THE STORY:

Steve Berman wrote -

Alex Jeffers has been living at a subsistence-level for several years now. A talented author and graphic designer, his clinical depression and agoraphobia have made it extremely difficult for him to leave his small studio apartment in Rhode Island to find work. The depression also makes him reluctant to seek out benefits from social services. He has made several open declarations about harming himself and has been hospitalized after the police arrived at his last wellness check.

It is this crowd-fundraising goal to provide a sum of money that will enable Alex to stabilize his life: money to pay for a family member or good friend to spend time in Rhode Island and convince Alex to enroll for Mental Illness and Social Security Disability and other services; to cover his past due utilities and rent; and provide him with food.

Who am I? My name is Steve Berman. I am both a friend of Alex's and have employed his freelance skills and published his books. I wish I could afford to keep Alex as a full-time employee but my press is a small one and so his income from us is sporadic. Btw, Lethe Press does not keep a dime of revenue on any of Alex's writing--we offer him a 100% royalty rate.
