate to admit it.

The funds will be used to pay the publishing fees, and marketing fees, I need to get my book out there for everyone to see.

KEEP IN MIND at the moment I haven't decided on a publisher but it will cost between $3500 -$4500 depending which publisher I choose to go with.

I am offerring gifts to top donaters.  The top 10 donaters will recieve free hard copies and a sneak peak at the book title before anyone else.

The next 10 will recieve paperback copies of the book.  And I might add some goodies later on.

I thank everyone who can contribute no matter the amount every little bit helps.  Lord knows this kind of money is beyond my means so I'm truly appreciative of everyone's kindness and generosity. 

Help me share my story.

As of today April 6th, 2017 my press release is out. Now I will begin contacting local media, etc. and do book signings as I get them. I have to order some books, and promotional items, then I'll be doing my first book signing when everything is good and ready. I hope my book can go far. I really want to share my story with as many people as I can. But I need help reaching people. Share the link with friends and show them the press release link. And thank you for your help. http://www.prweb.com/releases/2017/04/prweb14210816.htm#!
