Need: Assistance in publishing inspirational book "Not Dead, Delivered" by author Valdeen Shears-Neptune--survivor of Domestic Violence
Hi my name is Valdeen Shears-Neptune. I am a mother of six, a journalist and an author of two yet to be published books. The first I chose to write, the second--"Not Dead, Delivered"-- was given to me by God. I am in need of basic funding to print/publish my book and get my message out there.
I am also the assistant secretary/public relations officer with a survivors' support group "Reaching Out" in Chase Village, Chaguanas, Trinidad and Tobago.
We are bent on making a difference, changing the conversation, the focus from dwelling on the situation to empowerment and radically changing the mindset of all, the abused and the abusers.
I feel that it is my duty to enlighten and empower women on what got me through my years of abuse, what changed my mindset from being a victim to being a spiritual survivor. What continues to being my source of strength. I really do need just the start-up funding for my book and would prefer that anyone interested in assisting contact the publishers, whose numbers i can provide when needed.
Ideally I wanted to launch on the day of our group's Rally September 15th, 2012 at Harris Promenade, San Fernando, however my next goal is to be launched by or during October--Domestic Violence Awareness Month or on November 25th, 2012 International Day Against Violence Against Women.
Thanking God first and you second for any and all assistance,
