Help Make My 1st Book a Reality!

$2,557 of $12,000 goal

Raised by 48 people in 24 months
IMPORTANT UPDATE: I am offering a free signed copy of my book before it's out to those who can make a donation of $50 or more! :)

OVERVIEW:
I have created this gofundme account to provide an easy way for friends and family to partner with me on the creation of my first book. Your financial gift will help make my story available to those who need to hear it. Yes, it starts with a donation, but I guarantee it will end with lives being changed.

I already have the co-writer, editor, and printer lined up.

Here’s what your gift will go towards:
- Professional co-writer’s fee
- Professional editor’s fee
- Publishing fee
- Print set-up and production fees

TIMELINE:
The goal is to have the total amount ready to go by Jan. 1 2017 so we can get started first thing next year.

PURPOSE:
Many of you have seen my journey out of the sex industry. Although it’s had it’s ups and downs, grace has led me down a road that has totally transformed me. This book will be written for those who need to know that they are loved. It will be for those are beat up on the inside - so much that they’ve lost hope. It’s for those who are wandering without direction, wondering if they even have a reason for living. It’s for those seeking their true purpose. For those who are trying to get freed from the trap they’ve found themselves in.

This will also be good for mothers and fathers who might not realize just how much power their words have on their sons and daughters.

BACK STORY:
It was a scary decision to leave the sex industry, but it only took one moment, to realize my worth and that changed my life. I gave up everything that, at that point in my life, made me who I was. I then had to figure out who I was without the fake tan, hair extensions, clothes, and fan adoration. I went from having everything to seemingly having nothing. But I did have a hope inside me that kept me strong. The easy thing would have been to go back to the industry but I did the hard thing by leaving and rebuilding my life.

Many of you have followed my story on social media since 2006. I felt like a child as I discovered so many new things about myself. I blogged about my journey and shared obstacles as they came. You all have seen my life change and me grow.

Many of you have helped me tremendously by your friendship. Some of you have poured your wisdom in to me. Some of you were there when my heart was broken, and some of you have showed me God's love by your kindness and generosity. Oh... and one of the greatest things was the books you sent me! I have 75 books sent to me from all over the world in the last 10 years! They have helped me so much with my faith and healing! I thank all of you!

Over these last 10 years I have been asked countless times if I was going to write a book and I usually said probably not. I have been inspired to write blogs and articles before and I knew if God was going to have me write a book He would give me the words. No matter how many times I tried to sit down and write nothing ever came (until now). So I didn't try to force it. Instead, I've been sharing parts of my story at churches, universities, on tv, in articles and documentaries...any avenue God sent my way.

I use my story to help women with similar backgrounds by hosting support groups and mentoring women. It's been an honor for God to use what was meant to destroy me for His glory.

Thank you!
Help spread the word!

Hey guys! I know it's been a really long time since I began this campaign and I haven't posted an update yet. I'm so sorry! I've had a lot going on at my jobs and things are slowing down right now.

I am still in the beginning stages of my book. I have written an outline out, identified who my audience will be and the overall theme. I've been talking with a literary agent who is helping me through this entire process and the next step will be to write a book proposal which we will present to different publishing companies. From what I understand the publisher will pay an advance which we will put towards the writing of the book.

I will let you all know how that process goes. Anyway, if you have given towards this project I just want to thank you again! If you've pledged to help but can't at this time I will keep this gofundme active so that you can. If you donate $50 or more you will get a signed copy before the book is out. Thank you all and God Bless!

Hi friends!

We are $300 away from the first $1,000! Thank you guys for all of your support! It's definitely more challenging to raise money since I am not in the sex industry anymore so I need to ask you guys to please help share my campaign with your friends! :)

I have received so many emails from people all over the world who have shared with me how my story has impacted them. This would be a great thing to share with your friends :) Also, let them know that a donation of $50 or more will get them a signed copy of my book before it's officially released! :)
