This book project will be written by me at home or in other locations while wearing yoga pants and an inside-out Tshirt.

I've written approximately 1/3 of this book and will need about 6 months to complete the rest. Expect books by the end of this year.

Here is a chart outlining how the raised monies will be used.

Seriously, though, I make my living writing so I can use a portion of my time giving to causes and communities I'm passionate about. If you're a woman of color or queer (or both!) please let me know if I can support you with any of my skills. You'll find my resume here. Contact me through my website .

The women in the book include:

Good lord you're funny. I want the book, but I'm basically paying you for the movie I just got to watch on your site. xoxo
