Help fund the publishing of Every Minute is a New Day: The Language of Dementia on Kickstarter today. Only a week left to help. We’re halfway to our goal. With your help we can make it by the 22nd of August.
All funds go directly towards the publishing and marketing of the book. Once the book is published 20% of all royalties will go to support Alzheimer’s research and education. Every dollar counts. Tell your friends and coworkers to give $1 or $5, no more than a latte.
Together we can ensure that the people have a positive message about dementia so we can change the conversation, challenge the stigma.

I’ve had a few questions lately about wanting me to detail the plan for the publishing funds. In an attempt to remain transparent in this whole process, here is an outline of my publishing and marketing plan:
Audiobook recording and release to Amazon and then later Audible
Worldwide press release to over 500 media outlets
Large color print ads
New York Times Sunday
Radio and television interviews
Google search terms
Five international book shows:
Book Return ability to retail outlets buying hard copies of book
100% Royalties to author
in order to ensure larger portion of proceeds go to Alzheimer’s research
Amazon “look inside” feature.
Professional cover art
Copyright and registering ISBN
There are more features that I am pursuing in the publishing process. But this is what I am aiming to accomplish with kickstarter funds.
