Publishing Nonfiction for Teachers

Hello everyone and thank you for visiting this campaign!
My name is Charles Fischer and I am raising money to get my book published. I have been working on this massive project for over 10 years. This 350+ page tome represents my life’s work to date in a specific area of teaching called Socratic Seminar. 
This teaching method is specifically designed to help students develop their thinking skills. I entered the book in a publishing contest judged by librarians and won second place. The librarians recognized the need for such a book to add to the professional books in this specific genre. What could be better than helping students think for themselves?
I am raising this money to get the book published and distributed into the world. I have the resources I need to see this through. I am familiar with the self-publishing industry because I published a novel a few years ago. I have a book coach helping with the process, and I belong to AuthorU, an organization in Denver that has professional editors, talented cover designers and amazing artists who are all dedicated to publishing.
I have already purchased ISBNs and several other side expenses. The money raised will pay for editing, designing a cover, interior layout, and printing costs. There are other costs as well, such as shipping, warehousing, and marketing that I will be paying for eventually as well.
This is my flagship book, meaning that it will be the main book of a planned series. I have outlines for two other books that go into more detail, another book specifically on listening skills and several other ideas that may manifest. With any stretch goals, I would also begin the publishing process with the others in the series.
This book is my legacy to teaching and learning. Please help make it happen!
Thank you for any support!

$75 - I'll mail you a copy of the book!
