Redemption Has 4 Paws Book

$3,015 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 48 people in 28 months
I have written a book titled "Redemption Has 4 Paws".  This is my memoir about how all of the dogs in my life have helped me realize what my life's purpose is--making therapy visits with my dogs.

I have been offered a contract through Covenant Books to publish my book.  No traditional publisher (with advances and royalties) will take on an unknown author. Covenant Books is a cross between a self-publishing company and a traditional publisher.  They are requiring me to pay in advance to get my book published, they will distribute it and help promote and sell it and then will pay me royalties at 100% until my initial investment has been paid back.  

At this time in my life, I don't have the money to get my book published.  So I'm asking for your help in getting Redemption Has 4 Paws published.  Any little bit will help tremendously.  

As a way of giving back, once the book is published and I have recouped the amount paid to Covenant Books, I will donate $1,000 each to the four rescues who have helped me and allowed me to adopt dogs that have become my beloved therapy dogs:  Minnesota Wisconsin Collie Rescue, MN Sheltie Rescue, The Long Island Sheltie Rescue, and The Central Illinois Sheltie Rescue.   So in the long run, your donation to help get my book published will end up helping four rescues that I care greatly about and will also help to get more dogs adopted.

Thank you so much for reading this and for any help you can give me.  I'm looking so forward to getting "Redemption Has 4 Paws" out into the world so more people can learn about the wonderful things that deaf and rescue animals can achieve.  Thank you!

I can't believe it's Thanksgiving week already. This year has really flown by quickly. And I have so many things for which to be thankful. That includes all of you who have contributed to helping get my book published. I'm 3/4 of the way there and have only 4 payments left to make. Any help will be so appreciated. I hope everyone has a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving with family and friends.

Hi all. I've updated my GoFundMe page photo with the actual cover of the book. I'm so excited for the book to be available to everyone so the story of my therapy dogs can be told. I only have $1,315 to go to make my goal to getting the book out there! Please help in any way that you can. A huge thank you to all who have contributed so far also. I am so grateful for your faith in me and this book! You all rock!
