Off The Rim Book Publishing for Oscar Rivera

My name is Oscar Rivera, a self-employed photographer, writer and most importantly, a father.  The purpose of why I am seeking funds is to have an intrinsic production of a story I am inclined to share about growing up in the South Bronx during the seventies and eighties, a pivotal time in history with an up close and personal acuity which many can relate to during that time.  The book is entitled  "OFF The Rim", a photo journal book which includes a collaboration of short stories and experiences of that specific time. www.oscarsart.com 

During these uncertain times and political unrest and controversy, I would like to share this collaboration of stories I believe will inspire readers to contrast and compare yesterday's values and morals to the experiences we face today. The photos in this journal are unique, which are exclusively taken by me and are mine, and tell a story of their own.

The funds will allow me to put to print and distribute these books to then ultimately seek a publishing deal, or continue to self-print as I acquire an audience. Furthermore, my intention with any success of the printing and distribution of this book is to share a percentage of the book’s earnings to assist other self-publishers struggling to publish their own historic experiences. The publishing business is not by any means an easy business to get into as an unknown writer.  However, when there is a worthy and honest story to tell and I certainly believe the stories in my book, “OFF The Rim” must be told, my intention is to help others who have helped me document and tell my own accounts.

No words can express my gratitude in your assisting me with the potential success of my book "OFF The Rim.”  I am very optimistic these stories will relate to many others, and will certainly have a following. Please include your information so that I may send you a signed copy. Thank you, in advance, for your guidance and assistance in making this book a reality.
