Former Alcoholic Launches Kickstarter Campaign To Self-Publish Memoir Of Religious Salvation
Petoskey, MI – Chase Reed, an author and recovering alcoholic, this week officially launched a Kickstarter campaign for garnering widespread support and financial backing for publishing his book ‘Young, Drunk, and Chased’, which aims to illustrate his days as an alcoholic and what his belief in God did to save him from a destructive lifestyle.
‘Young, Drunk, and Chased’ is a memoir about a suffering marriage, the potential loss of a daughter, and a seemingly hopeless situation. The book is a detailed chronology of Reed’s days as an alcoholic and also provides advice to both parents of addicts and to addicts themselves. The author provides analogies of addiction and different ways in which, in his view, God uses the weakest moments we have to help others.
“I am not concerned about making money from my book, but I am concerned about saving lives”, said Reed. “If I can get this story out to just one struggling alcoholic or addict who is open to help, then I believe it could change their whole outlook on things. I am also convinced that parents and family of those struggling with addiction can benefit from the contents of this story.”
Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. Everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. ‘Backers’ who support a project on Kickstarter get an inside look at the creative process, and help that project come to life. Typically, Backers get to choose from a variety of unique rewards offered by the project creator. Rewards vary from project to project, but often include a copy of what is being produced (CD, DVD, book, etc.) or an experience unique to the project.
All ‘Backers’ of the Young, Drunk, and Chased Kickstarter campaign will receive ‘Rewards’ ranging from an E-Book on Amazon, iBooks, or Nook for a pledge of $25 or more to a signed copy of the book once, published, for a pledge of $100 or more. The campaign seeks between $2,500-$3,500 or more in order to secure a publishing package with sufficiently large enough marketing plan to make the book a success.
The Kickstarter campaign is officially open until August 31, 2016.
