What compels you to get out of bed in the morning?
What drives you to do great and amazing things?
For me, it’s the people in my life and the projects we create. I need to be constantly creating, expanding, and forging ahead in order to feel fulfilled. Without that, I feel empty. I also like filling needs that I see around the world. I desire to empower everyone I know and help them be the very best they can be.
For over ten years now, I’ve been an active participant in La Leche League, attachment parenting groups, and homeschooling groups. A consistent theme that I’ve heard over and over is that there is a tremendous lack in children’s and young adult (YA) books with homeschoolers in them. My own always-homeschooled children and I have agreed. Publishing companies, on the other hand, don’t agree.
Rather than complain and do nothing, I decided to be proactive and change this. I started my own publishing company, Do Life Right, Inc. Since I was an unknown in the publishing world, yet had a bunch of manuscripts of my own, I decided to start with those (rather than get other authors hopes and dreams up without the proof that I’d be able to follow through on my promises). I now have three books in my Wright on Time series of children’s chapter books published, and I’ve been accepting submissions from other authors for nearly a year.
I now have a proven business model and I’m ready to expand with even more authors’ books! It’s a very exciting stage. As with all businesses at this stage, the best thing that can happen is an influx of capital in order to accelerate that growth and catapult the business to the next level.
Thus, I started a crowdfunding KickStarter campaign to “kick start” the publishing of the amazing manuscripts I want to publish. Please be a part of this world-changing endeavor. With a mere $5 from you and all of your friends, we can easily reach this goal and get interesting and adventurous fiction books about realistic homeschoolers to the kids who have been craving them.
Let’s show the big publishing companies just how wrong they were about the public’s desire for homeschool fiction!
