Spirituality of Rust book release - Pre sale

Hi Everyone! I have finally completed my first book and I am so excited to bring it into the light. I started writing Spirituality of Rust in 2017 and over the next few years slowly made progress until I felt it was complete and ready to edit for publication. Most of you know me as a textile artist and dancer but not a writer. This project was definitely a shift in skill and mindset that I am happy to have undertaken.
Spirituality of Rust is an inspirational memoir that explores love, process, and earth magic. Weaving my experiences with rust and natural processes has given me a perspective that I just had to share. Inside you will read about the science and art of iron in combination with self-acceptance, community connections and lots of processes to motivate and inspire. You will also see color plates that support and enhance the words. By the end, I hope that you feel earthly connections and a love for rust.
I have spent money from my own pockets and with generous support from RACC to edit and prepare for this moment of publication.
Now I am asking for your help.

I am having a book launch in early June ( I will disclose details at a later date) at a local bookstore and in order to prepare for not only the launch but for sales to other stores and my online shop, I will need to purchase books upfront so I can have stock.
Your donation will be a presale for a copy of the book.
This will help me cover costs so If I make more than my goal I will be able to buy a higher quantity and get a better price.

Normally the book will sell for 22.95
I am asking for donations of any amount but if you donate at -
32.00 = signed copy of the book with shipping included
52.00 = signed copy of the book and hand-dyed bookmark, with shipping included.
Just to be clear the books will be ordered and ready to send out for the launch in June.
For any donation 82.00 or more, I will send you a second book if you wish.

I am so very grateful for any support you can give towards my goal!
