Towards publishing fees

£2,600 of £2,600 goal

Raised by 88 people in 22 months
Hi my name is Faye. I am want to raise money towards publishing my first book. I already have a contract but being a new author they have asked for a certain amount towards publishing costs. At this present time, i don`t have the funds,  but it is important to so many of my family that this book gets published, it helped me heal. My children have autisum and other issues that have affected us as a family. I want to use this book to raise awareness of many things associated with there conditions. My wider family has Huntingtons disease and we have lost so many family members.... so all dedications in the book are to honor those we lost and to make those loved ones realise how important they were to all of us. Mental health issues are so prelivant in todays society and these issues our family have gone through, affect so many others all over the world. But most of all I did it for me to get over my issues with writing and to let everyone know what ever your issues, disability, gender or colour, you matter. With so much bad happening in the world,  to make positive change for all, we find our little voice and make it heard. I am hoping my book will help many others by showing the good things. I cant say much about the book due to the legalities of contracts. But seeing my children and all the childrens faces light up when i told them they are special to me and i love and believe in them and they deserve a place in the book, it is worth swollowing my pride and asking for this help at this time. If you are able to help that would be very much appriciated But the most important goodbye in this book is my daughter Amy who i have carried a grief inside for 21 years and this is my way of finally saying goodbye and honouring her memory forever. many thanks Faye  Please be aware that I do have a weakness in punctuation and spelling. I have had this problem since childhood. I will not let it hold me back. #autism #aspergers #childcare #anxiety #newauthor #christmas #storytime #happykids #emotion #selfrecovery

Hi all book is a published book on 31st of may 2018 that's just under 3days to go.
Thank you for all your help with raising funds wether through shares or donations some of the money I put in when I could. There have been a total of 84 donations to the campaign some have donated more than once, I am blessed to have received this help.
With so many very important causes out there in the world it is so very hard to stand out amongst the big ones.
But Autism, Anxiety and mental health awareness are a big major one for me personally because of my family.
I truly hope my book can give a light hearted way of raising awareness for these ever pressing issues that are more issues because of lack of support or funding for the indevidual or families that have to deal with them every day.
I put alot of thought into how I would like the book to be.
There are also many different opinions
Expressed.in varied different ways on these very subjects. Whether in the news
In the form of book or by professionals or actually autistic people themselves.
They all build up a picture of changes to the way that people are perseaved, and a much bigger picture of long diagnosis times lack of mental health suport in the most needed of times.i thinks everything adds value to the debate of these subjects. Even my book.
So today no photos or videos attached
Just an update from a mum who wants to add something different in to highlighting these issues while learning to over come the lack of support and just have fun when we are doing it.
This is why I have been putting myself out Thier not only with the book but to raise funds for it too.
So any help with donations shares or retweets over the next three days will be vital to me to Finnish raising funds and hitting the end target of £2600 only £240 left
Please keep up with shares and donations.

Much love Faye xxx

Please continue To Share or Donate
I think not just the book it's self but the go fund me has given me such a blessing to raise awareness not only for autism anxiety and mental health, But many other disabilities both visible and invisible.
This is the area I have made beautiful connections with others over, hearing others stories and journeys talking about
Mental health issues with so many people adults kids, really so very many.
Thank you to all who have stories and share together we can all make a huge difference.
Today Niki faced another challenge which before we haven't been able to do because of her anxiety.That was swimming lesson her first one and she got in the water started with a noodle then a float then a full width without anything doing front crawl.
I was just so very proud am honoured to be witness to it.
Face underwater even when it went up her nose and made her cough she had this look of steerly determination to keep trying. The picture I share today is the look of sheer joy after her lesson I almost cryed at the swimming pool this time not overwhelmed by the anxiety attacks that happened so often before.
She loved her swimming coach because she said that instead of telling her she did it wrong she showed her how to improve .
This is the difference when another person is possitive she does not feel like she is bad which inturn lowers anxiety
And she can show her best ability.
I hope this possitiveltly can be shown to all kids and adults that have difficulties like my children so they all can be the best version of themselves not for anyone else but for the inner feelings that make them feel good and worth it.
I would also like to give a huge mention to my husband Nik for without his backing and support we would not be this far.
Also to my son Josh his phone calls everyday and chats with me and his dad,
are so very important to us, he is so level headed and gives us another prospective on things we love debating and talking about so many different things, we are so proud of him and all he has achieved.
Jake had an issue at school today but was brave to speak to adults he is not familiar with so hopefully it will be deblt with quickly tommorrow.
Share or donations thankyou

Love too you all Faye xxx
Many thanks again
