Free at Last!

I am semi-retired from Wellspring Retreat and Resource Center. I still volunteer from time to time as need, leading workshops to help survivors of cults, abusive relationships, and abusive churches understand what happened to them: why they were vulnerable, how they were entrapped, and why they may still feel loyal to their abusser(s). For those who want to know what the Bible really teaches/means I suggest an indepth study of the book of Galatians. Wellspring's founder and first director, Dr. Paul R. Martin, suggested I write a commentary on this book, so I finally did! Now I need to get it published, but every traditional Christian publisherI contacted doesn't accept unsolicited manuscripts. So I need to go the self-publishing  route. Unfortunately, since my wife and I live on Social Security alone (plus VA for me) I don't have the money needed-- about $2500.
I know from past experience in conducting face-to-face discussions in Galatians that former members of abusive churches (especially) will benefit "bigly" from reading and studying my commentary, Free at Last! I am not looking to profit from this venture, just to make the book available. Any royalties I receive I plan to donate to Wellspring for a "Victims Assistance Fund" to enable those to come to Wellspring who haven't the funds needed (most of their money has usually been given to their abuser).
Any funds contributed to this campaign will be greatly appreciated! I really want to get the life-freeing message of Galatians in the hands of all who need it.
Thank you.
