A Mother's Dream
Organized by: Aliana Richards
Hello, my name is Aliana and I am an aspiring writer. For years, I have had a story locked inside of me that I was unable to be released until I had my daughter in 2008. In 2009, I began writing the story of Ivory Rayne. Her story is about the life of a single mother or "baby mama". After being a single parent myself, I realized women often get a bad rap for not being married. They are judged before understanding exactly how they became alone on their journey of parenthood. Confessions: The Ivory Rayne Story is a book about her journey through the accounts of the past. We experience her life's journey from hurt to love to rebirth. Her story will give a voice to single mothers and their story. Now, that I have completed my book I am ready to move on to the next step of publishing. This is where I am asking for your help. As a single parent, I live paycheck to paycheck which makes it difficult to budget for anything else. I have researched the self-publishing costs and it would be $2,000. These funds would be used for the editing, publishing, and marketing of my book. If you find it in your heart to donate, please provide me your email address and I would be happy to send you a copy of the first chapter. I thank you in advance for helping me achieve my dream of becoming a published author. Help spread the word!
